Revitalise Your Professional Wardrobe This Autumn with Custom Tailoring

When it comes to a wardrobe refresh, there’s nothing quite like a change of season to give you the nudge that you need to get going. And in Australia, there’s arguably no better season for suiting than Autumn. Mild enough to be pleasant but a far cry from the tropical humidity and scorching heat we get over Summer, it’s a time of year where you can truly embrace your made-to-measure vision, whatever it might look like.


Here, we’re giving you the Oscar Hunt lowdown on how to harness the energy of a new season to revamp your Autumn professional wardrobe. Let’s dive in.


This time of year gives you a carte blanche when it comes to picking a tailored suit. Whether you’re opting for a heavier wool variety, exploring light flannels or eeking the last month or two out of a linen combination, there are infinite ways you can style these options to best reflect any seasonal trends.


From a colour perspective, we prefer to opt for warmer shades of grey and brown at this time of year, the perfect reflection of the changing leaves and light. For a more corporate setting, consider a charcoal suit paired with copper-toned accessories to straddle a seasonally appropriate look with a more subdued dress code.


At Oscar Hunt, our custom tailoring services extend beyond suiting to include shirts as well. While our trans seasonal staple is a crisp white cotton button up, this time of year also lends itself to subtle patterns like Bengal stripes. Depending on how bold you’re feeling, options run the full gamut from eye popping greens and blues to more subdued tans and greys.

In the plain category, we’re also seeing an increase in off-white and cream coloured shirts that - when personalised - often perfectly offset a neutral coloured suit (think sage, brown or even tan).

Finishing touches

To complete the professional look, we’re proud to offer an ever expanding range of ready to wear accessories and footwear. For Autumn, we can’t go past a knitted silk tie paired with a patterned pocket square in ambers and greens.


Worn with a chocolate brown suit and brogues, this is the perfect way to shake up - and modernise - a more traditional work suit.
