    Tailors

    This is kinda of a question related to a topic below But I thought it needed its own thread.
    Does anyone have any advice on Tailors in Shenzhen? I would like to get some clothing done.
    Can anyone recomend a good tailor for suits? What kind of prices can I expect how many trips for fittings should I plan? How long will it take? what price range can I expect to pay? Can I get discounts for larger orders? How is the quality of the work? anything I should watch out for or avoid?
    Any of these questions or advice you can give is greatly appreciated.

    I had some maternity t-shirts made a couple of years ago and they came out ok. I remember someone telling me to take a sample of what I wanted copied. But the last time I was over there I saw a lot of pretty jackets and suits on the racks that were being copied from catalogs and the quality was really good. Sorry I don't have any names of tailors. It normally takes 1-2 weeks to get something made and you may have to go back 1x for a fitting. There's a lot of fabric on the 5/F to choose from too.

    SoftBatch,

    Just heard that the Tailor Shop #21 behind the Fabric Market comes highly recommended.
