What’s going on guys? 😀
Just a fast post here about where I buy my clothes for dating in Bangkok, some guy asked me about good places in Bangkok for buying shirts. Here is my answer.
Personally I only use shirts. The reason is that t-shirts are for children and sweaters are just to damn hot for Thailand. If I’m wearing jeans I need a thin shirt to get the heat out somewhere. 😛
I have one guy in Bangkok that makes all my shirts. This guy is an awesome dude with a big heart. He has great humor, a good service mind and he’s not happy before I’m happy. That’s how you do good business!
I know there is a million tailor shops in Bangkok. A lot of them are good, but some are not good at all and you should be selective about where you buy your shirts.
All over Bangkok you will see signs where it says “Get free shirts if you buy a dress” or “only 300 baht for one shirt”.
Don’t take these offers. Most of them are shit, and you will end up with some synthetic bullshit fabric that will make your days miserable in the Thailand heat! Just imagine being inside a tent in 35 degrees. That’s what you’ll get for 300 baht…
What you want is cotton. Quality cotton that breath in the Thailand heat. That way you won’t feel like you are inside an oven…
You also want a fabric that is very thin. That way it breath even more and it feels very light to wear.
George the Tailor
This is the guy I’m using. You’ll find him in Sukhumvit soi 15 just 50 meter in on the left side. Click here for his TripAdvisor profile.
His not the cheapest guy in town, but you get what you pay for. I usually pay between 1000 – 1500 baht per shirt when I buy 4-5 shirts in bulk. The price also depends on what fabric and pattern I choose.
I also bought a dark-blue suit from him some time ago. I got that for 16.000 baht with two shirts included. This suit is absolutely amazing. It’s more comfortable to wear than sweatpants. I’m not shitting you… I use it whenever I hit the clubs up at RCA and I feel amazing.
Just for the record, I’m not saying George his the best in town, you will always find something better. But I’m happy with his service and he cracks me up whenever I visit him. So I will continue to use him. He already have my measurements so all I have to do is to walk in and find a pattern that I like.
Yes. I use jeans in Thailand, and I don’t fold them up anymore. I’ve been here a year now so I start to get used to the heat anyway. If I came here on holiday I would probably get a heat stroke in jeans. So if jeans are too hot for you just wear some casual shorts. That’s totally fine.
Most of my jeans are light blue, dark blue or black. I also have a couple of matt red jeans that fits very well with my white shirts.
I usually buy my jeans at Terminal 21 or at Siam Center. I’m a pretty slim guy so I need slim size jeans. That is not always easy to find, but Terminal 21 and Siam Center have everything.
I think I bought some jeans at MBK at some point too. That place is massive, and you’ll find anything you are looking for.
I wear classic dress shoes whenever I’m out flirting or when I hit a club. If I’m out doing nothing I usually wear my Converse shoes or slippers.
Personally I like the watches that are thin and with a big surface. Like the one to the right.
I’m not really a fan of that ‘Rolex look’ when it comes to watches. I don’t have the money for them either… 😛 😛
Okay, that’s it for this time. Remember to check out George the tailor next time you are in Bangkok. That guy make some really quality shirts. I recommend him. 🙂
