Navigating through Melbourne’s shopping strips can be a timely feat, so whether you’re a born and raised Melbournian, or simply a tourist skipping through – we’ve compiled a list of our favourite menswear stores that are sure to impress.
101 Collins St. Melbourne
A cult- hero within the Australian menswear scene. This space showcases the finest international brands there are. It’s one of the most expensive boutiques in Melbourne but you pay for what you get – design and quality.
167 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
The latest venture by Marco Siracusa (previously Harrolds) and Wendy Jiang from Gucci. The space was meticulously crafted by COX architecture with no expenses spared and spans over 400 meters in an old Edwardian warehouse. One needs simply to see it to believe it.
6a/ 274 Flinders Lane, Melbourne
Founded by twin brothers Brian and Vincent Wu, Incu is the shopping destination we’ve all come to love. Brands include Acne Studios, A.P.C, Paul Smith and more. They strike the perfect balance between affordability and cool. Think Scandinavian-chic.
320 Collins St, Melbourne
A Melbourne classic, located in the heart of the CBD precinct. This place oozes class – whether you’re after any kind of suit, jacket, coat or knitwear, Henry Bucks probably has it. The only difficult thing is deciding what to buy, as there’s so much to sort through.
Room 318/37 Swanston St, Melbourne
For something a little different to the rest of this list, we introduce Calder Sartoria. It’s a rather small space but what it lacks in size, makes up for in quality and approach. Calder focuses on unique, made to measure suits which are all handcrafted in Naples. They also stock some of the most renowned menswear accessories with a tastefully curated selection featuring Viola Milano and TBD eyewear. Read here for Calder’s approach to craftsmanship.
Royal Arcade, 314 Little Collins St, Melbourne
Hard to find and hard to leave- the impressive lineup of labels and discrete staircase leading to the Royal Arcade seems like something out of the city of love. The aptly named Parisian boutique will leave you wrapped in designer brands like Balmain, Givenchy and Alexander Mcqueen- but don’t expect to fork out a lot.
