A designer knows he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away. Simplicity is, then, the key to perfection. Simplicity as it seems, shall be the key to success, and this is especially true for Jack Custom Tailors, where every employee work with integrity, the honesty to oneself, without being complacent or overt. Despite with its minuscule manpower of just 5, Jack Custom Tailors has proliferated to success by its leaders, Mr S.Jack and Miss Sheila, through the means of proffering bespoke tailoring with brands such as Ermenegildo Zegna, Cerruti, Dormeuil, Holland & Sherry, Valentino, Scabal, Inizio by Marzoni and many others, that shouts nothing but class and exclusivity.
An eponym to Mr Jack, Jack Custom Tailors is a name that represents the company as a whole, and marks the leader’s venture into the entrepreneurial world. Mr Jack’s entrepreneurship initiated when he was just 16 years old. “I started tailoring at that very age, as I was working for others. As time goes by, my passion grew from there.” Mr Jack reminisced. In 1999, Mr Jack realized the time was right for him to metamorphose his passion into an entrepreneurship. “That’s the thing about fashion.” Mr Jack commented, “Fashion is ever growing, you can never stop learning about it. This is why I decided to start my own entrepreneurship as I wanted to push my passion further.”
With passion, despite how arduous and laborious an adversity might seem, it shall be vanquished in an cinch. Passion is a powerful tool in overcoming any challenge, nevertheless how difficult it is. “We faced new challenges everyday, even as a kid to what we are today.” Miss Sheila mulled over, “With our passion, we are able to overcome any challenges. How difficult it is, we will overcome it, as we have passion.” Miss Sheila added. Through the beset of challenges, the leaders had persistently honed Jack Custom Tailors into a more resilient, and sturdy fortitude. Today, after more than a decade of operations, Jack Custom Tailors had made a name so prominent that competitors succumb to its presence. “We are never worried about competition. If you are worried, you have no confidence in your business and your clients will not trust your profession.” an astute Mr Jack indicated.
Over the years, many distinguished clients had patronized Jack Custom Tailors, such as high profile officers, ministers; such as Mr S. Iswaran, a Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Second Minister for Home Affairs and Second Minister for Trade and Industry, alongside presidents. This fact alone depicts how much of a caliber Jack Custom Tailors possesses. Nevertheless, this resounding success could not be procured through the teamwork and manpower of the company, as Miss Sheila illustrated. “Our workers are our pride and joy. We, as the leaders did not make Jack Tailors proud. Without them, we will not be what we are today.” To many entrepreneurs, their entrepreneurship represents the gratification of their actions. This does not differ for both Mr Jack and Miss Sheila. “It’s similar to a certificate you get when you were in school. You feel proud and you work harder to achieve more.” Miss Sheila gave an enthralling analogy to what entrepreneurship meant for the leaders.
Alongside passion, customers who patronize Jack Custom Tailors are what spurred the leaders to acquire achievements of a greater magnitude. “The satisfaction when customers scrutinizes the custom-made suits, made purely by us. The feeling derived from it is certainly unexplainable. It is so good that, innately, it makes us yearn for more.” Mr Jack expounded. As aforementioned, success only comes only when an entrepreneur is able to be honest towards self. Only by being down to earth, and not being over ambitious or complacent, then he would succeed. “I believe passion is very important to attaining success as well. Without passion, an entrepreneur will not have the strength to overcome difficulties faced.”
“Do something that you are passionate about, you can only succeed that way. Remember, success requires a long time to realize. You need to have passion, the strength, to hold on as long as you can to see success itself.” Mr Jack advocated young people who want to start their own business. Despite being especially practical, Mr Jack is intuitively ambitious, having substantive dreams for Jack Custom Tailors. “I believe we could push our own branding to a point where it’s comparable to premium brands such as Gucci or Prada. I truly believe in this dream.” Mr Jack divulged. “We also like to be the finest tailor in Singapore. We shall not settle for second place, and we will like to be at number 1 perpetually.” Mr Jack also added. “Why pay so much for branded fashion items such as Gucci or Prada? For the same amount, you can get your very own custom made clothing, with your very own initials.” Mr Jack concluded with a food for our thought.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue it. Jack Custom Tailor is not an entrepreneurship. It is a dream that is sentient, one that grows and ameliorates through time. It is a dream that has been refined and enhanced by both Mr Jack and Miss Sheila by the means of their fervent passion. Alongside their magnificent leadership skills, without doubt, Jack Custom Tailor is already on the verge of greatness.
