    I will be visiting Shanghai (China) end of the month and would like a couple of suites made out there. I am only there for a week, so they should be able to do my first fitting within this timeframe.

    I have tried Dave's in the past and was not very impressed.

    My budget it around $500-750

    Thanks in advance

    Wouldn't bother with that budget, might as well save some money for other purpose.

    With your budget you could get some nice RTW stuff on ebay

    I think there's WW Chan in Shanghai, probably be out of your price range though.

    Don't think there's much of this kind of thing in Suzhou TBH.

    I have tried 2 Dave's - One is known as "Dave's Buility" and the other is out of a residence. The Buility was good while other wasn't that impressive. Both times it cost me around $500 since the material I chose wasn't that expensive.

    If you can recommend a couple of places and their addresses this would help, I would also be very appreciative if you can provide me with a price range.

    Thanks gain

    Raymond kiang used to work for WW Chan and left to open his own shop in Shanghai and has several shops there. I don't remember his prices but believe they start at about $600USD or so but I'm not sure and its been a few years.

    My friend's suit was pretty impressive and he got it made at Bandini on Maoming Lu, Shanghai. Check that out.
