I'm starting my own online tailor business. I'm a marketing nerd, so the process has entailed a tremendous amount of research. This has yielded my two lists below. I'm posting in hopes that others can make some use of it. The upper list includes those firms that I deemed "professional." It's close to exhaustive (edit: maybe notThe second list contains smaller manufacturers that I deemed "Asian companies that have shitty websites and thus probably don't get a lot of sales from the web." It's not remotely close to exhaustive. (They were to be candidate suppliers.)

I get the impression that these businesses are desperate, and they'd probably cut you a nice deal if you asked. (You ought to be able to get them down to USD 10-15 per shirt.) In negotiating, work what you've got: you'll tell SF about them if you like them, you'll order more if the first fits, you want to order but just don't have the money. If anyone else is starting their own online tailor business--I hear it's all the rage--PM me and I'll send you my data.
