Sorry for bumping old thread.
Baroman and many other prestigous "Red Gang" (Ninbo style) tailors left Shanghai before Communists took the country. But their old stores and staff were still there. Some of their apprentices carried the business on under those brands. And with those experienced staff, the businesses were still successful in Shanghai. If you go and ask a random local lander who is in his or her 50s, he or she would recommend you Baroman or Humsuit.
But sadly, they are now providing low-to-mid end services. Most of their products are MTM and fused. They dont even have a salesman speaking English, even a word.
