- Fit is one of the important aspects to consider in wearing any model of clothes. It often brings customers with problems about choosing men’s clothes, especially in choosing formal clothes. The purpose of this study is to know the fitting factors in Komarudin’s Pattern focusing in shirt patterns. The fitting points used in this study include the measurements of (1) the neck, (2) the shoulders, (3) the back width, (4) the chest, (5) the waist, and (6) the arm lenght. This study is qualitative research using the descriptive approach through interviews and observations. It involved three experts in pattern making and fashion practitioners to hold a focus group discussion (FGD). Besides, three models participated in it to try the shirt made in Komarudin’s pattern. The results of this study showed that the neck, the first fitting point, is unfit to be worn by all of the models because in Komarudin’s pattern the collar is made so small that the models felt uncomfortable to wear it. The FGD came up with the corroborating evidence that the neck brackets in Komarudin’s pattern are too small. As for other fitting points, the results showed that all of the other fitting points are fit to wear, which means posing no problem. Based on the results, it can be concluded that the Komarudin’s pattern is in need of being combined with other patterns, especially in fitting points of the neck and the collar.
