Been looking at my wardrobe, such as it is. Since Vietnam makes shorts, cargo pants, T and polo shirts and I need some new ones - can I easily buy them cheaper in Vietnam than in the states. What cities have the preferred markets. Do they have size and color selections. I'm assuming all prices are negotiable. Any cautionary info. Thanks

It certainly helps if you have the small size Asian body, otherwise you're very limited where you can buy. In Hoi An especially, you can have anything custom made in a matter of hours. No, all prices are not negotiable!
Just because Nike's are made in VN, don't expect to be able to find the very same products very easily that are sold in S. California.
You will see brand name stores in the large cities - I passed a Puma store in Hanoi a few months ago, but did not go in.

Generally speaking clothing is cheaper here than in the States or Europe, but the quality back in those places is better. That's not hard and fast, but a pretty good rule of thumb.

It is funny. You can buy that same quality clothing here too, but the price is high. You get what you pay for you. I bought a nice pair of pants here, very stylish and comfortable, good material - I bargained down to 1,500 baht.
