To break it down, for an untrained eye, there are small things that will probably go undetected when comparing a made to measure suit to a bespoke suit. Though a consultation may be identical between the two, the measurements may even be the same; however, the differences in your suits construction are crucial. If you’re used to made to measure, once you try bespoke, the differences are so drastic that it should hit you instantaneously. The difference between bespoke and made to measure is severely important to understand today because as the word ‘bespoke’ gets thrown around and abused, it becomes more commonly misleading.
