Professional Fitter: Job of the Future

I'm pretty sure that the future of fashion has custom-tailored clothes sold on a mass level in store for it.

So, what does that mean? To participate in this not yet invented market, you're going to need precise and detailed measurements of your frame. I see a universal scale being created with maybe 30-35 body measurements. And if you have that information, you'll be able to order custom-fit clothes from any customer clothing manufacturer who offers it.

So, we're going to need an industry of professional fitters. Charge $50 for a 1/2 hour session and that person will be instantly ready to buy custom-fit clothes with confidence.

Plus, every time the customer gets fatter, they'll need to come in for a re-fit. This can't miss.

sure can...different fits for the general public would be more cost effective for the consumer, i.e. athletic fit with certain measurements and the same shirt in sedentary fit with extra room for the stomach.

Just buy the other type of fit that is Close Enough to a good fit and the problem of weight fluctuations would be minimal

NO! That's too close to what we already have. The whole point is an absolutely perfect fit.

Why do you assume everyone in the future wants form-fitting clothes? Or for all their clothes to fit exactly the same? Or pay to have all their clothes custom fitted? Is it fit? fitted? fat? I'm confused. Besides, we all know everyone in the future wears matching shiny silver unitards w/ shoulder pads and moon boots. Be the guy who designs those and you've got yourself a business. Although I would be interested in this "Sendentery Fit" line Sean proposes...

wouldn't you want clothes designed exactly for you? Just like Ryan Seacrest gets his suits tailored. That could be your everyday attire?

Well now that you mention Ryan Seacrest. Haha. It would be cool but no clothing comapny would pay to manufacture 30-35 sizes of every style they make.

don't forget. this is a job of the future. They're not making all of the possibilities. They're making them to order, on demand. Once it gets down to double the price of current clothes, I think it'll stick.
