Stylish hat? Check. Outstanding, custom fit J. Hilburn shirt? Check. Flashing a Casio Baby G. or Ice Watch on wrist? Check. Gentlemen, it looks like you’re ready for spring.

J. Hilburn is a new custom fit men’s clothing brand that offers luxury, custom quality shirts at off-the-rack prices and in the finest Italian fabrics in the world. The J. Hilburn line is manufactured at the same Italian mills and created with the same high-end fabrics as those used by designers who charge considerably more for their men’s clothing. Because this brand eschews storefronts in favor of one-on-one individual service through an extensive partner network, the savings are passed on to you.

The J. Hilburn experience is thoroughly enjoyable: partners meet with you at your home or work, whichever you choose, and measure you for a custom fit, offering style advice if requested along with feedback. How could shopping possibly be easier, more convenient or more sensible? Visit to view their line of elegant trousers, polo shirts, shirt patterns, outerwear, sweaters and grooming products.

Top your look off with a New Era hat. These are loved around the world and come in so many styles that there’s one to complement every outfit. At, you’ll find sports caps, The City Line from 59Fifty (which includes the Yankees Authentic On Field), caps that you design yourself, and fashion hats from the EK line (pictured above). The EK line was derived from New Era founder Ehrhardt Koch and inspired by vintage headwear; it can take you from work to dinner to a nightclub and seem appropriate in all settings. Choose your favorite style, and have it delivered to your doorstep. Fedoras are so classic.

Don’t forget to don a spectacular watch on your wrist this spring. These two should do the trick: the shock-resistant Casio G-Shock GIEZ series is a solar atomic watch from Tokyo that offers endurance and sophistication and is environmentally friendly to boot. It has a countdown timer and self-adjusts to different time zones, and can be found at The Ice-Watch is a celeb favorite and offers 10 styles and collections. It’s also water resistant up to 5ATM, has luminous hands and a comfortable silicone band, and is popular in more than 80 countries across the globe. Visit and select the one you like the most; this watch line is both affordable and luxurious.

Make the most of spring with your sartorial style.
