Custom Clothing That Comes To You

Custom Clothing That Comes To You

There is NOTHING (and I mean nothing) like a man in a well-fit suit. He’s automatically more attractive, better respected, and you know he’s got to feel great about himself. Here’s the problem: Where in Milwaukee is a gentlemen supposed to find a good suit? Lets be honest, unless he is the “average” body type for our region, a lot of guys are having a hard time finding that perfect fit. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood outside my husbands dressing room while he’s flung dress shirts and blazers aside with a “too loose, too short” remark.…

There is NOTHING (and I mean nothing) like a man in a well-fit suit. He’s automatically more attractive, better respected, and you know he’s got to feel great about himself. Here’s the problem: Where in Milwaukee is a gentlemen supposed to find a good suit?

Lets be honest, unless he is the “average” body type for our region, a lot of guys are having a hard time finding that perfect fit. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stood outside my husbands dressing room while he’s flung dress shirts and blazers aside with a “too loose, too short” remark. By the time he gives up I’m shocked to see the inside of his dressing room, which looks like an explosion of retail “nesting” (Definition: a desperate attempt to fulfill ones needs for a new wardrobe or outfit resulting in an overstuffed dressing room of failed attempts which often leads to a complete mental breakdown).  Wouldn’t it be easier if a magical menswear fairy could just come to your man’s office or home, measure him for the perfect fit, let him pick out the colors and textures and then BOOM – he gets perfectly fit suit/shirts in the mail for nearly the same price as buying them off the rack? Enter J. Hilburn. It’s exactly what they do, except instead of “menswear fairy” they’re respectively called Style Advisers. 

What exactly is J. Hilburn? It is the largest maker of custom shirts in the U.S. What makes it special? There isn’t a J. Hilburn store.  Per request, a Style Advisor comes to every client at his home or office. He will be measured to ensure the perfect fit, and be offered an array of material to choose from – as well as collar, pocket and cuff styles. Needless to say, J. Hilburn offers a 100% fit guarantee. Once the first custom shirt is received in the mail and he loves it, he is free to buy them online to be shipped straight home. No going to the store, business hours don’t matter, and clothes can even ship to a hotel for business trip emergencies. It’s a new generation and this new way of shopping couldn’t be more convenient for the modern man. This also isn’t just a clothing line for business. J. Hilburn offers sport coats, jeans and polo’s… pictured on the yummy man below.

The material is milled in Italy, so you can expect the utmost quality. Custom shirts start at $89 and custom initials are embroidered on the inside of the collar. J. Hilburn also offers personalized suits (starting at $700), outerwear, 100% cashmere sweaters, ties and accessories (including crocodile…sexy!). There are so many options it’s unlikely he will be seen wearing the same getup as someone else. The thought of him getting measured for his suit/shirts at the office is almost a little “James Bond” isn’t it? I’m flustered just thinking about it! I had an opportunity to speak to a J. Hilburn Style Advisor, Therese Nelson. She is incredibly motivated, easy to talk to and very well dressed and professional herself! If you’re interested in learning more about J. Hilburn please contact her at therese.nelson@jhilburnpartner.com. Also, check out the J. Hilburn site to view their smashing choices of shirts, suits and more. 

Bye little style junkies!
