I've been to the South Bund Fabric Market several times, but after discovering the spinning market across the street at 428 Lujiabang Road (South Bund Spinning Market), I go there. It's cleaner, less crowded, the prices are similar, and there are plenty of tailors that speak perfect English. I especially recommend you go to Harrison's store to get the best... More

The key to buying clothes here is knowing which shop to go to. With the help of a local Italian restaurant owner we were able to drill down on where to go. The best shop for men and women's clothes is booth # 237 and owned by a lady named Jennifer. After looking at her shop I'm convinced my due... More

Easy walk - follow the signs from Lujiabang Road Metro Stn. Brought along a fully-lined dress to be copied. The 3 floors were crowded with ex-pats and tourists, and after dithering outside a lot of the stalls I decided to take the leap and asked for a price to copy the dress: 450 rmb (about $90Au) including material. I said... More

A must for visitors to Shanghai. Take clothes you would like copied as these work the best, although we have had great things made from pictures. Each little shop specializes in one thing - maybe a particular material, or a style. Shop around. Check prices with different stalls. If it is your first time then take a translator who can... More

More fabrics, designs and tailors in one building than you can ever imagine! Very good prices but BARGAIN for everything...cashmere coats made to order (one day if need be but leave a little time for alterations!), rain coats, jeans, blouses (paid $15 to copy one of my favorites that I happen to have brought with me!) "Genuine" Shanghai Lululemon pants... More

I was tentative to visit. I have been to SH many times but never thought about a tailored suit. My suits were looking a bit dated. So I decided to give it a go. I did some research and chose to go to Joyce and Rita. I walked around the entire place first just to get a feel for what... More

I had five pair of mens long dress pants made at Judy's number 267 on the second floor. Service and time taken was excellent. Cost about $35AUD per pair . Great value and exceptional quality Corrie Brisbane Australia

I went in thinking I would just get a well tailored dress and jacket but came out with a skirt with matching jacket, a Burberry style coat, two dresses, a scarf and a pair of jeans! I went to three different stores on the third floor, where I was told it would be cheaper. Each store had wonderful service, good... More

Highly recommend going straight to the 3rd floor, there seem to be less sales-y stalls up there who have better craftsmanship - maybe because the tourists don't make it the whole way up to the top. Have a very clear idea of what you want before going in, and they will make it happen.

My wife (with me as pack mule) seriously dented their inventory of silks, silk blends, cotton, shirting fabrics and fastenings. Under one roof there are thousands of beautifully patterned fabrics for home sewers or those who want to leave it to the professionals and have clothes made. We were happy with the price, quality, and lack of pushy touts. Would... More
