Today within the fashion world, the terms “bespoke” and “made-to-measure” seem to be interchangeably. But unfortunately, those whom present the terms ”bespoke” and “made-to-measure” in such a matter are mistaken. Why?
First, in order to have a better idea of what these terms mean, we have to go back in history. The term “Bespoke” actually dates back to the 17th century. Tailors then held full lengths of cloth within their premises and a customer would come in and chose a length of fabric material for garments, it was then said to have “been spoken for”.
So, a tailor who makes custom clothes individually, to your specific personal measurements, design requirements and creates a custom one-of pattern for that garment is called “bespoke”.
At NELSON WADE, the start to the completion of our bespoke mens 2 piece custom suit, takes on average between 40-60 hours to be create by hand.
How is this different from “Made to Measure”?
The term “made-to-measure”, refers simply to the use of basic, pre-existing template patterns, and then taking the template pattern adjusting to the measurements that have been taken from you.
At NELSON WADE, we only use the age old method of “bespoke” tailoring for each custom suit, shirt, necktie, skirt and collar blouse for our clients.
