"If you are out to describe the truth, leave elegance to the tailor." - Albert Einstein.
"The finest clothing made is a person's skin, but, of course, society demands something more than this." - Mark Twain.
However, made-to-measure items are seen by many to involve less workmanship than bespoke or "custom made" garments, as made-to-measure garments always involve some form of standardization in the patterning and manufacturing processes, whereas a bespoke garment is made entirely from scratch based on a customer's specifications.
Linking roads include Burlington Place, Clifford Street and Burlington Gardens.
Some fashion houses and fashion designers produce mass-produced and industrially manufactured ready-to-wear lines, while others offer garments that, while not unique, are produced in limited numbers.
SAVILE ROW is a shopping street in Mayfair, central London, famous for its traditional men's bespoke tailoring.
Savile Row was built between 17 as part of the development of the Burlington Estate, and is named after Lady Dorothy Savile, wife of the 3rd Earl of Burlington.
It originally ran from Burlington Gardens (then Vigo Lane) to Boyle Street, with houses only on the east side, but in 19378 it extended to Conduit Street, and in the 19th century houses were built on the west side.
