Channel your inner Daniel Craig for Bond-style suits and smarty pants, care of Knot Standard (don’t worry, it’s not a Boy Scout challenge). One of the fastest growing high-end menswear concepts in the US has taken up residence in Chicago’s River North, allowing you to create your own custom-made tailored suit or shirt online or in their showroom. These looks are far from standard, helping you to stand out from the sartorially-shabby crowd.
Book an appointment online for a meeting with a personal stylist, and in just an hour you can put together your own super-sharp custom get-up. They’ll harness the three Fs: fit, fabric and finish, using your measurements to build a 3D body model and digital pattern, which is then laser-cut and hand-assembled.
Finally, your new clobber will be customised and tweaked to fit. Top-notch fabrics span real cotton, wool and silk imported from London, Scotland, Germany and Italy. You can also call the shots on all-important details, from lapels to buttons, stitching, pleats and pockets.
Alternatively, Knot’s fool-proof online self-measuring system lets you send in your own specs, or they can reverse-engineer garments if you share your best-fitting jacket or trousers. There’s even an automatic webcam measuring system.
Get serious with a navy herringbone suit from the Private Collection or lighten up with a cobalt summer blazer from the Classic Collection. Because you’re worth it…Suite 114 / 1/F / 220 West Illinois St / +1 855 784 8968 / by appt only / knotstandard.com
