Hey everyone. Well I have been on the search for finding a place that sells size 36 jeans in Hanoi. I got nothing so far and the largest size i can find is 34.

Anyone know where I can buy some jeans?

Thanks Ehrin

My better half says she got some at Vinatex on Ba Trieu, but she had to ask for the larger sizes.

Good luck.

Vinatex is a good place to try but I haven't seen many larger sizes there.

You can try Made in Vietnam shops. They sell export clothes which have some minor errors but still in good condition. They're also cheap compare to other shops. Some of my friends are 6 ft 3 in (191 cm) or overweight, they often go there.

However, they never have the settled type of clothes.
You can find what you need there.

I know some M.I.V shops but I've forgotten their addresses. I think there's a shop at #82 - Hang Dieu st and one on Quan Thanh st.

Thanks guys. Virezo i look at made in vietnam shops all the time. I never have any luck in finding size 36. You got a shop in particular?

I will check out the Vinatex and the MIV and see what i can find.

thanks for the help,
Ehrin

Sorry emack, MIV means Made In Vietnam.
Well, I saw some very big jeans in a MIV shop. I can't remember where the shop is (because they're not for me). They usually don't have the same stuff because factories rarely make the same mistake.
You can try Boo or Shark. Sometimes I saw bigger size jeans there. Not sure they're size 36.
Boo1 : #113 - Nam Cao st. - Dong Da dist.
Boo2: #38 - Lê Đại Hành st. - Hai Ba Trung dist.
Boo3: #84 - Hàng Điếu - Hoan Kiem dist.
Shark: #33B - Phu Doan st. - Hoan Kiem dist.

Good luck.

You could also try Nino-Max (or something like that) on Hang Bong which has great clothes and larger sized jeans

N&M have large sizes. But be warned the material totally expands after being washed, so now my pair just completely drip off me, being far too big.

Hi Ehrin-
I've been told that Western sized shoppping for men's clothes can be found at the shop on the corner of Nha Tho and Hang Trong Street (there is actually the entrance to a bank or highlands coffee on that exact corner, but the shop is right next to it- on Hang Trong). Happy Hunting!

I think your best bet is to have them something custom-made, considering that the average Vnese adult male size is about 20.

There is the Big Size shop connected to DK & C Fashion (very near to Dragonfly bar) which is good for picking up big sized jeans, T-shirts and hoodies.

SIZE 30 JEANS

My son is now 176 cm tall (5F8 inches?)and takes a 30 inch size jeans, so he is tall and slim. Would this be in the range of normal Vietnamese sizes, so we could should most places? If so where can be go for fashionable jeans?

Yea, just bought some 40" shorts there - small place, not the greatest range, but they are 40, which is 2.5 times larger than a local, and they look pretty good.

I am also slim and "tall". Would be nice to get new jeans...
I need W29-32 and L32-34.
Any hope getting something in that size range?

AND! The big AND :)
I am a bad shopper, and due to my work schedule, I don't have so much time for doing my bad shopping... :(
Any ideas if I could find my size jeans from shopping mall (Vincom or Garden = the only ones I know)? Heeelp! :)

I know the shop " Made in viet nam" in Yen Phu Str, Tay Ho, Ha Noi. They often have big size jean. Last week I was there and saw some 36 jean ( Western size). They also have a lot of T shirt, Shirt, Jacket, sport clothes for big size Xl, XXL, XXXL ( western size of course) with good price.
Did not remember the address but the shop is in the right if you go from Thang Loi Hotel ( Near Ha Noi club hotel area)
