Made to Measure Jeans



Nomo Jeans Corporation, Helsinki, Finland


Finding good jeans is difficult - especially for women. A recent study shows that the average woman tries more than 10 pairs before finding a suitable one (if they find it at all). Manufacturer-mandated standard measures fit fewer and fewer people and cause increasing dissatisfaction. This problem is shared by the most people, not simply people who are larger than normal - the frustration is felt by the skinny, the petite, the short, the tall, the round, nearly everybody. We are simply not 31/32 regular.
The key to make made-to-measure jeans is the alteration system according to the body shape. We have developed a system which takes into account the body shape.
Our development system is fully automated - client 3D body scanning information and preferences are combined our inner system which creates patterns and production orders for our factories.
The NOMO experience starts with a fast and discrete 3D body scanning process in NOMO stores. The results are turned into exact personal measurements that are used to alter the pattern of the selected NOMO Jeans style for perfect custom fit. Customers can also customize the look of the jeans to fit personal taste and intended use. The customized pattern will be sent to automated cutting and bundling in the factory. The finished products will be shipped back to the shops in small weekly batches.
Customer measurements and details are stored in a customer profile that can then be used for reorders via the NOMO web store or even by call. Our web store has a special customer feature that automatically ensures perfect fit with reorder.
