Australia might not be the first country anyone associates with tailoring and classic menswear, but Melbourne has a greater range than most other countries.
This is partly because it has clear seasons, with a few weeks where something more than a T-shirt is required. And partly down to the city's culture, which is commonly referred to as the most European in Australia. There are many galleries, shops and (especially) cafes in which to wear more style-conscious clothing.
Melbourne's remote location also means more independent shops, which makes it perfect for this series. Although most designer brands have branches, it's easier for home-grown brands to set up and find a local following.
The worldwide resurgence of crafted menswear has also led to an increased interest in local tailors, shirtmakers and shoemakers.
Are you located in Melbourne, Victoria, planning a wedding and looking for suit tailors? When you are planning your big day, you probably want everything just perfect. One of the best ways to make sure that it all turns out the way you dreamed it to select every vendor yourself personally. This way, you can choose the ultimate location, the best entertainment and the most delicious food, and craft your ideal wedding day.

Germanicus Suit Tailors Melbourne
Love - Passion - Dedication - Perfection
We're proud to be making suits & shirts the traditional bespoke way at Germanicus, the same way suits & shirts have been handcrafted for more than a hundred years. Together, with your very own pattern that is hand-drawn specifically for you and reminiscent of what you can expect at places like Savile Row.
We find that suits constructed in the traditional bespoke way and fitted perfectly with your very own pattern and hand finished with a floating canvas hand sewn on the inside of your jacket, are works of art that are made to last.
With our constant pursuit for perfection, many attributes such as love, passion and dedication are all key in what makes up the Germancios DNA and have played a big role in our recipe for success since 1999.
Today, together with our visionary John Tellis and our close-knit, talented stylist, artists and craftsmen, it's become a way of life to perfectly fit a masterpiece for each client, that not only speaks for itself but represents your personality and inner gentlemen exquisitely.
If there is ever an excuse to get a bespoke suit in your life, what better occasion than your wedding!
Your wedding day is the one day where you will be photographed more than any other day in your life, and all of your memories will be documented in video and wedding albums. The Grooms suit should also be the best fitted and most unique in the room, and much better than all of the guests attending the wedding.
If you think that you will get the perfect wedding suit off the rack, let us assure you that you will not be the most unique or the best fit in the room.
Think about it, when you go to a shop you have possibly 10 suits to choose from, then finding the one that fits best might narrow those options down to 5, you will certainly need to get this altered as well (It's like buying a new car and taking it straight to the panel beater). If you choose Germanicos Bespoke Tailors you have a choice of over 7,000 unique fabrics coming from the best fabric mills in Italy, England & France, multiply that by the hundreds of design options available to you, you can be sure of being unique and well fitted no matter your body type.

