About Chaiken

Chaiken (pronounced “CHAY-ken”) makes clothes that transform and inspire. We've designed them for the office, but promise they'll become the envy of your wardrobe. You'll reach for them often. (Sometimes even on weekends.) And not just for the way they look, but also for the way they make you feel.

We’ve hand picked the finest fabrics from around the world in our quest to create the perfect silhouette. Your legs have never looked so long. After trying on your first Chaiken piece, you'll see just what we mean.

Our garments are meticulously designed in San Francisco and proudly sewn in New York City.

Why wear-to-work clothes?

Wanting and having to dress up for the office are two very different things. Most of the women’s work clothes we’ve seen in stores and online have severely underwhelmed us. Since you're here reading this, we imagine you’ve been feeling the same way. So we set off to do better.
A lot better. Our aim is to make the best-fitting, most flattering, high-quality wear-to-work clothes around. We believe what you wear should be an enlivening experience, no matter your destination.

Get noticed for exactly who you are.

The Fit

Fit is our ultimate obsession. We dream in perfect proportions and precision-cut silhouettes so we can create clothes that feel nearly tailor-made. Our pants are coveted for the way they lengthen and slim while our dresses’ clean lines

show off your individual shape. When it comes to clothes, we’ve learned that flattery will get you everywhere. And, as master flatterers, we take our job very seriously.

The Details

We believe that less is more. So adding even the smallest design detail to our garments isn’t something we take lightly. We’ve researched the best zippers, buttons, threads and fabrics to satisfy our impossibly high standards in the

hopes of satisfying yours too. Consider yourself forewarned. Once you try your first Chaiken garment, there’s simply no going back.

The Design Team

We work in San Francisco but come from a bit of everywhere — near and far. Our design sensibility is a balanced blend of East Coast sophistication, California cool and impeccable European tailoring. Our inspiration comes from the city around us — the graceful taper of a skyscraper,

the contrasting textures of a landscaped garden, the bold colors of graffiti art. Our collections — although born from many perspectives and talents — reflect our shared desire to create thoughtfully designed garments that make women look and feel beautiful.
