I recently decided that I should start thinking about shelling out some money and buying a real suit. I currently live in Melbourne and obviously there are places here where I can get one, however, I am thinking it might work out overall cheaper and funner to go up to Vietnam or somewhere else in S.E. Asia and buy one there.

Has anyone done this before? What sort of money does it cost? Are there dodgy shops? Can anyone recommend a specific one?

If anyone has any info in general or can share their experiences that would be great. Cheers

    Hands down, the best place to buy a suit in all of SE Asia is Hoi An, Vietnam. I travelled through Thailand and Laos prior to coming to Vietnam, and was reapeatldy told by other travellers to hold off on getting clothres taileered until you hit Hoi An. I sure am glad that I listened to their advice. I got a custom suit made for 60 USD, and it is stunning. There is one main street in Hoi An that does all the tailing, and the one that was recommended to me was a shop called Lan. I could not have been more impressed by the place, and the clothes all turned out perfect. There are loads of dodgy shops, all selling the same things, but if you go to Lan's, you will be real comfortable right away and have no regrets in how the items turn out. Hoi An is great.

    Yep, Hoi An is the place to go. They'll make up one in 24 hrs in your choice of fabric. Get some nice silk ties made also. over 9 years ago