Henry Bucks Suit Tailors Melbourne
Henry Buck was born on the 26th November 1860 in Clerkenwell, London. He was the second child of Thomas, master electro-plater and later a corn factor. He moved to Yorkshire and was brought up in Danby. Henry learnt the soft goods trade at the age of thirteen and suffering from tuberculosis, migrated to New South Wales in 1887 finding a job as a grazier's farmhand at 'Manfred' owned by the Tailor family near Euston. His fiancée Laura Jane Rose joined him but was repelled by life on a sheep station and persuaded Henry to move to Melbourne. On the 25th June 1887 at Armadale, the couple married with Presbyterian forms.
Henry worked as a bookbinder's assistant, losing his job in 1890 after having the ambition to ask for a pay rise, probably a shilling a week. He went into business with a friend and found to his dismay that he had been duped. Rather than take legal action against his friend, Henry took over the shirting fabric shop, the fabrics and equipment. With Laura as the bookkeeper and two machinists, he learned the trade of shirt making, opening a shop on the 25th August 1890 in the fashionable Queen's Walk-off Swanston Street and Collins Street Henry Buck Pty Ltd.
By the turn of the century, Henry had built a big factory on Melbourne's outskirts to manufacture shirts, pyjamas, and ties. He also diversified into warehousing and wholesaling and founded Wallace, Buck and Goodes Pty Ltd, the London Tie Co Pty Ltd, Beaucaire Knitting Mills Pty Ltd and Eyelets Pty Ltd.
Henry was a respected figure in Melbourne where he belonged to the Commercial Travellers' Association, the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria, the Melbourne Cricket Club and the Master Drapers' Association of Victoria, and London, where he was a member of the Portland Club. He was an authority on bridge and solo and belonged to the Melbourne Philharmonic Society.
King George V appointed Henry Buck an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1920 for services to the community and business. As well as managing a business involved in retail, manufacturing and wholesaling, Henry had become famous for administering to thousands of returned troops, ferrying them around and providing food and shelter throughout the 1914-1918 war.
Henry Buck died on 7th May 1933 in Marylebone, London and was survived by his wife and daughter.
The company moved in 1963 to the new Colonial Mutual Building, Collins Street, where the old store's plush atmosphere was re-created and remained at 320 Collins Street, Melbourne. There are now three stores in Melbourne, one in Sydney and thriving online shopping business.
The company has strengthened its' position in the market place over the years through expansion and consolidation, entrepreneurial initiatives and focusing on its' 35-65 age group of affluent, corporate and professional, smartly dressed clients. Henry Bucks is one of the world's great menswear stores and perhaps one of the last of the great menswear retail specialists to remain in family hands to this day.
Made To Measure
For the past 129 years, Henry Bucks has produced custom-made clothing for many of Australia's best-dressed men. Our strict focus on quality and attention means that we will deliver a quality, luxury garment that we guarantee will fit you perfectly.
Our Made-to-Measure garments, or "Su Misura" as the Italians like to call it, are produced to your selections. With assistance from our trained specialists, you can select your fabric, lining, construction, and design. The options are endless to let you create a garment that is uniquely personal to you.

Review our Henry Sartorial, Canali, Dormeuil & Ermenegildo Zegna Made-To-Measure options.
We have various types of appointments to ensure that we are correctly catering to your needs.
We'll go over fabrics and design options in a Fitting appointment before we measure you up for your made-to-measure garment. If you have any reference images for the look you are trying to achieve, bring them along with you to your fitting. We will help guide you as to which fabric, fit, and aesthetic are appropriate for your body type and preference. Our stylists will guide you to the best selections to suit your needs. You will try on sample garments to ensure your suit has your desired look and feel during your fitting.
In your Try-on appointment (about 6 weeks after your fitting) we'll be reviewing the fit and finish of your made-to-measure garment. Almost all of our customers will be able to take their garments home with them after this fitting if you're not local to one of our stores than we can happily ship your garment directly to you and skip this step.
In a Wedding Consultation, your stylist will review your wedding information to help you achieve the desired look. After discussing the perfect design, we will send a quote with all of the costs attributed to making your wedding suits. Along with the price, we'll also give you a break down on the timing. We'll provide you with the dates you'll need to be measured, make your purchase, and have your final fitting. There are no additional costs for wedding suits, but we do ask for more time to ensure a seamless process. We ask you to come in for consultation no later than 12 weeks before your wedding date. All quotes are applicable for 90 days.

Steel and May do not operate out of a 'shop front', rather we visit customers by appointment at their home or office.
Steel and May clients select from an extensive range of fine English, Italian and Scottish cloth. Many of the highest quality cloths are produced from Australian wool and are woven in Europe.
Typically the suit fabrics are graded for both weight (measured in ounces) and wool fineness (measured in 'Super' numbers). The heavier wool cloth is more durable and will tend to last longer than the lighter cloth, but may be uncomfortable in the Australian summer. We recommend fabric weights in the range of 9oz up to 12oz for everyday wear.
Typically, wool is graded from Super 80s up to Super 200s. New technology and breeding techniques are allowing us access to finer wools than ever before. However, these ultra-fine fabrics are not always ideal for everyday use as they are not as durable as the slightly coarser wools. Steel and May recommend fabrics from Super 100s up to Super 140s for everyday wear.
Our range varies every season and includes classic patterns and timeless styles of Pinstripe, Chalk stripe, Herringbone, Prince of Wales, Birdseye, Houndstooth and plains. From here, colours are added to bring in different variations and fabric choices.

