Designing W/ Knot Standard At Home

Sabir M. Peele designing Knot Standard Blazer

As mentioned previously in this article, the blazer, Oxford shirt and white pants were designed via Knot Standard’s Virtual Studio. Fabrics, intricate detailing like buttonhole threads color and pocket style are just a small glimpse of the options that are available in the designing process. 

There are hundreds of fabrics to choose from for suiting through shirts, so be sure to take your time and enjoy the process. With a specialized photographic system, the garments you design in the Virtual Studio appear the way the will in person (major plus).

You’ll need to create your measurement profile, if you haven’t been to a showroom to get measured. You can try it yourself, but, it’s best to have friend assist with the process for accuracy. After you’ve designed everything, added your measurement profile and submitted your order — your package will arrive in 4 weeks. 

Included in each package is info on alterations & garment replacement. Ordering a suit, blazer or coat — those garments will come hung within a Knot Standard garment bag. Other items like shirts, ties & pants are wrapped in tissue paper with a KS sealed sticked.

  • not all fabrics in the Knot Standard collection are available (you’ll need to visit the showroom)
  • Not all detail design options are available, but, the majority are a part of the Virtual Studio

    Really great looks Sabir, I’m really digging the use of different shades of blue with white and switching up which piece consists of each of those colours. Looks impeccable! Quick question, what size shirt trashness do you wear? and do you get it tailored afterwards? I’ve been looking all over for an OTR cutaway collar shirt that doesnt need much tailoring afterwards. I am 6 foot 2, 170 pounds, 40 inch chest, 31 inch waist, BUT my neck measures at around 14.5 inches and my arms are longer than average. I like my collars to fit snug but that means the sleeves are 3 inches above my wrist at a small or whatever size neck shirt corresponds to. The only shirts that I’ve found are in JCPenney the Stafford they sell 14.5 by 34/35 shirts and those fit perfect but then there is no cutaway collar option. Thanks!

      plus my issue is that I am still a student so budget is pretty tight

      • Hi Humaam,

        Thanks for the kind words. Showcasing that flipping the pieces can really make all the difference was key. The Trashness shirt is a medium. In your case, I’d tried the medium and give it one wash and dry to get the fit to your liking.
