bestfit4you: Shopfinder & More

Human Solutions has been operating this website since the 12th of July this year. The site's focal point is a Shopfinder, which shows the way to the nearest retailer. The database behind this search function is maintained by Human Solutions; all fashion houses and stores that use the Human Solutions customized clothing solution are included. Retailers can also expand their company portraits free of charge – e.g. with details of current sales drives, information about the main focus of particular ranges and new picture material, etc.

“Customized clothing depicts self-assurance, exclusiveness and expression of one's personal style", says Wohrl's Mr. Ott. "Our fashion consultants make use of cutting-edge technology to achieve a wholly traditional objective - achieving the realization of the customer's wishes."


Rudolf Wöhrl founded his first business for menswear and boys' wear in Nürnberg in 1933. Today the Wöhrl Group has 2,500 permanent employees and annual sales generated by its 40 houses are around 399 million dollars (207 million British pounds). Project WöhrlCity, aimed at significantly expanding and enhancing the company's presence in Nürnberg, will be completed by the end of 2004. The company is still family-owned.
