Had to get a shirt made quickly for a wedding I had to go to the next morning. Stumbled into Aobaba after searching through many shops and they told me they could have the shirt ready within 5 hours. Plus, the price was within my range for what I wanted to pay. The shirt came out perfect and I couldn't... More

We are backpacking and decided to get a suit made up while in Hoi An. We chose Aobaba after our hotel gave us a 10% discount card. From the start we felt very welcomed and were shown all types of material for $85. I got to pick the colourful lining, had silk trim added (for $10 extra) and they happily... More

Based on recommendation of some friends we went to aobaba for some tailor made clothes. I didn't have the intention to get some clothes, but once you step into the store you can't resist the friendliness and nice suits that you see. I started with one suit, and came home with 2 suits and 2 shirts and 400eur less. It... More

Was recommended a few other places in the area but when walking past this place I decided to stop in. So glad I did!! They offer a great service and I'm really pleased with the suit they've made in a short time knowing when I had to leave. They also keep your measurements if in case you want others made... More

Outstanding my only advice would be next time go with no clothes and get... More

Only wanted two pairs of shorts made , took 4 days and one pair was so different to the other I donated them to the hotel manager for hand put to anyone they fitted in the maintenance crew. The pair I gave as a sample are branded and expensive, but would rather have bought one more pair in the store... More

The number of tailors in Hoi An can be overwhelming as they are everywhere and if you ask 50 people you will get 50 recommendations! After a bit of shopping around we chose this one as it felt right, whereas some of the others seemed too fancy, didn't have much choice, too big etc. That probably sounds a bit 'Goldilocks',...
