Our business has been profiled in a television news segment produced for CNBC by FBC Media Services. Watch the report here:

New Ways to Play Travelogue


"Jesse presides over his store with the gentle glamour of a Sikh saint," Osborne writes. "You climb a steep flight of steps from the mayhem of Sukhumvit Road and are greeted by a refined quiet. ... The golfer Vijay Singh has been a customer, as has — less dramatically — the police commissioner of Denmark. George Bush Senior orders suits here. So does Tom Ridge."
— Lawrence Osborne, Condé Nast Traveler

We were named one of the top tailors in Bangkok by the prominent German weekly magazine Bunte.

The Australian

"Ranghöchste Politiker haben sich schon ihren Traumanzug in Bangkok bei Rajawongse Clothier schneidern lassen, darunter die US-Präsidenten Barack Obama und George W. Bush und der schwedische Außenminister Carl Bildt."

"Rajawongse Clothier is a favourite of international statesmen, corporate figures and diplomats. Owners Jesse and Victor are known for producing bespoke tuxedos, suits and shirts, all of which are made to a precise fit, using a wide-variety of materials available in-store."
— Cathay Pacific Discovery Magazine

The Australian

"If it's good enough for George Bush and George W. Bush, it's good enough for us. Rajawongse Clothier, next to the Landmark Hotel and near the Nana BTS Skytrain station, is a narrow shop lined with imposing bolts of fine cashmere, wool and cotton. Jesse and Victor, a Sikh father-and-son combination, have made suits for the Bushes, and for a panoply of US leaders and ambassadors."
— Sian Powell, The Australian

From an article by writer Deborah L. Jacobs that appeared in the Sunday travel section of the Los Angeles Times:

My husband, whose own taste runs to Indian-style banded-collar shirts, produced a sample.

"We can improve upon that," Victor said with an air of authority. And he did. By the time we returned to Bangkok a week later the store was closed for vacation. But there was a shopping bag from Rajawongse waiting for us at our hotel. It contained seven perfectly tailored shirts in fine Egyptian cotton.

Our Danish-speaking customers may read about us in a Novermber 2009 article published in Ekstra Bladet.


"For over three decades, Jesse has combined master craftsmanship with customer-friendly ingenuity and sewed up an array of international clientele that would make Saville Row go green with envy."

"En skräddare som har ett gott rykte om sig och som nått
ända in i Vita huset är skräddaren Rajawongse, beläget mitt i turistkvarteret Nana i Bangkok. Här har familjen Gulati - nu i tredje generationen - i snart 40 år sytt kläder. I dag är det far och son
Jesse och Victor som driver butiken."
