In Olde England, “bespoke” meant creating tailored clothing made at a customer's behest. Back then, the gentleman's surname was written on the actual fabric, hence the garment was “spoken for.”
We have taken that philosophy to heart, and strive to create clothing for today’s man with the same level of fit and craftsmanship as this bygone era.
We’re part Savile Row, part Rock n’ Roll.
We strongly believe that the quality and craftsmanship of yesteryear can be seamlessly merged with a modern interpretation of today’s style. We bring this vision to life under the tutelage of the pattern cutters & craftsmen of Turnbull & Asser—one of the most eminent shirt makers in the world.
In fact, Bespoken is the only brand produced out of the legendary Turnbull & Asser shirting factory in Gloucester, England. We’re proud to say it’s one of the last remaining factories in not just the United Kingdom, but in all of Europe.
We believe they don’t make ‘em like they used to. And that just doesn't sit well with us.
We take great pride in using mills that have been producing first-rate fabrics from as far back as 1796, and our manufacturing is strictly exclusive to Europe and the United States.
We believe that the devil is in the details. Good day, Lucifer.
Details matter. Period.
For proof of our obsession with upholding this belief, look no further than the anatomy of a Bespoken shirt. Our shirts are hand cut, hand sewn, hand inspected and hand pressed. In fact, each shirt requires the hands of no less than 16 separate skilled craftsmen.
