Men wouldn’t dare call their some of their garments couture, but there are more men walking around with couture garments than women.

Definition of Haute Couture: Designers that create exclusive, expensive and trend-setting fashions for women.  That’s straight from merriam-webster dictionary, but I think it needs to be updated to include the men that share the same love affair with fashion most women have.

Some men actually act more like pre-madonna’s over beauty care and fashion than women, but if the suit fits, it’s most likely couture, or custom made, or to make it sound good-looking I’ll call it bespoken.  It is an English word that means a clothing item made to a buyer’s specification (personalised or tailored).

So while a woman may have a couture dress to call her own, her male counterpart may stand next to her with a bespoken suit on, completing a made-to-order couple of fashion.
