I recently found myself in urgent need of a smart skirt
and for anyone who knows me they will know that this would have to be for
some special reason, as I hate skirts. My past experience of tailors in
Pattaya has not been good (although I am sure there are many good tailors in
the town that I haven’t tried) so I chose Classic Tailor as I had seen
several items of clothes they had made for an associate. I also know that
they have been in business since 1965 so are very experienced.

When I walked into the shop I was immediately impressed
by the choice of material on offer, straight off the shelf, or if that
isn’t enough, there are several books of alternative materials to choose
from. I was lucky with the colour and texture I wanted, as it was easy to
No one feels too comfortable about being measured,
especially us ladies, but Marlowe performed this task quickly and
efficiently so I didn’t have time to become embarrassed. It was like a
finely tuned operation. Marlowe measured and told his assistant the details,
and she did a quick sketch and jotted down the measurements. I was expecting
him to say “scalpel!” at any moment!
Two days later, ‘voila’ my skirt was complete. I was
amazed it was a perfect fit first time and needed no alterations. I asked
Marlowe if he can supply tailor made clothes to people that don’t reside
in Thailand, and he answered, “Yes, all we need are the measurements and a
picture or description of what the customer requires.” Once they have your
measurements at Classic Tailor you can order clothes at anytime, as all
measurements are kept in a database of past clients. It’s easy, just order
by email or fax and the garments will be made and posted to the customer
anywhere in the world.
It’s a great opportunity to get a wonderful wardrobe of
high-class quality clothes, in gorgeous materials and tailor made to make
the best advantage of whatever shape and size you happen to be.
