Wearing a made-to-measure suit is the latest trend in menswear for weddings. This is your day too and a custom men’s clothier can help you look the best you’ve ever felt! J. Hilburn Custom Men’s Clothier offers a personal stylist that will meet you at your home, office, etc. to take your measurements; make suggestions on suiting options; and review Italian fabrics such as Loro Piana in order to create the perfect suit for your wedding. And, you and your groomsmen will have a made-to-measure suit that you will proudly want to wear for other occasions.

Why wear a boxy suit that someone else has worn? Be comfortable in a suit that fits because it is made just for you. If your wedding is in the spring or summer, you may want to go with a lighter weight fabric such as linen, silk linen, or cotton for your suit, ranging in color from light khaki chambray to an ink blue solid. For a fall or winter wedding, a wool suit is a must. Currently, the most popular fall and winter suiting fabrics are variations of grey along with blue hues.

You will be surprised by the cost. J. Hilburn offers affordable luxury. Suiting options include fabric color, lapel styles, contrast threading, pocket placement, vent and lining options, vests, and trouser styles. Also, choosing a shirt in a pattern or solid color that compliments the wedding accent color is a great way to enhance your suit (and the wedding pictures!).

Your stylist will ensure that you look your very best on your big day by checking that the shoulders of your jacket end where your arms begin, the collar of your jacket hugs the collar of your shirt, the sleeve length allows for ½” to 3/4” of your shirt cuff to show, and that the jacket length ends between the top of your thumb to the middle of your thumb. Details such as these will set you apart from the other guests and have your bride swooning!
