bespoke (bi-SPOHK)

adjective: 1. custom-made

Shortening of bespoken, past participle of bespeak (to speak for, to arrange), from Old English besprecan (to speak about). Earliest documented use: 1755

Usage (from Wordsmith)
“Book in for an eye test, as it’s much better for your eyes to get a pair that are bespoke to your needs, rather than just picking up a pair in the supermarket.”
