The 100 Black Men of Austin partnered with Knot Standard to introduce 9 high school seniors to dress etiquette. John Ballay (CEO) of Knot Standard and his team of experts shared their experiences in the clothing world as well as networking opportunities. Sessions included tying a tie, knowing what color suit to wear for every occasion, understanding the ABC model (Attention to detail, Be yourself, Confidence), and testimonials from the Knot Standard team. At the end of the sessions, Matthew Mueller (Founder & President) of Knot Standard surprised the students by awarding them a custom suit and shirt.
