Tailor Truck: Get 3D scanned for a perfectly fitting suit in your neighborhood #WearableWednesday

NewImage

It’s easy to see from the images above that a well fitting suit can do wonders for your look. That’s the goal of Arden Reed’s tailor truck- they use 3D scanning to customize a suit to fit your body. After a successful kickstarter campaign, the truck is now fully functional and taking appointments in cities around America. The suits don’t come that cheap but if you’re willing to spend the money they will guarantee that your suit will fit perfectly!

Why Custom?

Have you ever browsed a GQ magazine and wondered how these guys can look so effortlessly good?

On the other hand, have you ever seen a Macy’s catalogue and FELT the department store look?

These men are wearing the SAME fabric, the SAME patterns and are under the SAME lighting.

There is no difference in the product.

EXCEPT ONE.

Take a closer look.

Do you notice how the jacket’s shoulders align perfectly with the model? Do you see a slight angle in the waist so that the suit hugs their stomach?

The Concept:

We want to bring affordable custom suiting to men everywhere. However, men don’t trust getting their measurements from just anybody.

To solve this problem we thought about turning our ecommerce store into brick and mortar, but that would mean increasing our costs to the traditional range of a custom suit maker ($1,000+).

Keeping it out of reach from the customers we want.

So instead we got creative. We decided to do something that’s never been done. We’re travelling to you.

We’re building the first mobile tailor truck equipped with a 3D Scanner that will allow us to make you the best dressed man in the room…

The 3D Scanner is not a gimmick prior to 2012 accuracy was to within 1-2 inches, but now our technology has a +/- range of 5mm. This works.

The body scan will be overlayed with a CAD design of your suit ensuring a fit like no other.
