“Good tailor, would go back”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I ordered a shirt and it turned out very nice and for a reasonable price in a timely manner. They have, however only simpler materials. It seems they employ disadvantaged people and in this way your money goes to where it is more needed. Would definitely recommend!

“Quality and workmanship worth the trip”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

I have just made my 3rd shopping trip to Zed's. Quality and workmanship is unequaled when compared to anything I have purchased previously in Hanoi. Yes, you might pay a bit more by Hanoi standards, but you save in the end and a real bargain if you compare to western prices.

“Great Shirts”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Zed's Threads is a great place to buy excellent quality shirts. I have 5 now (both business and casual) and cannot fault them at all. The fit is superb and the fabric is top quality.

Customisation is available but I must admit, most of my purchases have been off the rack given they cater more to a western frame.

I highly recommend Zed's to anyone.

“I made my husband very happy”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Recently, It was my husband's birthday and I knew he wanted a soft linen shirt. We looked around all the shops in Hanoi and we couldn't find what we wanted then a friend introduced me to Zed. I took my husband's measurements and they selected a size from their range. The shirt fits perfectly and my husband was very happy.

“made to measure shirts”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

If you are running short on time on a trip to Hanoi or indeed would like some made to measure shirts at a good price, then Zeds Threads is the place to go as they can take measurements either on the spot and mail the items to you, or if you prefer, you can always send a sample of a shirt by mail to them together with modifications or alterations you need, and they can accurately copy the original, and again mail the completed garments overseas to you.

I have recently taken delivery at home in Canada of some modified short sleeve safari shirts made to my design and they look great. In fact I am forwarding another order so that they are available for my next visit to Hanoi, as once measured, they keep the records of the customer for that reason.

For around $30 each these are far better than any made to measure shirts I could get in N America
