Last year when Peter and I visited Hoi An, we opted not to have any clothes or shoes custom made. The streets of Hoi An are lined with tailors and leather shops so on our recent trip, we both decided to do a bit of shopping.
Peter spotted a beautiful blue linen suit in the window of Yaly Couture as we were walking through the old town. It was the day before we were set to fly out back to Hong Kong, so although we were extremely pressed for time. We explained our situation to the staff at the shop and were convinced we should take the risk.
47 Tran Phu Street
Peter paid about 165 USD and after two fittings, we ended up with a beautiful blue linen suit in just over 24 hours. We both love the final result and Peter ended up wearing it for our wedding reception in California so you can see pictures of it here.
Qi Pao Review
I had two qi paos made from the friendly woman at Cloth Shop Sun Flower. I went in for two fittings and while I would say the result was nowhere near a Shanghai Tang original, it was worth it for the extremely affordable price of about 15 USD per dress.

She had a wide selection of fabric and was willing to make any adjustments necessary, but unfortunately I was short on time. I would still go back but would recommend you leave adequate time for alterations.
One of the girls in our group, Hazel, also had a pair of shorts made and these turned out really well without needing a fitting.
Custom Shoe Review
I had two pairs of leather shoes made at the well named Cloth Shop & Shoes Shop.

154 Tran Phu Street
After picking out the shoes I liked in the shop, they traced my feet and my custom shoes were ready the next day. One pair needed to be adjusted, but the alterations were done and ready the following day. I’d highly recommend this shop and I love the shoes I purchased. They’re super comfortable and well made. I only wish I had made multiples of the same pairs since Hong Kong is notorious for destroying shoes.
