Testimonials

" . . . Speed, attractive pricing and high quality finish all combine to make it always a pleasure when we are able to work with Darryl and his team at Siam Costumes. On our last collaboration, he really went out of his way to ensure that we had fully accurate military uniforms and they really helped turn a potential headache design requirement into a pain free experience . . ."

" . . . Having used Siam Costumes on several occasions I can plainly state that the overall price of the work was app. half that of the UK. The quality of the work was well up to what was expected. Siam have craftsmen cutters and tailors available in Bangkok, who understand period cutting and tailoring and produce excellent work. Using carefully constructed check sheets, Siam take you through the myriad of combinations available on style, features, shape, finish etc. for each garement, thus leaving (hopefully) no room for error / disappointment. The vast selection of fabrics available are very clearly shown, again on well thought out swatch sheets. Delivery of the finished goods was always made before or on time . . . "

" . . . That inevitable question from Producers "Can't we manufacture in Asia" was always a white-knuckle moment. Siam Costumes were highly recommended to me by supervisors all over the world who really know they're game. I have to say my experiences with Siam were without a hiccup on some very difficult productions. Not only that but the selection of fabrics and notions were really impressive. Spoilt with choice.

That never happens anywhere else. I look forward to my next production with Siam and now it will be my suggestion "Can't we manufacture in Asia?" . . . "

" . . . I have worked with Darryl on three separate occasions now, on period productions that span over 100 years. Every time I have found his attention to detail, speed of delivery and the ability to produce at a very competitive price, has been highly beneficial to the production, and I have no qualms about recommending Siam Costumes to others in our industry . . ."

" . . . Siam Costumes provided military and livery costumes for a recent period film I designed set mostly in San Jose 1900 . From fabric shopping and sourcing, throughout the design and construction period, Daryl and his team were extremely helpful and knowledgable and easy to collaborate with. The end result is wonderful and I look forward to our next venture together . . ."

" . . . Siam Costumes has supplied the Delfont Macintosh group of theatres with all our front of house uniforms needs for 10 years now.

During that time I have been very satisfied with the service they have given our group , as with any supplier over such a long period of time there has been the odd problem, but when they have occurred these have always been resolved promptly and to my complete satisfaction.

Apart from the attention to detail and quality from time to time when we have requested something new for our range of uniforms their designs we have been more than happy to incorporate them into our range . . . "

" . . . Siam Costumes made suits for the Principal men on "Upstairs Downstairs" 2012 and were, quite simply, brilliant. Their range of fabrics, speed of production, quality of manufacture and customer service were second to none and I will certainly be using them again and I have no hesitation in recommending them. Thank you Darryl and Siam Costumes! . . . "

" . . . Darryl and the team at Siam costumes have been a pleasure to work with. They have been able to turn around complicated designs in a very short space of time, to great quality, the standard of stitching and embroidery as been fantastic.

" . . . Siam Costumes were a much-valued supplier and manufacturer of menswear for both Underbelly Razor (period TV series set 1927 to 1936) and Underbelly Squizzy (period TV series 1915 to 1927).

They were able to handle very fast turnaround challenges to deliver great shirts, ties, suits and shoes to us in Australia. Darryl Kent Morris was always prompt in reply and very detailed with communication.

- Thank you Siam Costumes . . ."

" . . . I recently Supervised the costumes for two seasons of “Criminal Minds:Beyond Borders” for CBS, where every episode took place in a different country. Darryl and his family at “Siam Costumes” proved to be an invaluable resource, as many Asian police and military uniforms that are not readily available in U.S. costume houses. Not only were they able to manufacture several different sets for me, but they also supplied all the necessary emblems and medals AND they shipped them to me in record time. I am so grateful for their up-to-the-minute contact and follow-through. They are a pleasure to do business with and I can’t recommend them more highly. . . . "

Kiki Garwood

Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders

" . . . As the Costume Designer on 'Power Games' which was a mini-series set from 1960 to 1974, it became obvious that I was going to need a lot of 1960's men's suits made for the show. There just weren't enough around to rent. Darryl's business 'Siam Costumes' was the first choice. I had been recommended his services by a couple of people that I respect. Film making always has such tight time frames, but we managed to fly to Bangkok, meet with Darryl, talk through what I wanted, choose fabrics, return to Sydney, start sending through measurements, and everything got done in time.

Darryl was helpful, co-operative, friendly, and above all, professional. He made 60's suits, shirts, trousers, waistcoats, waiters jackets, and blazers. The quality of the suits, and fabric, and cut was superb. His knowledge is vast. He supplied a fabric swatch folder, well in advance, which made the process quite easy.

I would highly recommend his services . . ."

" . . . The team at Siam has been invaluable with our fabric and costume needs. They understand the durability and color matching requirements and are willing and able to work within tight deadlines. The jumpsuits that were designed for us have become a very successful standard look in the park. Although they are based in another country the communication has been excellent on our time zone as well as understanding our somewhat complex procurement process . . . "
