Or shirts, or a dress, or pretty much anything else you can think of. Hoi An is chock full of tailors, some are better than others, and some are straight up terrible, so do your research, speak to a few tailors, and make sure you pick somewhere where you feel confident they can get the job done. I can personally recommend Lana for getting a suit made – I did go back seven times for alterations, but it wasn’t because they were bad, it’s because I’m incredibly fussy.
When you a venture into a tailor’s shop in Hoi An, make sure that you already have a clear idea of what you want – that way both you and the tailor will know what you are working towards and you’ll be much happier with the result. I’ve never had a suit made before (in fact, I’ve never even worn a suit before) but I’ve had lots of clothes altered because I’m so slim and nothing sold in shops fits me, so I was able to speak confidently about what I wanted and expected from a suit. And the result was bloody marvellous. I paid $150 for a beautiful suit with a silk lining – but with cheap fabrics and a different lining, you can get a suit for $100.
