John Lewis: Building blocks for durability

22nd June 2017

Working with WRAP, John Lewis identified an opportunity to improve fit consistency, and reduce sampling and product development lead times, for four core men‟s shirts. Bringing quality to life and encouraging sustainable living are core principles for John Lewis. The project aimed to facilitate 'right first time' sampling by creating a set of core blocks for four John Lewis bestselling men's shirts.

By developing core block patterns and refining accompanying Technical Packages, John Lewis encourages a right first time approach to sampling across its supply chain.
This brings greater efficiency, through reduced development lead times and improved fits, leading to greater customer satisfaction.
