Are these sentences correct:

1-The cloth we produce has as good quality as yours.
2-I make as good money as I used to.
3-He has as great reputation as you do.

I think they are all correct but I think I never use this structure unless I am talking about the shape someone is in (He is in as good shape as you are.).

I would say:
The quality of our cloth is as good as yours.
I make as much money as I used to.
He has as great a reputation as you do. (reputation can be both countable and uncoutable if I am not mistaken.)

    My thoughts on these sentences are pretty similar to yours, Navi. When I use the "as good as" formula, I add the indefinite article:

    He is in as good a shape as you are.
    He has as great a reputation as you do.


    In sentences where the article wouldn't fit, I use another structure:

    He makes as good (a) money as you do. ??? He makes as much money as you do.

    I would say:

    I make as much money as I used to. :tick:
    He has as great a reputation as you do. :tick: (reputation can be both countable and uncountable if I am not mistaken.)
    - The cloth we produce is as good a quality as yours.

    "make as good money as"

    This phrase is generally used to compare activities that might produce money. It can be applied directly to the activity itself, or the person making the money.

    It is probably more correct to say "as much money as", but has become a very common phrase all the same. Certainly people say "He's making good money these days/where he works now".

    Google "as much money as" and you will see a number of examples.
