Stanley Market Hong Kong is famous for silks, both by the yard or made up clothing. In Thailand, Pattaya has many, many tailors who will sell you silk or make up fashions for Ladies or Gents. Myself & the wife have had numerous items made up in Pattaya, shirts, blouses suits, slacks, fabulous quality at prices 25% of UK. The famous street for shops such as this & everything else is called Walking Street (google it) & most are open till about midnight....Wilba.

I should add Singapore is famous for the 24 hour tailor.

Thanks once again Wilba, I will be taking several of your printed replies with me. Walking Street looks interesting - a bit like Patpong in Bangkok - will visit there (although I may have to put blinkers on my husband!) and Stanley Market in a quest for silk. Cheers.

I have responded but the auto moderation kicked in. It thinks foreign towns are some form of swearing. Have a look tomorrow.......Wilba.

We have been to Thailand often and they sell beautiful silkin many colours so if you go to Bangkok you will find plenty silk shops. Have a great time.
