Knot Standard: Custom Menswear + Womenswear
Much of the menswear and womenswear industry has come to settle on a standard that is mediocre. Fast, cheaply constructed clothing that fits poorly, has short lifespans, and lacks personality. We do not accept those standards.We believe that every man and woman should look their best at all times, wearing clothing that is custom-made for them alone. Clothing made to superior standards, with the finest and most versatile fabrics available, utilizing cutting-edge technology and unparalleled skill at every turn. That is our standard.
John Ballay and Matt Mueller founded Knot Standard in 2012, after meeting as young expats in Dubai. They were both inspired by the bespoke clothing so readily available in the region, and felt that men and women back home deserved the same level of attention, quality, and customization. They created Knot Standard to unite their shared interests–custom menswear and womenswear, technology paired with human ingenuity, upending the prevailing standards of fashion. With the overriding belief that a person’s style should be as individual as they are, they continue to push Knot Standard forward.
Knot Standard has 8 showrooms nationwide and has been in Chicago since 2015. With our continued growth, we have decided to label ourselves as a technology company that offers SaaS (CRM, eCommerce, and a patented fitting system/app). We have gained the attention of very large and very prestigious companies such as: Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers, Zegna, Canali, Ted Baker and Hugo Boss. As of now, we are in 27 Nordstrom locations (Michigan Ave | Oakbrook, IL) and anticipate to be in over 50 locations by the end of 2023. Nordstrom, Brooks Brothers, Zegna, Canali, Ted Baker and Hugo Boss have all bought into our patented fitting system/app. What that means is, when you get custom garments from them, you are being fitted the Knot Standard way. We are very happy with the companies that have acquired and embraced our technology, and are excited to be paving the way custom garments are now being fitted and elevating everyone’s standard.
