  • Good fabric Market with a lot of choices! For tailor-made suits, I recommend you to go to the 1st floor, at Jack shop (number 132). They are nice and professional!!! Good prices and excellent results! For dresses, please avoid Faye Design shop (number 127), bad seller, bad advice and results were awful whereas prices remain expensive!!!!
  • A great fabric market, with many stalls. A great place to get tailored clothing. If you're looking for standard jackets (not tailored) this may not be the best place
  • Best place for (cheap) tailored clothing in Shanghai. Quality depends on the store you choose. About 100 different stores on 3 floors available. Silk, cotton, wool, leather, cashmere: anything your heart desires. Delivery in max 1 week. But outcome of your order really depends on your taste and your choice of fabric and style. If you take advice from the vendors, don't be disappointed if your suit doesn't look like in the magazine. You have to know what you want! No, or at least very few fake clothing here. Don't get fooled by some rubbish offered outside.
  • Just off exit #3 from Nanpu Bridge on the purple line (#4 line), this is probably one of the better places in price and selection to have clothing made. As a general rule, you should be able to talk them down by a 1/3 of their initial asking price.
  • Great market for bespoke clothing. Hard to find any fabric that is a bit more eclectic though.
