Q: Where can I find trousers or suit to rent in Beijing?

I will have a small graduation forum and unfortunately don't have a suit. I don't want to buy it right now, but still need a trousers or suit. Does anyone know any places where I can rent a suit in Beijing? Thank you!

Only 'sha-bi' would rent suit in China, so most likely ...... still no rent-a-suit in China. Here's post from 2013 through Yahoo-gle:

At any university graduation i attended in China, myself and the other FT's were 'over-dressed' in formal suits.

the students wore jeans/t-shirt combinations and poorly fitting gowns (any old thing really), and the local teachers wore very casual clothes, and this was in one of the more 'prestigious' Universities in Tianjin.

 

Chances are you can get a suit made cheap and to fit from a local tailor.

if you just want something quick & cheap that will look ok just go to G2000

 

it's like the H&M of office/formal attire. It's not armani but it'll be fine and they're not shit quality. I have a tan G2000 suit I wear sometimes it's totally presentable looking.

 

If you don't care about having formal clothes don't bother with tailors just buy something off that rack that you like OK

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
