1) Wuzhijian Western Clothing View In Map
The name says it all (the latter half that is), as Wuzhijian is well-known among the expat locals who often frequent the shop for tailored suits, especially around Christmas time. The boss, Mr. Wu, learnt his trade when he was 13, and, at the current age of 62, really knows his stuff. Price wise, Wuzhijian is relatively reasonable, with an average tailor made wool coat setting you back around 1,000 RMB. Order ahead of time though, as most clothes take around 20 days to make. With an array of various fabrics and styles, folks in search of a good tailor charging a reasonable price need look no further than Wuzhijian.
