Obviously this is stretching the definition of 'bespoke'... [I suspect we'll end up with a fair amount of discussion about that.] However, you do get a choice of cloth, cut, etc. and decent high-street quality, meaning that you can get a much more individual suit for £200 than you could by buying straight off the peg.

Probably mostly useful to those who work in or near the City as their Bespoke store is located at 35 Blomfield Road, EC2M 7AW, but I thought it worth posting anyway.

Please don't just vote cold because you don't live in London/need to wear a suit for work/think that this is more expensive than an F&F suit/etc. I think it is a good deal for a suit that costs the same as a decent off-the-peg suit but gives you the buyer a degree of choice.

Highlights

* Choice of 12 cloths from the Fine Range at the new Moss Bespoke concept store
* Choose lining designs, colours and stlyes from the Signature Pack Range
* Option to add a personal signature to suit
* Upgrade to luxury package in-store for a supplement

Looked good to me when the gf emailed it over to me about 20min ago. I think she's trying to drop me a hint :-(

It's stretching the definition of 'bespoke' to breaking point. Choosing the cloth and lining does not make it bespoke (only 12 cloths? Bespoke tailors offer hundreds.) The work (and the cost) comes in the fitting. A bespoke tailor will usually fit the suit at least twice before it is finished. Keep in mind that a proper bespoke suit costs several thousand pounds.

bespoke–adjective
a. (of clothes) made to individual order; custom-made: a bespoke jacket.

Satisfies the dictionary definition but not the snobdar.

It's not 'bespoke' in the way most would understand it for suits, but it is made to measure. I'd suggest that the chances are that this would be a good deal for people who are looking at the £150 - £200 range M&S suits as they'll probably get a better item here.

Sure, it's not going to challenge a true bespoke suit (which doesn't have to be thousands unless you go to Saville Row), but still a good deal in my opinion.

True, but are dictionary definitions really relevent anymore ? If so, the word bespoke originates from when most things bought were made to order and any such item was said to "be spoken for", so theoretically anything that you order (e.g. a new car with your own factory fitted options) is bespoke. I'd suggest that common use is much more more relevent - i.e. when something is made to your individual design without limitation, be it a suit or anything else.

No doubt the oxford dictionary will catch up one day :-)

Ahhh, so the dictionary is wrong and your interpretation correct. Thanks for sorting that out.

I think you must have misunderstood. I was simply suggesting that common use of a word is more relevent than the formal definition.
