Moving up to Darlinghurst as an extension of the original Melbourne store, P.A.M. has built a reputation amongst Sydneysiders for sourcing innovative streetwear from brands like Kitsune, Norse Projects and Wood Wood. There’s a heady mix of art and fashion here, with even a few ceramics and books displayed around the handsome design-forward store.

This popular Darlinghurst boutique is fiercely dedicated to pointing men towards top quality, long-lasting casual clothing from a varied and generous list of brands. The curation here is always on point, with the constantly flowing stock taking in the likes of The North Face, Stan Ray, Casablanca, Novesta, Nike, Aries, adidas Originals, and plenty more.

Located at Westfield in CBD, Harrolds is the pinnacle of high-end men’s fashion – the place you most definitely want to be if you’re looking for the likes of Tom Ford, Moncler, and Burberry. Don’t expect to walk out with your bank account still intact, but at least the temptation will be worth it. No other store in Sydney has the scope for big name designers that can quite match up to Harrolds, whether that means high-end streetwear or something a bit more formal.

For well over a century, Henry Bucks has been a high-end fashion staple in Australia and has become synonymous with well-tailored suits and a sophisticated look. The likes of Canali, Richard James and Boglioli line the shelves at this O’Connell Street store, which also offers more casual attire like chinos and flannels downstairs. While there, be sure to sit down for a close shave from their in-house barber if need be.

Unlike most of the other stores on this list, Belance isn’t a curated shop stocking multiple brands carefully selected from around the world. This is a classic high-end store built on a tailored approach to excellent quality casual suits, evening wear, and work wear. Whether it’s an overcoat or a suit you’re looking for, getting your threads tailored here is a no brainer. Although there’s also ready-to-ship trousers and sunglasses in stock at this Paddington boutique – an excellent find.

Newtown favourite Maplestore is an oasis of streetwear brands and amongst the best in the business. Although the primo curators manage to fit in plenty of other lifestyle essentials like knives, towels, and general outdoor accessories. The range is impressively large, from RM Williams to New Balance, Patagonia to Monokel, so make sure you’ve got enough time before you pop by – the choice anxiety is real.

Incu maintains a commanding presence over the Australian fashion scene, with popular boutiques dotted up and down the country’s east coast.

Nordic looks rules the aesthetic at Someplace, curated in complete dedication to the distinctive Scandi style. Minimalism sits at the core of this constantly on-trend Barangaroo boutique, which was moved by Swedish couple Mattias Friberg and Kristina Vikman from its original location in Surry Hills. Notable stock includes brands like Cheap Mondays, Bellroy and Soulland, but it’s always worth checking what new European and Australia labels the owners have sourced. If you can’t make it along, head on over to their online shop, Somedays.

Big Trouble Store
There are only two tent poles to the curation at Big Trouble Store – New York, and Tokyo. Although the scope may appear small, the depth of design on offer here is massive. The store itself outgrew its original Haymarket location and since took up in the old digs of Halfsleeve on Goulburn Street, regularly keeping the inner-city’s best-dressed looking sharp with brands like Indispensable, New Balance, Nanamica, Papa Nui, Native Sons, Dead Feelings, and more men’s streetwear fashion staples.

P. Johnson is another of those menswear stores that is more about made-to-measure than multi-brand menswear. Head tailor Tom Riley and owner Pete Johnson oversee a collection that’s strong in fit and style, regularly attracting men who are constantly – and wisely – won over to the idea of wearing individualised clothing, as opposed to off-the-rack. The brand itself also offers plenty to choose from, in a suave Paddington boutique unassumingly positioned on Walker Lane.
Address: 7 Walker Ln, Paddington
I can’t mention carefully measured and tailored clothing without giving a special nod to Oscar Hunt. Much like P. Johnson, this isn’t a multi-brand boutique, but it’s definitely somewhere you’d go to get a cut and style that’s made for you and only you. There’s a big range of of attire to choose from at this tailoring boutique, from wedding and black tie standards, to casual and lifestyle suits and pants.

Located amongst the dozens of restaurants of Barangaroo, Shirt Bar remains a unique concept for Sydney – simply an equally adept cocktail bar, and a menswear store selling both ready-to-wear and made-to-order shirts. The onsite tailor is there for wedding fits and alterations, while the range in-store favours European design with brands like Ganton and Jensen. And since it’s a licenced premise, Shirt Bar also offers food, coffee, cocktails, and a collection of well-sourced whiskies from around the world.
Address: Tower 1, Corner Scotch Row and, Shipwright Walk, Barangaroo

The odd name would make sense once you stepped inside this tiny boutique on the first floor of Westfield Sydney. The concept store is serious about doing things different – so different in fact, that they often host free in-store night yoga so you can stretch those muscles amongst racks lined with design-forward apparel from the likes of Commes des Garcons, Rick Owens, Bellroy, Maison Margiela, and Veja. Surprisingly, there’s also a produce section with food and drink from the likes of Seedlip and Bruny Island Cheese, so you can pair your men’s fashion with some great produce.
