Bespoke tailors (as well as shirtmakers, tiemakers, and shoemakers) are all encouraged to introduce themselves to the potential clients who frequent the Bespeaker's Forum. However, to avoid a rush of advertisers placing links to their commercial websites, please note the following guidelines:
1. Tell us who you are. Introduce yourself and your philosophy courteously (please avoid pushy salesmanship)
2. Make clear your business model eg bespoke, made to order*
3. Make clear your place of manufacture
4. Show us your workmanship. Just stating "buy from us we are the best" is not enough - we want to be able to see the quality of your work.
-No links to stores selling ready-to-wear without obtaining my prior permission. This will be allowed where something is of special interest to readers. Paid advertising is not accepted on this forum.
-No thread bumping!!!
* Bespoke: means a unique pattern is drafted specifically to the measures and proportions of the client. Known as "custom" in American English. A graded pattern with minor alterations prior to garment production in a factory is known as "made-to-order" (commonly called "made-to-measure", even though the detailed measures and proportions of the client are not used as the basis of the pattern). "Hand made" means made by hand - not guidance by hand through a machine. It is not necessary a mark of quality.
Posts in which ready-to-wear and made-to-order (made-to-measure) garments are deliberately misrepresented as being "bespoke" or "custom" are not permitted.
