JOE BLACK

Suit shop­ping can be thirsty work. But as luck would have it, Joe Black is here to help you and your grooms­men, with a range of beers and whiskies on hand in its Mel­bourne stores. The brand of­fers a dis­count of 15 per cent for groups of more than three peo­ple and can also pro­vide cater­ing for larger par­ties (at no ex­tra cost, mind). The brand’s made-to-mea­sure ser­vice lets you choose ev­ery­thing from your suit lin­ing, right down to the thread on the but­ton­holes. Be­cause that’s im­por­tant. joe­black.com.au

OS­CAR HUNT

Os­car Hunt doesn’t do off the rack. Ev­ery­thing is fully tai­lored – suits, shirts, vests, trousers, over­coats – and with more than 4000 fab­rics on of­fer, there’s bound to be some­thing you like. Get­ting your very own suit is a six-week process, with three in-store ft­tings – an ini­tial meet­ing to choose fab­rics; a sec­ond at the four-week mark to try on the gar­ments for the frst time; and a third at six weeks to en­sure it fts like a glove. If you’ve got the time, it’s well worth it. Af­ter all, if there’s an oc­ca­sion to make that ex­tra ef­fort, your wed­ding day is prob­a­bly it. os­carhunt.com.au

BRENT WIL­SON

Now with stores in Syd­ney, Mel­bourne and Bris­bane, Aussie de­signer (and for­mer GQ Fash­ion De­signer of the Year win­ner) Brent Wil­son has long pro­vided be­spoke ser­vices. He of­fers the choice of seven dif­fer­ent styles to suit any dress code – from tai­lored suit­ing to for­mal wear – with a choice of more than 500 fab­rics, plus a range of lin­ings and other de­tails. If time is an is­sue, the brand’s ready-to-wear ser­vice also pro­vides a wide va­ri­ety of suit­ing styles in a range of pre­mium fab­rics. Quick, sim­ple, stylish. bren­twil­son.com.au

MJ BALE

The MJ Bale Dress­ing Room is the ul­ti­mate spot to en­sure you and your grooms­men are look­ing sharp on your big day. There are a hand­ful of them dot­ted around Mel­bourne and Syd­ney, where you can get your mates to­gether, sip on beer, whisky or Cham­pagne – oh, and get a cus­tom suit ft­ted. You can choose be­tween thou­sands of dif­fer­ent suit­ing fab­rics, plus fnish­ing touches like but­tons, mono­grammed de­tails and lapel widths. It’s one of the best ways to turn buy­ing your wed­ding day outft into the ex­clu­sive ex­pe­ri­ence it should be. We rec­om­mend book­ing an ap­point­ment as far in ad­vance as you can. mjbale.com
