I'll be traveling in Asia next month before starting work full-time in August and am looking to buy some high quality, well-made clothing for my wardrobe. While I intend to buy most of my shirts and a suits at home (in the US), I also want to explore buying some cheap custom options while abroad.

Does anyone have experience with specific tailors in Bangkok or Hanoi? Is one city preferable over the other? What should I be looking out for (I've never purchased a custom suit before)? Is this advisable at all? Or should I just sack up and pay for the more expensive options in NYC?
