Shanghai workmanship (that of the dubbed ‘the Red Gang’) is considered the traditional (and better) way suits are always made. It involves, among others, a full-length floating horsehair canvas, warm-washed separately from the fabric, cooled, then hand-padded to the lapel and the chest.Is Shanghai workmanship considered to be the best?
Also when getting shirts made, will I also need to provide the fabric, just like the suit?
PekingRoadHK’s blog has more details about this ‘sunsetting craft’ if you’re able to read Cantonese.
And yes you need to bring your fabric when having shirts made, if you visit a baotou. Baotou usually don’t carry fabrics. A scarce few of the baotou sifu will offer fabrics tho.
