I had a winter jacket made at #237. They managed to make it in one day and sent it to my hotel. Reasonable price. My husband had a suit made at another shop and it fitted beautifully. Rule 1) Must bargain!

The South Bund Market is worth a visit, even if you aren't buying anything... but with all the options, who wouldn't? I visited the market and walked away 4 days later with 2 custom made women's suits... couldn't have been happier and I know I couldn't have gotten these designs anywhere else for the price I paid (less than 100USD...

We visited Jack at stall 132. The prices were fair (i'm not really one to bargain hard for an extra 100$ or 18$ usd) and we had one suit for my husband made for 900 yen from thicker black wool with a raised pattern. My husband tried on a sample which fit him beautifully. Measurements were quick and efficient and... More

I was in Shanghai for a period of 8 days and decided to have a suit made. After reading numerous reviews on this webpage, I decided to try tailoring a suit at #237. I was met with good service, fair prices (Remember to bargain) and good quality products. I had 2 dress shirts and a suit (blazer and pants) tailored... More

Jack is on the first floor. Stall number 132. You need the stall number. This market can be intimidating when you arrive. Many venders trying to get your business with maybe not so genuine promises. We were fortunate to find Jack. He and his tailors made us two suits, one rain coat and one cashmere coat. My son is very... More

Shopping for that perfect and honest tailor is not easy. My shopping experience here has been mixed results. I finally found a good tailor but had to go thru some disasters. All of them will quote prices which are about 30% higher for tourists. Ladies and Mensa two piece suits or jacket/skirt for ladies will cost 500 average. Some fabric... More

Stall 237 (Jennifer) : I had 8 shirts made for RMB 150 the shirt (big size shirts for my husband, some had different inside collar colors). I gave them a shirt to copy and asked to increase the sleeves by +3cm (1 inch). Reverse engeenring was all well done even with the extra technical difficulty. Stall 334: I bought many... More

Go up to the third floor at the Fabric Market; walk slightly ahead then left as you step off the escalator and find 389, managed by Yang Yong Gang. The service here is always friendly, the prices are good and the quality is very high. Yang and his lovely wife can do anything for you and they will ensure you... More
