The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ancient Town of Hoi An is filled with tailors, a tradition resulting from its past as a trading port on the silk route. Tailor shops here are so plentiful that it can get overwhelming trying to choose one that fits your taste. There are a rare few among the 400+ shops that repeatedly come out on top, and here they are.

A Dong Silk

A Dong Silk is a professional bespoke tailoring company, strongly affirmed by top tourism websites such as Lonely Planet and TripAdvisor. The initial appearance of their flagship store, located on 62 Tran Hung Dao Street, is a million miles away from your average, often shabby-looking Hoi An tailor shop that seems as if it needs to refit itself. There are two floors here full of fabulous fabric, imported and local, for you to choose from. Orders from their three locations are sent to a separate workshop.

The A Dong Silk stores are among those rare tailor shops in Hoi An that offer a high-end experience, strongly committed to creating the best designs and products for their customers. The team here is well-trained in the craft and know exactly the right questions to ask to make the perfect fit for you. Despite being a luxurious shop, you are still able to get a custom dress shirt made for as little as 20 USD, which is about the same as you’d pay for an off-the-rack shirt in a boutique shop. Prices for suits begin at 120 USD, which for the quality of materials and skill put into creating them, is a great bargain.

Another cool thing about A Dong Silk is that they have developed an online shopping website to serve their international clientele who cannot make the trip to Vietnam, where they can select and place orders.

Kimmy Tailor

Kimmy Tailor has been around the longest out of the tailor shops mentioned in this list. They have been in the world of custom tailoring since the ‘70s, passing down their unique skills and bespoke secrets from generation to generation. Now owned by a Vietnamese-Canadian couple, their international experience, combined with the colorful Vietnamese heritage is what sets them apart from others. They pride themselves on understanding Western styles and sensibilities, and keeping up with ever-changing worldly fashion trends. The tailors here are trained well in the craft and can produce anything from pieces of luxury couture fashion to simple, casual beachwear.
