BESPOKE, Adjective, British: Ordered, commissioned, arranged for. First cited in 1607” Oxford English Dictionary, 1909.

The term ‘Bespoke’ has to be one of the most overused and misunderstood words in the English language. In the context of tailoring, it denotes a garment that is made for you and you only.


The Bespoke process is the pinnacle and calling card of any tailor. The placing of a bespoke order with Timothy Everest will deliver the client a wholly unique, individual sartorial masterpiece with over 70 hours of manpower poured into every garment.

At the first stage a consultation will be arranged where the client is measured by one of our experienced cutters who notes down all the individual’s details and measurements required to construct a completely personalised pattern from scratch.

Once the stylistic needs of the client have been addressed, cloth selected from the hundreds available from the finest mills and suppliers an order is placed. The Cutter then lays a paper pattern onto the selected cloth length, which he chalks (strikes) and cuts producing a series of cloth shapes, which are bundled for trimming. Once prepared with the appropriate trimmings such as canvases, buttons and linings, the components are given to the specialist craftsman. They will then construct a baste garment in their field of expertise to form a skeleton of the finished item.
