I feel so stupid. After I visited the grand palace I was walking to another nearby temple when a nice english speaking student asked me where I was going. He suggested that I go to that temple and another nearby buddha statue, and that it was a special one day per year deal with the tuk tuks if they take you to a thai clothing factory during your trip its only 40baht. Its this cheap because the tuk tuks get free gas out of it. So we go to this dusit place and I was dehydrated and had been cooking in the sun for a few ours - not in my usual street smart mode. The salesman was very smooth and I was talked into a nice cashmere overcoat. They sized me up, but in hindsight I dont remember him taking my sleave length. I ended up paying 15500 baht!!!! This is close to 600 canadian, which is still less than I would pay in Canada for a custom cashmere overcoat, but not much. When I got back to the hotel I looked up this place and was horrified by the reviews. They seem to have below par suits if you pick them up, and many have reported that international shipping never comes. Im leaving Bangkok early tomorrow morning and wont be able to pick the coat. I feel so dumb. I just hope they actually send me a coat. If not, 600$ to the Bongkok suit mafia.
