In billiards, the term “English” means to hit the cue ball to the right or left side of the center so that the cue ball doesn’t follow the aimed ball into the pocket.
Well, much like an “English”, the label Bespoken isn’t quite the straight shooter themselves. A band of brothers brought together by their admiration of bespoke craftsmanship, adds their own twist to old world English tailoring.
Bespoken, which is sold at Harrods and Bloomingdale??™s, was started by brothers Paulo and Carlos Gon?§alves and the brothers Liam, James and Sam Fayed (whose family owns Harrods, Turnbull & Asser and the H??tel Ritz in Paris). The shirts are actually manufactured in the Turnbull & Asser factory in Gloucestershire, England. Obviously, Bespoken is focused on the highest quality in design, materials and production with a modern take on traditionally tailored menswear. With the pedigree of these young men, we wouldn’t expect any less.
So, for the tastefully discerning man who dreams of a Saville Row blazer, but can’t quite swing the price tag, Bespoken may just be a nice alternative. Denim jeans always look sexier worn with a perfectly fitted shirt and blazer.
