I'd like one of those custom-made to my measures!!  It's getting cold in Minnesota.  That would be perfect.

It seems that many SR bespoke firms do sell RTW these days.

Which fine, as long as it keeps their bespoke branch going and it doesn't hurt the brand in the sense that people start to care more about the label than the bespoke make and fit.

 

I doubt, however, that the items shown are fit for a Nordic winter...

It's fine, but just so long as they don't stamp the label 'bespoke' on it.

There is the "crux", when a company is known for it's bespoke (and is highly praised on various fora and blogs) the name (or label) becomes a synonym for their style or bespoke line in a way that it doesn't matter anymore whether it actually is bespoke (hand made) or not.

See Rubinacci, Huntsman, Gieves and Hawkes and now Anderson & Sheppard. 

Again, ok as long as that keeps their hand made bespoke alive (and I don't have to see images of Luca Rubinacci wearing every scarf in their collection at once...  :poke:)!

Depends on your definition of bespoke. If it's fused, made in a factory in Asia, based on adapted block patterns, I don't call it bespoke but a way to befuddle the public. Standards my man, standards! :)

 

Call it affordable bespoke, or semi bespoke or whatever. But to create a lower level product and slap a qualifying label on it that traditionally is reserved for the highest grade work....  no.

It can be quite likely that RTW has a big chance of becoming more popular than their bespoke services... this is mostly logical because it is more affordable and has a bigger client reach. But I think their sells in the RTW will be important to keep the company thriving in difficult times and will also help finance the bespoke branch of the company. 

 

It gets bad if the company ever gets sold or get an owner who values money above all and throws away the bespoke because he/she deems it profitable...

See, THIS is what happens when you start dicking around with definitions and traditions.

Where's the eyecandy? Just a lo-quality photo of two rather shapeless coats. I don't see the appeal at all.

The colors are gorgeous.  I could eat them.  Just looking at them makes me happy.  So many bespoke clothes are handsome, but rather dull (If I were paying bespoke prices, I would make conservative picks, too). I can't see many men being able to wear the brightest of those colors, but they're certainly fun to look at.

I still suspect this is a parody.

No, it's certainly not bespoke. It was the freshness and playfulness of the colors to which I was responding.

It is with grave severity that I say no, it is not a parody. It is a new product, and there's a crowdfunding campaign going to raise funds, so as to take it into production.

 

Within a few years, I'm sure we'll see 'bespoke' versions available on Savile Row :)

Actually, I know it's real -- another member posted the link a few weeks ago in a different part of the forum. But I still can't believe that this is a thing.

Just noticed you signature. That 'suit', that's exactly missing dignity.

 

People are being infantilised by commerce. That suitsy is a fine example of it.

:-)   Oh I remember - my baby had such "Suitsy". It was a real jump forward for baby clothings in those days. They were closed inside the legs with snaps.  My sister had bought it in US (around 1965). The nurses came running to look at this little garments (size 50 cm). But the socks were attached too. Maybe another idea?
