Knot Standard is creating a reputation as the leaders in bespoke men’s suits. With an array of options, customers are spoiled for choice and customization options.
The journey starts by choosing a suit by color, texture or occasion. By narrowing your choice, you’re given the most appropriate selection of suits to choose from. Naturally, there will be a few choices to look through, you’re given the chance to zoom, rotate and view the suit options in high detail.
Once you’ve chosen the occasion and/or the color of the suit, you’ll be given the chance to go through all of your customization options. This is where the real fun begins!
It is good to have an idea of a style before you start getting down into the details. Knowing what you want your finished product to look like or having a style icon like David Beckham or Brad Pitt to ask ‘would Brad Pitt ever be seen wearing something like this’ helps. There are plenty of options, so it is good to have a focus. If you’re not sure what to go for, don’t be afraid to reach out for help, at the top of the screen click ‘talk to a bespoke advisor’ and they’ll be able to help you focus on getting the right result.
First, you’ll need to choose the cut of your jacket, the options are laid out clearly and you’ll quickly be able to compare the alternatives. Knot Standard suits are specifically tailor cut for you, so regardless of what you choose, you are guaranteed to have a suit that fits well and looks good on you.
The next step is to choose the lapel; your options are notch lapel, peak lapel and skinny peak lapel. These options vary from functional, to contemporary through to modern. Knot Standard recommends the notch lapel because it is the classic look for a suit, if you’re looking for a style that will see you through the years, this is the most common and the most functional look. If you’re a fashion follower and looking for a suit for the season, the skinny peak lapel is the look to go for.
Double vents and single vents is a fairly straightforward option, it really just comes down to personal preference. The double vent actually originated when men decided that they wanted to be able to sit on a bar stool and look suave at the same time, the two vents allow the suit to sit smoothly.
The number of buttons on the suit comes down to the wearer. The single button is most fashionable now, whilst two buttons are more practical and the third button ideal for taller men or those who often wear a waistcoat under the jacket.
Contrast thread or highlight thread is one of the options that really let you make your mark on your suit. Although it is a small detail, it helps to define the suit and add a touch of personality if it is done properly. It will be most noticeable on the buttonholes, but can be customized to your liking. There is an array of options to choose from, so to simplify the process the Knot Standard system gives you the choice of lighter or darker thread, otherwise you can specify a color if you wish. Hint: if you want to try colors against the fabric, check out the embroidery option that lets you play around with alternatives.
Now for the part that will really blow your friends away, if you want to show that you’ve got style and class and a suit that looks expensive (more expensive than it actually is), this is where the embroidery comes into play. Most guys opt to put their name in there, others an inspirational quote or their wedding date for example. You can see what your embroidery is going to look like and choose the best thread by playing around with the customization details.
Of course, Knot Standard stops at nothing and gives you full customization, so naturally you’re going to want to choose your suit liner and piping. For those who are not familiar with the term, piping is the trim between the liner and the inner suiting fabric. If you can’t decide what to do, go for the option in the picture, look at other suit types and colors for inspiration or even ask a bespoke advisor and let them know what look you’re trying to achieve, for example sophisticated suit, classy suit, cool suit, funky suit, etc.
Why stop there?! You also have the choice on the pants, the number of pleats and whether you’d like phone pockets or cuffs on the hem.
