    First post here, so be gentle! Does anyone know of a good tailor in Guangzhou? I am new to the city, and will be here for approximately one year. I want to get a few suits made up. A couple of lightweight for 'knockaround' and a couple of higher quality. Also while I am at it, new shoes would also be on the list. I am a British 12 1/2, so apart from ordering online and risking customs ,handmade in situ is the way to go for me while I am living here. All the retail outlets I have visited in the city only go up to a european 44/ British 10, the feet of dancers! I suppose I may as well add a few shirts to the list as well! I am well aware of the tailors available in Hong Kong, but wanted to know specifically about Guangzhou, and its immediate environs.

    Cheers.

    Hongkong is not too far away.

    From what I recall it takes only roughly two hours traveling from HK to Guangzhou using the train.

    I know it is not, but I was specifically asking about Guangzhou, if anyone had experience of using the tailors in this city?

    I really doubt any Guangzhou tailor would impress you.
