Ever had bad experience with your tailor? Either the guy got too handsy when it came to measuring your inseam, or the result just wasn't worth the custom-made price tag. Well, why not cut the middle man?
Menswear startup MTailor recently launched an app that uses the camera of your tablet or smartphone (compatible with iOS and Android) to take your measurements. Sounds weird? We had our doubts too, until we tried. After placing your device on the ground, the app instructs you to step back, place your body in a "winner" pose (see the pictures below), and do a 360 rotation.
The MTailor app captures what appears on the screen and compares the images with your height and weight, which you've entered manually (so no cheating!). Then, you get to pick the fabric you like, and add customizable features, such as buttons on the collar, or a monograph of your initials on the sleeve.
According to MTailor, the app is scientifically proven to be 20% more accurate than a professional tailor, with shirts starting at an affordable $69. 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.
