    Hi Nayr,

    How did your trip go last winter? I am in Hanoi for a few weeks for work and am interested in having a few slim fit dress shirts and possibly a dinner suit made. Were you satisfied? Which tailor did you end up using? I've seen mixed reviews for both Cao and Duc, so I would love your feedback.

    Thanks!

    I didn't try either in the end due to time constraints. I went ahead with a nameless tailor which churned up the 2 shirts I ordered within 1/2 a working day. However even with a shirt to copy, the measurements were off and specifications were not correct. It was probably about USD30 each so it didn't bother me much. If I had the time I would've probably tried Duc. Cao to my memory was pricey.

    Hey,

    I'm headed down to Hanoi soon, was wondering if you could make any recommendations if you ended up going to either one of the tailors.

    Thanks a lot !
