Finding Stall #20 was a challenge, as the gals trying to tell you to go somewhere else are like a swarm of hungry mosquitos. But once you find her, Miss Forget Me Not is indeed worth the effort. We had four days in Hoi An, so we had enough time to experiment.
I went to the other bigger name places first, and was astonished how much they wanted to charge. Perhaps it's the American accent. ;-) But suffice to say that their starting prices were high enough that I saw no point in negotiating. And fortunately, I followed Plan B and went to Miss Forget Me Not. From now on, she will be Plan A.
I took my favorite Charles Tyrwhitt dress shirt and a Lululemon polo shirt (long discontinued) as a test to see how well she could clone them. She will always encourage you to get more than you initially think you will order, but at her pricing (no need to negotiate!) it seemed worth the gamble. The next day when I tested them out and, wow, I was impressed. Immediately ordered a suit with and extra pair of trousers, another ten shirts, a suit for my son, and two áo dài's for my wife. Ironically, it was the áo dài's that needed further adjustments-- she got the suits perfectly on day one!
Having always thought that I was close enough to off-the-rack sizing that I didn't need to go custom tailored, the Miss Forget Me Not experience showed me how wrong I was. There is nothing like the feeling of a suit that actually fits in all dimensions--it makes getting dressed up more fun.
