Hi. I'll be in Southern Vietnam (HCMC, Can Tho, Mekong Delta) in a few months.
I'm wondering if anyone here can recommend a tailor who can make ao dai for a reasonable price (decent quality, but not too expensive). Would it be real silk? How much for one of those pretty plain white ones ? What about colored ones?
The thing is, I'm a man. But I do want to get a regular women's ao dai. Would this cause any issues?
Also, can one get a yem made (traditional Vietnamese women's undergarment)? How much would that cost?
Also, any other suggestions for traditional Vietnamese women's clothing I could get made? (not something like empress's clothing, just pretty clothes, preferably silk). What about modern, Vietnamese style clothing(not Western style; something sophisticated and Vietnamese inspired, preferably silk).
This wouldn't cause a stir since I'm a guy, right?
