LM: You have gained a reputation for producing excellent and well-made suits among the cognoscenti – what is the secret ingredient to a Kevin Seah suit?
KS: First of foremost, we do only hand canvassed suits. Canvass is what gives the Jacket its structure. This process can only be done by hand at KEVIN SEAH. We hand stitch all buttonholes and hand attached our inner lining in our bespoke jacket, which are the hallmarks of a handmade suit. Most importantly, numerous fittings to ensure clients are happy with the final fit of the suit. We do not limit the number of fittings and will not allow a client to leave with an ill-fitting suit.
