i think the workmanship is OK. Good if you show them a ton of pics and insist on details being matched etc etc - then theyll do quite well. left to their own devices...well.....as another expat once told me about Vietnam "the only place ive ever lived where people will spend three hours looking for ways to cut corners on a 20 minute job" yeah, i import my own cloth for suits - made 2, 1 to go when i get time to do it. Been basically happy with the results. Cost hovers between $50-60 for tailoring on full canvas suits Trousers I dont care so much (its 90+ most days here, so I seldom wear a jacket) - i settle for look good, drape well, feel nice with those. Suits Im more fussy of course and insist on nice cloth, which I buy on eBay from a guy (how6955) in England.
