Founder: Josef Knize
Year Founded: 1858
Established in 1858 by a Czech tailor, Knize has championed traditional men's clothing for over 150 years. In that time, they've offered ready-to-wear clothing, their own signature fragrance, a line of toiletries, and a world-class level of bespoke tailoring. The last of which is defined by their signature silhouette – three button front, side vents, soft shoulders, and what Alan Flusser once described as a "rounded-off shape." Something similar to Anderson & Sheppard and Caraceni in its emphasis on softness. It's perhaps one of the first cases of a company successfully operating as both a menswear brand and traditional tailoring house.
