Thought I might as well use this thread as the other thread I posted in before my trip to Saigon no longer exists. Went to Saigon in Feb and had a number of shirts made, and two suits.
The suits were 2 button, single breasted in a navy and grey, super 120 and 150 wools respectively. Working button holes, 2 pairs of trousers per suit in a flat front, slimmer cut. I had two visits to the tailor, first for initial measure and selection of fabric (+ description of the style of suit I wanted). Second visit was about 5 days later, checked out the progress and had a fitting. At this stage, pants were not even started, was assured this was a very quick job so left until last.
The third visit to the tailor was 2 days later, usually it would be the last and final, however, had issues with the fit of the jacket (was a bit large around the waist) so it was agreed this would be altered. Alterations made and tailor's wife delivered both suits to my hotel 2 days later.
I can't remember the exact cost, but it would have been around $AUD400ish including fabric, for both suits with two trousers.
I have a few pics of the suits:
And a pic of the selction of fabrics for the shirts:
Also had a number of shirts made, will post pics when I can.
