So I've been here for a bit...just revisiting this thread. It is amusing me to to note how many places I visited around here that were already recommended by you and I forgot.
Examples: the speakeasy sky bar is quite nice and I agree that the Vertigo at the Banyan Tree is great. Cramped with people...going to try the restaurant some time soon.
The view from the Baiyoke building (80 something floor) would be good, if it didn't have a cramped, run down feeling to it.
Someone over dinner from the US Embassy recommended Narin, but said it took four fittings, which was just too much for them. I thought that was a good sign, but whatever. Another embassy staff member seconded that he does good work. See aforementioned comments about the quality of such reviews. Oh, and I think they complained about the sleeves being too tight. I may be mis-remembering.
I agree that it is too hot for a suit here unless you work somewhere with air conditioning. Having reread all the emails, I may still go to Tanika for a linen suit.
No one talked about Central Embassy. Weird, weird mall, but the food court in the basement is a good set of training wheels for Thai food.
Um. Other that....could review what it would be good for me to check out clothing-wise for the hive mind?
