Your suit is like a fingerprint—it tells people a lot about you, and no two are alike. Or at least, they shouldn’t be. Every suit you own should say something about you, and whether it’s a classic bold silhouette or a playful trendy slim fit, the clothing defines you. You are showing the world that you take yourself seriously as a man, appreciate the finer things in life, and don’t skimp on life’s necessities. There’s a confidence boost that occurs with every belt loop, pic stitch and surgeon cuff. A custom suit is addicting—once you’ve worn something that has been created to melt onto your body, you’ll never go off the rack again.

To paraphrase our Gentleman’s Fashion Expert, Bernhard Roetzel: “Suits are like friends. You don’t need too many of them. But they have to be good.”

A typical bespoke suit from a tailor can take anywhere from 2-3 months and at least three fittings. It’s pretty time consuming and costly, especially for those always on the go or needing a suit in a pinch. That’s where Knot Standard comes in.

Knot Standard is a bespoke men’s suit brand, revolutionizing the entire industry of traditional luxury custom suits. Each garment is hand-crafted, not tailored off the rack, made-to-measure or from a generic pattern. Your body is the pattern. You also get to play designer, customizing everything from embroidery to notch lapel to functional cell phone pockets. Don’t worry, they have ‘online bespoke advisors’ 24/7 so you can ask for fashion advice if you don’t have a woman on hand.

These guys are able to offer bespoke suits at a fraction of the typical price with an e-commerce platform, taking measurements from yourself or your local tailor through their website. Then their master tailors take over, using no shortcuts, pre-made patterns or parts, just fine Italian fabric, your digital model, and the design of your choice. If a single stitch is out of place, they will give you a full refund, no questions asked. Also, no long waiting periods—each suit arrives within three weeks of your purchase.

We went Old School Hollywood and ordered a Knot Standard classic black wool suit with luxe silk lining, pic stitching, ticket pockets, functional cuffs (aka surgeons cuffs), and an eye catching color thread combo. It was perfect. Not a drop of additional tailoring required. Slim fitting, effortless, and completely classic. The artisan Italian Reda wool was the icing on the cake.

Suit up. Make an impact when you walk into the boardroom. Show the world what you’re made of.

 

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Hi Clark, Knot Standard suits are completely bespoke, not a single piece of fabric is cut or stitch sewn before your order is taken. This means that the suit is made exactly to your measurements and requirements, you can literally ask for anything and it will be made from scratch. Our suits are also 100% Italian wool in the super 120-140s range with a full money back guarantee on your first suit.

    Erik, I’m glad you like the suit. We’d be happy to offer you a suit on our 100% money back guarantee program so you can try one for yourself. You can get a nice range of suits for $3700 from Knot Standard!

    Please feel free to reach out at info@knotstandard.com or go to http://www.knotstandard.com and speak to one of our bespoke advisors who are available around the clock.

    There seems to be a lot of these kinds of companies popping up – is it similar to Indochino? What’s the difference?

    Looks beautiful guys. I love the contrasting stitching around the buttonholes. The last suit I had made from a local tailor cost me about $3,700 and it’s baggy… he refuses to fix it without me paying more money (as if he hasn’t gotten enough from me over the years). I’d be interested to see what the experience is like when additional alterations or fittings are needed from one of these ‘online tailors’ like the Knot Standard and there’s not a local tailor who made it to take it to.
