This guy is the real deal…
Great quality, amazing prices, super reliable and most importantly. He knows how to measure for good looks but also comfort. I got measured in Washington DC, he took my numbers and less than a month later I got my suits, shirts and sports jacket. The quality was better than I expected. He’s super professional, reliable and always answers texts and calls.
I would highly recommend it. Take your measurements when he’s in town. You ll be happy you did.

Fantastic Tailor
Oct 2021
I would highly recommend Dev to anyone looking for tailored fashion clothing in Phuket.
He is in tune with the customer and his/her needs.
Went in for a Blazer and finished up with the Blazer, four tailored shirts and two pairs of pants. Fantastic. Super Comfortable and Super Happy.
You will not be disappointed.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE AND VALUE
Sep 2021
This place is the REAL DEAL, a genuine haberdashery! My wife and I visited the shop in Phuket in 2019 and I bought 3 suits, 3 pairs of pants, a vest, and some ties. The quality and value were exceptional.

My experience was so excellent, that when Dev emailed me and said he was going to visit NYC in a trunk show, I met up with him last month (September 2021). He re-measured me even though he already had my measurements at the shop, just to make sure everything would fit. I ended up purchasing 4 suits, 4 pairs of pants, a vest and ties. Last week I received my package from Star Tailor House and I was amazed at how great every was packaged and how the suits and pants fit. AMAZING JOB, EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! GOD-Willing my wife and will be able to return to Phuket and visit again soon.

Back in 2016 I purchased 2 suits from Star tailor house while on holiday and till this day I still wear the suits. Quality is great as is the customer service. Just recently I made an order for another suit from measurements I had taken 4 years ago. I requested a tiny adjustment on the shoulder and they were able to accommodate my needs. The suit fits perfect and I am very happy with it. Even through covid they still deliver the great customer service and quality suit. I’m in Australia and delivery was very fast. Thanks again

Dev is a true professional at his craft

Dev at Star Tailor House does a fantastic job providing great clothes for good prices.
They have lots of fabrics of different style, color, and material. The fitting was easy and the fit is perfect. I had two sport coats made and two pair of trousers. I could not be happier! I highly recommend Star Tailor House Phuket!

Dev is a true professional at his craft

Dev is a true professional at his craft. He thinks of every little detail and walks you through step by step in picking it out. He has so many choices that it can be overwhelming at times to pick out exactly what you are looking for. Dev knows his stuff and he knows what makes a well made suit. I highly recommend either stopping into his shop or reaching out to him through FaceTime to get perfectly tailored clothes. I have done multiple orders from the US and everything has fit perfectly

Star Tailor House is fantastic

Star Tailor House is fantastic. I visited three years ago in person and recently got 4 pairs of trousers made and shipped to me straight to the US. The pants are extremely high quality and their measurements are very precise. I highly recommend them. Please support this wonderful business that has worked hard to keep their doors open through the closure of Patong Beach.

Star Tailor House Patong – Custom Suit Maker Reviewed

An AMAZING experience!

On my not so recent trip now to Patong Thailand I wanted to try out some of the famed tailoring houses.

In total Trevor [my travel companion, and this site’s Travel Editor] and I went to 10 different custom tailor houses in Patong Beach and are reviewing our top 5!

Review Of Star Tailor House – Patong, Thailand

Star Tailor House Shopfront

As “downtown” Patong is not overly large, all the shops are relatively close to wherever you’ll be staying.  The Star Tailor House is no different, being just a five minute walk from the apartment we were staying at right on the beach.

Compared to other shops in our top 5 it was a little dated, however their fabric section was larger than most of the other shops we went to.

Fabric selection at Star Tailor House

I especially liked the silk blend fabrics with embroidered flowers, which could make an insane tuxedo jacket if one were so inclined.

Initial Visit & First Fitting In One Swoop!

As with any custom suit, the first thing you’ll need to do is select the fabric you’re looking to have your garment(s) made from.

I knew that I wanted a lightweight fabric to have a short suit made from [see our buying guide and the importance of having a plan].

Paul Anthony selecting purple suit fabric

Having an already quite extensive wardrobe and not being shy of colors, I selected this deep-purple linen blend suiting fabric, with the colorful rainbow geometric lining.

What made the experience at Star Tailor House different than anywhere else is that the first fitting was done on the first visit!

After the fabric had been selected and measurements taken, we were treated to a drink while a tailor mocked up base garments. As with all my suits, I mentioned my “forward rolled shoulders” and sleeve pitch issues, but this time directly to the tailor who’d be making my clothes. I’ve never had a suit truly bench made by the likes of Benson & Clegg in London, for example, but this one-to-one service was great and especially for the price point.

All told we were at the shop for about an hour on our first visit it included the first fitting too. This is an overall net savings in time, but you should budget at least this or even more time if you are not quite sure yet of what suit you’re in search of.

Second Fitting

Only a few days later the second fitting was ready to be done.

Getting shorts shorter to hit at knee

I wanted my shorts a little shorter, and there were some changes needed to the jacket too.

First fitting on purple suit jacket

At this point the jacket was sleeveless, so the jacket was tried as just the body, and then the sleeves are roughed on.

Sleeves being attached to jacket body in second fitting

I could already see that they had a great fit on my back line, and the chest piece was very close too!

Third Fitting For Bespoke Suit Jacket

Only a day later I was back for the final fitting to the final sleeve length and to set where all the buttons would be on the sleeves [I went with 5 kissing buttons, all with functional button holes].

Getting sleeve length just right by Thai tailor

Furthermore, the jacket button position was also finally set.

Tailor pinning sleeves on linen jacket

Sleeve length is so often incorrect and is one of the simplest tailoring fixes, but it is worth getting it right the first time you buy or go custom. See our guide here on how a suit should fit.

Collecting Finished Custom Suit & Shirt

Only two days later [as we had a tour of James Bond Island] the suit was ready to be picked up.

Paul Anthony in purple linen short suit

Both the purple short suit and custom dress shirt fit spot on.

I feel they really nailed the fit, and manged to give me some shape which some of the other tailors we tried had some issues with.

Star Tailor House Suit Bag

Before leaving the shop they took some final measurements to keep on file, and sent me on my way with this nice suit bag. Below you can also see some of the fabrics I was oh-so-tempted to get a tuxedo / smoking jacket made from…next time!

Overall Thoughts Of The Process, People & Product

Star Tailor House is great for anyone looking for a well fitting custom suit, while being in a shop that has a nice array of fabrics [I guess mainly due to the face they make both male and female clothes]. Furthermore, for a larger gentleman like myself I felt that the they gave me the best silhouette of all the tailors we tried, so may be an important consideration for you too.

Time & Number Of Fittings: From start to finish the process was the quickest at Star Tailor House due to the first fitting being on the day we went in.

Service / People: As with all the top 5, the owners and staff were extremely nice people.

Options Both Fabric & Design Points: Had one of the best / most varied fabric selections, and standard options for customization. If you like collar stays be sure to specify that you want open working ones.

Cost: The cost for the suit was right around $300 – 500 in line with the other quality Top 5 tailoring houses that made our best of Patong list.

Quality Of Finished Garment: Overall I was very happy with the suit and dress shirt I got from Star Tailor House. Both fit very well and have held up well over time, as I’ve worm them several times already.

Total / Value For Money: As with all the top 5, they offered great value for money, and I’d definitely go back.
