May 15 – bespoke (And an apology!)

Hello!! I’m back! Sorry if you’ve missed a few mails from me – Internet problems and sick children! Hopefully everyone and everything is all fixed and healthy now. I’ll send a catch up mail a bit later on.

So, bespoke clothing is basically order made clothing. In Australia, bespoke clothing generally means shoes and suits for me. Of course, women order bespoke clothing too, but for women it is more common for them to buy clothes and then have them altered to fit correctly, rather than ordering something made especially for them.

Men, on the other hand, buy suits and have them fitted, but they are also more likely to buy an original, one of a kind bespoke suit, it seems! How about in Japan? Is bespoke clothing popular with both men and women?
