For those that like language, this new tailor’s blog just told me something new.
Bespoke is actually a term which dates from the 17th century, when tailors held the full lengths of cloth in their premises. When a customer chose a length of material it was said to have “been spoken for”, hence a tailor who makes your clothes individually to your specific personal requirements, is called bespoke. Unlike “made to measure” which simply uses a basic pattern which is then simply adjusted to your measurements.
I had no idea. Thanks Hugh!
So has your IT “solution” been spoken for?
