Finding the perfect fit is not easy, even if you’re a standard size. But if you’re slightly out of the “norm” it gets even harder. And that shouldn’t be the case. Edition One’s mission is to make everybody feel their very best, with clothing that truly fits, whether you’re close to a “standard” size or not. To tackle this challenge, the brand's founders worked with data scientists specialising in 3D body scans and developed a fit finder that is based on a simple 30 second survey. The result is called Alfred, a robot tailor who gives accurate custom size predictions, with over 87% of customers so far not needing any size adjustments on their first orders. They offer a 100% fit guarantee, so there’s no risk and your custom-made shirt is delivered to your doorstep within 2-3 weeks.
