Made-To-Measure Suit Vs Bespoke Tailoring

For us here at Jack Bunneys there is a definitive difference between a Made-To-Measure Suit and a Bespoke Suit. However it seems that other tailors are not always in complete agreement of our definition. Its seems that some consider that a choice is enough to constitute the word 'Bespoke'
The defination of 'Bespoke : to be custom made' has become the accepted one. Like all words or phrases this has developed because of popular use, you can purchase bespoke curtains, bespoke arm-chairs, bespoke wall paper and just about anything bespoke.
The word 'Bespoke' derives from Saville Row, the home of tailoring and it was used to describe a bolt of cloth which had been 'spoken for' ie. reserved for a customer prior to cutting.
It is because of the origins of this word that I believe the word 'Bespoke' should be reserved for garments made in the spirit of Saville Row.
Mass-Produced, factory engineered garments should not (in my opinion) be labled with the exclusive Bespoke tag, despite a choice of fabrics, linings and style options.

That is why here at Jack Bunneys we clearly label all of our products and services. We will honestly tell you the method which your garment has been produced. We are proud of all of our services whether factory or hand-made.
