Had a man’s suit made – Review of Hoang Yen Tailor, Nha Trang, Vietnam – Tripadvisor

Do not even consider going to this tailor unless you are in Nha Trang for a minimum of 5 days, as it will require multiple fittings – and the more the better, as you do not always get what you want right away.

The cost is definitely not cheap as you would expect in Vietnam (shirts were US$40, dresses US$110-US$125) maybe this is just not the right city for cheaper tailoring (unlike Hoi An and Hanoi)

We were disappointed with their flexibility – wanting my husband and I to come at different fitting times, which already cut down on our activities while in Nha Trang, and it took lots of insisting from us to book the same fitting time. They definitely were not willing to work around our schedule, but us around theirs. Weird as I thought we were the clients…

The quality of the work is great, however you do get your clothes back with lots of chalk lines in them, and on one of my shirts the blue chalk couldn’t come out in dry cleaning, so that is now un-wearable.

The sizing was done by one of the owners (the pushy one, who kept telling my husband to buy more shirts and pants, not that the price would drop or anything) and sizing was done wrong. In my first fitting, I told them that the pants were too tight at my calves. They said they would let it out (good thing they do leave in quite a bit of extra material for cases like this), but they only did on one of the pants, not the other 2. The waist of the pants was too loose and not taken in as requested. I had to argue with her about how I liked some of my clothes, and am unhappy with a few items as she did not meet my requirements. One of the pants I had asked for 2-3 inches longer so I can wear them with heels (5-6cm longer) and they came in shorter than ground level as she didn’t have enough material. Why did I pay US$50 for these?!?

My husband’s clothing luckily fits well, but now that we are home I have had to take half of my clothes to a tailor to fix the sizing, costing me more money, on top of losing one top due to the chalk not coming off the material

Now that we are home we have tried to contact them to get more info on ordering men’s shirts from them for my husband, and no response for 10 days now.

All in all, this place isn’t bad if you have the time and flexibility for multiple fittings while in Nha Trang. However do not expect to get a good deal on pricing or communications from them in the future
