Custom orders that are rare in the world

At the moment, I think that what UTO is most appreciated around the world is our semi-custom-made manufacturing, in which we ``make it in your desired color and size.''

When it comes to "ready-made clothes" made from "woven" fabrics, there are few people who do not have them altered at all, and most people do some kind of alteration, such as "tightening the sleeve length" or "extending the waist". I think there are.

For example, in the case of ``cloth clothes.''
I think you can adjust the length of the sleeves by 1.2 cm, but in the case of a sweater, I think it can be covered by its characteristic stretch and contraction.

However, as you might expect, when a sweater becomes 4.5cm long, it makes a huge difference in both comfort and appearance. Sometimes I see people saying, ``I love this sweater,'' but wearing it with the sleeves folded back.

We want people who have given up because they can't have it altered because it's a knit to be able to wear a sweater that fits them perfectly, so we have our own factory and have been researching cashmere materials all year round, and have been searching for many years. After many years, "custom made cashmere knits" was finally realized.

Preciousness created for you

The only way to fit a sweater that cannot be altered perfectly is to make it one by one.

Back in 2002, we started taking semi-custom orders for cashmere, saying, ``We'll make it to the exact dimensions in the color you want.''

To lengthen the length of a straight garment from the bust to the hem, you just need to add the number of stitches, but UTO's inner type is gently tapered to the waist.

It widens a little from the waistline to the hem.
For this reason, even if you just increase the length, the slope from the waist to the hem will be different, so you will have to change the number of stitches.

Even the simplest thing, ``adjusting the length,'' involves a lot of work, so when changing the bust width, it also affects the shoulder width, sleeve width, armholes, and sleeve length, so I have to struggle with the instructions every time.

In the case of mass production, once a prototype is completed, hundreds of pieces are produced in production.
On the other hand, with UTO, we have to create a ``single finished product'' that is similar to the actual mass production every time, and each piece is a serious challenge.

In addition to size, we also make things like ``lengthening the collar of the turtle'' and ``lengthening the ribs on the hem and sleeves.''
We also accept requests to create your own original designs by changing the design by adding color to some areas.

At UTO, the best compliment we can receive is when a customer wears a sweater and says, ``It looks natural and doesn't look out of place.''

In the case of ``larger sizes,'' the amount of yarn used increases, so we charge a fee for the yarn, but we can do this time-consuming ``size adjustment'' for an additional fee of around 1,000 to 2,000 yen in a short period of time in a form similar to a service. I'm making it.

I think it would probably cost the same amount of money and time to ``alter clothes''.

With the desire to ``want more customers to wear comfortable cashmere knits'', UTO uses ``the same cashmere yarn for 20 years'' and continues to research this yarn and manufacturing throughout the year, so we use our years of experience and We use our technology to provide such services.

When we first started this "custom order" business, we received orders from customers at an order event at our store around April, but other manufacturers we worked with told us, "I can't believe they would do that with knitwear." We both laughed when we heard that they were so worried until the product was delivered at the beginning of autumn in August.
