The global men's fashion supply chain is driven by large brands which dictate styles, materials and prices. Traditional contract manufacturing for these brands operates under price-based competition. In order to break out of this dead end, Richmart, the most modern made-to-measure men's suits factory in Eastern Europe, decided to reconfigure its entire supply chain. The managers undertook a detailed Thinking Process analysis of the supply chain, based on the principles of the Theory of Constraints and decided to move towards a win-win partnership between all parties involved from the wool through fabric, machinery and equipment to sewing factories and fashion consultants to the consumer. The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.
The 2017 TOCICO International Conference will be held July 16th - 19th in Berlin, Germany. TOCICO Conferences are held each year to showcase the new developments of TOC applications. This year features applications including Texas State Government Management, Microsoft supply chain, Japanese ship building, solving the real estate crisis, Adobe software development, movie production, communication skills with autistic children, Nine TOC How-To full and 1/2 day workshops, and over 60 more sessions.
Suitsupply presented its Spring-Summer 2017 collection earlier this month in the USA during the New York Fashion Week: Men's. Pieces were inspired by Bauhaus approach to design - practical and minimalist.
In clothing retail, the battle of the supply chains is underway. In response to consumer trends, products can now reach the high street in record time and at bargain prices, all thanks to supply chains custom designed to support a high-volume, more flexible model.
The Made To Order system will help fashion industry to get out of the crisis and will restore many work positions in European factories.
Suitsupply is a men's fashion label, founded in Amsterdam by Fokke de Jong in 2000. It has 44 locations opened all over the world - from its home base in Amsterdam to London, New York and Chicago. Its last object was officially opened on April 25, 2013 in Philadelphia. It's placed at the 4,300-square-foot corner spot on 16th and Locust that was once a historic hotel. The slick two-story boutique has been revamped with shiny modern accents - like bright-red display tables, eye-popping graphic displays and illuminated built-in shelves that look like something out of an episode of The Jetsons.
