TITLE: TAILORED UNDERWEAR
LOCATION: ALLEY BEHIND ZHENGDE (正德)
MISSION: BUY LONG JOHNS
DATE: 2012-01-04

They say that the two coldest weeks of year come in January, so I thought I would prepare myself by getting a pair of long johns. I didn't bring any from Sweden because of the draconian rules governing how much luggage you can bring on an airplane; anything that wasn't needed on arrival had to go. I first went to the old, small supermarket (正德) but didn't find any. Then I went to the new, big supermarket, Hezun (贺尊), where I got a pair of XXXL pants. I couldn't try them on at the supermarket but I measured roughly and thought they would be okay. Not. The lenght was perfect but the crotch was so big it almosted streched halfway to my knees. Because of the cold weather I decided to to return them immediately. Instead of betting on another size or running around looking for another store, I just went to the tailor where I buy tea. The couple running the store have moved to a new, bigger shop just next to old one and this was my first visit (see 2011-10-17 for their old place). The new store is at least three times as big and much nicer. After some tea-drinking my measurements were taken and I off I went. The pants will be give top priority I was assured and they will be done in a day or two.

"Då borde det väl finnas någon modell som passar dig??"
