The following article has been produced in partnership with M.J.Bale
Uncrushable, flexible, water-repellent. These are words that you wouldn’t normally associate with a premium suit, but it would seem that an Australian menswear name has found a way to do it.
‘Tech-Tailoring’ is what local label M.J. Bale is heralding as the next game-changer in menswear. As part of their latest collection, the high-performance suits boast an array of advancements never before seen in fine merino suiting.
The threads also play perfectly into the lifestyle of men whose schedules are often dominated by little time to spare and sporadic travel plans. The solution then was simple: craft a suit specifically for the modern man who wins at life on the go.
Why exactly? Because looking your A-game in record time is the future of menswear and M.J. Bale have put themselves at the forefront of the game.
Here’s how they did it.
Made To Accompany Your Greatest Pursuits
Traversing between airports, slinking from meeting to meeting and treating an unimpressed partner to a fancy dinner for not being around to feed the dog is all part of a modern man’s trials.
M.J. Bale’s contribution to your winning formula is simply a suit that allows you to stay agile without compromising an iota of style.
That means no matter what kind of man you are or where your pursuits take you, M.J. Bale’s Tech-Tailoring pieces are up for the challenge thanks to ease of movement, comfort and breathability and weather resistance built-in.
“M.J. Bale’s tech-tailoring collection is for active guys who want to stay formally dressed while on-the-go, but need ease of movement, comfort and breathability in all kinds of weather conditions”

The Technological Solution
We’re not going to bore you with sweeping hyperbole or jargon. M.J. Bale’s Tech-Tailoring collection revolves around the five main pillars:
- Water-repellent merino wool suits
- Flexible, natural-stretch and crease-resistant merino wool suits
- Crease resistant, washable and moisture-wicking merino wool shirts
- Non-iron, easy-care cotton shirts
- Uncrushable merino wool travel Macintosh
Each garment is created to ensure it performs within these strict guidelines but there’s more to it than that.
M.J. Bale’s Acqua range of water and crease repellant suits are intuitively crafted from tropical weight Super 130s Merino wool, a fabric woven in Biella, Italy.
This approach to engineered manufacturing means that the wearer remains dry during drizzles whilst the need to steam or press your suit after a day’s wear is drastically decreased.
The label’s Mooving suits also follow this same blueprint with fabric woven in Biella, Italy, that is made up of 98% superfine virgin merino wool and 2% elastane.
The result? A crease-resistant suit possessing natural-stretch abilities that brings with it a degree of flexibility never before experienced in such a garment.
Innovation even runs deep in M.J. Bale’s shirting department with their range of merino wool shirts. Italian-woven woolen fabric is used here since it boasts superior breathability and moisture-wicking alongside more pragmatic features like wrinkle-free wearability and machine washability.
Whoever said that 100% merino wool suits and shirts couldn’t play nice were wrong. Warmer winters and cooler summers, meet your new friend, M.J. Bale.
A Maintenance-free Wardrobe
Make an enemy of the humble iron with M.J. Bale’s Dry’N’Fly shirts. These aren’t your usual run of the mill cotton shirts with a fancy name as their technical structure ensures that zero ironing is required.
The wearer’s only job? Throw it in the wash (nicely) and wait for it to catch some sweet, sweet rays. A dry and wrinkle-free shirt is ready fly out the door on your back when you are.
Lest you forget that the weather has made a turn for the worse and another helping layer is required. Enter M.J Bale’s latest creation, the uncrushable and water-repellent merino wool travel Macintosh.
Bring it with you as you traverse the globe, crush it in the bottom of the luggage or leave it hanging off a handle for days. The M.J. Bale Macintosh will simply bounce back to its crease-free original form like a possessed garment – in a good way.
Travel In Style Without A Care
Function, performance, reliability, versatility. Never has the Australian menswear scene been more aligned with the needs of the modern man.
M.J. Bale have you covered no matter what trouble you get yourself into.
