Cheap Suits in Bangkok – Should You Get One?

One of the things Bangkok is known for is cheap suits – i.e. cheap custom-tailored suits. Not that all suits here are “cheap suits” but that you can get suits for cheap. What is considered “cheap” will vary from person to person, and so will the experience of different people who have had suits tailored here.

So does “cheap” mean poor quality, or can you actually get a well-made suit for a competitive price? Let’s delve into the landscape of cheap suits in Bangkok and help you make an informed decision before you meet with a tailor.

The Allure of Cheap Suits in Bangkok

It’s easy to be attracted to cheap prices. Why wouldn’t you want five custom-tailored suits for less than $500? Let alone the price of custom suits in Western countries, walk down a touristy street and you will likely find that one shop might be charging you half what the next shop is offering for a suit, or even less. You can get good quality suits here for “cheap” prices, but when you’re talking about a $100 suit that’s tailored for you within a day, it’s hard to point out any positives aside from the price. Let’s look at some issues with these “ultra-cheap” suits:

The Risks of Suspiciously Cheap Suits

While it is possible to find great deals, you’re not going to find a suit tailored for you well for $100. These tailors will absolutely need to be cutting corners to offer such rock-bottom prices. Here are a few common issues with these ultra-cheap suits:

  • Subpar Fabric: Low-quality materials that feel uncomfortable and wear out quickly.
  • Poor Fit: Tailors may rush the process, resulting in a suit that doesn’t fit well.
  • Inconsistent Craftsmanship: Inexperienced or hurried tailors can lead to poor craftsmanship.

These problems can leave you with a suit that looks good initially but deteriorates rapidly, defeating the purpose of having a suit custom-tailored in the first place.

Getting a Quality Suit at a Competitive Price

Despite the issue with these $100 suits, it is possible to find excellent value in Bangkok. The key is to choose a reputable tailor who balances affordability with quality, keeping in mind that more expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better either. Here’s what to look for:

Experienced Tailors

Opt for tailors with a solid reputation. Skilled tailors such as Tailors Bangkok can deliver well-fitted suits without cutting corners. Our suits are competitively-priced, but not because we sacrifice on quality. How? Read on to find out about our unique business model which allows us to save on significant overhead costs – savings which give you access to high quality clothing for very competitive prices.

Quality Materials

See that the tailor offers a range of fabric options, from basic to premium. Tailors Bangkok has a wide range of fabrics that you can choose from – including budget-friendly options and premium options, but we’re not here to make you a suit from a fabric that’s going to last a week. Whether you opt for one of our $220 suits or an $800 one, our hope is to serve you again, so you can rest assured that we will tailor your suit to last.

Transparent Pricing

A trustworthy tailor will offer transparent pricing without hidden costs. At Tailors Bangkok, our starting price of 8,000 THB (~$220) is clearly indicated on our website. Once your design and fabric choices are confirmed, you don’t have to worry about any hidden costs.

We will also take your input on fit as your measurements are taken, so that your custom garments can be tailored to fit you comfortably. This way, your suit can be made to fit you well and to reflect your individuality.


Tailors Bangkok operates exclusively through an on-site tailor service. This means we forego operating a brick-and-mortar tailor shop in a prime location, which often comes with hefty rental expenses. Instead, we come to you for each step of the process. We come to you for your initial consultation and fittings, and your tailored clothes are delivered to you as well. There’s no longer any need to make your way through Bangkok traffic 3-4 times just to have a suit tailored.

Competitive Pricing

Tailors Bangkok’s prices are highly competitive, but with us, you can get exceptional value without sacrificing on quality. A well-tailored suit from Tailors Bangkok starts at just 8,000 THB (~$220), wherein the price will primarily depend on your choice of fabric, with various qualities to choose from. Opt for one of our mega bundles for even greater value for money.

How are we able to offer custom suits for so cheap? The other benefit of operating exclusively through an on-site tailor service and foregoing a prime physical storefront is that we’re able to offer highly competitive prices. In other words, you benefit directly from our reduced rental overhead costs when you choose to have suits tailored with Tailors Bangkok.

Should You Get a Cheap Suit in Bangkok?

It’s definitely worth getting a suit tailored in Bangkok, but whether you should get an affordably-priced suit in Bangkok depends on what you consider “cheap”. If you’re expecting to get a well-tailored suit for $100, then you’re likely out of luck. The fact is, however, that if you have a more reasonable budget for a tailored suit – around 8,000 THB or $220 – then yes, you can expect high quality tailoring – suits that will last. At Tailors Bangkok, you can expect high quality custom suits from just 8,000 THB. With experienced tailors, quality materials, and competitive pricing, we offer the perfect balance of affordability and excellence.
