Where to buy a silk smoking jacket

My Mother, daughter and I are travelling to China this April with a tour group and the one thing--the only thing!-- my Husband wants is a Silk Smoking Jacket. He won't be with us so made to measure isn't an option and we're on a tight schedule so I won't be able to return to a store repeatedly.
Can anyone recommend a good shop with silk jackets available off the rack? Or a tailor that I could email and get something going in advance???
We'll be in Beijing and Shainghai...
Ideally (hate to post this in a community of strangers) he wants one with a big emboridered dragon on the back.... Judge! Judge away!
Thanks in advance,
Regards

A Google search will give some suggestions for both cities. Be sure to bring photos of desired dragon, all pertinent sizes, photo of man with minimum clothing; need pockets, belt, collar, color, lapel size...etc.

The fewer decisions to be made when in china, the better. How much time will you have, may take 1 or 2, or more days,

And what will he be smoking?

Supposedly the trip is over and done with " . . . are travelling to China this April". But pretty sure it didn't happen.
