Q: Cheap tailor made suit in Shanghai?

There are many places such as Science & tech museum market, Hongmei lu market, ansd a couple of fabric markets where you can have your shirts & clothes tailor made.

Any idea about what a fair price to pay there??  What about quality??

OK, forget the cheap fake markets and things like that. You'll get a cheap suit that looks cheap and will fall apart in about 6 months.

 

Pony up some money and get a real suit. Marks & Spencers carry a decent selection that can be tailored and they have western sizes. Expect to pay about 2-3000rmb for a full deal (including a shirt and tie).

 

If you want an excellent suit that will last pretty much forever (barring accidents and the such - speaking normal wear and tear here) go get a custom suit from Tailor Dave.

 

This guy is constantly voted one of the top 5 bespoke tailors IN THE WORLD. You can get a custom suit, made with imported fabrics, expertly stiched in whatever style you want.  Granted, it will run you anywhere from 4000-8000rmb, but suits of this quality in the west, such as Seville Row in London or Park Avenue in NYC will run you 3000eur or $4000. 

 

Highly worth it in my opinion if you get one made in a traditional business style that won't go out of fashion next year.

 

I have a suit that I bought from there about 4 years ago now.  Still looks awesome and new. I've worn it to weddings and have had people yell at me for being better dressed than the groom.  Seriously, they are fantastic suits. 

 

If you're in Shanghai, just go talk to them and see.  They can do suits cheaper I've heard depending on fabric, etc.  Worth a shot.  Here's the website so you can check for yourself:

I'm not affiliated with them in any way, just sharing info and I have been EXTREMELY happy with their service and products.

In China I paid between 2k-4k for custom suits.  But I think you can get the for as low as 800 depending on quality and material.  Just remember, you get what you pay for.

 

One good rule of thumb is to look at their custom dress shirts.  If you have any good ones you brought from home take a while to really feel the texture and weight of the fabric used.  Then take a look at what they offer in the tailor shop here.  Chances are it will feel like tissue paper compared to the dress shirt you bought back home.  Most of the materials they use here are really flimsy and won't last long under normal use.

 

Research materials online (types, thread count, shrinkage,etc...) then you will have good questions to ask a tailor.  And bring pictures of suits you want them to copy.  The typical cut they use looks really cheap on a non-Asian.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
