House of KONEN now also offering customized clothing at mass-produced prices

Made-to-measure at off-the-peg prices. Perfect fit through measurement by 3D body scanner - by Human Solutions GmbH.

Kaiserslautern, 18th May 2006 – Human Solutions GmbH of Kaiserslautern has succeeded in winning over yet another well-known fashion house to the 3D body scanner and RETAILOR family - as of April 2006, KONEN of Munich will be offering mass-produced customized clothing for men. The process - a 3D body scanner takes customers measurements digitally. During the sales talk, the customer guidance program RETAILOR supports the professional sales person and also helps the customer with his decisions – from basic questions like which cloth or cut, to details like the choice of buttons. All data is transmitted online to the manufacturer – in this case Odermark. The result? Perfectly-fitting suits at off-the-peg prices!

Mass production of customized clothing and the 3D body scanner

The approach has already proved itself in numerous stores in Germany and Switzerland: the person who wants perfectly-fitting clothes, but doesn't want to pay the high prices tailored clothing normally entails, can get measured in a contact-free procedure by a 3D scanner in a special booth. The whole procedure lasts only a few seconds and is of course completely safe. The software then calculates all body dimensions from the acquired data and creates a digital twin on the monitor. With the support of the trained sales person, the customer can then compile his individual suit, specifying cut, fabric, style and other details. Immediately after customer guidance, all order data is transmitted to the stipulated maker - and manufacture begins. In just a few weeks, the purchaser receives a perfectly-fitting item of clothing, at a price normally associated with ready-made apparel. The data acquired is archived and is thus available for later purchases.

This apparel solution, consisting of a 3D body scanner and RETAILOR software, was developed by the Human Solutions Company of Kaiserslautern, Germany.

The system is already being successfully used by well-known retailers all over Germany.
