Buying team wear and sportswear online can be a challenge. The fit isn't always right or the colour isn't what was expected. Further to these pains, depending on how reputable the seller is, can determine whether it's worth it or not to return or exchange the product.
Now imagine that same process, ordering team wear and sportswear online for twenty to thirty different people. For examples sake it could be a team of athletes or a department at work. Instead of worrying about one jacket that fits, now there are twenty or thirty sizes that need to fit. The fit of these jackets come with opinions that will either show appreciation for the effort made or give off a disgruntled vibe since each person paid $150 for a jacket that fits poorly.
In the apparel industry, when garments are customized with embroidery, screen print or other decoration styles, items are non refundable.
As simple as it gets, getting the sizes and styles right the first time counts. It saves time and money. Which brings back the question: How to fit your team wear and sportswear online?
The first step is to choose a single brand. This is critical as it allows a minimal investment. Once a brand has been decided upon, search through products and find several different cuts. Choose several styles (2-3) the team or group of people like. After these styles are agreed upon, select a few colour options (black and navy blue are always classy picks). Once the essentials are picked out, all that is left is to determine how the sample order will be placed in accordance to size and colours.
In summary, this is what is pending:
Jacket Style 1
- Size: Small
- Colour: Black
Jacket Style 2
- Size: Medium
- Colour: Blue
Jacket Style 3
- Size: Large
- Colour: Red
Jacket Style 4
- Size: X-Large
- Colour: Brown
Create a small sample order like the example above. Order the team wear and sportswear online and once the small order is delivered, allow everyone to try on a jacket to determine a size and choose the most suitable style and colour for the group. Splitting up the order like this allows an entity to see several different style cuts, ultimately making a decision they will be extremely happy with.
