I have been going here for years, but hadn't been to Shanghai since 2011 and finally just went back. If you know a bit about fabrics and cuts, you can do very well here, but if you are a novice, I strongly suggest that you follow recommendations in order to get the best result. Bring a friend to help you... More

Susan & Holly Shop (Booth) 233, 2nd Floor. (For those of you who have never been to a market like this, there are several floors of little shops, jam-packed, row-after-row with the proprietors standing in the corridor bidding you to come in. Usually, their specialty items are displayed within the little shops which are about 3 x 6 meters in... More

I ordered 4 suits and the price was reasonable (under 1000 RMB/piece and part of the with 2 trousers). Fabrics were good. First they made 1 suit ready and I went to fitting. The trousers was at least 2 sizes too small and the jacket did not fit in the back. I had long conversation of these problems and they... More

Jimmy as a businessman has become dishonest and smug presumably after receiving one or two favourable reviews on this site. The following was my extremely unpleasant experience with Jimmy one week ago. I had gone to his shop 3 weeks ago to have one of my favourite jeans copied. My favourite jeans had a coloured thread running through the entire... More

I found Jennifer after reading some comments on other expat sites such as Smart shanghai and Thats shanghai. My first order with her went well. I ordered a jacket and i was able to pick up the jacket within a week as promised. I was less lucky the second time around. I ordered a suit, a blazer and two suit... More

Ordered three shirts from Mr. Tong and 4 pair of slacks. The slacks are slightly too big through the hips but the worst part is that they stitch the pockets to the inner lining and the pockets do not swing, so things can slide out if you are not careful. The shirts are a little too tight and his price... More

Currently working in Shanghai, I quite like shopping at the South Bund Fabric Market. I've had both women's pants (#237) and blouses (#357...they are great with linen) made here and have been quite satisfied with the quality thus far...hence the rating. However, I just want to mention a recent situation that happened with Jennifer at shop #237 this past weekend.... More

I have worked part of the year in Shanghai for quite awhile, and recently decided to update my 1990's wardrobe. Jennifer and her staff at #237 did a great job on a batch of French-cuff dress shirts. Her price was RMB120 each, which was reasonable enough that I did not bother to negotiate. Since I live here, their standard delivery... More

Excellent location to find many low to mid range tailor kiosks. Like many such places like this in China it can be overwhelming your first time. Most tailors have the same selection of materials so price and delivery times are the main negotiation points. My experience tells me the second floor has several different kiosks where the proprietor is very... More

I've ordered two full sets of formal wear, one from Jennifer #237 and another set from a shop in the same building. After wearing one side by side, I've decided that the workmanship of Jennifer #237 is better than my second suit: 1. The cutting of my clothes (the formal long-sleeved shirt) at #237 was accurate on the first fitting.... More
