What they do: MTailor brings the convenience of online shopping to custom tailored men’s shirts. MTailor allows customers to take their measurements with their phone’s camera, eliminating the need to go to a brick-and-mortar location. Customers can then customize their shirts and order without ever having left their home.
Why this is a big deal: MTailor not only saves customers the inconvenience of having to go somewhere to get a custom-tailored shirt, it has the potential to fundamentally change the way we shop. With plans to expand their service to include more articles of clothing, MTailor could become a leader in the future of shopping where customers can order entire custom-fitted wardrobes through their phone. And by removing the labor and overhead involved in brick and mortar businesses, anyone will be able to afford to dress sharply.
MTailor is a new kind of fashion company that enables customers to design and purchase premium, tailored shirts for just $69 each. That’s well below what one might expect if they went to a tailor to have a shirt fitted, and even less than some people will pay if they were to buy a dress shirt off the rack from a department store.
The shirt arrives three weeks after you've submitted your info, and as it turns out, the fit is uncannily accurate. If however there's a glitch, MTailor offers to remake your shirt right away, for free.
In about three weeks after doing the scan — which involves the kind of awkward procedure of wearing tight-fitting clothing and holding your arms up while spinning slowly in front of a camera — I received my first shirt.
It was awesome.
