Remember that guy George Zimmer (NOT ZIMMERMAN) and his famous “you’ll like the way you look i guarantee it” line. Well he is back, sort of. After being terminated by the board of the Men’s Warehouse, a company he founded and turned into a multi-billion dollar haberdashery empire, he has a new startup. According to Engadget, the clothing tycoon has a new venture called zTailor.
Zimmer’s new project is called zTailor, a company allows customers to coordinate an in-home fitting. All you have to do is book the appointment and a clothing pro with no less than five years of altering experience will take your measurements and return the items in a week or less. What’s more, if the item still doesn’t fit, any further changes are done free of charge. The same applies if you coordinate through the aforementioned retailers, too. zTailor is available in more areas, though, as folks in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin. The plan is for the service to be available throughout the US before summer’s end.
What more can you expect from a guy that was kicked off the board of his own company (Batman & Wayne Enterprises, anyone?) and has personally guaranteed that millions of me would like the way they look ( I must agree, I do…). Macy’s and Bloomingdales have already agreed to sign on to the service.
PS. George Zimmer is a dopplegagger for the most interesting man in the world.
Great piece (except for the epileptic camera man, seriously watch) about a man and his daily uniform: black suit, white shirt, black tie, and scarf. I love how he he explains his style. Dr. West has swag.
Ever wanted to figure out how to stop your nice shirts from blousing and bunching up. You have three options, buy slim fit shirts, get your shirts tailored, or use the military tuck.This method is to take the excess fabric from the front and back of the shirt and hide it in the side-seams. Here a how to from agoodman.com.au
- Unbutton pants and place the base of your shirt neatly downward. Your shirt should not be scrunched into your pants as they’ll easily come untucked.
- Pinch the shirt at the side-seams and pull tight to collect the excess fabric.
- Fold this excess fabric backwards. You want both back and front of your shirt to sit flush against your body; no bunching (you haven’t pinched enough fabric) nor pulling (you’ve pinched too much fabric).
- Button your pants up, tightly securing the folds against your body.
- Adjust if necessary to neaten the shirt.
It helps to think of this method as placing your pants over your shirt, rather than tucking your shirt into your pants. Obviously, this technique only works for shirts that mostly fit, and just have some excess fabric in the body. If the shirt is a size (or more) too large, this method won’t work and it will need to be altered by a tailor to make it fit correctly. From A Goodman
