Where is a place that makes good quality suits for a low price?

I'm going to bangkok soon and I've had a bunch of friends tell me to be sure and pick up some custom suits that are cheap. I looked online and seems like there are a bunch of places that will scam you. Does anyone have and recommendations on places to check out? Also how much should I be looking to pay for a suit?

    There literally are thousands of places to go to and probably even more scammers. Also as a little side note, just because the fabric at any given tailor is labeled 100% wool or some other expensive material, doesn't mean it is.

    I went to a place called Crown Tailor that was way legit right next to Nana Plaza. He showed me some material that was marked high quality but when it burned it would turn a funny color. I paid about $530 for a three piece suit with two shirts and they gave me a free tie and travel bag. All custom fitted and done in three days back to back because I was only there for a few days. I just wore it out for the first time last weekend at my buddy's wedding and it was a hit. Would definitely recommend. Look them up on TripAdvisor too.

    Let me be the next to add to the remarks of Crown Tailor. Went to all these places listed above, and I have to agree, all 3 are completely legit, as well as great in what they do. The winning reason I chose Crown over Raja & Rajawongse is that they have a US travelling tailor program where I can meet them, get re fitted & order some more clothes, which in the long run was what I was aiming for.

    Suits were perfect, got them in 4 days and will be scheduling an appointment on their next stop state side!

    Rajawongse Clothier on Sukhumvit is one of the most well-known ones.

    Hanging on their walls are pictures of George Bush getting custom suits made there.

    I've gotten one suit made there and maybe 20 shirts over the past few years. I can guarantee that these guys do top quality work, and don't scam.

    I'm not sure what prices on suits are these days, but I'm guessing around $500.

    A GOOD tailor won't get you a suit made in a days. A proper suit takes 2-3 weeks as you have to come in for multiple fittings.

    Definite, there are thousands of custom tailors in Bangkok and this is not simple task to find reliable tailors among Bangkok tailors. But I would like to recommend Tom's Fashion, 19, Soi Preeda, Sukhumvit Soi 8, Bangkok 10110, Thailand, because i used this tailor services during to my Bangkok trip last year on July 2013. They did great job for me and really his work is very fine and quality also superb. Budget is also reliable.

    They make perfect suits and do not scam you :) it´s not the cheapest, but very high quality. You can find a lot of recommendations from tripadvisor:

    My friend and I stopped here one day on the way to Lumpini Stadium:

    Brioni At Bangkok
    http://abprofessional.net/brioni-at-bangkok/

    My friend works for the City of Los Angeles and got 4 professional souits made for her there. They measured her that morning, later that afternoon on the way to the stadium we stopped by for a final check with some samples then a few nights later they were delivered to our hotel before our flight left. Very professional and helpful and the quality really rocks. She still wears the outfits today over 3 years later. While you wait they'll offer you a water/beer and show you tons of samples of fabric and design.

    As you found out there's a lot of places, if they will scam you I can't say. But I never had any problems but found that the quality often is more trusted in the "real" stores rather than in the markets. But take a look around and see for yourself what "suits" you.
