Apple's Jony Ive and industrial designer Marc Newson go in-depth on (RED) auction pieces - Page 2

post #41 of 49
Did you consider that maybe Ive himself used bespoke to describe the piece considering as he is British? I can't actually believe that you felt so strongly about the usage of the word bespoke that you needed to call AI out on it. Expand your vocab, bespoke is a much nicer sound then custom-made.

I would bet that 99.9% of Americans have no idea what bespoke means in this situation.  I've been living in Europe (but not the UK) for 10 years and never heard the term until a few months ago (from a Brit).    "Custom made" can be understood by anyone who speaks English...why not use that?

 

OK, bud, here's the coup de grace: just TRY to tell us how "custom made" rings better than "BESPOKE" for the $50,000 pair of boots which also sold at the auction.

Well, ‘bespiked’ works better, first off.

 

Those boots say, “This is perhaps the most uncomfortable article of clothing I have ever worn, and to illustrate this I have adorned the covering with a physical representation of the pain I am undergoing in wearing them.”

I had never heard of that before. If it is a land-based creature I'd think AU or NZ area would be a good starting place.
