Each day we wake up and decide what we are going to wear. Whether we are readying for a typical day at work or a big pitch meeting, our choices in attire will set the stage for our interactions throughout the day and impact the opportunities we see in our future.
“Style is way to say who you are without having to speak.” —Rachel Zoe
Your choice in clothing represents who you are and what you want. What are you goals for the day? How do you want others to see you? Each of these is a very personal decision that can only be masterfully communicated through a unique combination of clothing and accessories. If this level of expert personal style sounds like something you need, but is too complicated or time consuming, it won’t be. That’s where your J.Hilburn stylist comes in. I am here to put this puzzle together for any occasion or pitch meeting you have coming up, or even your average 9-to-5.
“Style is very personal. It has nothing to do with fashion. Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever.” —Ralph Lauren
Consider who you are and what you want to accomplish. If you are a man who is advanced in your career and have worked hard to gain expert levels of experience, perhaps you are looking for a personal style that is more professional, traditional, but still shows that you understand modern trends and appreciate high quality clothing. You might wear solid colors with a subtle print to bring out your sense of style and differentiate you as progressive and savvy.
“Create your own visual style. Let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.” —Orson Welles
Or, perhaps you are a man who is confident in his career and is looking for that next deal that will solidify your path for the next few years. You have experience and authority, but you also know that you still need to show your energy and personality. You may look for a style that is slightly more relaxed and portrays your confidence. For an average 9 to 5, you may not opt for a tie or dress shirt, instead laying a polo under your sportcoat and paring with sneakers instead of dress shoes. You stick with traditional color pallets but add more pop to your patterns and top off your look with a killer set of shades.
“Style is knowing who you are, and what you want to say.” —Gore Vidal
Or, if you are someone who considers himself on the path to great success as the up-and-coming employee at work, you likely have a different take on style all together. This is your time to really kill it in the workplace and impress the people who will help you get to where you want to go. You know you are good and you have the confidence in yourself to show the higher ups that you’ve got what it takes. You probably prefer a more modern look with a slim fit and bolder colors or patterns, but one where every detail is in place. You look good and you feel good. The fact that today is just a normal day at the office doesn’t mean you plan on taking a break from looking your best. Instead, you prefer to pull out all the stops in your attire every day, just like you pull out all the stops in your work. Your dress and performance is on point.
“Fashion is a trend. Style lives within a person.” —Oscar de la Renta
Whoever you are, as a Personal Stylist, I will get to know you and what you want and need from your look. I will advise and guide you as you define your personal style, and yourself. What makes it even better? J.Hilburn offers the best fitting luxury clothes, without the traditional markups. Your clothing is made to you the first time around. This is not a suit you purchase and then have tailored to you, instead we start with you by measuring and ordering the clothing to be made to your size and desired fit. As our original founders said, “We started J.Hilburn because we got tired of wearing ill-fitting clothes and paying luxury prices for luxury quality. So, we obsessively re-engineered menswear to make each garment one at a time, guaranteeing fit and eliminating unnecessary markups.” Plus, with your J.Hilburn stylist on your side, you know you will never be without great personal style.
