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

My boyfriend and I live in a nearby city so we decided to get some suits made. We both had to come back to Shanghai several times just to get refitted because he didn't tailor it correctly or literally didn't fix the problems from the time before. My pants didn't even have a button after the 3rd visit... My boyfriend's... More

In this building you will find hundreds of small tailer shops. It doesn't matter where you go and make your clothing, because most of them are working together with factories and your order ends up at the same people. You can make everything you want. Summer jacker, winter jacket, tuxedo, leather jackets, trousers. Choose from thousands of different materials and... More

We went there hoping to find some good fabrics like the ones in guangzhou, but the fabrics there were average and below average and the prices were high compared to other fabric markets in China, we didn't get any clothes tailored but tailors prices were fair without the fabric price, we bought some nice pillow covers and scarves but make...

Wow this place is truly amazing. Take careful note of the name of this place, South Bund Spinning Material Market at 399 Lujiabang Rd, because when we arrived in the area there were many fabric sellers on both sides of a busy street. Fortunately we started with this one which is amazing but later we went across the street and... More

Visitors should know that there are two branches of the market. The quieter one is at 428 Lujiabang Road, which has only two floors open to the public but a huge number of stalls selling men's and women's made-to-measure clothing. The busier one (loaded with tourists) is at 399 Lujiabang Road, across the (very wide) street. This is the one... More

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
