Of course it was bespoke. There probably wan't any decent RTW in Turkey, or the rest of
Europe for that matter, at the time, 1920s, 30s.

Here's a photo of Mustafa Kemal ( Ataturk) in uniform:

Bear very much in mind that nowadays politicians try to avoid looking too well dressed and thus aloof from the fodder who vote for them. The objective is to be 'one of the people' not someone who shops on Saville Row unlike voters who will never likely do so.
