If we go back to the past, Ho Chi Minh City used to be a perfect place for people to get your clothes tailored: No limit for options when tailor shops were plentiful with top quality and reasonable prices. So how about the moment? We have to face with the fact that the tailoring scene of Ho Chi Minh has dramatically changed in the last 20 years: Tailors have been replaced with high buildings; you can be easily overcharged if get in a random suit shop and the worst is most of the suit shops don't actually do the tailoring. "Don't actually do the tailoring", really? Yes, in fact, these places are just showrooms to display samples of suits, bolts of fabrics and where they can deal with customers. After you have made your own decision, they outsource the sewing to workshops or even worse, they purchase a ready to wear suit at the market and then ask for adjustments. In the end, if you are really looking for the best tailor about to meet all your expectations - something can be called high-quality tailor-made clothes, even they are suits or shirts, There are few tips that may increase your shopping experience not just only in Ho Chi Minh City but also Southeast East Asia.
If you have no idea where to go fist, this is the ultimate option: making quick searches on the Internet. Nowadays, whatever products/services you're looking for can easily be found on the internet. Maybe most of the great tailors don't have a website but it doesn't mean you can't find their businesses listed on Google maps. There could be some missing Tailors but at least, you can make a short summary by answering yourself these following questions:
- Is it(the tailor) really popular in the local market?
- What are local customers talking about their products(suits) & services?
- Do they have foreign customers just like you? And if yes, what are their reviews about that place?

+ Don't forget to test their skill.
Good tailors are always the masters of tailoring, even the tiniest detail. So, test their knowledge won't be a problem here. Try to ask if they can do difficult alterations such as shorten a suit jacket, ease armhole or reduce shoulders. These alterations are at expert level and extremely hard for tailors to take on properly. If a guy can explain how to do it, he must be a good tailor (for sure) that you can put your trust in.
"Alterations Knowledge" is always a good test to know whether they are good tailors or not.
