Local Moms Take the Recession Bully by the Horns!

Ever hear of J. Hilburn? You will now! This company sells luxury apparel and accessories at a significant markdown from upscale clothing retailers by selling through advisors....read on

If you are like many, the past number of years have been financially troubling. Two local women in Long Island took this as an opportunity to say no to the recession and to find an opportunity that allowed them the flexibility to provide financially for their families while still meeting the time demands of young children.

Deborah Scanlan, having stepped away from the corporate world in 2008 to focus on raising her children, felt the need in 2011 to find a way to contribute financially without having to work a set schedule. Scanlan reconnected with an old friend through Facebook and learned about J. Hilburn, a luxury men’s clothing company.  Scanlan’s friend, one of the founding partners, said they were looking to expand into Long Island.

J.Hilburn was founded in 2008 with a vision of turning the luxury men’s retail clothing industry on its head much like e-commerce giants, Amazon and Zappos, have done. J. Hilburn markets directly to their clientele through a nation-wide network of style advisors like Scanlan and team member Dina Seaman. The style advisors act as the main point of contact for their clients and on initial consultations will measure their clients to ensure custom shirts, and made-to-measure suits and trousers are the right fit. Having the ability to schedule appointments that worked around her family’s busy schedule appealed to Scanlan.

In the past 4 years, J. Hilburn has grown its home base of style advisors from the Dallas area to a network of over 1000 nation-wide. The advisors work off of a commission basis and can work as much or as little as they want. Scanlan and Seaman are gearing up for Valentine’s Day and said, “This is a great way to provide a unique gift and service to the special man in your life.” Most men hate to shop and J. Hilburn takes away the fear of buying online by offering a personalized service, guaranteed fit, and product satisfaction all at affordable prices.

“J.Hilburn has given me the opportunity to work with a company that has bucked the trend of declining sales and layoffs”, said Scanlan.  “We are growing by leaps and bounds, which means we are continuously looking for the right people to add to our team.” Seaman said ,”We've made custom affordable; it's luxury within reach."
