I'll classify something as bespoke if it fits the person as if it was made specifically for them.


Example:

If I went to Saks and purchased a Gucci sweater, and it fit me perfectly... thats bespoke.


Idk..

Just me , eh?

What are you talking about? Do you think you're humpty-dumpty? Words have meaning independent of your opinion, and bespoke does not mean what you think it means.

Or more exactly, because you have never worn a bespoke garment, you just think that the OTR garment "fits perfectly".

The boxer-briefs I just put on are bespoke, by this interesting definition.

What an intelligent post.

And by 'intelligent', I mean my new definition of 'intelligent', which is actually synonymous with 'completely moronic'.

I find that most toilets are bespoke, especially if you put the seat down.
