Paul Smith

For some of the best in British suiting (when you can’t get yourself to London’s Savile Row) you can’t go past the Paul Smith boutique on Collins Street. The brand’s suits may be off the peg, but they’re of such a high quality, serving up impeccable fits and fabrics, that you’ll wonder what the fuss about made-to-measure is anyway.

With the company’s signature multistriple logo also making an appearance in the linings, you can inject a touch of fun into your tailored suits.

P.Johnson

Any guy that tells me he’s getting married, the first thing I tell him is ‘why the hell would you want to do that?’, the second is ‘get a made-to-measure suit from P. Johnson‘. Tom and Patrick will ensure you and your groomsmen look a million bucks in only the finest Italian fabrics.

Expect to pay about $1,800 and above for your made-to-measure suit though (but, rest assured, it will fit like a glove). If you’re on a budget then try their cheaper sister store alternative, Suit Shop, which uses the same quality fabrics but shifts manufacturing to China.
