Tommy Hilfiger once again shined the spotlight on its suit business with a stand-alone tailored clothing presentation that pointed to how a department store-priced collection could be both accessible and trend-right.

The fall 2010 tailored line — produced under license by Marcraft Apparel — translated the brand’s preppy heritage into classic and serious suitings. The Hilfiger man was given sleek versions of boardroom favorites such as the navy double-breasted suit and the two-button gray windowpane style — both in wool.

The presentation also revealed the brand’s more playful side in tailored separates, which featured corduroy blazers, plaid sport coats, overdyed trousers and other updates of classic Ivy League style.

Next holiday, Hilfiger also will deliver retro evening styles such as a black cashmere double-breasted blazer, plaid dinner jacket and black velvet dinner jacket.

All tailored looks were paired with Tommy Hilfiger sportswear and dress furnishings.

With suits starting at $495, Tommy Hilfiger may be priced for the midtier, but its styling and fit is more advanced than many of the brands in the tailored clothing department — a likely welcome distinction for the sluggish classification.
