An ECU alumn and world-class entrepreneur returned to Greenville on Thursday, clothing trunk in hand, to reunite with his former employers and make sure his customers are happy.

Chris Knott , 47, spent the day at Coffman’s Men’s Wear on Red Banks Road for a trunk show of his Peter Millar brand of men’s fashions for this season and next spring. Knott travels the world meeting with manufacturers, designers and store owners to market and move his down-to-earth designs onto some of their top shelves.


Knott knew early on, he said, that he would make his living in the clothing business. He started working in clothing stores as a teenager, then graduated from ECU with a major in clothing textiles and a minor in business.
