MWD in Made to Measure
Bespoke, made-to-measure, custom suiting are all terms that most men think are reserved for the super rich. But there’s a new movement in menswear aimed at giving the experience of bespoke but at a price that won’t break the bank (Suit Supply, Indochino, among others).
We were recently introduced to custom clothier J.Hilburn and got to experience their process first hand, and we must say, they’re the best in class. First, a style consultant comes to you so you don’t even have to leave the house. Second, they come prepared. You’ll be presented with lookbooks, hundreds of swatches, a bevy of options to create your one-of-a-kind suit, but most importantly, a totally personalized experience. Prices are probably comparable to the high-end of J.Crew or Banana Republic which is crazy considering you’re getting clothes built from the ground-up based on your measurements. These guys definitely get our paw of approval.
If you’re feeling adventurous, they’re offering our readers $25 off your first purchase of a custom shirt with the code JHPOP25 (redeemable in-store only from Oct. 9-20).
