Great experience, will order again
Jul 2020 • Business
I was on a business trip and had researched tailors in Shenzhen. I took some of my colleagues along and three of us got stuff made. I had a suit, tweed jacket and a custom designer coat. A Chinese colleague had a suit made and an American friend went all out with a suit, shirts and jeans.
Went back and had a couple of adjustments (for me just the waist on the suit trousers.
My American colleague was happy with shirts and jeans though didn’t realise the jacket he selected for his suit had patch pockets, which Stephanie fixed and had sent on at her expense.
My Chinese colleague was happy (and didn’t know he could get that quality in China!). As for myself, very happy. Personally I’ve been shocked by the number of people who have commented unprompted at my jacket, will be getting some more made and shipped over

Fantastic service and results. Ignore the bad reviews
Jan 2020 • Solo
I’m pretty shocked to see bad reviews for Jessica and Stephanie. They are one of the few tailor shops that speak English and really devote time and effort to making your clothes. For several years I’ve been going to Lark for detailed gowns and suits. I love when I try on my garments at the shop and how heads turn. Jessica has made about 30+ suits for my family and friends back in Canada and the States and has made me the best gift giver. She’s made suits without even meeting my family; measurements alone and perfect fit!! I’ve attached pictures below to show the tuxedos and gown she made for my NYE event and two other recent dresses Jessica made for me. I 100% recommended this shop. Tell them Janaia sent you!

Excellent Service, Good Quality
Oct 2019
Excellent Service:

We visited Stephanie Tailors by recommendation from a co-worker. We had the opportunity to meet with Stephanie and my experience was solid. She measured me correctly, made the suit within two days. We told her we were not able to return to the store due to our hectic schedule so she offered to come to our hotel for the fit check. Most of the suits were spot on the first try. Any minor adjustments she had done within a day and re-delivered back to the hotel. We were very pleased and appreciative.

Good Quality:

The suits are made with decent quality materials. You can choose your quality and thread count when you arrive. We decided to go with a cheaper quality this time since it was our first experience with Stephanie Tailors. To date, I have worn these suits about 5 times so far and the experience has been positive. 1) people comment on how they notice the suit is custom fitted and 2) no wear/tear has been observed thus far

For similar service and quality anywhere else, you would be paying upwards of $1500-$2000 for custom fitted suits in the U.S. We paid a fraction of this and it has been well worth it.

P.S. - Since Stephanie had my correct measurements I am now able to request and order suits to be delivered to the US for a reasonable shipping fee that is still nothing when compared to a custom fitted suit bought anywhere else in the U.S. I just had to do this recently and it worked out surprisingly well.

Worked out for me
Dec 2019
I understand a lot of people have negative opinions of Stephanie, but my experience was positive. A couple of caveats. It is my first custom-fit blazer. I was in China for work. I just got a blazer made as a "lark" (pun intended).

The deets:
Given I had 48 hours on a work visit, I went at a colleague's recommendation for fast, reasonable chance at reasonable quality, decent prices. I had a picture of a BR style blazer that I wanted her to match. Custom fit seemed a good option because of my size (5'7" on a good day, medium build but broad shoulder, narrower waist meaning that I either have too long sleaves, too much waist, too tight on shoulders, etc.).

She took my measurements, drew a quick and very rough sketch, and I paid a bunch of money. At this point, I was really hesitant -- the writing, the sketchy sketch, the small-ish hole in the wall shop, but even with the negative reviews on this site, I figured why not? If I had lost everything (not a lot of money), I felt it could be a personally teachable moment. Long story short, the following evening I picked the blazer up. It was reasonably well made, probably of similar to BR quality, and fit appropriately. At first I thought it was a bit short, but, when we looked again at the pictures from BR, I realized that it hit me where, if I were taller, an off the shelf one would hit.

My wife's review when I got home: "It's slimming." and "Not bad." and "You really need something like this so you look like you belong in ." If you knew my wife, you would realize that this is effusive praise.

Like anything else, I would hesitate to order first on-line; it's better if you can go in person and she measures because I doubt she has a return policy and I don't understand how what she writes matches real world measures of sizes. If you want an ok, custom tailored suit without the in-person visit, maybe an Indochino or some other storefront-based, large-scale, guarateed-fit-with-tailoring-allowance would be better. Higher end? Hong Kong, perhaps.

As always, ymmv, caveat emptor and all.

Avoid unless you like to be treated sub standard
Oct 2019 • Business
One of the lousiest tailors i encountered,first i was left alone halfway cos they went to entertain some other customers.

The materials were not even good for the price i paid. RMB 1900 for 4 shirts and 1 coat. And they claimed cos mine had alot of details; would a long sleeved shirt with piping, pen slot, embroidery and button down butterfly collar deemed ALOT of details? Anyways they couldnt get my orders out within 5 days as promised when I paid, they offered to courier it to Singapore and can still ask me who pays. I dont mind paying but they offered to pay for me. Then the shirts came and one of them had my name embroidered wrongly, wrong spelling. The materials didnt justify for the money I paid. Go to Thailand or Shanghai and avoid this shop at all costs.

I even had them to tailor for my company uniform before mine yet i get such POOR service from them.

For those reviews that are good,perhaps you havent came across too many bespoke tailors.

Have used this tailor for years
Dec 2018 • Family
After previously having a beautiful lace dress made on last visit, i met with Stephanie again to have two dresses made; 1 a copy of a picture and the other a copy of a dress I took with me. Measurements were precise and within 3 days I had 2 dresses that were exactly as I wanted. One required some minor adjustments to sleeve after trying on, but this was done on the spot without fuss. Still one of the best tailors in Shenzhen just make sure you are explicitly clear about what you want. Negotiate on price for a good outcome.

Don’t use!
Sep 2018 • Solo
Seeing the other poor reviews I’m now a little shocked that a friend would have recommended Stephanie to me.

Ive used her twice to have clothes made/copied from my existing wardrobe and the end product is hit and miss.

The first time she also accused me of not having paid her fully after the bill was settled in full at the time of purchase.

The second time she copied some of my favourite clothes but her versions were clearly made quickly and sloppily. Dresses with hemlines far too long, sleeves cut so small I can barely fit my arms through them etc.

I asked Stephanie to fix these and said I would cover shipping yet for 2 months she has ignored my messages.

She’s basically a rip off merchant.

Don’t use.

I have been going to this tailor for over 6 years and have had great results and beautiful clothes made
Apr 2018 • Solo
I am a very happy customer. Best to go back and try the clothes on if you can. Also recommended you take something that is a good fit on you to discuss how you like the tightness or fit of clothes on you. They have a natural inclination to more fitted approach. But if you spend the time to explain what you like the result is good

A costly mistake
Feb 2018 • Business
The mistake wasn't even mine. I'm not sure what went wrong I ordered a few suits and they agreed to ship them to my home country, I picked a very nice and expensive fabric, they took my measurements and off I went. When the suits arrived, none of the fit. They were too small. I emailed the company several times and they didn't reply. In the end I phoned and they said that they had made the clothes to my measurements but I must have put on weight!! so, in summary, I wasted my time my money and was called fat.
