You may not know it, but getting a custom suit or dress is a recommendable activity in Vietnam! Tailoring in Vietnam is extremely affordable and the quality lives up to international standards. Tailors are easy to find in most of the central parts of Hanoi, but those of quality are hard to find. Scroll down to see some of our recommendations, also with a guide to have your clothes tailored in Hanoi.

What to Know about Tailoring in Hanoi?

Know What You Want

You should have a clear picture of what you want (how high the lapels are, what style of pockets, etc...) so the tailor can understand easily. Many expats and travelers struggle to be clear about what they want, which makes the outcome fall short. On a bright note, tailors in Hanoi are very friendly and experienced in tailoring for foreigners, so don’t worry too much as they will help you wholeheartedly.

Getting Fabrics at Cho Hom

From knowing your preferences, the next step is to choose materials that suit you. Tailors in Hanoi have some in stock for sure, but they may not come in many patterns and colors.

Cho Hom Market is located at the corner of Pho Hue Street and Nguyen Cong Tru Street. The giant fabric market is on the second floor with lots of individual stalls and vendors. One meter of silk costs around US$ 5. A meter of jersey cotton costs around US$ 7.

Tailoring in Hanoi is a Bargain

In total, a simple cotton dress will come at about only US$ 16 from a tailor outside the Old Quarter. But it will take more time to make. This cost includes the fee of the tailor and the price of the fabrics you choose from Cho Hom Market.

Once you are ready, let’s get to choosing options to have your clothes made! Tailors in the Old Quarter, many of which are located on Hang Gai Street, can make your clothes within two or three days. For that reason, they will also be more expensive than a tailor you find outside of the area, who may take up to 10 days to make your piece. If you don't have much time, it is worth paying a little more for the faster service.
