Jeroen Bik and wife, Miray Kafardian-Bik, created the Klein Epstein & Parker business model and operating structure with a vision to redefine the men’s clothing market place. Based on a deep understanding and a wide breadth of experience in the retail industry, both Miray and Jeroen have a solid and approachable vision for how to liberate men through fashion and attainable style. It is with this vision that we approach the national retail landscape through franchising.
The first Klein Epstein & Parker store, which features made-to-measure fashion, suits and shirts, is based in West Hollywood. The 2nd store opened in May 2013 in Costa Mesa at the LAB. The 3rd store opens in San Francisco March 2014.
The store concept caters to both a fashionable and professionally dressed demographic, with a sense of style that is both expressive and personalized. Clients include men within the fields of advertising, marketing, real estate, entertainment, management, law and more. Looking to extinguish the stigma of Made to Measure as too exclusive and uninspired, Klein Epstein & Parker promotes individualization and creative freedom in its clothing with fabrics and accessories that conjure one’s ability to unleash unlimited expression by way of a finely-personalized tailored fashion suit, jacket, pant, waistcoat or shirt.

CONCEPT AND FACILITIES REVIEW Klein Epstein & Parker is a Made to Measure retail concept. The 600-800 square-foot stores positioned on B1 locations on A1 streets/areas, provide the stores with a small boutique feel with good visibility and the right target customer demographics in the area. In addition, next to the core made-to- measure business, Klein Epstein & Parker offers a small assortment of shirts, ties, pocket squares, socks, shoes, hats, tee shirts, denim and knit wear, that speaks to a fashion focused “informed” customer. The operating model is clean, simple, approachable and yet elegant. The Made to Measure experience begins by first liberating the customer and helping them realize they are NOT FORCED to follow the industry trend makers and fit into a “box” when it comes to the look and styles they would choose. Rather, the customer is the master of their wardrobe’s destiny with hands-on support from the Klein Epstein & Parker experts.
The process begins with building a unique pattern. For this Klein Epstein & Parker uses “fit models” from either the slim fit or regular fit options. Once the basic size and fit are established the process begins to sculpt the clothing to shape a customer’s look and FEEL with precise measuring and fitting.
The KEP goal with each customer is to build a pattern that fits their own style, look and feel while delivering great comfort, all at a reasonable price point. The customer’s unique pattern stays in our file, so all future orders will be simpler and often with no need to refit. Now comes the fun part for each customer; creating a completely unique and completely “YOU” fashion piece. The customer picks the fabric for their jacket, pant, vest and/or shirt, chooses the collar for their shirt, or the lining for a suit, chooses the cuffs, the buttons, the embroidery and so many other style details. Customers can create a double-breasted cotton suit or a black linen tuxedo; a light summer shirt for your cruise; or a wide-spread collar power shirt for board meetings. K.E.P. uses only the finest Italian fabrics with fantastic ‘hand-feel’ quality. There is an vast array of choices, whether someone chooses a clean modern look, a heritage plaid for a vintage feel or a tuxedo shirt with a twist. The opportunity for complete customization and yes….liberation of the customer’s style and sense of who they want to be, comes to realization through the Klein Epstein & Parker process.
