J.Hilburn Style Journal

A Trip Abroad with J.Hilburn

Brought to you by VP of Product, Jon Patrick, Chief Operating Officer, Larry Hagenbuch andHead of Fabric Planning and Development, Susan Miller
 
 
On the way home from Italy and Portugal where we visited our mills and attended the Milano Unica fabric show there was a lot to reflect on. Full of inspiration, motivation and pride we wanted to share it all with you. Remember- YOU make ALL of this  happen.
 
The Milano Unica fabric show is where the best Italian suiting and shirting mills come to share their collection. It’s the perfect venue to get a glimpse of the up and coming fashion and see the direction menswear is heading. Plaids, checks, and fancy solids continue to be important in both shirting and suiting. We also saw color stories for next Fall that will knock your socks off!  Leaving the show  we are more confident than ever  that J.Hilburn is on trend with the direction of menswear.
 
While the fabric show gave a glimpse into the future of menswear, visiting the mills and meeting with our suppliers gave us a look into the future of J.Hilburn. In 2010 we launched our initial suits with very few fits, adjustments, fabrics or style options.  Not to mention  we fought for relevance in a supplier that had significant business with Burberry, Incotex, Paul Smith, John Varvatos and other premium brands. Today we are their largest customer. We offer an incredible diversity of fabrics, styling options, fits, linings, buttons.  And at our price, you can’t find a comparable suit. 
 
Other highlights of the trip included: Conversations about growing our business with Loro Piana (Perhaps the most prestigious Mill in Italy, if not the world)! A press lunch hosted by Silvio Albini the President of the Albini Group (we met with top Italian press and news writers focused solely on the J.Hilburn story). And finally  tours of the Barberis and Reda Woolen mills. Here we saw their incredible lines of fabrics and forward thinking fabric innovations.
 
This trip solidified how much we have grown and how relevant we have become. It also reinforced that all of us together touch lives, make a difference and bring quality, integrity, transparency and class back into men’s apparel. 
 
 
"J.Hilburn’s business model is a new way of thinking, and we all need new thinking." - Silvio Albini President of the Albini Group
