Bespoke: The Men's Style of Savile Row
Description:

A fully illustrated history of bespoke tailoring—the custom-made men’s clothing that made a small London street a globally known brand to generations of sartorial connoisseurs. Savile Row is renowned for fine custom tailoring—"bespoke" in its own parlance. The term originated when cloth for a suit was said to "be spoken for" by customers who have included generations of stylish and tasteful men, from rakes to royals. Bespoke is the epitome of male sartorial style, exquisite quality, and craftsmanship, and has been worn by a veritable who’s who of famous and important men: Winston Churchill, Cary Grant, Russell Crowe, David Beckham, and countless world leaders. Bespoke charts Savile Row’s contribution to fashion and culture chronologically and features twenty-six profiles of today’s master tailors from historic firms such as Gieves & Hawkes and Henry Poole to more recent ones like Nutters and Ozwald Boateng, who was the first Savile Row tailor to stage a catwalk show in Paris.

Bespoke - speak for your own.

Clearly the meaning says it all. bespoke in the clothing term is rendered by bespoke suit/bespoke shirts etc. which means they are custom made . the tailors take measurements from customers. select a pattern and starts to work on it. a rough draft is made from scratch which is then custom fitted according to the need of the customer. the best part is that the customer can choose the fabric, color anything and everything about their suit.

a bit costly than the ready to wear suits but the results compensate for it all.
