In the last year, the shopping options for stylish Dallas dudes grew exponentially. If you want to drink while you shop, West Village's Rye 51 liquors up its customers while they browse. If you want someone to help you choose your clothes, the business model of Henderson Ave.'s Trunk Club might be the right fit for you. But if you're looking for a more hands on approach and want a look that's uniquely yours, the newest store Knot Standard might suit your fancy.
In a little house at the corner of Henderson and Bonita Aves, this full service showroom allows you to flip through colorful swatches of fabric, measures you for the perfect fit, and designs a suit that no one else in Dallas owns. Four to five weeks later, it's in hand and has you itching for more. There are no racks to flip through and no discounts. The business model must work, because the 4-year-old New York City company now has showrooms in Dubai, New Zealand, and Washington DC.
Price points: Shirts around $120, suits start at $795.
