Xavier J. Biles, a Chicago native and one of five siblings. Xavier attended grade and junior high school in the Chicago public school system, then continued to complete high school in Aurora, IL where his love for the game of basketball grew and earned him a college scholarship. Xavier went on to attend a small Historically Black College and University in Talladega, Alabama—Talladega College where he majored in Business Administration and completed his degree in 2016. While at Talladega, Xavier was accepted into Kappa Aplha Psi Fraternity Inc, a collegiate Greek Fraternity and was Panhellenic President and crowned Mr.Kappa Alpha Psi. Xavier, also a team player of the Talladega College Men’s Basketball Team, along with teammates won three consecutive championship wins and was one of the only HBCUs to advance to the Final Four.
Following graduation in 2016, Xavier moved to New Orleans and attended graduate school at Xavier University, majoring in Educational Leadership. In doing so, Xavier discovered a passion to educate children of underserved populations and backgrounds and was appointed the 5th grade English Language Arts teacher at Success Preparatory in New Orleans. During that year, Xavier decided to use his artistic gift of sewing and turned it into a profitable business by styling clients and sewing men’s accessories. Soon after, under mentorship from a fraternity brother, Xavier invested in his craftsmanship to become one of New Orleans’ few sartorial artists. After one year of teaching and introducing himself to entrepreneurship, Xavier then relocated to Houston, TX where he continued to teach and traveled around the United States to work with clients by way of Chicago, Atlanta, and New Orleans.
In 11 months of living in Houston, Xavier resigned from KIPP public school system and signed his first lease to become an independent sartorial artist and open his first location of business in Houston, TX, J. Biles Sartorial which also includes his casual line, J. Casual and wedding line, J. Couture.
