Westecs Gulshan district of Dhaka;: "Surplus production outlets" Top 5 Page for this destination Bangladesh Shopping Tip by Saagar

Bangladesh Shopping: 13 reviews and 11 photos

Given the huge textile production in Bangladesh, there is a significant surplus production over and beyond the order from abroad and B-sorting that remain in Bangladesh.
This is sold through quality shops (Westecs ) and the fake stuff and B-sorting ends up in less formal textile markets in town, such as in the Banga Bazaar.

What to buy: You will find some genuinely good clothes here, of well-known brands. I buy my shirts here if I can - last time a whole stack of them of which I still have some unopened three years after.

What to pay: Very little compared to the price for the same back home if you live in the brand-name home country or thereabouts. Maybe as much as 10% of the price.
