Encyclopedia > Bespoke

Bespoke is a usually British English term for clothing made at a customer's behest, and exactly to the customer's specification. Bespoke clothing is created without use of a pre-existing pattern; rather, the tailor makes the pattern based on the customer's body. This separates bespoke from "made to measure" clothing, which is made using a base pattern that is modified to the customer's body. British English (BrE) is a term used (especially by Americans) to differentiate between the form of the English language used in the United Kingdom and those used elsewhere. ...


"Ready to wear" clothing is made to a uniform pattern, without variation.


"Bespoke" comes from the word bespeak, meaning to ask for or order something.


Can refer to:

  • clothing
  • elements of interior design (i.e. closets) or even
  • software, which means it is software written in-house, designed specifically and customised for a particular company and task.
  • customisation of a particular product or service (i.e. envelopes)
