I think the experience of buying shirts, pants, jackets, or suits is more professional and smoother in Bangkok than in Hanoi. Definetly cheaper than Malaysia! You do two fittings and then try on before you depart. Sometimes you can have the first fitting the next day. You should do some research before you arrive and bring clippings. Do things like consider collar styles, suit fashions and try on some suits with a friend to see how you look.

Best to see samples, choose the cloth and styling - and get measured in the first couple days upon arrival. You can look at the website You can choose from these recommended tailors - and they're almost right next to each other. And within walking distance of the Ambassador Hotel or the Grand Business Inn. They can keep it until you depart and deliver to your hotel.

BY BTS SKYTRAIN: Take the Sukhumvit Line to Nana Station. Exit the station down Stairway 2 and walk straight along Sukhumvit Road toward the Landmark Hotel. Rajawongse Clothier is on the left just past the hotel.
