Words cannot describe the lovely Ty from Kha Huy Cloth Shop. I had a shorter time in Hoi An than expected, so did not expect to have time to have everything I wanted made. I went to another tailor across the road first to have a trial pair of trousers made for me. They fitted well, and looked good from the outside, but the finishing inside was very poor - there obviously had been a problem with the overlocker which had not been corrected.
Then I wandered into Kha Huy. Ty struck me immediately as a person who knew her trade, and was knowledgeable and helpful. I have done quite a lot of sewing in the past, so do know what to look for and can recognise good workmanship.
To cut a very long story short, I ordered a suit with two pairs of trousers for my son, with measurements I had brought with me. The hard part was that it had to be made within 24 hours (I was thinking that would be impossible). Not only was the suit finished on time, but a lined coat for my other son, plus an absolutely wonderful silk coat (from a picture in a magazine, with the changes I suggested), a reversible silk jacket and a pair of lined trousers and overshirt for myself.
I'd been prepared to make alterations to the suit myself, but it fitted my son just perfectly, and that very fussy dresser is absolutely thrilled with it. Ditto his brother - his coat fitted like a glove. As for me? Mine perfect as well, and the workmanship is superb.
Many, many thanks again. We are planning a return trip next year.
