Firstly, it's worth going just for the experience. The place is a maze of small stalls and shops, full of people trying to convince you to buy a suit or shirt or some such. Plus one long guy on the second floor selling antiques. I enjoyed just walking around the place, even before I decided to get a suit made. I went to Stitch and co, #181, to get myself a light grey suit for summer. The place is run by Linda, who couldn't be more helpful. She also has a great eye for detail, and gives great advice on style and all the other things that make up a good suit. The measurements were almost spot on first time around, although Linda was quite happy to make alterations for free until the fit was just right. There was also a lot of choice in terms of cloth and lining. Overall it was a very good experience, I got a great suit, and I'll be going back again for another suit.

Having been to Shanghai multiple times (6 as of writing this review), there are a few places that I would recommend anyone to stop by. One of those places happens to be the South Bund Fabric Market. Not to beat around the bush, but this place isn't the equivalent of Savile Row, it's not a place to buy the most extravagant nor fancy articles of clothing. What is is though, is one of the better valued prepositions in Shanghai. If you're tired of having to buy off the rack suits that do not fit well without breaking the bank, look no further than Joyce & Rita, stall no. 129. Upon entering the stall, you're greeted by one of two fine ladies, Joyce or Rita (shocking, I know). They'll welcome you with a warm "Hello" (their English is fine and easily understood). You notice on the storefront how many samples of works there are present. You're presented with mannequins displaying the bespoke two, three piece suits, individual waistcoats, trench-coats and even Changshan 長衫. The selection of design is then easily matched by how many swatches of materials and colors presented in their sample book. Any design that you would want, could be made should you choose to do it. Now, what may distinguish this stall apart from the hundreds of others that surround you? The answer: quality + service. To give a little bit of background information, I am a big American (although of Asian descent). I have a 50/51 in. chest, and a 38 in. waist, which is a "drop" of 12/13 and impossible to find in stores in the US. If you're lucky enough to find a 50/52L sports jacket, good luck finding a matching set of pants. That's where Joyce and Rita come in; it's none of that off-the-rack or made to measure crap, it's bespoke. I spent around 350 USD for a "custom" paisley lined sports blazer in Men's Wearhouse; even after a few alterations it still wouldn't fit anywhere near as good as the suit I bought from Joyce and Rita. Why did I specifically list that price, well it's because that's the price you can expect (give or take 10%) for not just the blazer, but for an entire premium bespoke suit. 400 USD out of your budget? No worries, Joyce and Rita offers materials for a more valued preposition starting at around 200 USD. For those that do not have standard body shapes and need a "bespoke", not MTM crap, there is no reason why one would not come and venture to this stall. Once you have selected your style and choice of material, then begins the fun part, measuring. As stated before in it being bespoke, they will take around 15 or so measurements to create the perfect fit for you (careful, slightly touchy around the crotch). The measurements are to ensure that the first fit (roughly around 7 days' time to create the garment) can be as perfect as it will be for a first impression. Not staying in Shanghai for that long? No problem, as Joyce and Rita can ship domestically (5 USD) or internationally (~50 USD) to any address that you give them. After the purchase has been made, they'll give you their business card and contact info (WeChat). You can now rest assured that you have made one of the best value and overall best purchases during your stay in Shanghai. I have ordered 3 shirts, 2 suits, 1 blazer and 1 winter coat from Joyce and Rita and I am glad that I have done so. I've worn these garments to weddings, work meetings, and while visiting family. The fit and quality of the material is worth venturing out to this store if you're in Shanghai. For those who do not want mass produced clothing for a price equal or lesser than what you can find in the US, look no further. Their care and guidance during material and style selection is genuine to what they believe will be the best look for you. Their communication for what they're able to offer you is caring. And should you need any adjustment on the garments that you've bought, they'll be there for you when ever you're in Shanghai.
