Not the case, if the suit is well fitting.

How has this thread gone 5 pages without someone mentioning "5 cm"?

I was not happy with the fit of either of my suits. And, I did not want to pay a lot of money for another suit that may or may not fit well.

Some mentioned not wanting to wait. I am not a patient man either but bespoke shirts here in France take only one month to make and MTM suits a month and a half. I think waiting for a month or a month and a half is reasonable even for someone who doesn't like waiting. The pleasure of knowing that something was made just for you is truly great. MTM is often cheaper than Kiton or Brioni too, my MTM suits cost me about €1800 to €2200 and for the price of one Kiton or Brioni suit I can have two, sometimes even three MTM suits with near equivalent quality (fully canvassed, hand finished etc...).

Technically, it's not bespoke if it is made on the wrong pattern.

Few people have mentioned: I'm not a designer. I know "like" and "dislike" not how to make. Thus purchasing something designed by someone else has an advantage. I'd end up with pink Cupro coat with a dark wool lining.

Well it's still bespoke. Just not bespoke for you/your pattern*.

There are plenty of eBay sellers that make a considerable amount by selling "bespoke" clothing. This of course is a ridiculous notion and underlines that there is a segment of buyers out there, however small, that will spend more on an item marked "bespoke" even when it is not made for them. Clearly a group that confuses "quality" and "bespoke."

*I'm assuming here that the pants sent to Foo were based off of a similar pattern that was made for someone else.

Now that is a good argument!

 

But fortunately there are also some tailors who can act as designers.

I enjoy threads like this. Allow me to digress to the topic on why some bespoke tailors charge significantly varied prices for their bespoke efforts.

For example, a suit made in Saville Row in general is considerable less expensive than an equivalent suit made by Rubinacci. Is neopolitan tailoring that elusive and complex? Just curious, because I enjoy both venues of tailoring.

Sorry if this describes anyone here and you are offended but it's the truth. Buy yourself a $300 suit and with the $1700 in savings invest in personal training sessions at the gym - $2,000 later I promise you will look better to everyone regardless of how much your suit cost you.

Yes I am very offended.
You managed to be very right and wrong at the same time.

Rubinacci is an outlier in Naples.
