Ready to shake up the way men buy shirts, and help every customer to find the perfect fit for his body type, whatever that is, Edition One is moving away from all standard methods.

Taking into consideration how e-commerce has changed the dynamics of the traditional physical retail model with high upfront costs, the complexity of online operations as well as fit finding is one of the biggest unsolved problems, Edition One is thinking one step further and, as a result, has turned their supply chain upside down. Edition One has built a streamlined on-demand supply chain that allows it to manufacture single pieces of clothing and deliver them to the customer in around two weeks. The secret lies in technology-enabled and a highly automated process; within mere hours of an order being placed through the brand's web shop, a digital garment pattern is created, and the fabric is laser cut accordingly at the factory.
