By Emily Kopec

You’ve been through this scenario more than a few times before: you’re going someplace where you want to dress to impress, but as you eyeball your tired dress shirts it’s quickly becomes clear that nothing’s going to hit a homerun. After some unsuccessful shuffling and try-ons, you’re left with the million-dollar question usually reserved for your female counterparts: What am I going to wear?

J. Hilburn solves this and other dilemmas standing between your looking just okay and having that certain distinguished appearance. If you’re ready to up the outfit ante and take control of how you come off to others, it’s time you get to know this up and coming company that offers personal tailoring, now serving Worcester.

J. Hilburn Style Adviser Marianna Clark explains, “We have about 250 fabrics in our collection for you to choose from, and about 60% of our collection consists of conservative colors and fabrics to try to appeal to the masses. We have more subtle patterns with many whites and blues to choose from.”  These are not your average shirts found in average stores, but rather high-end apparel typically exclusive to bank-breaking specialty shops.

On top of a great shirt, J. Hilburn also is offers a great polo, trouser and sweater. “Our polos are crafted from hand-harvested Peruvian Pima cotton prized around the world for its long, durable yarns,” says Marianna. “Our trouser comes in 4 different fabrics with a custom waist, fit style and an unfinished hem. Our sweaters come in cashmere and a luxury blend without the luxury price tag.”

Hilburn will connect you to your very own Personal Style Advisor (such as Marianna) who’ll meet you at the location of your choice. He or she will properly measure you and provide expert advice based on your needs and the look you hope to achieve.
