@ZipLine-- Yea, it's a very old and fairly high class word. I mean, how many of us can have custom made clothes from the Savile Row? Savile Row is a famous place in London. Celebrities like Jude Law dress from there. And I think this is one of the few places in the world that actually use this term.
Before industrialization, when all clothing was custom made, we would have heard this word more frequently. But we mostly dress off-the-rack nowadays. The only exceptions are special occasions like weddings and even then, many people wear ready made suits and dresses.
I kind of regret this. Ready-made clothes are cheaper but they don't fit well. I bought a bespoke men's suit for my brother's wedding and it was an excellent suit. I've never had anything fit me so well and look so good.
