Engelhorn adopts 3D Body Scanner for customized clothing

Engelhorn, a tailoring house steeped in tradition, takes a new approach to customized clothing: This well-known house of fashion now offers suits by Windsor and Odermark as well as shirts from van Laack–all with a perfect fit thanks to digital measurement

Kaiserslautern, 6th October 2004 – With Engelhorn, Human Solutions GmbH of Kaiserslautern has added yet another well-known tailoring company to its illustrious list of 3D Body Scanner users: anyone interested can now go along to Engelhorn in Mannheim city center and get digitally measured for a perfectly-fitting suit from Windsor or Odermark and an individually tailored shirt from van Laack - in all sizes. The technical integration of the retailer with the individual manufacturer takes place via the software solution RETAILOR.

Engelhorn has many years of experience with made-to-measure clothing. Based on the 3D Body Scanner and RETAILOR, the company has now developed a new line - engelhorn atelier. The taking of body measurements now lasts only a few seconds, giving the well-trained engelhorn staff more time to discuss fabrics and styles with the customer from the extensive range on offer and to cater to the customer’s individual needs and wants. Modern technology enables a smooth-running procedure involving the ascertainment and storing of customer wishes and the forwarding of the order to individual manufacturers. That's why Engelhorn sees engelhorn atelier as being part of the future of customized clothing production.


The Name Engelhorn has been inseparably linked with the city of Mannheim and the Rhein-Neckar-Region since the company was founded in 1890. Today this family-run company offers choice fashion and high quality sport articles with a sales area of over 30,000 square meters.

Sales areas include a Young Trendhouse, a Betty Barclay shop and a four-storey Boss department as well as exclusive underwear and stockings/socks departments. With over 8,000 square meters of sales area, "engelhorn sports" is among the largest sports houses in Germany. In the spring of 2002, Engelhorn opened another house for recreation clothing and accessories in Viernheim.
