Hi Selvaggio. I'm going to be in Ha Noi for 2 months and keen to get a suit - 3 years on would you still recommend your one from Duc? You mention it's a bit boxy and old-fashioned - do you think it would be possible to change their minds on things like waist suppression or do you think the 'house style' will win out in the end? I'm going to be in HCMC alos, so keen to here if Dung is still going strong.

Hey,


i went to Dung two weeks ago and ordered four shirts and a suit. Concerning the shirts i gave him a shirt to copy from with some slight changes. I think thats the safest way and they turned out very good.

For the suit i chose a  vitale barberis canonico for testing. He calculates on a basis of 3,3m. VBC is priced at 2,5m dong a m, Dormeuil 3,7m, Scabal, Marzoni, are also on stock as well as cheaper fabrics priced between 700k and 1m. The price for the workmanship went slightly up to about ca. 80-90€.

 

The shirts were ready after two weeks, as was a first version of the suit for a fitting. The final suit will take another two weeks. I was very satisfied with the first version of my suit.

 

Sending it to Europe now costs USD 80 (with DHL) which is a lot but they ll "take care" of everything...

I also visited the shoemaker mentioned in this blog Tran Quoc Lan. The shop was closed twice when i went passed and by chance i have seen it open one day. I picked up two pairs of suedes which seem to be of a decent quality.

 

Furthermore, I went to Lam Tailors. Their english skills are slightly better compared to Dung. it seems that their services are widely used also by embassy staff (like at Dung) and mostly by foreigners. Tried Lam for a two piece woman suit (available from 300USD, VBC and others at 400USD) and was quite satisfied. Their customers include also Laura and George W. Bush ( a letter from the white house proudly features in her shop). I asked also about men's suits which are starting at USD500. They are half canvassed.

 

Lam -like Dung- keeps measurements if you wish to reorder (you just need to chose your fabric there or send quite detailled information)) Concerning Lam, they send for approx. 30USD a kg.

 

best wishes,
Baudrillard

It would help many if you could post a full range of photographs of the suit. - Without and without the jacket, back and front and the inside of the jacket.

Hello,

Thanks for all the great information.

Does anyone have recent experiences with Dung or other Saigon tailors that they wouldn't mind sharing?

In particular, what is his tailoring rate, and will be work with fabric purchased from a different vendor?

Thanks!

Hi Baudrillard

 

Thanks for your review. I'm interested in getting a suit there.

 

Can you tell me what the overall price of your suit is? (fabrics and labor included)

 

Thanks.

Hello,

 

I am visiting Vietnam during Christmas and new year for a 3 week holiday.

We will be in HCMC the first 3 days and then travel around and return the last two days in HCMC before returning home.

I am planning to get a suit and a pea coat from a tailor. Based on some internet research, I think I will be visiting one of the following tailors in HCMC:

 

- Dung @ Le Thanh Ton

- Cao Minh

- H&D Tailors

 

I have some questions that hopefully you could help me out with:

 

- What would be the best choice, considering my schedule? I read that Dung is the best, however his delivery time is also longer.

Could H&D tailors be a good suggestion? They have shorter turn-around times, but I cannot find much info/reviews about them on this forum.

 

- Does anybody also has a price indication for those tailors?

 

- Should I contact these tailors beforehand, or is it better to just drop in once arrived in HCMC?

 

 

Looking forward to any response and discussions and thanks in advance.

1. I think Dung_Le Thanh Ton is Ok with your timeline. I haven't experienced with H&D tailor so no comment. IMHO, Caominh is not as good as Dung in value.

2. Labor price for Dung is about 300 usd per 2-piece suit. For the cloth price, it depends on what kind of cloth you want. 

3. You should contact them before hand for more information and appointment. But only select the suit when you visit them directly.
