Apparel designers come to Clothier Design Source with a plan to create a new line of clothing for a specialized market. We assist them with all of the development necessary to take their product from concept to goods ready for the marketplace. Design, pattern engineering, technical specifications, prototyping, fit specialization, production and quality control are all services CDS provides.
Clothier Design Source specializes in the development and manufacturing of high-stretch performance and technical wear. We have the pleasure of working with some great cycling apparel retailers to engineer a series of exciting products. Summer is an especially busy time for bicycle wear development.
A client of CDS, recently hosted a “fitting party” for his custom made cycling jerseys. Mindy, our Director of Development, led the fit session while analyzing the fit of each garment. Noting areas of adjustment to ensure a performance custom fit.
The fit models (and serious cycling enthusiasts) pedaled a top a stationary bike while Mindy took note of areas in need of adjustment. It was enlightening to learn the riders preferences and hear their feedback.
Mindy notes feedback from the rider. Jersey height, shoulder width, sleeve length, wrist circumference and pocket height are all considered.
