Calvin Klein Jeans & Tukatech develop custom-made fit forms

Tukatech Inc and Calvin Klein Jeans have completed the development phase of creating custom TUKAforms (fit forms) to streamline Calvin Klein's international product development. CK Jeans and Chaps will initially be using the men's, women's, and plus-sized TUKAforms in New York and Hong Kong and will require all their international vendors to implement them in the near future.

Central to its brand identity and style, Calvin Klein Jeans requires tight quality control in maintaining their well known fit across their development chain. The world renowned NY based contemporary label chose LA-based Tukatech to develop custom fit forms. “Maintaining our fit across our global supply chain is crucial to reducing our cost and maintaining our fit standards” said Anna-Nee Wong, V.P. of Technical Apparel Design for CKJ.

“We chose TUKAforms for their life-like skin, body, bone and muscle replication. Their fit forms are so life like, and presents a viable tool for our vendors to review fits before sending to the USA. Consequently, our initial ROI studies show an estimated savings of more than half a million dollars in the first year,” she added. Anna-Nee, along with Director of Technical Design for Chaps Men's, Michael Meritet and CKJ Men's Technical Manager, Richard Garrison, spent last week at Tukatech headquarters in Los Angeles working side-by-side with Tukatech, sculpting an ideal size and shape to match their fit models measurements.

“Investing in TUKAforms not only streamlines the development process, but drastically reduces apparel product development cost. In a time of an economic downturn, CK Jeans realized that investing in these technologies, rather than shying from them, can produce immediate and tangible savings in product development” commented Emilio Divona, Tukatech's V.P. of the TUKAforms Division. Calvin Klein took the unique approach of customizing a standard form to their exact specifications rather than using a body scan of their fit model, finding even more freedom in perfecting their fit.

TUKAforms, a line of life-like fit model replicas, are available from Tukatech in a variety of sizes and shapes. Commonly used throughout the industry to perform fit verification across the global supply chain, they are designed to offer all the benefits of a live human fit model with the convenience and savings of traditional fit forms. In addition to TUKAforms, Tukatech offers a variety of custom solutions and software for the entire apparel development process.

Calvin Klein Jeans, created in 1978, is a world-famous division of Calvin Klein Ltd., a company founded by Calvin Klein himself in 1968.
