Ever heard of the expression the clothes make the man? Well, there is some truth to that. Just consider these two examples: if you saw three men walking down the street in business attire, one wearing clothes that are obviously too big for him, and two wearing perfectly fitted clothes, who would you assume plays better attention to detail? Who looks more professional? Who commands more respect? Like it or not, we do make these assumptions about people, and what they wear.
One of the problems is that when men go shopping for clothes it can be hard for them to find clothes in their size. So entrepreneur Miles Penn decided to do what many entrepreneurs who observe a societal problem in the 21st century do: he created an app for that, called MTailor.
Penn created an algorithm in college (sound familiar?) that could measure any man more accurately than a human tailor. How does it work? First, you select your choices of fabric, collar, cuff, buttons, and other aspects of the shirt that you want to customize. Then, you use the camera on your smartphone to scan your body with the app. Based on the images, the app calculates your measurements in under 5 minutes. You pay for the shirt and it arrives at your home. No trying on clothes in a store nor waiting in long lines at the cashier. For men who don’t like shopping for clothes, MTailor must feel too good to be true, but it actually works.
For a while, commercials for MTailor could be seen on cable news networks in the U.S., advertising custom-made shirts, and Penn has also been on Shark Tank. If you’re the type of person who feels weird about purchasing clothes from an online retailer, MTailor’s precise craftsmanship will make you less weird. And you have a 2012 Stanford grad to thank for that.
In the 21st century, perfectly fitted shirts are delivered to your home,
