Style Savvy: A wardrobe tailored just for you.

Just ten quick measurements can provide you with a perfectly fitting custom wardrobe, adding coordination to your closet and confidence to your step. “It is the ease of dressing. It is a very straight forward service. We set you up with key pieces and can build from that a few times a year. Everything coordinates,” Roberta Paglia explains. Roberta is a stylist for J. Hilburn, a sophisticated men’s lifestyle brand.

J. Hilburn began twelve years ago in Dallas, Texas as a custom clothing line for men. Today, with 2,000 stylists across the U.S., the brand offers everything from formal wear and custom suiting to casual, luxury sportswear, all fabricated from high-quality Italian fabrics. Four seasonal collections are released each year and offer a variety of price points to meet most clients’ budget. Custom suits start at $600, an affordable exchange for the perfect fit. “You’re going to get completely custom clothes and beautiful Italian fabrics, but the price point is the exact same at any popular store,” adds Roberta. J Hilburn is a concierge service, meaning your stylist will travel to your home or office for meetings or deliveries of new pieces.

As a stylist, Roberta finds joy in crafting the perfect looks for her clients. With a background in sales and event planning, her creative edge fits perfectly into styling. Revamping your closet and developing this stylist relationship is completely catering to your needs. How do you go to work? What do you wear on the weekend? With a stylist, these looks can be tailored to your body. The best part is, after just one or two quick meetings, new clients never have to step foot into a store again. “It’s this professional relationship where I’m helping them by providing a service that makes their lives so much easier,” notes Roberta. Looking to dress your wedding party? J. Hilburn can style your groomsmen from head to toe. “Once a guy is in a custom suit, you should just see their eyes—they are so happy,” says Roberta. 

Kevin Grimes, President of Grimes and Company, an investment management firm that manages over $2.5 billion of client assets, has been a long-time client of Roberta with J. Hilburn. Grimes credits Roberta for creating his closet comprised of style, quality, and convenience. “It is super convenient. I don’t want to go to a store or try anything on. I want to know it’s going to fit right and is the highest quality. I want to know I will look good, and with J. Hilburn it’s so easy,” says Grimes. 

Based in Needham, Roberta caters to Massachusetts and the New England region, meaning that picking out today’s sharpest looks, or a fun, casual outfit for work, all with the expertise of your own stylist is easier than ever.
