Very happy with our men's suits, women's jacket. There are a lot of choices. Bought some nice scarves. Also JASON (top of escalator on 2nd floor with big sign that says JASON) was great. The quality of the fabric and workmanship was fabulous. They speak English and were very accommodating. Recommended to me by United flight crew. Used them years... More

My best advice is, if you are having copies made, make sure you choose the same type and weight of fabric for the copies as was in the original! The main disappointments were because we chose the wrong weight of fabric. Some of the fabrics are seconds - so check your items carefully on collection! 308 (Zhao Guo Min) is... More

One of the great finds in Shanghai is the South Bund Fabric Market. It's a collection of a couple of hundred tailor shops, each occupying a 20x20 foot booth across three floors. you can get dresses, pants, jeans and suits custom made on about 48 hours at incredibly reasonable prices. Most of my wife's dresses have been well under $100,... More

Travelling by metro, it was a bit of a hike on a cold wet day to find this market. Early Tuesday morning but the shopkeepers couldn't seem more disinterested. Went with intentions to have a dress copied but left shortly after, figuring another 2 visits for fitting and collection just weren't worth it. Unless you are determined to get something... More

We were pleased to meet JoJo. She is an honest and hardworking seller. I have no doubt that she will do her best to deliver quickly your suits.

Since I am living in Shanghai, I tried a lot of tailors at soft bund spinning market. But now I only buy at shop 129. Suites, shirts and coats I have made there, in a very good quality! It was a recommendation to go there. Also the service is very good. Communication is no problem, they speak English. All my... More

Found this gem of a shop strolling through the market and was very impressed by their leather jacket prototypes. Spoke with Jeanne in English to find out more about their leather jackets and she was very professional, easy going and knowledgable in providing information. She wasn't pushy and didn't even try to sell me, and just told me about how... More

Tailoring a shirt is cheap compared to what you'd get in Singapore or HK. It's a hit and miss and I've had shirts made there which ended up a disaster. Jennifer from Shop 237 is probably the more reliable of the lot. I've made shirts from her shop twice and they fit well without further alteration. If you choose to... More

We came to nanwaitan every time we visited shanghai to get very good value tailor shirts. there are a lot of choices for tailored dresses too. After being there for many times we found price are pretty standard - around 110-130 per shirt for some daily shirts. If you want to get some better material for the shirt better go... More
