THE PROCESS FOR DESIGNING, MANUFACTURING AND MANAGING THE END-TO-END LIFECYCLE OF CLOTHES AT WORK IS NEVER EXACTLY THE SAME TWICE. WHETHER YOU ARE THE INDIVIDUAL END-WEARER OF A UNIFORM, THE UNIFORM’S BRAND OWNER OR RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR COMPANY’S INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND PROCUREMENT – ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.
jSD’s APPROACH, RESOURCES AND OPERATIONS ARE SET UP TO ORGANISE WITH FLEXIBLE EFFICIENCY AROUND THE VERY DIFFERENT NEEDS AND OPERATIONS OF EACH CLIENT’S SPECIFIC SECTOR, BUSINESS, BRAND AND END-WEARER.
AN OVERVIEW OF ALL THE TASKS AND DIFFERENT DELIVERABLES THAT MAKE UP THIS END-TO-END LIFECYCLE CAN NEVERTHELESS BE BROADLY UNDERSTOOD WITHIN THE FOLLOWING FOUR STAGES.
DEVELOPMENT + MANUFACTURE:
The jSD Product Developers lead a team that includes garment and fabric technicians, pattern cutters and highly experienced manufacturing professionals. This team is engaged from the outset of every project to support the designers with insights and technical innovation, including specialist expertise from jSD’s supply-chain network.
As soon as creative designs have been agreed, Product Development cuts and refines the patterns needed to machine a full range of samples of every garment, including final fabrics and trim. These samples are then used in the Wearer Trials described above. Final creative designs agreed, jSD Product Development take over the project lead to ensure that quality is retained at every turn and specifications never compromised throughout production.
jSD’s PROVEN SUPPLY-CHAIN
Independent research shows the major impact that uniform design can have on wearer well-being, which in turn impacts productivity, staff retention & brand expression – all critical to business value. That’s why jSD’s creative design process starts and ends with the wearer. Only it never ends. jSD puts in place the mechanisms for on-going wearer engagement and client feedback to feed a culture of constant improvement.
Jermyn Street Design matches each garment in each project to the ideal partner within our domestic and international supply-chain network. All share our Jermyn Street Design commitment to sustainability, quality and ethical standards.
KAM GILL jSD PRODUCTION MANAGER
In addition to cost-effective production without compromise, jSD’s manufacturing operations are set up to handle all “Made-To-Orders” with great efficiency. The success of any uniforms project is, in large measure, defined by the ability to meet exceptional needs and outliers as well as to set exceptional standards. Yes, no-one is uniform.
COMPETITIVE PRICES + FLEXIBILITY
Two further advantages of jSD’s large and robust domestic and international supply chain are highly competitive prices and flexibility. A policy of dual sourcing on large volumes is just one example of the company’s valuable experience at managing both risk and costs for clients.
QUALITY, ETHICS + SUSTAINABILITY
jSD’s Supplier Manual demands that contracted companies all meet the most exacting standards and specifications. jSD suppliers sign up to stringent manufacturing criteria not only in terms of quality but also ethical, social and environmental standards too. Thanks to regular factory audits and in-person site visits by jSD management, clients can be sure their brand values are safeguarded by jSD’s own.
