“Our favourite tailor of the trip”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We really recommend this tailor of all the ones we tried in Hoi An. We kept ordering more items because they kept getting it right. My other half ended up getting 2 jackets (single button blazer, great fit, straightaway without the need for multiple fittings some tailors need), 1 tuxedo and shirt, all fit brilliantly. The service was great - and didn't dip just because we were 'already in the bag' - they offered us cool drinks, i got Tiger Balm for my horrific mosquito bites and more importantly they 'got' what it was we were asking for (some tailors insist on telling you what is best). And the prices made it excellent value. Really recommend. (Note to previous negative review: almost all tailoring in Hoi an is done offsite - imagine the rental in Old Town for these shops!)

“Terrible”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Went here due to an article online and good trip advisor reviews. We were in Hoi An for 4 days and i had to go everyday and try on clothes that they made too small and then too big then just terrible. They never even bothered to get the measurements right. In the end I realised they were just buffering me along until I had to leave. So i paid $115 for some items that don't even slightly fit and have to be thrown out. I tried explaining that a hem above my ankle was too short but they didn't care even though the first night they asked if i would wear heels or not. Some adjustments were never made even though they said they would. Also having to put trousers on that don't even fit my thighs behind a curtain with other people in the shop for all to see was humiliating. It also didn't appear the girls did any sewing it's done offsite.

“Great Service and product”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

The two ladies that work at this tailor shop offer exceptional service, quality and price. The ladies offered cool drinks and were attentive to customer requirements and needs. The service was above the general level as they offered reduced credit card rates (1.5%), provided a few extras (silk ties) and further discounts (10%).
The only bartering point was the credit card rate which they lowered when pointed out that it was above the norm at 5%. However this is the owners set rate and not a reflection of the sales ladies.
When buying shirts make sure that the length supports the shirt remaining tucked in.
Will buy more clothes from this shop on our return to Hoi An in the near future.

“Great tailor great service”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

The two ladies working here went out of their way to 'satisfy the client'. We had a suit, two ladies winter jackets, two blouses, a waist coat(?) and a top made. Good price, good qualitity and service. Any alterations were ' no problem' They work hard for their (boss') money!.
