Christmas Cloakroom voucher

Our new Cloakroom vouchers have arrived from the printer, so if you're stumped for a present this year we can box something up for you, and with any dollar amount you'd like.

New window Surry Hills

A new window for Surry Hills. The shops around us are now doing battle in the Christmas decoration stakes. Inspired by Benja and his recent work for Hermes, we decided to do something a little different. Not to mention the slightly smaller than Hermes' budget we have to work with.

Cloakroom James st - Now Open!

The doors are open today on our latest Cloakroom.

Located on James st (Fortitude Valley, Bris) the new store will allow us to present a larger range of our ready-to-wear Pistols at Dawn pieces.
And in the coming weeks we'll have our in-house tailored service (shirting, jackets, suiting) up and running.
For those of you in the city our Queen st store will remain open, and I will continue to be here 6 days.

On the rack we have 10 new styles of shirt, 4 styles of light / unconstructed jacket as well as shorts and pants.
Also on offer we have our roman sandals, knitted ties (from London), bow ties (Le Noeud Papillon) and pocket squares.
In production at the moment we have 2 new styles of jeans and drop of our t-shirts in 100% NZ wool. We're hoping for both of these to be in all our stores in the next week or 2.

Our newest member of the team, Leif, will be running the new store for us. Leif will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge, and his understanding of menswear will be a great asset to the team.

Thanks also to Damien who has been working on a new piece of art just for the shop.
It looks fantastic, though I'm sure once it's priced it'll be snapped up in no time.

Cloakroom #3 - James st Brisbane

It's been a very busy week here in Brisbane as we've been working around the clock on the fitout for a new store we're about to be open on James St. It's slowly starting to take shape and we're hoping it will be open for business as of tomorrow.

There's been too many nights of painting til midnight, but it has been very exciting to see a cream coloured shell slowly develop into our latest Cloakroom installment.

Working tirelessly has been our support team of Mark (who's just realised his talent for painting), James (ideas man / expert silicone applicator), Leif (heavy lifting / handyman all-rounder) and Eleisha, who when she's not been painting has been keeping us fed and stocked with beer.
Thanks guys, we greatly appreciate your time and efforts.

Stay tuned for more...

Kid in a candy store

New season Grenson samples arrived this morning and I already have some favourites. For everyone who has been hanging out for this season stay tuned. We will order new styles as well as top ups of the classics for both Sydney and Brisbane.

Fin Review

It is always special to get a mention in the Financial Review magazine, and Andrew and I eagerly await each edition.
A great read and always beautifully styled by Virginia Van Heythuysen. A privilege to rub shoulders if only on the pages of the magazine with Dries van Noten, Gucci and Ann Demeulemeester.

Sydney Magazine December

Nice little spot in the Sydney magazine this month. Every little bit helps in a new city.
