I was also taken there by TukTuk like all the other reviewers said. Same story, approached by random Thai, offered cheap TukTuk ride, then went to a 'unknown temple' where approached by another friendly Thai, who also recommended this suit place. We were then brought to Dusitta Collection.
The staff was friendly but a bit pushy on sales. After negotiating for quite a bit, I settled on buying one 3 piece suit. After I left, I checked the reviews on tripadvisor and I was so shocked at the negative reviews. Everybody said it was a scam and I had already paid for the suit so I felt terrible. I was afraid that I had wasted my money and would get a horrible suit out of it.
But, I decided to give them a chance. I went for my fitting the day after and was surprised by how well the suit fit. During my initial visit, they had taken about 10 different measurements and the suit definitely felt like it was precise to the measure. There was only a small few changes needed and the tailor noted it down. We went back the next day and the corrections were all made and the suit fit like a glove. Fit wise, the suit gets a 10/10. Regarding materials, the seller told me that it's around 45% cashmere and 55% wool. I guess I'll never know if it really is that but at least based on touch, the fabric felt nice and soft. I've bought cheap polyester suits before online and this finitely felt a lot better. So material wise, it's difficult for me to give a score.
Although this whole TukTuk scam incident left a sour taste, the suit itself turned out super nice and true to the specifications that I had given and the fabric color and lining that I wanted. Did I overpay for my suit? I probably did according to Thai price standards but if I compare it to the price I would've paid back home in Canada, then it was quite a decent price.
Anyways I hope that Dusitta collection can stop this whole TukTuk scam thing and just focus on an honest business. Their product in my opinion was good so if they work consistently and honestly with it, I believe it can become a great business.
