What is bespoke?

The term bespoke describes something that is custom made for you and you only, based on your individual specifications.  A bespoke suit is made by a master tailor and is the pinnacle of men’s fashion. To be a true bespoke garment it must be made with the highest level of quality in regard to the materials, construction, and skilled craftsmanship.
