Custom Tailoring

For those who don’t have time for a tour but would like to take advantage of Shanghai’s renowned tailors, we organize for one of our preferred tailors to come to your hotel with fabric samples and measure you for suits, shirts and coats.

You will enjoy our preferred pricing, our back up service and quality guarantee.


Our tailor meets you at your hotel. This service is available from 10 AM to 10 PM any day of the week. The tailor will bring books of fabric samples for you to choose from and measure you for a perfect fit.

What does this service include?
  • All transport and fees for your tailor – no hidden costs.
  • Enjoy our preferred prices – no need to haggle! It’s guaranteed to be less than half of what you would pay your hotel tailor for the same quality of fabric.
  • Expat Shopping Tours Shanghai guide is available by phone if you need help with translation. (Our tailor speaks English, but we’re here if you need additional help!)
  • Pay a deposit for your items and the balance when you have received everything (Chinese Yuan cash only).
  • Shopping Tours Shanghai back up service – this includes reordering if you get home and wish you had got more!
  • One-time fee of 500 RMB payable to the tailor. This fee also includes all of Shopping Tours Shanghai’s quality and pricing guarantees.

  • Bring along your (or your friend’s/husband’s/partner’s) favorite suit, shirt, jacket or skirt to have copied.
  • Print out a detailed picture to get full advantage of your tailoring experience. If you can’t do this or are unsure, don’t worry! Just let us know and we can arrange for the tailor to bring pictures for you to select from.
  • Remember to have cash for your deposit; after you order you will know the exact amount you need when your finished garments are delivered to you.
