Phuket counts hundreds of tailors shops all across the island. There you can purchase custom suits and dresses, but in fact the actual work is done in one of the few small factories of Phuket.
Best tailors will not make the suit or dress overnight and you will generally have different fittings over a few days, so it is a good idea to order your clothes the first days of your stay or even better just after your arrival. If you do it at the last minute, some tailors might be able to do a custom suit or dress for you, but be aware that the quality will definitely not be the same.
Most tailors are used to see their prices bargained and they can make a first quote that you will find pretty high. Don’t hesitate to bargain! The best period to buy suits and dress is during low season because tailors have less work and would rather diminish their margins than taking the risk to lose a customer.
