Clothes to Tailor in Hoi An

Compare to tailors in Ho Chi Minh or tailors in Hanoi, tailors in Hoi An are as accomplished in their work so you can get various kinds of clothes from formal attires like suits, shirts, and ao dai to casual ones like dresses, pants, and shorts.

It is hard to tell how much the price will be since it depends on the design and the material of your order. Another important factor is the reputation of the store. If you opt for fancy places, the cost must be double or even triple the price in small stalls. However, expect a shirt/shorts to cost from VND 200,000 or more, and a suit starts from VND 1,500,000.

The Tailoring Process in Hoi An

Each tailor may have a different process but here are the basics steps that they must all go through (reference from Yaly Couture):

  • Share your desires for the requested item. You should be precise in what you want;
  • If it is an item you own, bring the original piece or provide as many pictures as you can;
  • If it is a replicate of something you have seen, bring some copies/pictures;
  • If it is your design, bring sketches and pictures of your inspiration;
  • In case you don’t know what you want, walk around and see models on display or ask the staff for recommendations.
  • Pick your favorite fabric, color, and pattern. You should listen to the staff’s advice since they know what kinds of fabric work best for each clothing type;
  • The staff takes your body measurements and pass these to the tailors;
  • Depending on the complexity of the item, you will have one or two additional fittings within 24 – 48 hours;
  • ​Once the final fittings are complete, you can pay and bring home your purchase.
