Season of the Stitch

If you’re going to treat yourself to a new suit, fall’s the time to do it.

It’s when the distinguished tweedy fabrics come out. The natty three-pieces. The elbow patches. Sartorial bulwarks to ward off the autumnal chill.

Servicing your seasonal suiting re-up: J. Hilburn’s “A Fortnight in SoHo,” a twelve-day fête du swagger on Grand Street, starting today.

Previously, Hilburn’s natty duds were exclusively available online and via their direct sales model. But now, for the first time ever, you can get your hands on the breadth of their collection (from suiting swatch to cashmere cardigan) all in one place.

NYC design-ophiles HomePolish have transformed a downtown loft into a mid-century den of woody machismo, where Hilburn’s ace “style advisors” ply their custom-fitting trade – be it selecting the perfect Loro Piana windowpane sportcoat fabric or ensuring said jacket fits like your cold-weather armor.

In addition to suiting, Hilburn’s doing custom shirting with Albini and Thomas Mason fabrics and peddling ready-to-wear gear like shawl-collared sweaters and cashmere overcoats.

Plus house accessories, watches from Daniel Wellington and drams of whiskey throughout.

You know, to treat yourself while treating yourself.

Nota bene: book your appointment online or simply walk in and let them know InsideHook sent you – it’ll earn you $25 off a custom shirt.
