  • Woman’s Business Suit

    Loved my experience at A Dong Silk tailor in Hoi An. I was originally a bit leery about buying a suit as I’ve had bad experiences where they’ve come out looking masculine or clunky, but this suit made me feel pretty fly. Dong helped me decide on a style and made it as simple for […]

  • My Personal Tailor for Life

    This is going to be long and detailed, so as a summary, I am a new lawyer competing with the partners for best dressed at a fraction of the price. I eventually gave all my non A Dong dress clothes to charity because I vastly preferred their products and found I stopped wearing everything else. […]

  • HOW TO CHOOSE A LINING FOR YOUR BESPOKE SUIT

    If you have never purchased a bespoke suit before, you are unlikely to have been given a choice on your suit lining.

The dress is all I’ve hoped for and more. I was unsure about getting a dress, but I thought, I would go to A […]

  • Tuxedo or Suit for a wedding?

    “Should I wear a tuxedo or a suit for my wedding? I seriously don’t even know the difference.” I’m glad you asked. The primary physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the presence of satin. Typically tuxedos have satin facing on the lapels, buttons, pocket trim, and a satin side stripe down the […]

  • Good tailor with excellent consultation

    We have been at dong silk in January. It was a really great idea choosing this store. Nhung did a great job advising me. I ended up buying two 3 pieces suits, 3 shirts and two ties. She took care of all the measurements and helped me choosing the right sizes. Dao also did a […]

  • Dont look anywhere else- This is the place for your custom tailor needs while visting Hoi An!

    My fiance and I did a lot of reach before visiting Hoi An and where to go for custom clothing. We narrowed it down to three places, and quickly realized that the process could be overwhelming. Looking back on what we had made and from who, A Dong Silk Tailors by far exceeded everyone else. […]
