Clothes made to fit you, not the other way around
John H. Daniel has been making custom tailored clothing in Knoxville for over 80 years, ensuring gentlemen of fine taste a wardrobe fitted to their specific needs, not just the closest fit off the rack.
We offer a vast collection of fabrics every season including, but certainly not limited to, options like cashmere/wool blends for fine suiting, linen and silk/wool blends for sport coats, and gabardine and whipcord for four-season slacks. We create unique garments to your exact measurements and specifications, allowing you to personalize with our extensive set of options.
Each item is made to order. A pattern is created and stored for future use, the fabric is cut and sewn by skilled tailors right here in Knoxville. Your garments, therefore, take time to create. Typical delivery is five weeks after order placement.
From the classic pinstripe to solid or glen plaid, we’ll help you build the perfect suit for your profession, age, and body type. With fit options from the classic American cut to a more trim European fit to natural or rope shoulder expressions, our custom process allows us great flexibility to meet your needs and desires.
Whether you are looking for the traditional blue blazer, the foundation of a man’s wardrobe, or a casual sport coat with a bit more personality, we have a plethora of options in wool, linen, and silk/wool blends to create something truly special.
For those occasions when you need to look your best, a gentleman’s wardrobe would not be complete without a custom tuxedo. Single or double-breasted models with peak, notch, or shawl collars are available to create a timeless dinner suit for all of your formal needs.
Once an essential element to any suit, the vest is now a great opportunity to make a statement with any outfit. Vests with or without lapels, single or double breasted, and in a variety of pocket configurations, we have a vest style to fit every need.
From the classic gray flannel to colorful cotton, we have a variety of fabrics and styling options to fit your personal style and preference for trousers, whether as part of a suit or a standalone pant. Extension tabs, pleat and plain-front, braces buttons, or even side tabs–our styling options are vast.
Men’s topcoats and car coats are an integral part of a complete wardrobe. Whether your travels take you to colder climates on a regular basis, or you are looking for a better option for unpredictable local weather, custom tailored outerwear in a hard wearing fabric looks good and promises to endure years of wear and weather.
