Silk in Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

A relatively new branch of the 150-year-old Ruìfúxiáng silk store, this place does all manner of silk items, from scarves and shawls (from ¥158) to slippers and hats (from ¥50). It’s a great place to come for Chinese-style clothing (women’s cotton qípáo start at around ¥300, and silk from ¥2500), men's shirts and children’s outfits.

The quality is good, and the prices, which are marked, are all very reasonable considering how famous the brand is.
