There are many tailors based in Bangkok, and with such a wide selection available for bespoke tailoring connoisseurs it requires a unique and special type of tailor shop to stand out in this crowded market. Golden Wool rises above its competition thanks to the meticulous and persistent nature of its manager, Khun Pooh. Her dedication to ensuring even the smallest of details adhere to the highest of standards is impressive, and that is clearly evident with the carefully organised and stylish nature of her store. Golden Wool remains proud of their status as a tailor shop owned and managed purely by Thais and seek to demonstrate the quality and craftsmanship that is achievable in this city renowned for its bespoke tailors.
Established in 1988, Golden Wool is a 2nd generation bespoke tailors that boasts three master tailors who each specialize in a specific area of tailoring. Style advice is provided by the keen eye of Khun Pooh, who has demonstrated time and time again that her sense of style and flair is great for those seeking assistance regarding which suit, and shirt style works best for them. With dedicated tailors for jackets, pants and shirts, clients can rest assured that their measurements are being recorded by true masters of their craft, and that every step possible is being taken to ensure that each garment fits the wearer impeccably.
Another fundamental factor which truly allows Golden Wool to shine is that all their work is completed in their own dedicated factory located just above their storefront. The fact that there is no outsourcing and no external factors impacting upon their clothes ensures that Golden Wool can maintain the highest of standards and adhere to a level of quality control that completely overshadows their neighboring rivals.
With suits starting at around 6,900 baht, Golden Wool offers an affordable entry-level without losing out on the quality normally associated with bespoke suits. These suits start with a simple wool blend, with prices ranging to upwards of 10,000 baht, clients can experience much higher levels of fabric quality. All their suits are fully customizable, and their selection of jacket linings are impressive, where the design can also be matched to the pocket square to further the unique identity of the suit. Golden Wool takes care to ensure that each bespoke suit is completely tied to the personality of the wearer, and that no two suits are alike. With a plethora of button options, including horn, and individual stitching in a variety of colours available, even the smallest of details can be fine tuned to give each garment an exclusive appearance. This level of detail is also provided in their selection of shirts, with a great number of collar styles and fabrics available all for a reasonable price of between 1,200 baht to 3,000 baht.
Aside from the standard bespoke tailor items like suits and shirts, Golden Wool is also adept at producing waistcoats for those who desire a three-piece suit, quality overcoats made from cashmere, and also women’s dresses and business attire. All of these items are given the traditional high-quality attention that has seen Golden Wool become a top destination for those looking for quality clothing.
One of the most enticing aspects of visiting Golden Wool tailor shop is that it does not stand alone, as adjacent is their wonderful café, Golden Mango, which serves high quality refreshments and delicious food. All too often, especially in Bangkok, tailor shops are small and cramped, with very little room to browse, let alone enjoy some food and drinks while you consider style and fabric choices. Golden Wool has a store that exudes style and class, with tasteful art décor adorning the walls which promotes an atmosphere that lends itself spectacularly well to the overall ambiance. Another delightful feature is the shop mascot, a cute little cat named Bob who is sure to charm anyone who happens upon him in either the cafe or the tailor shop.
It is fair to say that if you are looking for a tailor who can guide you through the process of finding a style that truly matches your physique and personality, then Khun Pooh, and her talented team of master tailors are the perfect choice. Golden Wool is definitely one of the finest Thai bespoke tailors in all of Bangkok.
