I know this is “controversial,” but the majority of us don’t work as a haberdasher or in the biz. If you get the other elements right, you don’t need a loud square to make sure everyone knows how well dressed you are.
Think of it this way: What do you think of the guy in your office that wears fun socks and goes out of his way to make sure everyone sees them?
B: Do you offer both bespoke and made-to-measure?
That’s the thing - I’m a custom shirt maker. Let’s leave it at that, because the term bespoke annoys me.
Bespoke is an archaic British term, that has no real meaning today. You can make a shirt pattern via computer or by hand and you can get a damn good fit both ways. My old Chinese guys who sew for me, make collar patterns only, for the rest they just start penciling the pattern on to the fabric. They don’t even make patterns unless I ask them to.— Carl Goldberg of CEGO
