Some are, like the oft mentioned troika of WW Chan, Baroman, and A-Man Hing Cheong. They cut an individual pattern for each customer and if one is available, a full set of fittings is available. They will do most everything one requests, instead of sticking stubbornly to a certain house style. Chan's trips abroad, though, function more like MTM in that there are usually no subsequent fittings prior to the garment's completion.

Others are not bespoke, but MTM - they alter preexisting patterns instead of creating anew.

chorse123, I don't understand what you said. Please elaborate.

Another question: How does WW Chan compare to a Saville Row bespoke?

Thanks, josepidal, but I read that thread and the word "bespoke" never came up.
