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.
