UK-based Bespoken does not disappoint in bringing a spot of British tailoring and attitude to New York Fashion Week. Part of their Anglo-aura comes from expert casting, but most of the strength comes from the clothes—simple but well cut suits, blazers and shirts. Their work isn't stuffy and stiff though, and the Bespoken look sits somewhere between casual New York sportswear and prim UK tailoring. It's important for New Yorkers to have suiting that's not to delicate for, say, the morning rush on the F Train. Function is always as important as fashion, and Bespoken gives us the best of both worlds.
