J. Hilburn Launches Tailored Suiting Collection

Fastest Growing Men's Luxury Apparel Brand Expands to Offer Personalized, Made-to-Measure Suits and Sportcoats

San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES


DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Jun 9, 2011) - J. Hilburn, the fastest-growing luxury men's brand in the US, today introduced the Tailored Suiting Collection, made-to-order in Europe and available exclusively through more than 1,000 personal style advisors nationwide. The collection is handcrafted using luxury Italian wools and offers a personalized fit, individual styling and unrivaled quality.

Men know a good suit can make or break any number of special occasions: a job interview, a presentation, meeting the parents or even a wedding day. But shopping for an off-the-rack suit that fits is next to impossible, and bespoke suits can cost thousands of dollars and take months to produce.

The J. Hilburn suit is different: it begins with a personal consultation with a style advisor who takes measurements and helps design a suit that reflects every client's unique style and personality. Personalization options include:

  • A preferred fit profile
  • Fine Italian wool fabrics that reflect a wide range of colors and patterns
  • Unique lining options
  • Pockets and vents
  • Button styles

J. Hilburn suits are made-to-order at the same trusted European factory that manufactures suits for brands such as Zegna, Burberry and Armani, but are available exclusively through J. Hilburn style advisors for a fraction of the price. J. Hilburn suits start at $700; sportcoats start at $525.

"If there's one thing we hear constantly from our clients, it's that they wish there was a smarter way to shop for suits," said Hil Davis, CEO, J. Hilburn. "The fact is there aren't a lot of options for guys who appreciate fit, material, quality, and value; you end up with some combination of the four, but not all. That's where we fit in."

"We've spent the last three years rebuilding a luxury supply chain that will disrupt the retail industry," said Veeral Rathod, President, J. Hilburn. "Just as we've been able to introduce custom shirts to thousands of men for the first time while simultaneously winning over diehard custom aficionados, we're confident the new suiting collection will impress and delight them both."

In addition to suits, J. Hilburn offers impeccably handcrafted custom dress shirts and trousers, as well as ready-to-wear items like cashmere sweaters, polos and fine accessories. In 2010, J. Hilburn sold 60,000 shirts, more than any other custom clothing maker in the world. To browse J. Hilburn's latest collection and find a local J. Hilburn style advisor, visit www.jhilburn.com.
