Masks: The New Fashion Statement

Who’d have thought that two years ago a simple mask would become an essential component of our wardrobe? Whilst handy, the run-of-the-mill disposable masks are okay but they aren’t particularly comfortable, become odorous quickly and are never on hand when you need one. We have found a style that is really good and unlike the […]

In general, neat casual, often also referred to as smart casual,  means neat chinos or a pair of dark-coloured jeans with a shirt, a blazer, and a pair of leather shoes.

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!

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!
