STYLE REVOLUTION

Y

ou follow fashion but style is individual. Style sets you apart from the crowd, it defines who you are

and what you represent. Style is personal and to be able to put your personal stamp on a garment is becoming increasingly important to your customers.

!

It started with NikeID and now almost every purchase you make can be personalised in some way. This demand is driven by your consumers and this means that it’s something you should consider.

!

As a result of this trend, the tailoring industry is seeing a revival, almost all of the menswear chains are now offering a tailoring solution. Some retailers are being successful, others are not, and when you get it wrong the negative impact on your brand can be significant.

!

The Garmtec Made To Order (MTO) solution is different from all of the others. It has taken two years to develop and has involved three critical partners working in collaboration; a menswear store, a tailoring company and a manufacturer. It is this collaboration that makes the Garmtec MTO solution the best in the menswear market.

! We want you to be part of this collaboration, so join the tailoring revolution with Garmtec MTO. ! ! !

IT TAKES!

THREE! TO TANGO M

any solutions implemented by menswear stores have failed. They have been too

complicated to implement, taken too long to make, cost too much money to buy and not been supported by an adequate infrastructure.

!

Garmtec MTO has overcome these short comings by pulling together a unique team in order to build a tailoring solution from the menswear store up. This is what sets our solution apart, this is what makes our solution tailored to menswear stores.

‘LUXURY! CLOTH MAKETH!

THE SUIT’ I

L

everaging the purchasing power of Bernhardt has

enabled Garmtec to select some of the world’s finest cloths at low prices.

! There are two MTO bunches: !

The core collection is a selection of 60 cloths by the outstanding Italian manufacturer REDA. REDA cloth is renowned for its luxury handle and popular styles.

!

It ranges in weight between 9oz and 10oz giving your customers ample choice for garments all year round. The styles cover a multitude of patterns including, plain, pinstripe, birdseye, houndstooth, prince of wales check and tweed. There are two grades of cloth which indicate different prices.

!

10 - MTO ROCKS

The second MTO collection is an exclusive selection of cloths from the world famous bunches of Holland & Sherry, Savile Row. Having all of these bunches condensed into one exclusive MTO collection gives you a unique selling point with your customers.

!

The Holland & Sherry MTO bunch consists of the very best 9oz, 10oz, 12oz, and Tweeds from collections such as The InterCity, Cape Horne and Ascot .

!

There are three price categories enabling your customers to make quick and easy choices based upon price if need be.

!

All of our cloth bunches are held in the factory which is why your garment will be in production just 24hrs after order, and delivered to you just 3 weeks later.

MASTER OF T

he Master Models are the basis of our solution.

They represent a cut and size that our advanced laser cutting machines can replicate with the highest accuracy.

!

They enable your customers to mix and match sizes to get the best starting point for their suit or jacket.

!

They also allow them to feel the handle and weight of the cloth first hand.

!

Each of our master models is made in a different style. They cover single and double breasted suits, peak lapels, a whole multitude of pockets including patch and angle, and even waistcoats.

!

This reinforces the need for your customers to visualise the made up garment and not just a swatch. It’s very common for customers to actually choose the cloth that the Master Model garment is made from after trying it on.

!

You can purchase master model collections as a six, eight or ten set, depending on how broad you believe your customer base to be.

!

The Master Models are sold at an introductory, discounted price, to support you right from the very start of our partnership.

O

n March 2nd 2014, Glenn Freemantle stepped

up to the stage to collect an Oscar wearing a Garmtec MTO suit designed by Purple Menswear.

! Paul, from purple explains how it all came about. !

“Glenn has been a customer of Purple Menswear for many years so when he came into my shop asking if we could design him a suit for the Oscars we jumped at the opportunity. The trouble was we only had 3 weeks to do it in!

!

Glenn chose the blue REDA cloth for his DJ because he wanted to stand slightly out from the crowd. He also wanted a double breasted jacket cut short on the length.

!

The jacket buttons were covered in black satin to match the lapels.

!

The trousers were tapered to a 17cm cuff giving the whole suit a very fitted feel.

!

When we see the photos it makes us enormously proud to think that we made it for him�
