Because I wear their streetwear lines not suits. But on that note I visited Saville Row on my last trip to London and even they talked of Brunello admiringly.

Surely bespoke streetwear isn't more expensive than (high end) bespoke suits?

(high end) bespoke streetwear is almost certainly going to be more expensive than (high end) bespoke suits.

I’m curious who might even provide that. I know at trunk shows I have customized fabrics on street wear but never any concept of bespoke. I’d imagine you’d have to be a six figure spend or more client to get that privilege.

Really depends on the kind of "streetwear". Bespoke jeans, leather jackets, tees and boots will be easy to come by.

Anything more "exotic" will depend on the specific garment. Lots of adventurous tailors around there, but some items are just fundamentally better suited for mass production.

I don't think you'll need six figure spends unless you want something particularly difficult to make. Everything weird is going to be expensive though, developing a whole new pattern takes a while.

vnapersona bespoke by Maurizio Altieri looks fascinating, I'm not sure how attainable it is though.
