In Beijing, "Hong Du" is a traditional, well-known brand for tailoring service. Under the support of former premier Zhou Enlai, the brand was established in Beijing in 1953. Since then, the tailor masters of "Hong Du" have been making suits for generations of Chinese top leaders and foreign dignitaries. In fact, Mao Zedong was wearing a Hong Du tunic suit when he posed for the portrait currently hanging on Tiananmen.
A ten-minute walk from Tiananmen Square will take you to the flagship store of Hong Du. The main hall looks rather spacious. Apart from Chinese tunic suit and Qipao, they also make business suits, formal dresses, swallow-tailed coats, jackets, and shirts.
The various top-grade fabrics are imported from abroad. Including labor, prices for a suit made with Italian fabrics range from 8,700 yuan to 15,000 yuan. While a suit made from British fabrics would cost 15,000 yuan to 23,000 yuan.
The shop assistant told me that making one suit generally takes a month. And you need to go to the shop three times: the first to select fabric and style, the second to try it on, and the third to pick it up.
The shop also provides alteration service.
