It all started with a gift from mother to son. Chris Knott chose the name Peter Millar for the company he founded in 2001 from an inscription on an antique lawn bowling ball given to him by his mother. While the origin of the name behind the artifact is a mystery, Chris felt that the name and antique represented an era when people cared deeply at all times about what kind of impression they were creating. As the name and brand suggests, the Peter Millar collection captures the classical elegance of American luxury sportswear.
Great style is not something that Peter Millar takes for granted. The Peter Millar Design team takes absolute pride in paying attention to the small details, authentic materials, and quality construction that transform simple garments and accessories into something truly tailored. As the Creative Director of the company, Chris instills a sense of style and charm into the product line that cannot be imitated.
