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.
2 white shirts
2 trousers (lots of give to get into low cars)
0 vodka martinis
Many thanks to Linh and Diem for 5 Star Secret Service. 10/10 would buy again.
