Updated 2018 tailored suit

Hi there,

Realise this has been asked before but most of the answers are a decade old now!

We are looking for a 3-piece tailored suit in Shanghai for maximum 3000.

Can anyone recommend a tailor?

Hoping for a shop rather than the market for that price.

Many thanks

Is there any reason you would favour a shop rather than the market?

If you go to the South Bund Fabric market, you will be able to get a 3 piece suit for under 1,200 RMB. Will need to give yourself a few days for the whole process. I normally get the initial suit made in 3 or 4 days, but then allow an extra day or two if you need any alterations.. I have had a number of suits made in the last 3 years and all are still in perfect condition

Formal shirts are priced at 120 RMB at most of the shops in the market

Not sure if there is any variance in price from shop to shop. i just took a gamble on one the first time, was impressed byt eh results so keep going back to them.

I hope you understand those tailors shops are actually middle men and many little details are lost in translation while they outsource the job to others. It's mostly a gamble and you should allow enough time to negotiate price and make adjustments.

I know RJ Clothing focus on the production of tailored (made-to-measure) suits, but their suits starts at 3600 RMB (jacket + trousers) so its a bit higher than what you are looking for, but fantastic service. They have a great selection of fabric books to choose from (no man-made fibers) and all suits come with a 6-month free alteration service. You also get a glass of Whisky by Chivas Regal upon your appointment and their tailors also speak fluent English and Chinese and they really know what they are talking about. Highly recommended if you are looking for a different experience.

Very expensive. For this price they should give you the whole bottle.
