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”….
