From generation to generation, we never stopped tailoring clothes.

Taking after the acronym of our very founder, Mr Chiang Yick Ching, CYC has grown a whole lot as time passed. Electronic tablets have replaced the thick notebooks that we used to use, and our shops are now in their better days.

What never changed is our passion for quality clothes. 82 years on, we remain through to our essence – clothes that fit and last.

Nobody at CYC settles for clothes of lesser quality, so you don't have to either.

Local Posted 3 weeks ago

There is the stigma among men that caring about what you wear is feminine and not masculine, which makes the average man extremely cautious about trying anything past the approved white, blue, grey and black.

However, wanting to look and feel good isn't feminine—it's human. Tailoring offers you the opportunity to create your personal style. We urge you to take pride in the way you dress. How you present yourself to the world can be fun!

We were featured in Zao Bao last week. This is a translation of our story:

If shirts are said to be art worn on the human form, then the tailoring enterprise of CYC Made to Measure, whose flagship store is located in Capitol Piazza, is like a carefully curated museum.

Within the store, an arc-shaped wall is filled with a colourful array of fabric samples and a variety of collar styles. Hanging on the display rack in the centre of the store are exquisitely hand-crafted ready to wear items of superior quality.

Well-known for its sales of customised made-to-measure shirts, CYC was founded by Chiang Yick Ching in 1935, and is currently being managed by third-generation business owner Chiang Loo Fern.

In 1992, her uncle who was then Managing Director of CYC suddenly passed away, and her father was in ill health. It was then that Loo Fern resigned from her job as Commercial Specialist with the Embassy of the United States and immersed herself in the family business. She said, “It would be such a pity if the business established by my forefathers were to suffer a decline. That was the point whereupon I decided it was time to take up the challenge and shoulder this responsibility.”

In order to adapt to changing trends, Chiang Loo Fern left no stone unturned in aligning with market developments to ensure that CYC shirts kept up with contemporary trends. However, she never compromised on quality. Even though local manpower costs are substantially higher, she resolved to keep the manufacturing operations in Singapore.

Chiang Loo Fern also encourages younger family members to join this family business – 23-year-old niece Cara Chiang joined CYC in February this year.

Cara Chiang said: “I did think of taking steps to modernise CYC, but after gaining a deeper understanding of the family business, I realised that CYC is in fact an indelible part of Singapore history. I am really proud of this, and now I wish to marry age-old traditions with the perspective of the younger generation, to sustain the family business for many generations to come. (more…)
