Apparel Size and Fit – A Definitive Guide
ASBCI launches new definitive guide on apparel size and fit.

By Laura Turner

22 July 2015

The Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI) has launched a new technical handbook entitled Apparel Size and Fit – A Definitive Guide, which is a collaboration of international industry experts.
 
Apparel size and fit has long been a major source of frustration for manufacturers and customers, resulting in wasted time and money for all concerned. This latest handbook produced by the ASBCI is designed to provide a “bible” for all involved in apparel design, product development, retail, quality, sourcing, merchandising and marketing.  
 
Covering key technical topics relating to the fashion industry, each handbook serves as an essential introduction and guide to best practice. Subject matter covered includes, “What does size mean to the customer?” “Anthropometrics and size surveys”, “Size systems and labels”, “Pattern design and grading”, “Fitting and quality control” and “Made to measure and mass customisation”. 
 
“This is a reflection of the collective knowledge of many leaders in the field of garment sizing and fit, and the associated technologies,” says ASBCI chairman Dr Alistair Knox. “It is a long-overdue source of information to support the various conferences and exhibitions the ASBCI has hosted in recent years. I would like to thank all the contributors, who have given their valuable time to help in producing this pioneering publication.”
