SERVICES

At KAY-JEN, we offer two modes of tailoring services - Bespoke and Made-to-order. The first being fully customised to you with immaculate handiwork, and the latter, a pre-patterned and shorter production alternative but with the same design philosophy.

BESPOKE

All bespoke suits and trousers are personally measured, advised and cut by Matthew himself. The custom pattern is then relayed over to skilled and trusted craftsmen to translate your vision to form.

 

 
 

BESPOKE TROUSERS

Since our debut, we’ve established ourselves as a reputable tailor for bespoke trousers. Approached with ideal balance and fit in mind, our trousers are designed with an intent of being flattering, visually elongating and flexible with a clean elegance. Fully patterned from scratch and detailed by hand, our trousers are cut close to the waistline for a higher rise that is comfortable on the hips, accented with pleats and a gentle taper for a comfortable room whether stationary or in movement.

Lead Time 5 - 6 weeks
A minimum of 1 fitting is required 
All bespoke patterns are archived for future commissions 

Price upon request.

BESPOKE SUITS

Bespoke Suits by KAY-JEN are marked by our stylistic leanings to accentuate the frame. We’re known for our signature soft tailoring with classic proportioning, pleasing curvature and natural lines for an elegant silhouette that’s more than meets the eye. From a fully cut canvas structure, collars, pockets to finishing linings, every part of the jacket is constructed closely by hand to create an instinctive volume that is irreplicable by machine.

Lead Time 8 - 10  weeks
A minimum of 2 fittings are required 
All bespoke patterns are archived for future commissions

Price upon request.

MADE-TO-ORDER

Commissions using predetermined patterns. A shorter process for clients seeking the KAY-JEN aesthetic, here we start from preset bases with slight adjustments to your measurements. Constructed dominantly by machine with a lesser degree of hand-work, our Made-To-Order services are recommended to those looking for an affordable tailoring alternative or do not have the luxury of time.

No fittings are provided for MTO garments

MADE-TO-ORDER SUITS & TROUSERS

All made-to-order suits and trousers are based on preset sizes patterned by Matthew with KAY-JEN’s aesthetic of subtle elegance. Commencing from either unstructured or half-canvas constructs with limited adjustments to the wearer, patterns are then pieced neatly by hand-operated machine for a shorter production notice and affordability.

THE PROCESS

01. APPOINTMENT

The KAY-JEN atelier operates by appointment only. If you’re new to tailoring or curious in what we do, you’re more than welcome to visit us for a consultation or an in-person overview. Do note that appointments are obligation-free regardless of whether you’ll be commissioning with us.

02. CONSULTATION

This is where we take our time to thoroughly measure you - not just your body measurements, but to get to know your personal preferences across aesthetics, design elements, styling possibilities and lifestyle. Closely guided by our Founder and Head Pattern Maker, he’ll personally walk you through the design process, recommend fabrics and the steps thereafter.

03. FITTING

Typically scheduled 2-3 weeks following consultation, this is when we’ll conduct a primary fitting. At this step, you’ll be trying out the first draft of the garment as a test of comfort and to spot possible alterations. If any, the pattern will be updated accordingly and archived for future commissions.

04.COLLECTION

After about 4-6 weeks, your garment is complete. If there are no alterations required following an inspection and second fitting, you may collect your garment.

 

Any further alterations will be duly addressed and updated.
