Second, I simply do not understand the number of initial customers of bespoke clothing who turn to the forum for opinion. I don't quite get that...I'm not quite sure why they are going bespoke anyway with such uncertainty.
Of course you get it, you're just being too polite to spell it out. A large percentage - not all, admittedly - are posting about their initial commissions with the (mostly) unconscious motivation of shouting to the forum: "I've got/am planning to get bespoke stuff, I'm really really super-duper excited, talk about it (me), now!". The excitement isn't from wearing the item, but from the novelty of the process and the keeness to "join the club" (such as it is......) As someone who only got bespoke anything in terms of clothes about 4 years ago (and still only have few such items), I can empathise with this, and an internet forum is the obvious place to let it out, given the likely lack of interest from their real-life acquaintances.
