First off: please excuse my (presumed) naivety. I've never owned a bespoke suit and I surely bear no animosity towards the companies/designers mentioned further below.
Thanks for your regards.
When watching some movie or TV episode,
every so often, I hear something to the tune of:
"Oooh, it's a Zegna"
"Oooh, it's a Brioni"
What's all the deal with brand names, anyway?
I do grasp the advantages of bespoke suits, I think. But, who does actually go to a designer to have a suit tailored to him? I mean: Is it even possible? Realistically?
Maybe I've simply failed to grasp the concept of "bespoke".
Isn't it meant to simply say: "Choose some fabric, then choose your style (or vice versa), we'll take your measurements and after a short while, 1 to 1000 days, you'll be handed a suit."
Isn't that the whole concept of "bespoke"? Where do Zegna or Brioni come in? (I can see into the future: Someone will show up and simply reply: "style" ;-) Hopefully my view is distorted)
