I agree with the OP that mannequined shots aren't helpful in really displaying the difference that bespoke represents and that they aren't really appropriate here. Now can we simply agree to not show suits on mannequins and go forth with this potentially awesome thread?

Put it on. You don't need bespoke to make a mannequin look good. A few pins will do the trick.

What a wonderful idea for a thread. Let's bring it back to life!

I know its been a while, but I don't see why. A form is a diagnostic tool for a tailor not just a form of advertising, if you have a professional eye (and we have a few here) you should be able to judge a lot of things about a garments construction and even likely its fit on a client from looking at it unpinned on a form.

With a reluctance of people to post pictures of themselves wearing suits it's also better than nothing at all.
