Story


“I am a designer and expertly trained tailor who has an obsession for perfecting fit and quality.”

 

Growing up in Durban, South Africa, the formality of attire was swim shorts and flip flops. Ironically, I spent my time planning outfits for the forth coming days. It is this keen interest in menswear that would propel myself to becoming a designer and bespoke suit label owner. 

After graduating with a BA (Hons) Business & Economics degree from Bristol University in the UK; I had the great opportunity to embark on my tailoring and fashion career with Fielding & Nicholson Tailors, Savile Row, England.

It was an honour and pleasure spending these 4 years, shadowing tailors who have been stitching gents-wear for longer than I have been alive. Working within the British and European tailoring industries, gave myself the knowledge and experience to break-off on my own 7 years later.

The Kale & Co Bespoke brand is a cut of suit that has been engineered through Scandinavian and Neapolitan Tailoring. I couldn’t be more excited to share this style of suit with the South African market.
