The Dark Knot is a men’s accessories brand with a simple core philosophy: it’s geared towards helping men dress better while providing the market with luxurious, handmade accessories, at an affordable price. Hence, each of their handmade accessories comes presented in an elegant black gift box, along with a card with recommendations for matching attire. Who needs a style consultant or advisor when your favorite brand offers it at no additional cost? The Dark Knot’s product line is extensive — what started out purely as a necktie line has now grown to include ties, pocket squares, lapel flowers, bracelets, (leather & beaded), cufflinks, tie clips & money clips. This fall & holiday season, they’re also introducing a line of ultra luxurious ties handmade in Italy
Founder Rishi Chullani was often frustrated with brands that focused on simply selling accessories, versus offering a full style consultancy service, which would truly help gentlemen dress better. With a wardrobe filled with suits, shirts and ties, Chullani struggled to mix and match basic colors and patterns, a problem he felt other guys could relate to. This, along with hefty pricing across accessories product lines led Rishi to found The Dark Knot. The Dark Knot offers an integrated shopping experience: you can seamlessly search for items based on matching suits, matching shirts or even the type of occasion you’re dressing for.
What makes The Dark Knot Ties & Accessories so special? They are all handmade, using the finest craftsmanship. Each of The Dark Knot’s ties are made using the highest yarn count silk, resulting in an exquisite drape. Additionally, each of the ties is interlined with a double layer of wool and cotton, resulting in a rich, thick knot. And, The Dark Knot’s pocket squares are all crafted with hand-rolled contrasting edges, providing customers an additional pop that few others can rival. It truly is this attention to detail that sets the brand apart.
Last but not least, The Dark Knot is firmly committed to giving back, having entered into an agreement with SOS Children’s Villages, a non-profit dedicated to helping abandoned, impoverished and orphaned children requiring family care. SOS provides about 50,000 children and 15,000 young adults with a permanent new family, and new SOS mother to help provide family-based care.
