About Bespoke


bespoke: tailor-made just for you, from scratch, from your exact specifications,
using the very best materials and meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship
(Custom items are altered (“customised”) from existing items.)

  

What is bespoke (and why not custom, or customised, or customized)?

I was born in Nairobi (yes, I have a Kenyan birth certificate), and, as an American African Goan Indian, remnants of colonialism colored my culture, Portuguese vestiges influenced my nature, and the English Empire governed my nurture.  Then we moved to Charlottesville.

I was educated in British schools and learned (besides the s and z (zed) differences), that custom meant something altered or customised from an existing thing, and bespoke meant made from scratch, one-of-a-kind, the highest level of personalisation.  Bespoke comes from the old English word bespeak, to speak for.  From the 1700s on, a British gentleman would bespeak and claim a specific bolt or bolts of the finest material (the whole nine yards), from which a master tailor would personally cut and sew a scrupulously measured, perfectly made-to-measure suit.  Such bespoke suits were made famous by the highly skilled, meticulous tailors on London’s Savile Row, and anything described as bespoke connotes the same absolute personalisation with the very best materials, attention to detail, and craftsmanship.
