Tailoring Terminology


‘Custom’ tailoring

is also known as ‘bespoke’ tailoring. (A 17 th century word, derived from the verb ‘bespeaks’, literally meaning the customer “be speaks” his requirements.)


‘Made-to-measure’

is often confused with custom but it is not the same. A made-to- measure garment is cut from a standard pattern and adjusted to fit an individual’s measurements before


‘Off-the-rack’ or ‘off-the-peg’

Mass produced and made to a standard size range, to fit a wide variety of sizes and shapes. Consequently, off-the- rack garments rarely fit anyone without needing alterations.
