The difference between bespoke and made-to-measure
The term bespoke in a literal translation means “to speak for something”. Our bespoke-tailoring involves the following services:
Take a wide variety of your measurements and construct a personal pattern;
Choose the type of fabric, style and detail of the garment together with insights from our tailor;
Hand-sewn, custom-made to your requirements.
In order to create a properly fitted bespoke-suit, there needs to be a minimum of three fittings. After the suit is cut to your specific measurements, the next step is the try-on. The try-on stage is to guarantee that the measurements taken will suit the client’s body structure. If all goes well, there will be a final fitting to ensure the fit and drape ability meets the client’s needs.
Made-to-Measure is less detailed than a bespoke suit and has its limitations. Unlike a custom made suit the patterns are already cut. Depending on the measurements taken the pattern pieces are either increased or decreased to fit the body that’s being worked on. In a made to measure, only two fittings are required, and the process is much faster.
