Look ahead to fall with J. Hilburn

Editor's note — This is part of a continuing Pinstripes and Tweed series on custom clothing.

J. Hilburn, known best for its well-regarded custom shirts, is out with a preview of its fall collection.

The new offerings go beyond shirting and include a full collection, albeit with a more casual focus.

A source inside J. Hilburn tells PinstripesandTweed.com the shift toward casual — sport jackets, sport shirts, slacks — is because many gents “get business attire, but desperately struggle with taking casual up a notch.”

Some of the collection — the gray dinner jacket (pictured above), as an example — is a bit too much, but, hey, that’s fashion. Others, including these two sport jackets (pictured below), are in many ways more elegant than a lounge suit.

When it comes time to making additions to your wardrobe just remember what Coco Chanel famously said, “Fashion passes; style remains.”
