Headquartered in New York, Hemster is the first on-demand tailoring service that helps people find the perfect fit when and where they want. The company's network of master fitters and stylists offer a range of alterations services that consumers can access in participating retailers' and brands' stores or through at-home appointments. Each Hemster customer's perfect fit data are collected the first time the customer uses the service and kept on file, so the customer can conveniently shop at any participating retailer or brand and not have to take new measurements each time they purchase a garment.
Hemster enables retailers and brands to offer customers tailoring services in-store, driving conversion and traffic at both the initial fitting and 48 hours later, when the garment is ready for pickup. The company's network of tailors each specialize in certain kinds of garments and alterations, making them four to five times more productive than is typical in the industry. Customers shopping online at participating retailers and brands can also schedule a personal in-home fitting with a Hemster tailor or use the company's patent-pending RulerSticker to mark garments they have purchased and then either drop them off in-store for tailoring or have them picked up from their home.
With teams currently in NYC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, Hemster is rapidly expanding nationwide and launching in many new cities in 2020!
