I vote for HOIAN
Hanoi much better. The vast majority of Hoi An tailors are rush-job specialists who know they won't see you again so aren't averse to cutting corners. Plenty of Hoi An tailoring horror stories on this forum.
Tailors in Hanoi/HCMC don't generally cater to tourists but have a regular clientele, longer turnaround times and thus better quality. I don't know any tailors in Hanoi personally but I'm sure some of the expat Hanoi experts can help.
the tailors in Hanoi are better. the quality is better and all cothes have fashionable look, catch up the hot trend of international fashion trend. I think the cost is pricey to Vietnamese but okay for foreigners budget.
The tailors I go to in Hanoi are definitely of a higher quality. As Timmyruss said, they rely on repeat business. But they generally don't do overnight turn arounds so you'd need more time.
Can anyone give the names / addresses of good tailors in hanoi please??
THANK you guys so much! You have all been so helpful! I am definitely going to get it done in Hanoi now!
Vietnam is chalk full of talented tailors in all cities. IF you have the time, You can get quality custom clothing made in any city..... Hanoi, Hue, Nha Trang, Saigon...........even in small out of the way places..... Hoi An specializes in quick turn around if time is a factor. I have found that if you want a fast quality suit, Bangkok is where it is at.
