I have seen Abercrombie & Fitch in the larger Made in Vietnam stores

In the last year, I've only seen 1 A&F shirt at 1 Made in Vietnam shop.

It's NOT easy to find any more. You have much better luck getting American Eagle and Aeropostale. (That's because Aeropostale and American Eagle still make stuff here; the last time I was at an A&F store in North America, none of the clothing I looked at was made in Vietnam).

The only place in Vietnam I've ever seen A&F clothing on a regular basis is as Saigon Square market in Saigon, but I haven't been in a year so that might have changed too.

There's a shop, think it's called M2, at 55C Ly Thuong Kiet, the street below and parallel to Hai Ba Trung. It's just on the opposite side of the road from the Melia hotel and they stock lots of A & F clothing. It's pretty cheap too, but authentic, because the clothes are made here.

you can find quite a few there in Made in Vietnam shops, or Go US shops. search for them on google

I'm pretty sure that M2 store on Ly Thuong Kiet store has closed down. They did have a lot of A&F there.

Thanks everyone for their answers.

@ Aima. You may be right about M2 closing down, I don't know, but I was shopping in there only about 6 weeks ago. Bought some A&F shorts & shirts. Things chop & change in this city though so maybe it has gone now....Cities change quickly, and in Hanoi sometimes the pace of change seems more rapid than in others. Might still be worth checking out though, if you're in the area.

I went by M2 today. It's definitely open for business and they had lots of shirts that said Abercrombie and Fitch on them (no pants, dresses or anything else A&F).

However much of what I saw was suspicious. The polo shirts MIGHT have been real, but I didn't see any other authentic items.

I've noticed that authentic A&F tags seem to be readily available in Vietnam, so fakers can make a fake shirt and then stitch the real tag onto them.

At M2 I noticed a Timberland polo with a Springfield tag stitched onto it. It is possible that the same factory was making both, and the wrong tag got stitched on, which is why it's being sold for cheap in Vietnam, but that seems far-fetched to me.
