It depends of what you are looking for. Cheap tailor made shirts, high quality suits etc. I have made suits between 600 and 7000 renminbi as an example. Shirts could be anything from 120 to 600. The high prices are from high quality tailors (like Dave's or Sam's) with excellent fabrics. Low prices are from places like Science and Technology museum's fabric market where fabrics are usually inferior. The market in Science and Technology museum is pretty ok for tourists. In cheaper places quality is often a hit and miss.

Hi Lois,

Any feedback on your experience?

I am looking for one too. I thought I read somewhere it takes about 24 hours to make one?

If I only have 3 days in Shanghai, maybe not enough time for me, huh?

Did you go to the tailor? If so, what was the turnaround time?

If you really need clothes made in 1 day, most tailors can do it. For men's suits, my family uses Judy on the 2nd floor of the South Bund Fabric Mart. Each shop specializes in a type of fabric: stretch, linen, lace etc.

Thanks. Is there a specific shop or will "Judy" suffice to identify the tailor? Have you used this shop for women's suits (skirt) or dresses?

As I stated above, Judy's shop does men's clothes. For women's clothes, you could ask Judy (shop 267) or look around at the other shops and try one that makes garments in the style (and fabric) you want.
