You'll be accosted almost everywhere in Bangkok by tailors proclaiming to have the best suits or jackets made at unbelievable prices compared to back home. While the price part might be true, often the rest of it isn't, as the materials used are shoddy, the workmanship lacking, and it really isn't the deal it was cracked up to be. While getting hand-fitted clothing made by a tailor certainly is one reason for shopping in Bangkok, you need to choose wisely, which is all the more reason to make a beeline for Pinky. They've been in business since 1980, use high-quality wool and other fabrics, and you can wander through their three floors checking out the fabrics without being hounded by the salespeople. Pinky can make you a full suit, just pants or shirts, jackets, and whether it is shirts and overcoats for women or tuxedos and suits for men, they do hand-fitting, give personalized service, and you can be assured you are not getting taken to the tailors.
888/40 Ploenchit Road in Mahatun Plaza
- Best Shopping: "To get here take the BTS Skytrain to Ploenchit, and take Exit E2 into the Mahatun Plaza Arcade. You'll see Pinky at the back."
- Recommended as Best Shopping Because: For excellent tailoring without any of the usual Bangkok scams, Pinky is superb.
