Lam is my top tailor for suits, I think the quality is even better than Dung. Not that Dung is bad, they're great as well. Suits from both places fit perfectly and are made with top-quality imported wools and...

Just picked up 4 more shirts from Dung this afternoon, as always they fit my awkward dimensions perfectly, are made of top-quality imported cotton, and have been customized to my specific instructions.

I don't think I or any of the other forum members who live in Vietnam have been disappointed by the outstanding quality and affordability of any of the clothes we've had made here. At least, that's the impression I get from having read the forum...

My father claims they were the best tailors back in the day. There's still a Phan Van Dat street downtown, in District 1 near the river. Not sure if it is the same street as the Phan Van Dat street that was here in the old days, but it probably is. If so, then...
Good Airports and Bad Airports I don't mean to resurrect a thread that has had no activity for over a year, but I find it to be very interesting. I don't think any airport can beat Singapore Changi International. It is a destination in itself, well worth spending time there with a lot of interesting things to do. Even though most nationalities don't have any problem getting into Singapore, and there are excellent transportation links from the airport to the rest of...
In 2002, I flew from Havana to Madrid on Air Europa. Smoking was still allowed at that time on EU carriers. It was fun to see everyone in the smoking section with a Cuban cigar in their mouths. The cigars must have helped to make up for the airline's bad service.
I didn't see any cotton fabric for sale either, except for use as drapes, and a few bales of raw cotton. There are a lot of fabric dealers on Gawhar al-Qaid or al-Muski street, about a block or two west of al-Muizz street, who sell what appears to be low-quality wool for suits. It might be artificial fabric. I didn't spend much time looking. There is also a factory on al-Muizz street that makes fezzes or tarboushes, apparently the last factory of its kind in Egypt. ...
Hi, guys, I'm going to Cairo in a few days, and was wondering if any of you knew if it's a good place to buy cotton fabric that I could take back to my tailor to have some shirts made. I'm also looking for seersucker for a suit, haven't found it so far in Asia, where I live. Egypt is of course famous for its cotton, but I don't know if it's a good place to buy fabric or if they even mill any cotton there. Thanks for any advice.
Hi, guys. Just wondering if any of the forum members in Ho Chi Minh City can recommend a good place for suit cleaning & pressing here. Thanks
