About
Well established at the most prestigious bespoke tailor and shoe-maker in Hoi An. Yaly was born from the humble roots of a small market stall run by Ms. Quynh, a Hoi An local, with a natural talent for design and a passion to provide high quality workmanship, service and fabrics to international standard. Ms. Quynh’s determination has immortalised the craft of traditional tailoring and Yaly has become a world renowned institution with three beautiful Hoi An tailors in the old town, providing high standard workshops and the best professional training for each of its valued employees. Some might say Yaly are the best tailors in Hoi An but why don't you come down to Hoi An Vietnam and see for yourself?

My husband and I went to Yaly with the intention of getting one or two suits made at most for him. 24 hours later, we left incredibly impressed knowing that 4 dresses for me and three suits, three shirts, and a tie were done, fitted and being shipped to our home the next day.
The experience started with Cindy greeting us and helping us pick out fabrics and reviewing pictures we had for her as a frame of reference. I had pictures of dresses that I wanted replicated and very specific instructions for what I wanted. I do think that the more specific you are, the better. I don't recommend wandering into a custom tailoring shop aimlessly and hoping something magical comes out of it, but if you have a plan and an eye for what you want, they will make it happen.

Cindy took our measurements and we returned the next day for two fittings. We had lunch somewhere nearby and explored the area in-between fittings. I can't say enough how helpful and skilled Cindy is. She had an eye for what was flattering on our bodies and these pieces are without doubt the best fitting clothes we own. We are spoiled and never want to shop for clothes anywhere else!

Thank you Cindy and Yaly Couture!

I made a full suit (dinner jacket plus trousers) and two pairs of working slacks. Yaly's staff was patient and courteous, and showed us different types of material to suit our budget. Despite the speed (suit was ready in less than 48 hours), workmanship was good. I needed two fittings for the jacket - but that's OK to ensure a good fit (though it did mean an extra trip to town). Final delivery was free - they sent it to the hotel in time for my departure to the airport. The only quibble is that Yaly is a bit more pricey than A Dong - the other good tailot in Hoian.

Our guide suggested we visit this shop as she said their quality would be better than the small tailor shops along the streets. My daughter & I both had a dress made & my husband had a pair of boots & a belt made. They had a huge selection of materials to chose from & lots of books to flick through to find the clothes you wanted made. We were measured on the first visit, they made the dresses up to a point same day then we retried them on making sure they were right then they finished them off & had them delivered to our hotel all within 36 hours. They can work off photos on websites or bring your own clothes for them to copy. Both our dresses turned out great & my husbands boots fitted perfectly also. They are very busy with lots of customers so be prepared to wait around a bit. Our salesperson was Marie, she was helpful enough. Our dresses cost approx $120 AU each as did the boots, I was expecting it to be cheaper but this was supposedly better quality. I did also have some basic work dresses made by a small tailor in the street & was very happy with the quality of those dresses ($35AU each) so I guess it depends what your having made & how much you have to spend, overall I was happy with the end product & service

High prices for uneven quality.

Husband got some nice shirts. I bought a matching silk top and trousers. Top was fine. Trousers seemed well made until the final fitting, when fixing an issue with bunching at the hips resulted in the trousers being taken apart multiple times, all in the hour before we had to leave for the airport. Trousers ended up ruined and totally lopsided.

I should have left them behind (which Yaly did agree to) but multiple people in the shop kept insisting that they fit fine, and with my flight about to leave and feeling very flustered, I paid for them. Yaly also provided a small discount.

Tried to get the trousers fixed in Hanoi at a reputable tailor but unfortunately they were too badly ruined to save.

Given the premium we paid for Yaly I expected much better quality - and to end up with something actually wearable. I also didn’t appreciate Yaly constantly blaming my unusual body type - true, which is why I wanted clothes custom made in the first place!

All in all, very disappointing.

This place is visited by too many tourists, and as a result, the tailors do not spend enough time with you, especially when one considers how much they charge. I ordered two outfits and both have problems. The first one, a Vietnamese traditional outfit (tunic and pants), ended up being too tight around the waist. When I came home and looked at it closer to see if I could loosen it up a bit, I was shocked to see how badly finished the tunic was. Extra pieces hanging all over the place. You can't see it when I wear it, but finishing matters when you pay this kind of price (for example, a friend who had a traditional outfit made elsewhere paid half the price, and it is better made.) The second outfit is a simple dress that ended up looking only OK because they had made it so much larger than it should have been that taking it in did not completely solve the problem. I wear it around the house, but that's not what I had in mind (again for this price.). I give three stars because I like the fabrics, otherwise I would have given two.
I would advise anyone wishing to have something made in Hoi An to find another tailor, one with fewer customers who can pay more attention to your needs (and will probably charge a lot less).

Outstanding
I visited this atelier 4 years ago and have continued to order dresses that are delivered to me in london, ever since. The quality of fabrics are exceptional, the service is lovely and they have my measurements ( done with a scan machine- so perfect ). So far I have ordered at least 10 dresses and they always fit beautifully . I get compliments every time I wear one . I just love Yaly!!!! Next on my wish list is a lace evening dress. And I’m confident it will be beautiful. Happy shopping !

Fantastic, good quality, and affordable! There were 3 fittings in total and with every fitting, they get closer to your vision. We compared pricing across a few stores and Yaly's pricing was competitive and one of the more affordable options. Will recommend!! My advice is to go there with a clear idea of what you want.

The tailors at Yaly made a great jumpsuit for me from beautiful fabric that I selected. I gave them a jumpsuit I already had as a model - I highly recommend doing this to make sure the designers understand what you want and how you want the fit. Everyone was very nice and professional. They even gave me a discount because I had to wait for someone to help me! They delivered my finished clothes to my hotel and left time for me to make last alterations. Not cheap, but a fun and unique experience!

We were a group of Americans heading to a wedding in Ho Chi Minh City and at the last minute decided to get traditional Vietnamese clothes for the ceremony (Ao Dai). A colleague from Da Nang recommended Yaly so we went to this branch and a whole team of consultants helped us out, mine was Lele and she helped two other people on our party. Her English was good, she was very patient explaining all of the options (design, cut, fabric, etc.) and was good humored about the whole process. Her measurements were spot on, when I went for my fitting, only minor adjustments needed to be made. The key is that our group visited Yaly in the morning and we needed everything THAT NIGHT (like I said, this was very "last minute"). The staff did not panic, they got the job done on short notice and even delivered to our hotel that night to save us a trip back to their store. Everyone in our group was happy with the results and the service, some took advantage of the opportunity to have some western clothes custom made. And they looked pretty good, I should have done that, too. Anyway, we really looked sharp in Saigon, we got TONS of compliments on our outfits. So big thanks to Lele for making me look sharp.

A very bad experience for me.
The most expensive tailor of Hoi An with an extremely greedy management trying to get as much money as they can out of you. Prices are unreasonably high and the quality of most of their fabrics is far from being good.
I suggest to try other ones !
