My father was a traveling farm labourer, a version of a swaggie, left school at 12 years old, and when he was young had MTM suits from Fletcher Jones. FJs used to have blokes who traveled around to farms and measured and fitted people. Its not overly romantic to realise that even very ordinary people at the near bottom of the social ladder had basically bespoke clothes - if they cared. I still have a vest from a 3 piece double breasted navy blue chalk stripe he had made by FJs in 1949 - with his name and date on the label. There is nothing elitist and 1% about a well made suit.
