How we reduced costs and waste by 60% with our innovative Cut-to-Fit® design
Mak Cut-to-Fit® pants were designed by Troy McNally, current Director of Mak Wear, in 2008 when Reece Plumbing supplies asked Troy, back then a carpenter, to design a pair of pants to reduce warehouse requirements. Troy came up with the idea of creating a triple stitch line for three different leg lengths– Stout, Regular and Tall. The seam, is triple-locked stitched and is able to be cut just below the seam with scissors to fit the preferred leg length.
Triple stitching prevents the seam from fraying and continuing up the pant, providing a neat finished hem in only seconds.
As the Cut-to-Fit® pants are manufactured with three per-hemmed leg lengths, they allow companies and re-sellers to hold less stock, incur less wastage and manage uniforms more easily.
Mak has stock in around 50 stores across the country and over 300 stores through Reece's network. Mak possesses a moderate B2B base, with companies ranging from 3-300 employees and also supply to different councils through retailers.
