Whether you’re looking to suit up for your next formal occasion or seeking out some fresh casual wear for the weekend, Elsternwick Village has a great range of menswear stores.
Nothing beats old-fashioned service in a physical shop, and one thing Elsternwick Village is renowned for is its traditional menswear stores.
If you’re a man looking for some new threads (or a woman looking for a gift for the man in your life), you’ll be sure to find something appropriate including key seasonal pieces, classic knits, and bespoke tailored suits.
Here’s our guide to men’s fashion stores in Elsternwick Village:
Profile by Pino Curcio Tailor Shirtmaker
You can’t go wrong getting a tailor-made suit or shirt from Profile by Pino Curcio.
Hailing from Rome in Italy, Pino has more than 45 years’ experience in tailoring.
He begins with classic fabrics like cotton, linen and silk, adds the cuffs and collars, then carefully chooses the finishing touches to make shirts unique and customised.
From bespoke shirts and suits for business to everyday and special occasion clothes, you’ll be in fine hands with Pino.
Hattams Mens and Boys Wear
Another classic Elsternwick Village store, Hattams Mens and Boys Wear offers a range of both menswear and boys’ clothing.
Established in 1872, the store has been run by the same family for generations and they understand the importance of quality clothing.
The store is famous for being one of the last locations in Australia to run a ‘cash railway’ – an elastic-powered device that shoots cash in a canister through an overhead wire system to a central register – which provides interest and entertainment to young folks visiting the store.
Lionel Meerkin Menswear
Catering to “the young and the young at heart”, Lionel Meerkin Menswear offers a range of menswear, from shirts to jeans to tops.
The store stocks a variety of local and international labels, including Meyer and Bugatti.
Creswick Woollen Mills
Creswick Woollen Mills is an Australian-made luxury wool goods store renowned for their clothing and accessories made from alpaca, cashmere and merino wool.
When it comes to menswear, Creswick Woollen Mills understands luxurious style – you’ll find smart knits, vests and thermals in natural fibres, making it the ideal store to stock up on your winter woollies.
