our story

The legacy begins…
Jesse’s father, Iqbal Singh, migrated to Thailand from a town near the Indian-Pakistan border. He settled in Ubon Ratchathani where he opened a textile trading shop near a US Air Force base. Soon, he switched to a tailoring in order to supply the clothing needs of military personnel. This was the period of the Vietnam war and as tensions escalated so did the amount of military personnel at the US Air Force base. As the war came to an end, the US Defense attache’ suggested Iqbal relocate to the capital city, Bangkok.
Moving to the City…
Iqbal relocated to Bangkok near Sukhumvit Soi 4, a close distance from the US embassy on Wireless Road next to the Landmark Hotel Bangkok, where it stands today.
Tailoring Tales…
The rest is history! Ever since it’s inception, statesmen, generals and agents have graced our hole-in-the-wall shop. Rajawongse Clothier has been fortunate to have tailored suits for both Presidents from the Bush family, Senator John Kerry and former Homeland Security czar Tom Ridge. Nancy Reagan even had a dress designed by them to match a curtain backdrop for a television interview she was giving.
In the 90s, the shop also underwent refurbishment and renovations.
The legacy continues…
As dedicated as ever, the father-son duo Mr. Jesse and Mr. Victor Gulati, passionately work at the shop ensuring the finest quality and craftsmanship for each esteemed client. There is no better guarantee of quality than having them take care of your requests. At Rajawongse Clothier, our clients become our lifelong friends.

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

BUNTE

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

Ekstra Bladet

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.

australian testimonial
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.”

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.”

What is a Bespoke, Made-to-Measure and Ready-to-Wear Suit

A bespoke suit is made from scratch, usually by 2-3 tailors with your exact measurements. It comes with your chosen fabrics, pattern and is supposed to be tailor to enhance your features while at the same time hiding flaws if any.

Common Suit Fabrics- Considerations for Buyers

When buying a suit, not only one considers how the suit is made but also which fabric it is made from. In a hot country, a lighter and breathable fabric is more suitable but the opposite holds true for the cooler areas of the world. But which material is good then?
