Niko
Wessel

He began his career at Closed, and he has spent time in New York and Munich between then and now. Now he’s back. Thanks to Niko Wessel, men’s jeans no longer just fit well, they now sit well – a portrait of a clothing technician.

A yellow measuring tape hangs around Niko Wessel’s neck, standing out against his black shirt. He looks a bit like a tailor. Wessel laughs, “Almost! It is actually my most important work tool. I measure a lot, every day.”

Wessel works in quality assurance at the headquarters of Closed in Hamburg. His area is the men’s collection. And above all it is jeans.

Before a collection is produced, each piece often goes back and forth numerous times between the designer, sewing room, laundry – and, of course, Wessel.

And there are many things that can go wrong along the way. “There are always problems. That’s part of my job and I have to manage all of it so things turn out well.” Sometimes it’s people who are the problem, sometimes it’s about communication, and sometimes it’s about the threads themselves. All this, says Wessel, is completely normal. So, along with six other team members, he controls every detail before an item is finally produced. The biggest focus is on the fit. This, by the way, is something that is not only tested theoretically, but also practically. “We always try on things – we make clothes that must fit well and sit well.” And making jeans, explains Wessel, is a science in itself.
