Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

George W. Bush and Rajawongse Clothiers on Sukhumvit Rd

Jesse and Victor Gulati, father and son, have been tailors to both President Bushes and other family members since the ’90s.  In fact there have been a number of occasions when Jesse or Victor had seen their suits on television.  Worn by the Bushes during meetings with world leaders.  Recently George W. Bush was in Bangkok.  What was one of the things he did?  Order shirts from Jesse and Victor as the time he spent in Bangkok was very short.

What’s my angle?  They have been my tailors since 1995 when I first came to Thailand.  In fact all the suits, dress shirts and slacks I wear to work are from their shop on Sukhumvit near the Landmark Hotel.  Small world indeed!