Bespoke Wedding Tuxedo
A bespoke tuxedo is what your wedding deserves. Traditionally the fabric would be a wool barathea, which has a little more weight creating a beautiful, elegant drape. The silk satin or ribbed silk lapels highlight the tuxedo.
Recently we have created a one of a kind dinner suit featuring wool and mohair blends. The beauty of mohair is it plays on the light, giving a particular luminescence, which differs from pure wools.
The shape of the tuxedo lapel is yours for the choosing. The single-breasted coat can have either a peak lapel or a curved shawl lapel, and the same goes for the double-breasted tuxedo jacket. The look of the dinner suit can also change with the choice of a vent.
The beauty of choosing a tuxedo is that it is magnificent for all black tie or formal events in the future.
Bespoke Tuxedo Shirts
A bespoke tuxedo shirt from our Clarendon Street workroom will complete your dinner suit to ultimate perfection.
Investing in a bespoke shirt allows you the unique opportunity to create a shirt with the most enhancing cut to fit your silhouette.
Other design details include fly or bib fronts, mother of pearl buttons or stud options, collar design, cuff styles and the personal touch of your initials if you desire.
Sarti works with a feast of the finest Italian kinds of cotton from which we create your most original dinner shirt.
With decades of experience, we are masters in perfecting the length, curve, style and button placement to ensure a flattering powerful cut with exquisitely balanced proportions.
Morning suits are typically worn as a three-piece suit with a double-breasted waistcoat to contrast the single-breasted front. The long-tailed back elongates the body and brings an air of elegance.

Tips for Choosing a Groom's Wedding Suit
Know the Theme of Your Wedding
Is it super formal and traditional, or is it more casual and trendy? Knowing the vibe of your wedding day will help you determine whether you should go for a full-on tuxedo, or opt for a sharp suit (or something even less casual).
What Kind of Style Are You Going For?
Once you know your wedding's vibe (tux versus suit, traditional versus trendy), you can get into more specifics about the exact look and feel of your suit or tuxedo to match. For example, if you're opting for a suit, there are several different styles, patterns, and colours to choose from, including everything from herringbone or plaid to navy blue or Red. While tuxes typically come in only black or white, you might consider velvet and satin details. Of course, whether you're wearing a suit or tux, it's best to blend in with the overall colour palette of the wedding day and bride, so make sure you're considering that (AKA, you should be consulting with the bride throughout your suit selection process) at this phase.
The Fit Matters
Now that you've selected your suit, the next step is tailoring. Remember, fit matters. You want to not only feel comfortable, but you also want a suit that complements your specific body type. There are three types of suit fits classic fit, slim fit, and modern fit.
A classic fit is usually more comfortable and less constrictive than a slim fit or modern fit, allowing room for more movement. A slim fit is just that: slim, cut close to the body, and typically trendier and associated with European cuts. A modern fit is a blend between a classic and slim fit. It's not as tight as a slim fit, but it's not as roomy as a classic fit, either. Go with what feels and looks best on your body.
Consider the Season
When are you getting married? Because if you're getting married in the winter, you'll want to consider layering up (which might affect the fit of your suit) and you'll also want to take into consideration the material of your suit. During the winter months, you might consider wearing a heavier fabric like wool or tweed to keep you warm. Herringbone is another nice option to keep you well insulated when it's cold outside. On the other hand, you'll want to opt for a lighter and more breathable fabric if you're getting married in the summer or a warm climate.
Don't Forget Accessories.
Accessories do make or break the outfit, including the groom's suit. If you're wearing a tuxedo, you'll want to consider the colour and look of your bow tie. Cufflinks are also important. Do you want to opt for something more traditional or playful? If you're getting hitched in the winter, you might want to think of adding a stylish hat and scarf to your ensemble. Consider adding a splash of colour or a fun pattern to your tie for a summer suit look.
As you can see from the tips above, a few key points are considered when selecting a wedding day suit. But by considering the look and feel of your wedding, you'll easily select the best suit for you (that won't draw attention from the bride).
