Summer and its tropical accompaniment is officially upon us. Summer vacation, summer travel, summer happy hours. With the season comes warmer weather, sunshine, and the realization that our spring clothes are too confining, too hot, and too…well, non-tropical. Time to change over the wardrobe to match the weather so you can perform at your best with ease and style. Here are few must-have pieces for your warmer weather wardrobe:
Tropical Revenge Suiting: Take on the Warmer Months with Confidence
Travel in the summer can be brutal, but with J.Hilburn’s made-to-measure Tropical Revenge Suiting, you will be cruising in style and comfort. Available in five colors, including both solids and prints, you will find the look that matches your personal style, or order several colors for options that will keep you cool throughout the summer.
What’s great about these suits? Inspired by our customer’s love for Vitale Barberis Canonico’s Revenge Super 150’s suiting, we’ve taken this luxury Italian fabric and created a version that is ideal for warmer summer months. Maintaining the super soft and smooth texture of this fabric, we’ve crafted a lighter tropical weight that is professional and holds its shape throughout the day. For even warmer environments, have your jacket half-lined to create a breathable experience you will be thankful for all season long.
Linen: It’s Cool & You Need It
By now, you’ve probably heard all the benefits of linen. We even mentioned it just last month. Still, can we really say too many good things about linen in the summer? Linen cloth is made from the flax plant, which has a hollow reed, giving the fabric a unique composition and set of attributes. When processed and dried, the fibers are breathable, light to wear, and very durable making the fabric the ideal option for summer weather. Basically, it is perfect for keeping you cool in the heat; it is also designed to avoid stretching and resist tears. The fibers create a texturized look, giving it that casual cool style. Because of its texture and lightness, linen suits, shirts, and trousers can be dressed up or down for your summer weekend get-together or an important day at the office.
Go for a 100% linen shirt for a classic summer look or select a linen/cotton blend for a softer look, you can even opt for the soft-washed option and get a shirt with a comfortable lived-in look that can be dressed up or down.
Bold Summer Colors: Show Off Your Style
All that travel have you ready for a break? Summer weekends are the definition of an easy-going. It’s the best time of year to show off a pop of color or a bold print. Never veering from your personal style, J.Hilburn offers you a chance to push the envelope just a little and add pizzazz to your classic look. The trick to pulling off bold prints and patterns is to pair them with your classic solids, chinos, denim, or shorts. Made of cotton, these printed shirts tell the world you’re beach-ready. Go for it, you deserve it.
Up your Casual Friday Game: Made-to-Measure Polos
Something just right. A bit tamer than your bold prints, these classics aren’t your average polos. Take the BBQ, casual Friday, and golf course by storm with a polo designed to fit you perfectly. These polos deliver on the J.Hilburn promise of style and a customized fit. J.Hilburn believes that you should never compromise your style just because it’s getting warmer outside.
Your made-to-measure polo will give you the perfect fit through the arms, collar, and body of the shirt. Then, add your personal touch with your choice of customization options for the placket (3 options), collar (2 options), buttons (8 options), and pocket (2 options). That’s a total of 96 different combinations, and we haven’t even started talking about monogramming, initials, or fabrics! But relax, this is summer. I’ll help you select and order the combination the matches your personal style.
