Amazon has forever changed how people shop online. Not that long ago, we were OK waiting until we had enough items for free shipping and then waiting a week for the order to show up. Now anything longer than a couple days seems like forever.
Amazon still hopes to change how the grocery store works. In Newark Airport I saw that several of the CIBO stores now use Amazon technology for people to just walk out with the items they want (including a full line of kosher sandwiches) without having to checkout.
And now Amazon has launched their “made for you” program that hopes to revolutionize how you buy clothes online.
But you’ll need to share personal information and pictures to make it work.
For now, Amazon is only selling “made for you” T-Shirts, but they plan on expanding to more lines of clothing. I’m sure prices will also fall if this concept takes off.
To order a custom fit t-shirt, you’ll need to download the Amazon app. You’ll have to share your gender, weight and height and then take 2 pictures in the app while wearing form fitting clothes.
Amazon then makes a model based on that and they delete the uploaded pictures. You can spin the model around to see what the clothes will look like on your model.
You can then choose options like material, shirt length, shirt fit, neckline, sleeve length, and label name. You can see how each option will look like on you by spinning the model 360 degrees.
After you have a model made on the app you can make future purchases and customize options on your desktop.
As these shirts are made to order, shipping times are longer than normal for stocked items.
Don’t love the shirt? There’s free shipping and free return shipping.
What clothing items do you hope Amazon made for you will make in the future?
