Reinventing old Bangkok through art, craft and design

BANGKOK -- In most ways, Sin Do Tailor is a classic Bangkok clothier. Squeezed into a narrow shophouse, it exudes an air of comfortable fustiness befitting its status as one of the oldest couturiers on the city's long-established Charoenkrung Road.

Faded portraits of the late Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej and the shop's founding family adorn the walls. In the sitting area a clunky wooden table is scattered with vintage-looking books and well-thumbed gentlemen's fashion magazines.
