QCut Kickstarter Campaign Offers a Better Way to Size Jeans
Anyone who’s ever left the house to shop for a new pair of jeans immediately knows the risk of potentially entering entering an environment that will leave you with nothing but missing hair and a migraine. Women’s jeans, unlike mens, are not consistent size-wise, and even if they were, what’s a girl to do if she’s between sizes? Add online shopping into the mix, and most would rather resort to wearing their PJs out than dealing with the pain. I’m happy to note that online shopping HAS gotten easier, with several jeans like Bluer and AYR offering free shipping and returns both ways to make finding your right size at least a little less painful. However, there’s still a waiting period involved, no matter how amazing a company’s customer service is, and few people care to make trips back and forth from the post office. Also, how many times have you found yourself smack dab in between two sizes? I have, and it can be quite frustrating. Enter QCut, a new brand offering something very new: Jeans that come in 400 sizes. Yup.
When the Kickstarter campaign is over on December 3rd, as long as QCut reaches their funding goal, the brand will send out fit surveys to everyone who pledged at least $10 towards their campaign. The survey will be used to develop their wide range of sizes, so the brand is asking women of all sizes and shapes to participate! The survey will begin with just five simple questions: your height, weight, shoe size, bra size, and the size of your favorite pair of jeans. Then, it will ask more specific questions, regarding your usual frustrations when you go to try on jeans. The funding goal is set at $75,000, however, QCut states “If we raise $500K, we have an investor committed to building a factory to make Qcut jeans. Having our own factory means we can control production and turn orders around in days instead of weeks.” I’m intrigued!
Every woman tells me: ‘I’m hard to fit.’ But there’s nothing wrong with you – the way clothes are sized today is fundamentally broken.”
This QCut campaign is over in less than a month, with $65,071 pledged as I write this towards their $75,000 goal, so go contribute asap if you are interested! This is sure to be an interesting one, in a very good way. Check it out here!
