Founder Xia Kejia (Dave K.C. Shiung)

Regardless of Chinese and foreign, suits are always indispensable in the big era. Mr. Xiong Kejia is one of the masters of the Haipai suits under this great era.

Mr. Xiong was born in Taipei in 1949. At the age of 14, he followed the Shanghai suit master Xi Yi, who came to Taiwan with the National Government. Mr. Xiong recalled that time "no wages, no beds, what the master said is", every day is 

Open  your eyes, grasp the root needle, keep the seams, and do whatever you need to do.

 

Hard memories always grow sweeter and sweeter over time. Mr. Xiong recalls that time when he was studying, he said: Every day after sewing, he waits for a bowl of noodles. When he is sewed, he will open the cover at the bottom of the cutting table and sleep on the floor. The master did not speak a word, did not take the initiative to teach anything, always observe silently, feel that it is possible to learn to do the next step.

The master did not speak a word, did not take the initiative to teach anything, always observe silently, feel that it is possible to learn to do the next step.

 

  After 13 years of hard work, Mr. Xiong opened his first store in Zhongshan North Road in Taipei in 1975. In 1996, he was invited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Service Bureau to serve as a technical director for the production of diplomatic corps suits. In 1998, he took the orthodox Shanghai cutting crafts opened its first store in China in Shanghai and launched the Renaissance Road in Shanghai.

 

In 2007, Xiong Kejia suits that adhered to the traditional craftsmanship were selected by Forbes magazine as the top ten tailored suit stores in the world.
One of them, along with the famous clothing stores in Italy and London, became the only custom-made suit shop in China that was internationally recognized. Mr. Xiong was also praised as a "treasure-level tailor" by American Daily Telegraph.

Mr. Xiong often said to the apprentices: "The tailor is to show the identity of a person and make him look like him.
"The suit is a man's shirt in the mall, and the tailored suit is the ultimate spirit of every man who pursues excellence."

 

Thirty-five colds and the past have passed, just like the French paulownia rooted in Shanghai. The suits have already been rooted in the history of China. Since the 1930s, the Shanghai suits that have been displaced from the times have finally 

circled with Mr. Xiong. When I arrived in Shanghai, some people said in the past: "Go to Shanghai, find a job; go to a suit shop and make a suit." Now people will say, "Go to Shanghai, find Xiong Kejia as a suit, and pursue your dreams!"

"You"-based business philosophy

It is probably difficult to find an operator like Mr. Xiong.

"The suit teacher should show the identity of a person and make him look like himself." Mr. Xiong often said that such a concept has been implemented in all corners of Xiong Kejia's suit.

 

When wearing a suit from Xiong Kejia, you can only see the fabric logo used in this suit on the inside of the suit. After a while, you

 find that the brand label is hidden in the inner pocket, which seems to violate the fashion industry. Common sense?

 

Another interesting and common question is that many reporters who have interviewed Mr. Xiong have asked: Are there any celebrities who have come to you to make suits? Why not hang celebrity photos in the store as a solicitation? .

Mr. Xiong said that most of the suit masters, like him, were originally trying to acquire a skill. After years, they became senior suits who could take care of the facades of political and business celebrities. Even if they were so close to the dignitaries, Mr. Xiong said that he could not surpass himself. As a suit teacher.

 

Like Mr. Xiong’s idea - The tailor makes a man, the suitor shapes the hero and leaves the stage to the hero.

In Xiong Kejia suit, the production of each suit is unique, close-fitting, degenerate, energizing, and showing the best style of the individual through the interpretation of the wearer. Therefore, we do not sew the high-profile brand name in a visible part. Instead of using celebrity models as a means of soliciting business, they are willing to hide behind the scenes.

 

Because this is not a suit that makes you look like "who", you are the master of this suit, this is your stage.

The spirit of the suit - the head

Have you seen the cock that is arrogant and arrogant? With a bright red cockscomb, with sharp eyes, confident and proud of his chest, exudes the pride of male species, if the suit is the shirt of a modern man, refuting The head is the spirit of the suit to show men the confidence.

 

The head is the collar part of the suit. The shape of the head can give the suit vitality,

create a chest line like a cock, the prominent chest muscles shift the visual focus, and modify the slightly protruding abdomen, so wearing a beautiful type of head Men in suits always look extraordinary and confident.

However, there are not many suits that are made by the heads. If the hand-stitched heads are not able to show such charm.

I asked Mr. Xiong, what is special about hand-stitched heads? Mr. Xiong recalls the hard time of being an apprentice...

The first requirement of the master craftsmanship for the introductory learning is "the slogan", which uses the eight-segment to sew the hemp hem on the ram, each needle must be smashed, and the left index finger is provoked. In order to make a memory-bearing head, why is it? The master does not say, "It’s like this," and it’s been a long time since it’s been sewed for half a year.

 

 

 

Under the influence of fast modern technology, the collars of most suits have been replaced with hot-melt linings to join the machine, which has improved efficiency and reduced costs, but lost the beauty of the stylus and lost it. The energy that the suit should have, the slightly higher suit is to stitch the fabric and the lining with a blind stitching machine for the trousers.Under the influence of fast modern technology, the collars of most suits have been replaced with hot-melt linings to join the machine, which has improved efficiency and reduced costs, but lost the beauty of the stylus and lost it.

Therefore, although the manual method of making the head is time-consuming, Mr. Xiong insists that the head of all suits is hand-stitched with natural woven linings to create the ergonomic and memory. The sex of the head shows the best line of the suit. The suit made by this method can maintain the original line even after being worn many times, squeezed in the closet or simple journey, always showing the wearer's Gentleman.

After 30 years of economic development, the demand for suits by Chinese people is growing, and the ready-made suits produced by the assembly line cannot meet the new generation of Chinese gentlemen.

The craftsmanship, workmanship and continuation of the traditional suits will provide a higher-level suit experience for men seeking taste.
