WE CHOOSE, CUT, AND SEW OUR FABRICS - DESIGNER BOW TIES MADE BY BOYS FOR BOYS
Jabez and Christopher Jenkins are the young, innovative designers behind Kings and Gents Accessories. Jabez, 13 and Christopher, 12 are the creative minds who choose, cut and sew the fabrics. They also decide which accessories should be made for their line. They started sewing with their mom when they were only 5 and 3. They became curious while she was sewing pillows and would reach up to touch the sewing machine, so sat Christopher on her lap and press the reverse button and had Jabez stand by her side and press the foot pedal to keep them safe around the machine. Eventually, Jabez asked could she take them to the store to pick out cartoon character fabric to make their own pillows and she did. Then one day, when Jabez was 9, he asked his mom could he use the scraps of fabric from the pillows to make 30 bow ties for boys and 30 hair bows for girls for Career Day. During Career Day he was first to sell-out of inventory, and sold out within minutes. At that point we knew we had something special and Kings and Gents Accessories was born.
