    Baotou topic is never new to locals, not secrets, many locals know, if he go to Mirador may be cheaper. HKD80 per yd Chinese/Indian shirting can be HK$16 per yard if tailor shops. buy one roll. Baotou charge CMT 300 to walk in customer while they charge $180 to tailor shops. You just pick extreme case where those tailor shops have extremely high rent and fancy decoration. Salesman are all wearing 3 piece to serve you, with a lot of advertisement. Those kind of customers are rich and famous, not for general public.

    General local public knows where to go, they may consider a shop with low rent, lots of fabric rolls with only one man (or with his family) inside the shop. Price maybe 20/30% higher than they get fabric by themselves with a nearer place.

    You made big noise in several local forums, they all become quiet to your response. To me, you are just a noise maker . This is a USA forum and this thread is mainly for foreigners. I cannot stop you making noise , go ahead and continue.

    I think in this thread, provide informations to good value tailor shops (which focus on general local public) is more helpful.

    Fat chance. You can use the "Ignore" function for all PekingRoadHK's posts though
