Tailors in Beijing Shopping Markets
Beijing is proved to have the best price in the world on tailored suits and custom tailored shirts. You can get a quality tailored suit at the most affordable prices.
For the men, for about US$100, you can get a tailored suit equivalent in quality to something you might pay US$700-1000 if purchased in the United States. Tailored shirts are typically US$20-25 for quality fabrics.
For the women, the tailor fee is much more inexpensive, and you can tailor a silk Qipao, or pajamas, etc only with US$20-30 for quality fabrics.
- If you’re getting a suit on a short trip to China, make sure you schedule the tailor visit early in your stay. The tailor shops can turn a suit around in 3-4 days if necessary but are much happier to have about a week (it’s more difficult to get great pricing for rush orders). Expect to make at least two visits – one for the initial measurements, one for a fitting, and possibly a third for pickup. The last visit may be replaced by having the tailor shop deliver to your hotel.
- You really need to negotiate the prices. You should go to the more genuine tailors visited by the locals. Here, we have a list of Beijing top tailors most visited by Beijing locals.
