Rajawongse, the tailor shop located next to the Landmark Hotel on lower Sukhumvit, is a favourite among members of the diplomatic corps and the
armed forces. Here it is possible to create your own design from a wide array of materials and accessories. Traditional to contemporary, dramatic to exotic, classic to original, you pick your preferred style of garment and fabrics and seasoned tailors Jesse and Victor will create it. Says Jesse, “It is our belief that every single customer should be treated like a V.I.P. From formal wear to business suits and sport coats, our motto always holds true: dress like a winner and you’ll be treated like one.”
And at Rajawongse they know all about winners. “We have made clothing for sports stars, leading lights in the world of film, and visiting statesmen – we have even made suits for both President Bush senior and junior,” confides Jesse.
Quality then is a watchword at this tailor and to maintain high quality Rajawongse operates its own in-house workshop with over 100 cutters and sewing specialists. These talented artisans work with fabrics sourced from the finest mills in Italy and the UK. “For suits, most of the fabrics we carry have a very high wool count,” says Victor. “In our shirts, which we are noted for, we use only the finest Egyptian cotton and shell buttons and we make sure the fit is superb.”
Speaking of which, in terms of fit and adjustment, Rajawongse offers a full after-sales service and is happy to alter garments as the shape of their clients change over the years.
Rajawongse usually requires around a week to make a fine fitting suit but if a traveller has limited time, they can arrange the necessary fittings first and then ship the garment via courier at a later date.
