A review of A Dong Silk For your eyes only

So as any self respecting Englishman knows a trip to Hoi An should mean a trip to the tailors. With the Spectre of a new job looming large I thought I could use a new suit in order to make a good first impression.

My research told me two things:
1. A Dong Silk is the best place
2. It's best to bring pictures of a suit you like so that the seamstresses can replicate the style.

So I printed off a picture of Daniel Craig and took my girlfriend to the shop. You can imagine my surprise therefore when we were greeted with :

"Wah, Misser James Bond, you must come inside! We make you nice suit"

"Missi money penny ah!"

A Dong Silk know their market.

I was originally only going to get two piece, however with the encouragement from the very helpful staff and an impressed girlfriend I was shaken into buying a waistcoat.

"Never say never again" my girlfriend said - strictly in reference to waistcoats. I obliged.

During the first fitting, Diem (very helpful consultant) noticed the trousers were a bit tight during my test lunges and told me to get them loosened around the thigh. She clearly has a Goldeneye for these things. This is important for me as I need a lot of give in order to get into my Aston Martin.

During the second fitting nothing was required. The suit fitted perfectly already.

Overall:
2 white shirts
2 trousers (lots of give to get into low cars)
1 jacket
1 waistcoat
0 vodka martinis

$350 USD.

Many thanks to Linh and Diem for 5 Star Secret Service. 10/10 would buy again.

This was our first venture into tailoring so we were slightly apprehensive about the process and what to expect at the end. We also checked out Kimmi's next door, but chose ADong due to what we felt was a more personalised service and a better store experience. We got a harder sell in Kimmi's and felt under time pressure to choose designs from iPads in quite a crowded shop - whereas in A Dong it was a much more leisurely and personal experience. As you go back a few times for fittings you will end up spending quite a lot of your time in Hoi An in the store and with the sales assistant you choose - so it pays off to get it right. Our assistant Phuong could not have been better. She was very patient with us and never put us under pressure to make decisions or buy more. She also has brilliant taste and advised us on styles, fabrics, fit etc - and got it right every time. We really enjoyed spending time with her, and feel that she really made our experience at A Dong and in Hoi An - it wouldn't have been the same with someone else, and I don't think our friends had the same experience with other assistants. As for the results - absolutely beautiful, quality tailoring, made completely to our specification. Just ask for Phoung, put yourself in her hands and enjoy!

Thank Sarah B
