Custom made suits with Topasia in Bangkok

When checking the requests we get here on my-thai.org on a frequent basis then the question in regards to reliable custom tailors is one that we come across rather often. That makes sense of course as Thailand is somewhat famous for inexpensive, yet decent quality, custom made suits. While there are many tailors to be found in common tourist areas we tried to find a shop that we not just ‘know’ but actually can recommend due to personal talks and experiences with the owner. This brings us to “Topasia Suit”.

Why do we recommend Topasia?

No, not because we get any commission (hey Top, maybe we have to negotiate that :P) but because we actually went there, talked with the owner (“Top”) and found that this place is the real deal. You won’t get pressured into buying stuff that you don’t want, you won’t see anyone following you around and talking to you outside of the shop and trying to convince you to go in, and you won’t pay an extra tourist charge or pay for the commission of the taxi driver that dropped you off there. You will get a personal consultation, can bring your own ideas and find someone that is willing to listen to you and make things happen to the best of his abilities.

If you’re interested in the background story of Topasia, simply ask for the details once you are there. I’m sure Top is willing to share it with you. It sounds like a nice movie story though. Studied at University, then realized that the field of studies wasn’t interesting in real life, then drove taxis, improved on English skills while doing though, taking marketing / business classes by himself, working as custom tailor from home before being able to open an own shop where it is right now. From zero to hero so to speak. Impressive.

What do I get at Topasia?

You can expect any kind of suit that you can imagine. From old-school, to hipster, from high-society to cool and young. Ideally you would come with an idea or an example on IG or Pinterest and you’d take it from there together with the guys at Topasia suits. They also do both, male and female suits so all your needs will be fulfilled there. All in one stop shop for suits so to speak.

Where is Topasia located?

Topasia is conveniently located within the Suan Luang Square area which is not far away from the famous MBK shopping mall (BTS Skytrain: “National Stadium”, MRT Underground “Sam Yan”). Suan Luang is close to the “I’m Park” open air shopping area next to Chulalongkorn University so it’s a sure no-miss and you’ll certainly be able to find it. You can take a taxi, motorcycle taxi or simply walk from either the BTS or MRT stops.

If you’re going by taxi, show this address to your taxi driver:

TOPASIA Suit ห้อง 121 จุฬา ซอย 16 สวนหลวงสแควร์
Bangkok, Thailand

How to contact Topasia Suit Bangkok?

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. Simply get in touch with them over Facebook and you’ll get a response asap. Walking in could work too of course but why not getting in touch before and making an appointment to make sure you won’t have to wait?

    Hello,
    Thank you for recommending this custom tailor store :) Even though I don’t have any special event to go to that requires me to wear a suit. But, one day after I graduated, this store might be very helpful for me. Also, from your review, I really like that they don’t pressure, and willing to listen to and help the customers in their best abilities. It is important for every stores to do that.

  • Thanks for the comment! :) If you end up going there, say my-thai.org send you ;-)

  • Good timing then! If you end up going there, say you found them here :)

    Nice one, My dad would love this, as he needs to wear suit on the event or work and I love this too.
    Easy to go for me, but I would like to know how much is it cost and I hope it is in reasonable price.

  • I think it depends on the type of suit you’re looking for of course. When I talked with Top he mentioned something around 5k THB – but again that’s probably a rough number and depends on your style.

    Oh, Thank Mr. Sascha.

    You make me want to SUIT-UP, Mr.Sascha. This is so cool, yet, inspiring in a way. I mean, from a taxi driver to own custom tailor, that’s big! #respect I love the phrase “From zero to hero,” simply because the real successful person is not the one who gain the most money, but it is the one who came so far, fail hundreds of time and yet, never give up! Thank you!

  • According to Barney Stinson you got a 83% chance of looking better when suited up! One of the reasons I decided on having this shop on here was the story behind it. I don’t just advertise for random shops, I liked his story and dedication and hence thought he deserves the shout out. Thx for your comment!

    I like the idea that the customers will get a personal consultation, can bring their own ideas to make things happen to the best of abilities. In my opinion, don’t let customers get pressured into buying stuff that their don’t want is what every shop should do too. Sometimes, the staff following me around and make me feel pressured and don’t want to go back their again. I am going to share this article to my dad right away and I am sure that he would love to try one! :) Thank you for sharing this!

  • I have the same feeling. As soon as staff follows me around (creepy!) I don’t want to buy there anymore :-/
