Hoi An is known for its many fashion boutiques and incredible suit tailoring. You do not want to leave before getting a couple of pieces designed for yourself. But if you don’t have the time or just prefer to buy your clothes straight off the rack then there are plenty of great clothing and shops to keep you busy.
Most of the tailors in Hoi An have clothes on display that you can buy right then and there. They are up-to-date fashions that have been copied from the latest style magazines. If you see something on a mannequin and it does not quite fit then you can get it altered. If you are looking for something unique – something to wow your friends when you get home – there are a handful of great fashion shops that stock clothing with Western body sizes in mind. Most of these boutique stores stock garments for every season as well as accessories and jewellery to match. Once again if the clothing does not fit then these can be altered to fit you perfectly.

Hot Chili is an Australian-run company that creates original designs for garments and accessories.
