I can find bespectacled but no examples of besuited. I think the only time you would use it would be if you had poetic license, and were going for a victorian flavor or lyric rhythm and alliteration like "bespectacled and besuited"
when you use it as an adjective, describing a person who is wearing the thing.
someone wearing glasses is a bespectacled person, not a spectacled person.
i've never heard "suited" used except for cards. but i've been playing a lot of poker lately.
Usually when you sound it out. like before, become, belated, because,between, beat,beet, beer,beach,bean,beam,became, bead,beef,begot,belong,bee, beep,bestow,beauty,beautiful bee,be,(That is about the majority of them).
A bespectacled person is a person who wears glasses. "Ask the bespectacled girl"
I don't think you can put Be- in front of just any word though..a dictionary or thesaurus could be helpful.
