Bespoke Tailoring Terminology Explained

The term bespoke is historically a descriptive term to speak for something, or “to give order for it to be made” with the implied meaning that the cloth has been spoken for or selected by the client for their tailor to use.

Bespoke tailoring these days is a misinterpreted term which high street stores and many other shops miss use to explain their service. A true bespoke tailoring experience is a very long process which includes several fittings over 2-5 months, the tailor that you would generally meet is involved in the entire process from measurement and cloth selection right the way through to constructing and finishing the garment themselves. As you can imagine this is a vastly expensive process and not particularly efficient if you require a garment quickly.

Here at Robert Old we have specialised in what we call Made-to-Measure for decades, others describe it as semi-Bespoke.  What does ‘made-to-measure’ mean simply put, we will use a stock size garment as a template to measure from, to which we are able to make changes to fit your shape. These measurements are then sent to the chosen tailoring house where they will produce your garment from scratch to your custom specifications.
