Our first night in Hoi an we got off our hotel shuttle bus on the Main Street. Looked in one tailor and thought we will just shop around a bit before committing to designs and getting measured up. Walk out of shop 1 and a lady in the streets sees us and asks us to go down to her shop. About 1 minute walk and we were at Ha Na tailor.
We spent at least 10 minutes browsing catalogs and book and marking designs we liked before talking to 2 ladies about our choices. They were very helpful in informing us what is suited to our body types and fashionable for people our age. About 30 minutes later we were getting sized up. I ended up getting a 2 piece pant suit, dress, 2 business like tops and another pair of suit pants. My partner got a 3 piece suit, 3 business shirts and some chinos. We organised this about 7pm night 1 and were back at 7pm night 2 for our first fitting.
All the clothes looked great but we needed some alterations on most things. Instead of this being an issue, we had 3 ladies willing and eager to ensure all clothes fitted perfectly. Any suggestions we had they were also very happy to oblige.
Day 3 in Hoi An, we went to the shop at about 4pm with all clothes fitting perfectly. I just needed 1 adjustment to my pants.
Day 4 and we have picked our clothes up at 10.00 with everything looking great. We are both very happy with the quality and fitting of our clothes. As much as we are not looking forward to returning to work, we are very excited to wear our new suits.
All staff at this store are lovely, we even got to meet 2 of the tailors themselves who were also very lovely and happy to assist in alterations. We would highly recommend this store with not a bad word to say. We would also like to thank them for keeping the fans on high as we tried on our suits! See you again next time we are in Hoi An Ha Na tailors!
