Day 8,

Today we decided to head to the fabric Market. Now this seemed like we were out of the tourist area. The market was tucked in on this narrow street which was lined with little food shops and various vendors. It was like walking into an indoor flea market. fabric everywhere and dozens and dozens of spaces with different people selling different fabrics and different styles of clothes. Eric found a space that had men's shirts. After discussing price we settled on 92 yuen about $11 u.s. each..not a bad deal to be fitted and have them made just for you.
Needless to say he bought 6 different fabrics for 6 different shirts.

I on the other hand found a nice wool fabric and was able to have a 3 piece suit made for 550 yuen about $65 u.s..Measured to fit. It will take about a week to make. We can not wait to see how they turn out.
