I will be traveling through Vietnam, and am looking to get some tailored shirts. Unfortunately, the only place I'll have enough days in one place is Hanoi, so I'd like to do that there (I've read there are many wonderful tailors throughout the rest of Vietnam).

Where can one get tailored clothing made in a few days in Hanoi?

A blog on the topic of tailors in various cities in Vietnam, says that for Hanoi:

As a recommendation to make a suit to measure in Hanoi, the best tailor and the best store is Cao Minh. Cao Minh also tailoring shop in Hanoi, also owns two shops in Ho Chi Minh City. Cao Minh Hanoi is located at 250 Hang Bong Street (a few blocks south of the lake of Hanoi). Cao Minh also has online shop, but do not buy a tailor-made suit online unless they have made us one previously and we have the exact measurements.

A lengthy review on the topic on TripAdvisor suggests:

Bambou Silk

8 Nha Chung

It's in the Old Quarter, near the cathedral.

Another shop he got a good suit from (also in the Old Quarter) was:

Duc Minh

24 Hang Da

(I've trimmed snippets out of the lengthy review, for more detail click the link and have a read - they provide good descriptions of both)

I only checked out Cao Minh, to anyone wondering their prices were about $100 US for a shirt. –  Felix May 24 at 18:15

To add to Mark's recommendations, I had two shirts made at Binh Minh tailor (warning: flash-heavy website with music!). The shirts came out very nice, and the cost was about $50 US per shirt (depending on the fabric).
