A Style Consultation is simply a private shopping experience, where we help you create your own personal style from our Ready-to-Wear collections.

At your first appointment, if we don’t already have them, we will take all of your measurements as well as explore with you, which styles, shapes, fabrics and colours you prefer.

Once we have an idea of your personal preferences, we will guide you through the collections with professional style advice and make a selection of items for you to try on – and we’ll fit your chosen items for alteration if required.

If your purchase is good to go, you can take it with you, or if you prefer, we will pack your items and deliver to your desk before the end of the day.

Items requiring alteration will be ready for collection or delivery within 7 days.

Now we have your personal profile, we’ll have a selection of suits and coordinating items ready and waiting for you at your next appointment that we know you’ll love.

You can book your appointment online or call us on +61 2 9235 0701.

The combinations are endless and your suit will be completely unique.

We’ll help you decide on the best styling options for you, taking into account your body shape, colouring and how and where you will be wearing your suit.

Our lead time is 6-8 weeks from initial appointment to final fitting. Particular fabric choices may cause a variance to this due to availability – you will be advised of final timings once your order is placed.

For wedding suits – especially with multiple orders, it’s best to allow 12 weeks or more.

All our suits are made in our own factory in Indonesia. We have moved all of our equipment from New Zealand to Indonesia, along with our Quality Control team and CMT ( Cut make and Trim ) tailors.

There are over 1000 fabrics for you to chose from, sourced from a variety of mills across Europe and China. Dino Filarte is one of our main suppliers and a great example of the calibre of mills we use – you can read more info on the Dino Filarte website

We have a variety of fabrics, weights, linings, button, every combination you can think off we can make it for you

OK, in a nutshell, the higher the Super number, the finer the yarn, however finer yarns create a more delicate fabric. You really need to look after a Super 180 suit, so it’s probably not so practical for a work suit, but great for a special occasion.

We carry fabrics from Super 100 to Super 180 and recommend anything from a Super 100 to Super 130 for general wear to ensure breathability and endurance.

We say it’s a three stage fitting process.

Your first appointment goes for 45mins – 1 hour, during which we will explore with you all fabric options, design elements, pricing, and take all measurements necessary.

The second fitting is scheduled for around 6 weeks later to fit your constructed garments. If further adjustment is required after the second fitting, these will be made within 7-14 days.

A third and final fitting will then be arranged for you try on your garments after final alterations are made and if you’re happy with everything you’re good to go.

If you are working towards a specific date then we will determine up front whether we are able to work within your time frame.

All of your measurements will be kept on our system for future appointments.

It does cost a little more, but two pairs of trousers will significantly prolong the life of your suit. Trousers take the highest wear in a suit, which means after a while they can become a little shiny and discoloured.

We do recommend a second pair of trousers for business suits that get a lot of wear. Regularly rotating your two pairs of trousers will extend the life of your chosen suit.

It’s always best to book an appointment to ensure you have our undivided attention as we close the showroom for the duration of your fitting, so you have the place to yourself. Booking ahead means we can prepare everything for your appointment in advance to save you time.

However, if you happen to be in the area, please do drop in and if we can fit you in right away, we will always accommodate – if we are already booked, we can make an appointment to suit you at a later date.

You can book your appointment online or call us on +61 2 9235 0701.

Yes, of course! We are open Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5:30pm.

Please be aware that we close the showroom for booked appointments to give our customers absolute privacy and personal attention.

Out of hours appointments are available on request.

Of course you can – make it a social occasion and shop with a friend or two – bring your partners if you’d like.

We can organize appointments out of hours if that suits you better. We’ll keep you refreshed with a selection of wines, beers, spirits and nibbles.

We often organise events like this to help our customers create their wardrobes for holidays, cruises, business trips, family occasions – or even just to shop their seasonal wardrobes in one go.

Oh yes! It’s one of our favourite things to do.

We find it’s best to book an appointment for you, the bride and groom in the first instance, so we can listen and gain an understanding of your vision for the big day and explore with you the sartorial style you’d like to go for.

Then we’ll arrange a group appointment to kit out the key members of your wedding party.

See our wedding pages for more details.

Our lead time is 6-7 weeks from initial appointment to final fitting. Particular fabric choices may cause a variance to this due to availability – you will be advised of final timings once your order is placed.

We accept EFTPOS, all major credit cards and, of course, cash.

Or you can pay over four equal instalments, due every two weeks with Afterpay. Please note Afterpay is only available for online purchases.

We suggest you find a good dry cleaner and make sure you check their reputation up front. Always dry clean the whole suit together. If you have 2 pairs of trousers, make sure you send both trousers and the jacket all together.

Please DO NOT wear one pair of pants for 6 months (with a 2 trouser suit) then wear the other, as you will see a difference in colour between the jacket and trousers from sun light and day to day wearing.

We suggest you put a ‘number 1’ and ‘number 2’ in the label of the trousers and alternate.

We also recommend investing in a few suits that you can alternate throughout the week, which will give you more wear from them during the course of the year.

No suit is going to last long if you wear it every day.

A good tip is to hang your whole suit in the bathroom when taking a shower. The steam will clean and freshen it up it for free.

If you spill something on your suit, send it for dry cleaning asap.

We recommend dry cleaning once every 3 months.

Never wear your jacket while driving – it will become crumpled and worn where your seat belt comes into contact with the fabric.

Avoid leaving your jacket out in direct sunlight for long periods of time – this will fade the colour.

Finally, we recommend that you always hang your jacket on a good quality coat hanger to ensure the shoulder stays in shape.

We wouldn’t really call it a bar exactly, but we do have wine and beers chilling in the bar fridge, plus a selection of spirits and red wine too. We like you to relax and enjoy your appointment and we find having a glass or two makes the whole experience a little more enjoyable. Whether shopping or not, you are always welcome to drop in and enjoy a quick drink with me on your way home anytime – no appointment necessary!

We regularly host group appointments after hours with drinks and nibbles, so please ask any time if you would like us to arrange something for you.

Of course we can! We’ve spend the last 20 years fitting tailoring and we’ve developed an expert eye when it comes to knowing exactly what will suit you. Our genuine passion and enthusiasm will be evident from the moment you enter our showroom. We will expertly guide you through the whole process, determine whether you prefer to select from our ready-to-wear collection or made-to-measure service.

We’ll advise you on the colours, fits and fabrics that will suit you best and help you create your own personal style.
