Terrible tailor
Jan 2020
Whilst on holiday, I went in and ordered 2 suits, 1 grey and one blue. As I had hand luggage only, they agreed to post them.
When I recieved them, the blue suit had the trousers in a totally different material to the jacket and waistcoat. After many emails, they agreed to remake them and send the new trousers. I finally recieved them about a month ago but they are about 3 inches shorter than the grey pair from which they were supposed to take the measurements. They now do not reply to my emails.
Disgraceful service.
Avoid at all costs.

Excellent quality and great service in Saigon

The best Taylor in Ho Chi Minh. They have good material, the service is impeccable and fast delivery. We live in Saigon and we have made many clothes in Tam Silk Taylors. We highly recommend!

Two suits with perfect fit and for a good price
Jan 2019 • Business
Ordered two suits. Did the first fitting in the same evening. I did the second fitting when I came back from the middle of Vietnam to fly home. Only the wests needed a slight adjustment - the rest was on point. The wests got fixed to the next day and I picked them up before the flight.

Very friendly service aswell.

But I would only ever do tailored if I had time for two fittings. Some people complain about a bad fit, because they only had time for one fitting. That is not the tailors fault.

Absolutely the best bespoke custom shopping experience I have ever encountered.
Dec 2018 • Couples
I came to the area to stay for pleasure on a long vacation trip and came by this shop to get a custom jacket for a photo shoot with my girlfriend at a resort in Phu Quoc.

Their process and shopping experience is amazing, they built me a skeleton that I could try before finalizing the measurements to build the actual suit jacket (although the preliminary measurements were pretty much exact after the first measuring). A few days later I came back to pick up my jacket and was absolutely blown away by the quality of the craftsmanship. The price was also so affordable that I vow to not buy much else in the states when it comes to tailored clothing.

I was so impressed with how friendly, preofessional, trustworthy, and responsive they are that I put in a huge bulk order of 2 more jackets, 2 full suits, 5 shorts, and 8 shirts (should be enough to last be for another year).

I would highly recommend this shop above all else. I was initially referred here by a local who gets all his business attire here and was so pleased with my initial visit that I did not even look elsewhere to shop for prices. With the quality and service they provide here, I am not surprised at how far out booked they are. If you are looking for instant turn around, this is not the place as they love their craft and spend a lot of time to perfect their work.

Okay but not great.

I decided to go here because a friend did. I read a few reviews. I am rating them average. I ordered two custom suits and two custom shirts. The suits are small in the torso and I would say the shirts are average based on stitching and the overall material quality. I told them that I needed more room because of my needs and body style. Given the price, not a big super disappointment (I was even warned that Vietnamese tailors will scrimp), but I will be more discerning next time! Very nice family and maybe others will have better luck? What can one expect for 48 hour service and a 2 hour correction.

Fabulous!!!
Aug 2017 • Solo
I had a quick trip to Ho Chi Minh city for work. I brought material with me and my favourite jacket and turned up at Tam Silk at 8am on a Thursday morning, with enough material for three jackets. They did the impossible and produced three, to the same design as the one I brought with me, all impeccably tailored. And I picked them up at five thirty the following day before flying back home!!!

Great Tailor, Lovely People

I live here in Saigon and have had a suit and a number of shirts made by the team here. Great quality and just what I wanted. I originally chose it because I liked the logo (designed by the daughter) but am pleased I did. Lots of choice out there but these guys are fun to be with, very accommodating and the quality is spot on. The price is extremely reasonable too. I won't bother trying anywhere else.

Great tailor
Apr 2017 • Friends
Tam Silk was recommended to my friend and I by the concierge at our hotel (Liberty Central), which is across the street from the tailor. My friend wanted to have work clothes made as she finds it difficult to find clothes that fit her well in the US. We only had a few days in Ho Chi Minh City so we needed our clothes in less than 48 hrs.

My friend came prepared with pictures of what she's as looking for including button down shirts, fitted suit jackets, pants, and dresses. She was looking for custom pieces similar to the style worn by Olivia Pope on the TV show "Scandal." I wasn't originally planning to have clothes made, but the prices were so reasonable I decided to give it a try and have 2 button down shirts, a pair of slacks, and a dress made. My cotton button down shirts (long and short sleeves) were about $40 USD, satin pants $50 USD and my dress was about $100. (Prices are dependent on the fabric, cut / style of garment).

The shop is small, but has a good selection of fabrics. The staff is friendly and helpful. We spent a good 2 hours in the shop, selecting fabrics, taking measurements, discussing details of the clothes, etc...

The lady working told us she could have our items ready for fitting the next evening after 8pm, which was perfect given we were going to be on an all-day tour and weren't scheduled to be back at our hotel in the late evening.

When we arrived at the shop the next evening, nearly all of our clothes were ready for fitting, with one of my friend's items on it's way. Everything we had made fit wonderfully. It was so nice to put on clothes that fit perfectly. My friend had a few more alterations done on some of her items, including her custom jacket, which had some unique seaming / pleats to it. They were unable to finish that jacket in the 36 hr period, but said they could finish it and send it to her in California.

We were both very pleased with their work and would definitely go back. They have our measurements on file and said they could make additional items for us and ship them to our homes in the US.
