Get to Know Singapore’s First Bespoke Tailoring Brand
We all know that a well-fitting shirt does make a man. With so many tailoring stores available in Singapore, the options are just too many, confusing customers on where they should go. CYC The Custom Shop - Known for its rich heritage and meticulous attention to detail, definitely did not fail to meet our expectations.
CYC The Custom Shop was established in 1935 and was the first to offer custom-tailored shirts in Singapore. CYC’s trademark - perfectly fused collars has led to the initials “CYC” to be associated with quality and fine craftsmanship.
From the fineness of its stitching to the perfectly engineered cut and fit of the shirt, this commitment of quality workmanship has earned CYC a huge customer base including distinguished statesmen, respected royalty, prominent business leaders and every other man and woman who are looking for perfectly fitted custom made clothes that suit their individual taste and style.
CYC only uses the finest fabrics from Europe and Japan. It offers the widest range of shirt fabrics with a choice of over 2,000 designs and colours to pick from, with at least 30 different designs in white alone. Many of these fabrics are from the same cotton mills which supply to top international designer brands such as Hugo Boss, Zegna, Armani, and Prada. CYC brings in the latest fabric designs that are in vogue in Europe so that customers are always updated with the current season’s colours and trends.
Over the years CYC has also built itself a reputation in the corporate uniform market for clients like Resort World Sentosa, Standard Chartered Bank, Bank of China, AIA, Great Eastern Life and Sentosa Development Corp. CYC continues to focus its efforts on enhancing its image as Singapore’s finest custom-made shirt and suit maker to the discerning individuals by ensuring that its products and services continue to meet the same exacting standards that founders Chiang Yick Ching and wife Foo Ah Neok had set some 80 years ago when nothing less than perfection will do.
It is this commitment which has won CYC legions of repeat and new clients each year, as well as industry recognition. In 2005, CYC was one of the winners in the inaugural SPBA (Singapore Promising Brand Award) Heritage Brand Award organised by the Association of Small and Medium-size Enterprises to honour successful home grown companies with a history of 50 years and more.
