Samuel Johnson's Dictionary
Etymology: irreg. particip. from bespeak; which see.
The word bespoke () has evolved from a verb meaning 'to speak for something', to its contemporary usage as an adjective. Originally, the adjective bespoke described tailor-made suits and shoes. Later, it described anything commissioned to a particular specification (altered or tailored to the customs, tastes, or usage of an individual purchaser). In contemporary usage, bespoke has become a general marketing and branding concept implying exclusivity and limited runs.
Bespoke refers to something that is customized or personalized according to individual preferences or specific requirements. It typically refers to products or services that are specially made or tailored to suit a particular customer's desires or needs.
imp. & p. p. of Bespeak
Bespoke is a British English word that means a clothing item made to a buyer's specification. While it can be applied to other items, including computer software and luxury cars, the term historically was applied only to men's tailored clothing, footwear and other apparel, implying measurement and fitting. For most non-clothing items, the term build to order is usually used instead. The distinguishing points of bespoke tailoring are the buyer's total control over the fabric used, the features and fit, and the way the garment should be made. More generally, "bespoke" describes a high degree of "customisation", and involvement of the end-user, in the production of the goods. "Bespoke" is rarely used in any context in other varieties of English, which usually prefer terms such as "tailor-made" or "customised".
