PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In conjunction with the celebration of its six-month anniversary since the completion of a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, Bluer Denim announces the official launch of its free Home Try-On service – the first of its kind in the denim industry.
Going live today, Home Try-On will enable Bluer customers to choose up to three pairs of jeans in any wash, size, or style, and have them delivered to their home to try for free. Customers are granted seven days from product receipt to make a purchase decision, and payment is only required for the product they choose to keep. Once the customer decides which product they choose to return, they simply send the unwanted product back to Bluer in the prepaid shipping box. No money is charged to the customer's card unless a purchase is made or if the customer fails to return the product following a 21-day grace period. Shipping costs, both to the customer and back to Bluer, are completely free.
Bluer Home Try-On is available for all women's and men's denim jeans and jackets. The company believes that many men are averse to shopping for jeans. Men often say they are uncomfortable trying on jeans in a store environment, or trying to make a decision without their significant other. Women surveyed by the company's research indicate that they would love benefit of trying on the jeans in the comfort of their home, with their own shoes, tops and accessories so as to make sure the jeans fit perfectly and compliment their existing wardrobe. Bluer's Home Try-One experience aims to eliminate the hassle and risk of buying jeans, and changes the process of jean shopping from an often-stressful endeavor to a stress-free and potentially entertaining experience.
"Home Try-On, or HTO as we call it, is a revolutionary step forward for the denim consumer; many shoppers are put off by a crowded store environment and the stress and pressure to make an immediate decision. Shoppers like to have a trusted second opinion from a friend, husband, wife or partner who will validate their choice- now with Bluer's HTO service, shoppers can and will take their time, feel 100% confident that they have made the right decision with their purchase and only be charged for the products they choose to keep". Jeffrey Todd Shafer, Bluer Denim's Founder.
Bluer Denim launched in June of last year on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. Bluer has already established itself as a true premium, direct-to-consumer denim brand, that's 100% transparently sourced and made in the United States using environmentally conscious production practices. Bluer also has a Buy-One, Give-One philanthropic initiative in which customers are encouraged to donate a pair of their used jeans for a credit towards their next purchase. Customer-sourced jeans are subsequently sanitized and re-purposed to people in need. The addition of the Home-Try On service cements Bluer as one of the most innovative, consumers-focused and ethically minded consumer brands in the world.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
