This is a great place if you know exactly where to go and what to buy

I have been there 3 times over the years and I will plan to be there again. This is a huge building with hundreds of crowded, dark and dirty. There are now many tourists but also... read more

I went to two different stalls: Mr/Mrs Yang (389 I believe) and Jack 132: got a suit at the one and two shirts at the other. I was a bit hesitant (having read some negative reviews), but I think there's no place else in Europe/the US you can get a suit or shirt fitted for less money! In addition, the... More

I have been there 3 times over the years and I will plan to be there again. This is a huge building with hundreds of crowded, dark and dirty. There are now many tourists but also locals which continue to shop and have everything tailored. I have always a recommendation of a local colleague as the place he goes himself.... More

Like many markets in China, this one is overwhelming. I read the reviews on Jenny and they were spot on. Other stalls are constantly harassing anyone who passes by. Not #237, Jenny and family are busy waiting on customers. Had 2 suits, trousers, and many shirts made. 3 days, no problem. Very fair prices, good quality. Tip: Have an extra... More

Tailors and clothes shops everywhere, so how do you chose one from another. It was great to see but we didn't have anything made, just too many shops.

Second time at Smith's Tailor (Sam), located on the corner of this market. Beautiful tux and handmade linen shirts, made overnight back in 2008, and just this past Oct., 2014, had another tux, and more shirts made, again within 24 hrs. The market is filled with small individual stalls, making & selling men's suits, shirts, pants, etc. and ladies oriental... More

Do your research, there are lots of reviews on the stalls. The market has three floors with about 60 stalls on each floor. Walk around and see what you like noting the stall number. I have been more than once. I usually fly into Shanghai at the first of my trip, visit, get my clothes measured then travel. The day... More

This is very much geared toward the tourist, not a great selection of material, very noisy, pushy, crowded and dirty. there were many local women going through a box of dime a dozen scarves so I assummed they would be a reasonable price, when I asked I was pulled away from the crowd (always a sign of things to come)...

First time visiting this establishment. We were looking for a length of material for a dress. Compared to the fabric and tailors market across the road this one is much more busy and has less options to purchase material by the metre. Also it is more touristy with shop owners calling out to you like they would at Xianyang Market.... More

This is one major place in Shanghai to get tailor clothing made. Similar to comments from other reviewers come with an idea of what you want made and make sure you have plenty of time to return for a second and, at times, a third fitting. I have returned to shop 250 every year for many years. They are trustworthy... More

We visit the fabric market on the first day of every trip to shanghai.. Have had various pieces made, including men's suits, cashmere jackets, dresses and leather goods. Quality ranges from very good to poor, do your due diligence before you commit. We had a leather jacket copied on our recent visit and it was perfect. Be prepared to bargain.... More
