Browns Mensland Geelong’s Leading Menswear Specialist Partners with WDEA

WDEA Works Geelong has been open for business for 12 months. Over the past year people have been dropping in for a coffee and a chat, our friendly Geelong team help jobseekers find suitable work that meets their needs. Disability Recruitment advice is what our Geelong branch specialises in.

Over the past few months Denise has been working with Simy who has been looking to return to the workforce after a battle with illness. Simy came across WDEA Works online reviews and visited our office for some recruitment advice. WDEA Works Employment Consultant Denise, knew Simy would be a perfect fit for a local retailer who had been looking for someone to assist with inventory management on a weekly basis, as this task needed additional resources.

Brown’s Mensland is a Geelong apparel institution, located in central Geelong. Owner Cameron Brown had previously spoken with WDEA Works and advised that he was really looking for someone who could assist with inventory management on a weekly basis, as this task was currently being undertaken by himself.

“The best part about having Simy around is the confidence I get that the inventory is accurate … so I’m not spending my time second guessing the reporting.’ – Cameron

WDEA Works Disability Employment Consultant Denise knew that Simy would be a perfect fit for Cameron’s business as she had previously completed a Bachelor of Commerce. Simy however was not so sure, her illness had drained all of her energy and shaken her confidence. Denise worked closely with Simy and supported her in her transition back to work. Simy is now a valued member of the Brown’s team and returning to work has helped build her confidence and given her a brighter outlook for the years ahead.

“I was very excited, I was a bit nervous, there were up’s and down’s in my life for the last couple of years. Working after so long, I was very happy” – Simy

Such a great local family business that’s given caring, friendly service to our family for years. Big thanks to Wendy and Cameron for fitting out our son Liam with his first suit. At over 2mtrs it wasn’t an easy task, they helped him look and feel great walking out with a smile.

A huge thank you to Brown's Mensland especially Cameron. He went above and beyond to help suit my husband and 5 groomsmen.
From head to toe including socks, belts, shoes, pants, vests and jackets. The suits were perfect and looked great on the day.
Would highly recommend to anyone and will definitely use them again in the future.
Thanks Cameron!

Needed a wedding suit and went into Mensland first, then went and compared some other stores before I realised I made a mistake by leaving in the first place. Cameron was wonderful from the very beginning, don't go anywhere else!

Just celebrated my sons confirmation. Came into the store. Service was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Both my boys looked like red carpet movie stars! Recommend Brown's Mensland to everyone. Go in and ask for 'The Dude'! You won't be disappointed!

Patrick Mckay browns-mensland

I needed something slick for my job interview. So i went and saw the great prople at Browns Mensland. Cameron showed me around and helped me get a few options for that important shirt and tie combo. He took the time to give me different looks and options and let me decide. It was quicker than i thought it would be and i was on my way. Plus i was successful in the interview!!! Thanks Browns Mensland. I'll be back soon.

Thanks so much to Cameron for organising our boys' groomsman outfits. With some logistical difficulties involving groomsmen from all over Victoria, Cameron was nothing but patient with us! The extra detail when it came to accessories and preparation for our day was nothing short of impeccable. My husband has found 'his shop' for any future formal needs. You will definitely see us again

JL Steel Wedding Suit Testimonial Geelong

Recently my son was a part of a bridal party and on the day of the wedding the suit that was ordered for him didn't fit. I rang Brown's Mensland on the morning of the wedding and asked if they could assist. With no hesitation they asked us to swing in and they would sort it out. Which they did, they found a suitable suit, fitted him and sent us on our way. The best service I have ever received, they made what started out as a stressful morning, a perfect day! Thank you very much!
