I recently was reminded of English cut when I met the gentleman who had introduced the blogging culture to the bespoke tailor in question @ BarCamp. An excellent example of use of blogs in business! I encourage all designers to peruse it!So How do you define yourself! How do you expect others to define you! There is a huge amount of talent among out there!

"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.

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

"Bespoke" refers to the act of "speaking" for the cloth, choosing it to be made into a garment.
