What would the price be for a couple of cotton shirts large size. I know that would be very changable, I am just looking for example costs from people who have had some made


Cheers

To be fair, I think you'll find that oakdales reply was to the previous post on the page before, not to the question about cotton shirts.

Maybe you are correct Dannie, but the man in question have had plenty of time to say so.

I'm sure Mr oak had a reason for his reply. I am used to forums, and understand how time lines can become blurred.

I ask the question because people say they are saving a lot of money, but there is no mention of prices.

perhaps I need to get off my lazy ar** and go have a chat

The shop in question,the one highlighted in the picture at the end of page 1 of this thread, is the one I frequently use. Shirts cost no more than 800THB for their standard (and extensive) range of cotton blend fabrics.

So Oakdale was right, not quite sure why Norseman felt so compelled to jump on him for answering the question, are we supposed to now judge where page breaks will occur and navigate for posters accordingly?

There is only one way to get comparative prices and that is to go yourself into numerous shops, take a sample of the material you want and ask for a quote.

Thanks all for confirming the shop in the photo I posted is correct. How long does one suggest for having a suit made here. Can I go in for multiple fittings within a 5-6 day period? This is how I've typically purchased suits in Bangkok.

Yeah, I should have been a bit clearer about that. I was wondering about examples for the shop on Soi 80. I will take my own advice and get off my lazy ar** and go and have a chat. 555

They can get a suit done within that time frame. You will probably only need one intermediate fitting after they've taken your initial mesaurements, then maybe some final amendments, so "multiple" isn't really so many.
