continueJust what does the word bespoke inside the "bespoke suit" term trulymean?It is a
meaning that the groups is and are striving as well as challenged by. To many chaps,The
bespoke element of a bespoke suit can mean many different things. It canrange from the
continued arguments - something being made in the Far EastVersus in the United Kingdom by
hand, to a battle between theorists about thenumber of hand stitches that go into every dinner
suit. Very respected craftsmenhave offered their thoughts before, suggesting the word bespoke
comes fromthe word bespoken (to be-speak your length).However, a {qualified|fair experienced|
tailor in offshore can be just as good as a artisanon Savile Row perhaps?. And what if the
craftsman on Savile Row acquired his skills in offshore?? Andthe artisan in japan is
British?English? As suprising as it may seem, it exists.Where does the topic about dinner suits
being made overseas conclude inthose circumstances?Similarly, there are craftsmen who insist
on a minimum of five, six or evenseven fittings for every double breasted suit they make. But what
if the customer doesn'tuse it? Surely the process is there to serve the gq magazine reader?, not
thetailor. Similarly, what if a tailoring house has only one house style as worn by Simon
Crompton....isthat really a bespoke suit or bespoke service for the customer? There aresome
talented tailors, but they may only offer one house style cut, albeitin any size and figuration you
may wish. But is that truly a bespoke suit?Cutting the cloth and who cuts the cloth is often the
crucible of manyArguments. And what if a machine cuts the cloth from measurements thecutter
has decided? A garment machine could maybe cut much more finelythan bespoke wedding suit
which are hand adapted. Hand cutting leaves lots of loose threadsand room for many complaints
from a customer, but some prefer it. So whynot let the buyer - with guidance - cut some of his
own cloth? Surely acustomer cutting his own coat would add a truly unique experience to
abespoke suit sitting?Additionally, but just as importantly, I strongly believe that a bespoke suitis
not just about providing a unique pattern and size to each and everycustomer. It is about
supplying a truly bespoke service. Is it"bespoke" when a customer is forced to meet a tailor
between a particular time slot,during the week and at just one location: the tailor's shop? Is it
atruly a british custom when a garment is being sent to a customer, that thecustomer cannot
choose the exact hour and even minute they wantit delivered? Should a uncle not have the
contact detailsof their tailor, so that if something does go unplanned - a split hem or aloose
thread - that the tailor can have it {fixed?patched|sewn|resewn|invisibily , in an instant for thatall
important meeting or wedding party?A truly bespoke suit or shirt can only so called, I believe,
when itis complemented by a truly bespoke service.Henry Herbert Tailors
