Bespoke | Dylan & Son Sartorial

“Labels say you are one of the boys, but a bespoke suit says you are the man.” Dylan & Son Sartorial, a Singaporean custom tailoring service launched in 2010, has taken the traditional definition of a haberdashery and turned it on its head, while throwing in a complete makeover for good measure.

Gone are the stereotypes of a dim, musty and cluttered tailor’s shop. Creative director and designer Dylan Chong reintroduces the concept of personalized tailoring by aligning it to a clean and sleek aesthetic that is both contemporary and timeless. While a monochromatic palette appeals more to professionals, they have also introduced a limited edition PRISM capsule collection featuring viscose-blend suiting cloths in interesting colors such as Salmon Pink, Yves Klein Blue and Copper Rust, which will surely add a dash of panache to any wardrobe.

Dylan & Son abides by three simple rules in approaching their work: fit/cut, colors/fabrics, and style/details (in that order). As such, each piece of clothing not only provides impeccable fit, but is also kept updated with attention to details and current trends, counting cult-status designers such as Patrik Ervell, Junya Watanabe and Kim Jones as inspirations.

Having grown up alongside a seamstress mom and a veteran tailor dad, Dylan Chong further attuned his keen eye for structure and detail during his travels to fashion capitals such as Paris, Milan and New York, as well as interning with Nic Wong of local brand nicholas. After gaining the relevant experience, Dylan decided to take over his father’s preexisting Oriental Tailor shop and provided it with a complete revamp, thus establishing Dylan & Son. Built upon the foundations of decades of meticulousness and quality workmanship, Dylan & Son provides us with a timely reminder that a well-made piece of clothing will never go out of style.
