With the re-launch of Bespoken's website (http://www.bespokenclothiers.
that now includes e-commerce, the Made-to-Measure category of
Bespoken's collection made from Thomas Mason shirting fabric is
available exclusively on the site. The design collective behind
Bespoken, Paulo Goncalves, Carlos
Goncalves, Liam Fayed, James Fayed, and Sam Fayed visited the
Albini/Thomas Mason factory in Italy to research the vast archives of
hand-drawn patterns, some dating back as far as 1885.
The designers worked closely with the mill to develop and resurrect patterns that would be woven exclusively for Bespoken and for Holiday 2011. Fabrics sourced in the archives such as the heritage plaid in the attached image have been reworked with a contemporary cut. Customers can put in their measurements, chose their collar and cuff preference, and browse the selection of Thomas Mason shirting to produce a shirt that is uniquely their own.
