Sartorial needs in Sydney...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Wanted to start a thread as a reference for all shirting and accessorising needs in Sydney. I'll start off with what I think might be the right places in terms of good quality:

David Jones
Casa Adamo - Bespoke suits, ties and shirts (can anyone comment on the quality of the Stefano Ricci ties?)
Charles Nakhle - shirts
Harrolds - a bit overpriced to say the least, but some good ties and cufflinks
JH Cutler - Bespoke suits, ties and shirts

Thats all I can think of at the moment. Would anyone else care to add to the list or comment on the aforementioned places?

Great idea, I'm putting together a list of tailors/designer brands and their contact details in Sydney. These are mainly sourced from Google, The Yellowpages, SF and AAAC. Obvious I have *not* tried all of their products/services: http://www.marcs.com.au/Marcs-Home.html Marcs Comment: quality shirts, I own one of their shirts, took it to Charles for alteration and Charles commented positively on the quality of the fabric. That's one thing I like about Charles, he is never hesitant to compliment his competitors. http://www.henrybucks.com.au/ Henry Bucks Comment: Word On The Street is they are a bunch of snobs. http://nakhleshirtmakers.com.au/ Charles Nakle Shop 1A/69 Phillip street Parammatta, NSW 2150 (02) 9633 4696 Comment: Top quality bespoke shirts start from $200, extra $10 for MOP buttons.

I'll give Shane Rochefort a plug as I think he deserves to be on this list: www.rochefort.com.au; shirts, ties, suits, cufflinks, but mostly for the hand-made neckwear.

PG, thank you for your valuable input. Would you care to elaborate why you think CLAUDE SEBASTIAN MENSWEAR is fail? In addition to carrying Valentino, they also do Dormeuil MTM. They sell Hugo Boss but I think its more of a business decision than anything else, after all they are lots of people who think HG is the best you can buy.
