Fabric Market in Shanghai - on SHownbylocals.com

If you prefer tailor-made to ready-made, head for Shanghai’s fabric market. For the best deals go to the third floor (of three) where stallholders pay less rent and therefore offer better prices. When choosing your fabric beware of fakes: genuine silk should cost between 30-40 yuan per metre; cashmere 90-140 yuan per metre. Every stall has a tailor, and you should expect at least two fittings.

If you don’t have time to go to the fabrics market, some of the tailors offer also to come to your hotel. They will bring some selected fabrics with them.

If money is no object, most of the five-star hotels also have their own tailors who can make you a suit costing anywhere between 2,000 and 7,000 yuan.


399 Lujiabang Rd (near Liushi Rd)
