zTailors - Uber for Tailors?

zTailors - Uber for Tailors?

 

Ousted from Men’s Wearhouse, George Zimmer still wants customer to “like the way he or she looks” — however this time, with a smartphone application.

Lately, Mr. Zimmer has been refashioning himself as a technology entrepreneur.He created zTailors, a website and app that connects customers and their troubled wardrobes with tailors who are available.

“It’s Uber for tailors,” - Mr. Zimmer, 66, said in an interview to The New York Times.

The concept is simple - app and the website allow customers to schedule a tailor to come home or to office, where they will measure and refit suits, shirts, jackets and dresses for a set price. Fixed items are then returned back in a few days.

Moreover, there is no obvious rival, which is currently on the market. As an example, a company called Combat Gent introduced a similar concept called Haberdash last year. But Haberdash failed to gain traction and was shut down.

How they make money? ZTailors takes a 35 percent fee from each purchase. Though that is steep, the company says that tailors will find it worthwhile given the higher volume.

What is a slogan to rival the Men’s Wearhouse signature tagline?

 “You’re going to like the way you look — I guarantee it,” Mr. Zimmer demurred.

And...That's It!
