J.Hilburn is getting into the formalwear business.
The men’s wear company on Tuesday will begin offering a line of made-to-measure tuxedos, shirts, bow ties, cummerbunds, vests and cuff links. This is the brand’s first foray into the formalwear category and the line will be marketed to its 60,000 existing customers.
The tuxedos will be offered in super black, blackwatch plaid, black mini texture and midnight blue, and will be made from Italian wool fabrics. Price points start at $625 for jackets, $250 for trousers, $160 for vests and $159 for shirts. Accessories will retail for $65 to $89. A J.Hilburn style adviser will visit each customer to take measurements and help choose fabric, silhouette and details.
“Our goal at J.Hilburn is to help men dress better and feel great about the way they look for any occasion in their lives,” said cofounder and chief executive officer Hil Davis. “For the most special events a perfectly fitted, fine quality tuxedo can add a layer of confidence and easy elegance.”
Veeral Rathod, cofounder and president, added: “For the cost of a few one-time rentals, J.Hilburn customers can have a completely personalized tuxedo.”
Founded in 2007, J.Hilburn was recently named to Inc. Magazine’s 2012 list of the top 5,000 fastest growing companies in America.

For @monsemaison’s pre-fall 2018 collection, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim honed in on the brand’s many signatures — men’s wear, which was tweaked and feminized through deconstruction, proportion play and lots of bare shoulders. See the rest of the photos on WWD.com #wwdfashion (📷: George Chinese)

@janellemonae’s “What’s Your Frequency?” room in @refinery29's #29Rooms made its debut this week at the opening of the Los Angeles art exhibit. “It’s about the ongoing conversation around mass surveillance, the weaponization of technology and cultural uniformity. My space was created so that we can come together and talk about the complexities of our humanity,” said Monáe. #wwdeye (📷: @bucknerphoto)
@pantone announced their Color of the Year 2018: Ultra Violet. Nearly 20 months after the musician Prince’s death, fashion is having a purple moment. Varying shades of purple appeared on spring or fall runways, from @christopherkane to @calvinklein. @gucci’s Alessandro Michele bathed his fall runway in ultra violet-colored light at one point. Pantone 18-3838 is meant to “push the boundaries of what inspires us to look upward and outward to the future.” #wwdnews #wwdfashion (📷: @kukukuba)
