Richard Barnes, as quoted in director-e:
"The apparel industry has traditionally relied on manual measurement as a benchmark for tailoring and fit. It is now changing, though, as technology influences the production, design and fit requirments of retailers, often driven by the insatiable need of customers to have the right 'fit'.
The most significant development in sizing and fit in recent years has been the use of 3D technology".
