We've traveled the country in our Tailor Truck w/ 3D Scanner. Now we're using those body scans to create shirts that fit. Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 10, 2014.
About this project
The Close to Custom Shirt is...
1 - Inspired by Custom Shirts we use the Finest Materials. We’ve combined elements that come only on made-to-measure shirting: mother of pearl buttons, heavy interlining in the collars so they don’t droop after dry cleaning, back darts, and reinforced stitching. We use the best fabric as well: Premium Pima Cotton usually found on $250 shirts.
2 - Patent Pending Non-Graded Patterns! We used thousands of our Scans to create 9 non-graded patterns. Along with our 3D overlay technology we were able to create algorithmically analyzed patterns that are unique to the industry.
3 - Guaranteed to Fit. We're confident your shirt will fit. So confident in fact that if for any reason it doesn't: We'll replace it with a custom shirt at the same price.
What if I told you there was one secret to dressing well?
Nobody talks about it. You’re just supposed to know.
And by the way, this one thing will improve the way you look by 350%
What is it?
That’s it. Just Fit. Not style, not pairing well, Just Fit.
Don’t believe us? Let’s let the evidence speak for itself.
We had two guys set up OKCupid profiles. Each with a picture of him in a fitted garment and another picture in an off the rack suit.
We then let the profiles sit. For four months we waited.
What happened? Let’s let the results speak for themselves.
Over 4 Months, the pictures in the fitted garment received 3.5 times the amount of unsolicited messages as the normal pictures.
We’re on a mission to get every man that extra 350% boost.
The Perfect Shirt
Companies know that fit is important. But everyone's taken the easy way out. They take an initial pattern based on one person - called a "fit model".
They then increase the size 1 - 2" in each direction in a process called "grading"
This is wrong.
We’ve traveled across the country in our Tailor Truck with its 3D Scanner. From LA to NYC and everywhere in between we’ve scanned and fitted guys from every walk of life.
Now with that data, we’re preparing to give everyone that Perfect Fit. We’ve used thousands of scans to create the perfect shirts in sizes that are meant to fit and make you look great.
After analyzing millions of data points we’ve created 9 fits based on height, waist size, and chest measurements.
We’ve built our shirt for the hardest fits. Slim Cuts, Athletic Bodies and Husky all in 3 variations: Long Torso, Average Torso and Short Torso.
Our non-graded patterns ensure a better fit for your body type and torso length. Don't worry about wearing muffin top shirts again!
Our initial run of shirts will come in six colors. Red Gingham, Lumberjack Checked, Nantucket Blue, Alaskan Frost, Navy Gingham and Milan Blush.

Risks and challenges
This isn't our first time, not even our second. We've started a Kickstarter three times and have a proven track record.
From suits that fit to the Tailor Truck which makes it ridiculously easy to become the Best Dressed Man in the Room we know we can execute.
Producing anything, let alone your first product, poses a number of problems. Still, we were able to finish and ship to all of our customers.
