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:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
