I went to market after reading all the reviews online and had a good price in mind. I would suggest taking a picture with you if you can. Most shops have books to look threw but to me they seemed at bit dated. I'm young so I wanted a more modern suit. I got a jacket and pants for 450... More

Dazed, amazed, dubious and exhilarated--why stumble through hundreds of stalls on your own? Go with the experts of Shopping Tours Shanghai. Do plan to go back for fittings--plural--to get the benefit of custom tailoring. Not everything will work out, but my inexpensive black polyester pencil skirt fits like a dream, and I'm rather partial to my red silk cadet jacket... More

This is not for the faint of heart. There are three floors of stalls, many of which have similar presentation and products, so choosing can be bewildering. Plus the stall will have sales women - it is largely women - who have years of experience in parting foreign tourists from their money, so I recommend starting out on small items... More

Reading many reviews and feedback on stores I decided to go to store 251. I had a cashmere trench coat made up (680RMB), a suit jacket (450RMB) +2 pants (200RMB ea). I had pictures of items I wanted my trench coat and suit to look like. I am pretty happy with the trench coat, exactly what I was after, even... More

I was in Shanghai for 4 days and on the 3rd day, I visited this place. Bear in mind that they close at 6pm (the security guards will not allow you to enter unless you want to collect clothes) so go early. I had 2 shirts, 2 pants and a jacket made at Smith's Tailor near the entrance facing the... More

Great service. Quality interaction, willing to go extra mile, answers all questions, demonstrates authenticity of her product and friendly customer service. Had an awesome experience with her to purchase Silk Quilts. They bagged the quilts and compressed the air to help fit in our luggage. She is at 1F No. 107#. As always, inspect and inquire before you buy. She... More

If you want a fun cultural experience and need any business clothing or medium-quality designer knock-offs, this is a must-do. My husband and I visited the market at the beginning of April and navigated the stalls pretty easily and without help, but it was a learning experience. If you're in town for only a night or two, skip it-- you... More

This place houses hundreds of shops to make customized shirts, suits anything for both the sexes. We visited several shops to make sure that the rates were uniform everywhere which was rather a respite in China where bargaining is a must-must. Comparing it to India the only product (for males) i found value for money was the Linen shirt which... More

My recommendation would be Eric Chang from #310. Had a great suit (jacket, pants and shirt) custom made for 800 rmb.

This is a great place to get clothes custom fit. I went with 2 friends and we were a bit cautious considering some of the reviews below but we didnt have any problems. My partner got a suit with 2 pants and vest tailor made in 2 days for 920yuan, which is the best we could find. This was at... More
