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.

Fraying 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 THE 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.

HILTL zipper are 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 buttonhole has an eyelet including a cross bar, which keeps the button perfectly seated. The wrapped shank sits in the eyelet 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 sit 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 along the width and stable in length.

Hiltl Principles

9/10 HATED BY CUTTING-EDGE PICKPOCKETS.

HILTL business trousers and Five Pockets have a closable ‘Mobile Safe’ pocket within the pocket. Ideal for your mobile phone, but far from ideal for pickpockets.

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 let out. Nobody needs to know.
