Parrish Jones is unlike any other tailor shop in Thailand. It combines cutting-edge technology with an unrivaled shopping experience.
This spacious tailor shop near BTS Phrom Phong station offers everything from casual to formal clothing, a wide range of fashion accessories, fully stocked complimentary bar, a barber, and even dry-cleaning. Parrish Jones clearly opts for something quite unique.
While tailoring may be one of the oldest of old-school professions, measurement tapes will soon be obsolete. Technology such as the 3D Body Scanner can record thousands of measurements accurately, also details that the human eye can miss. “With our scanning technology, we hope to modernize the process of making Tailor Made Clothes. We still want to provide people with traditional attentive service, but also realize that Bangkok has a transient population, especially for expats. Soon, when our online shop is up and running, you’ll be able to log-in, pull up your avatar — your body image — from wherever you are. You will be able to scroll through our fabrics, styles, and design and virtually try on your own suit, shirt or pair of slacks. Once you’re scanned, and are in our system, you will always be in our system. You can order from anywhere, and we’ll ship it to your doorstep,” says Andrea Parrish. She founded the shop in August 2018 together with another industry veteran, Jouni Heinonen.
Parrish Jones is the first to use 3D technology for bespoke clothing in Thailand. It is also one of the first to extract data to create better fitting garments. “Technology gives us an advantage as we can see many details other tailors can’t. Our Scanner takes a thousand measurements in a few seconds, and allows us to see a bow in the back, sloped shoulder, or see if one leg is longer than the other. This allows us to make better fitting garments,” Andrea explains.
Unrivaled Shopping Experience
At Parrish Jones, the Concept is totally new in Bangkok. From the layout of the store, the offerings, to the service, customers are certain to have an unforgettable shopping experience. There’s no need for any hasty decisions when visiting the shop. Having a relaxing drink while sitting on an opulent leather sofa is part of Parrish Jones’s appeal, where the customer is encouraged to take their time.
Getting to know his customer is where Parrish Jones clearly excels. That’s why it has plenty of capable staff, asking just the right kind of questions. “We ask the client where they live, and where they are going to wear their clothes. Are they traveling a lot? If so, they don’t want to buy an expensive wool suit because it will wrinkle,” Jouni Heinonen explains.
Parrish Jones offers Barber services, Bespoke clothing, and a full line of Accessories in one location. Literally a one-stop-shop for men where you can be outfitted head to toe.
