The 10 HILTL principles

The HILTL principle.

The target: A HILTL shall fit like a made to measure.
Therefore, HILTL follows fixed principles.

Hiltl Principles

1/10 EITHER AS GOOD AS TAILOR-MADE. OR TAILOR-MADE.

Having six fits to choose from it´s safe to assume that everyone will find a HILTL that will fit like it´s tailor-made. If not, just use our bespoke-service.

Hiltl Principles

2/10 WHY SEAMS SHOULD BE ALWAYS SEAMED.

Fringing is something a HILTL only knows from hearsay. Because we turn our extra fabric up towards the seam and then sew it up lavishly.

Hiltl Principles

3/10 NO MATTER WHICH COLOUR: HILTL TROUSERS ARE GREEN.

According to the Greenpeace Detox Guidelines 32 fashion brands worldwide intend to replace pollutants with natural substances by 2020. HILTL already does that today.

Hiltl Principles

4/10 THE ZIPPER WON´T TURN INTO A RIPPER.

A HILTL zipper is especially produced for us and made from fine toothed metal. We do appreciate a zipper that runs smoothly even after washing or dry cleaning.

Hiltl Principles

5/10 WITH OUR FABRICS WE DON´T GO AGAINST THE GRAIN.

For our HILTL trousers we stitch using the finest materials from Italy and Germany with equal grain direction. So that the shimmer and pattern remain identical on the front and back.

Hiltl Principles

6/10 A BUTTON BELONGS IN THE EYE.

A HILTL button hole has an eye including a cross bar tack, which keeps the button perfectly seated. The wrapped shank sits in the eye eliminating fabric stretching.

Hiltl Principles

7/10 FOR YOUR LONG TERM ENJOYMENT WE DON´T LEAVE ANYTHING TO CHANCE.

Before the stitching we test the wearing in of our fabrics and consider that in the cut. So that the trousers even after repeated washing sits perfectly.

Hiltl Principles

8/10 OUR FABRIC CONFORMS TO YOU.

For a pair of HILTL trousers all fabric elements are cut in accordance with the grain. The high quality of our materials is worth it: The fabric falls more elegantly and remains elastic in width and stable in length.

Hiltl Principles

9/10 HATED BY LEADING-EDGE POCKET THIEVES.

HILTL business trousers and Five Pockets have a closeable »Mobile Safe pocket« within the pocket. Ideal for your mobile phone, but far from ideal for pocket thieves.

Hiltl Principles

10/10 IF WITH THE GROWTH OF YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE YOUR GIRTH GROWS TOO.

Even the inner seam fabric at the back of our trousers is generously calculated. This ensures that your favourite trousers can be widened. Nobody needs to know.
