“I am a designer and expertly trained tailor who has an obsession for perfecting fit and quality.”
Striving for perfection is a double edged sword. Nothing is complete until it it perfect. Nothing is perfect.
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.
Italians have a saying, “La Dolce Vita”.
Meaning, “The good Life”.
