Why is Bangkok a popular choice for tailor made clothing?

Bangkok is a popular metropolitan. Tourists, diplomats, expats, more often than not, love to reside in Bangkok or travel to it. The cost of living is highly competitive as compared to the West or Far East. One of Bangkok’s allures is its tailor made clothes industry. There is a comprehensive structure of supporting industries in place such as material procurements, craftsmen and cutters that provide Bangkok with a competitive edge to have reasonably high quality custom made clothing at a fraction of the price available elsewhere.

Why Buy Custom Tailored Clothing from Monte Carlo Tailors?

  1. Its custom made exclusively for you. The clothes come from the measurements that are taken off your body, which is personally a unique form. Therefore the clothes will only fit one person perfectly, and that is you.
  2. You can customize it the way you want. Would like to have tapered fit on a double breasted suit with side vents? Or how about that light blue shirt that goes ‘pocketless’ with that ‘forward pleated’ trousers with cuffs? The design limit is limited by your imagination.
  3. Bespoke tailoring at your desired price. Each custom made clothes has two main price variables. The quality of the material used and the quality (including details) of the craftsmanship put into the works. This way you can select the desired price range that you chose, knowing what you are getting, and are satisfied for what you pay for. We believed that our customers are knowledgeable, and strive to provide as much information as possible, giving our customers a unique opportunity to make an informed choice on their own.

If I am ordering online, can I get my measurements to be accurate?

Off-course. There are a number of options for you to take your measurements. One is we have provided detailed guidelines in our measurement instructions section which is step by step and easy to follow. You can ask a friend or make an appointment with a local tailor (although that may not be necessary, it’s not that difficult!) to measure you up using a tape measure. When the measurement comes in with the additional information that we have requested, a keen eye is paid on the unique silhouette of you by a person in the tailoring business for more than 30 years. If, still, we are not sure about something, be ready to hear from us. The second option is if you have visited our store, you would have an order number with you on your card. With that order number, we have kept a record of your measurements. Inform us that order number, or if you have lost it, tell us your name and when around you were at our studio, and we will look for it. Another popular option is to arrange a video skype conference call at your appointed convenient time. Our tailoring expert would take you step by step through the measurement process. Be ready to have order page printed and ready, a friend to help with the measurements and wear comfortable clothes.

Would it be more convenient, next time I re-order online?

Yes. Your measurements would be in our online database. You can make an order without having to take or write the measurements again. In the case that you wish to change a variable, say for example you have lost weight so you stomach is now 2 inches lesser, you can make that corrections online before completing the ordering process.
