The gold standard for algorithmically predicting body measurements
TRUSTED BY TAILORS WORLDWIDE
A BETTER CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE ONLINE
Buying custom clothing in-person can be a truly magical experience. Online, it’s a whole different story, and nothing takes the magic out of the experience more than waiting for a measuring tape to arrive in the mail.
THE PROBLEM WITH MEASURING AT HOME
The old way of selling custom clothing online required customers to measure themselves (or have a partner do it), often following a video or image-based tutorial. The problem is, these measurements came out too inaccurate to product good results.
LOOKUP TABLES DIDN’T CUT IT
Starting in the mid-2000’s, online custom clothiers started hiring software developers to build algorithms using public databases of body measurements. Unfortunately these static tables provided very low accuracy and never scaled to become a viable solution.
ENTER MACHINE LEARNING
Machine Learning allows algorithms to improve over time. Bold Metrics was the first company to begin training algorithms to predict body measurements specifically for custom clothiers. Over the last six-years we have become the gold standard in algorithmic body measurement prediction.
ADD TO YOUR SITE IN LESS THAN A DAY
By leveraging our robust, Enterprise-grade Virtual Tailor API, custom clothiers can now access the same technology used by Fortune 500 companies. We’ve made the setup process painless, often taking a developer less than a day to add to your existing site.
What our customers are saying
“Fit is extremely important to our customers, so when we launched our new rental website we wanted to provide our customers with a best-in-class, easy suit and tuxedo fitting experience. Leveraging the Bold Metrics machine learning technology, we turned data into action and algorithms into accurate recommendations, so our customers get a great fit. ”
—Kelly Helthall, VP Digital & Analytics
“Fashion Metric has completely changed our business and allowed us to become a national brand overnight. They solved a major challenge. ”
—Bert Emanuel, Founder & CEO
“If you have to go into the store and get a scan or get fitted, it can take a lot of energy, so inputting what you know about your size and creating a 3D body model is the easiest experience for a consumer. ”
—Ryan Leahy, Co-founder & CEO
“With the help of Fashion Metric, we have virtually eliminated fit as a reason that users may not convert. ”
—Cali Brutz, Co-founder & CEO
“I just want to say that I’m so incredibly impressed with Bold Metrics. We’ve done more suit testing with custom measurements using Fashion Metric, and they fit fantastically. We tested 3 body types (2 of them being in the 300lbs range) and both have said it’s the best fitting suit they’ve had. ”
—Keren Kang, Co-founder & CEO
“We met Bold Metric 2.5 years ago at SXSW and since then it’s been a fantastic voyage. They are the most reliable and responsive technical vendor we’ve worked without date. The body metric prediction software is extremely accurate and brings so much value to our clients. ”
—Leon Wu, Founder
“I looked at every self measuring tool on the market before settling on Bold Metrics. Sometimes simpler is better and from a user experience perspective it can’t be beaten. Not only is it more accurate than smartphone apps; we were able to customize it to our unique product line and serve customers around the world. ”
—Andrew Parkes, Founder
