Time Out Melbourne

With a tagline on their website simply stating ‘We make nice clothes’, you can be sure that this Melbourne-based brand is all about well-made, understated garments with none of the fiddly impractical trappings that you might find elsewhere. Their design studio is based above the Gertrude Street boutique, which opened in 2012 as the brainchild of British couple Sam Rush and Henry Allum. Despite the brand’s international growth, there’s a definite ear-to-the-ground influence here – the racks of men’s marbled T-shirts and turtle neck sweaters as well as women’s collared shirts and tapered wool pants reflect the minimalist, sport-prep aesthetic often seen on the leafy street. Price-wise, you’ll be in for a surprise: a skirt, shirt or pair of chinos isn’t likely to set you back more than $100.
