Steve Barkla, Head Fitter
Managing our Sydney showroom, Steve is an accomplished fitter with undeniable drive for menswear. Each day he understands his clients’ fit in order to create a pattern to meet their needs and improve their aesthetic. His foray into menswear started with a love of heritage workwear; an appreciation of garments made with practicality as the first consideration, something Steve finds relevant today.
From when he puts on his own made-to-measure suit in the morning, Steve enjoys its purpose and the sentiment it conveys. He instils this passion with his clients, helping them to discover the joy of wearing suiting and achieve a greater level of confidence through comfort. Steve’s own style is distinctive and his clients enjoy his eye for creating their own wardrobes.
Client-focused and focused on experience, Steve welcomes all into the showroom with the same level of respect and without prejudice. He helps each client discover their own silhouette within the Oscar Hunt universe without prescribing a standard. In his own words, class never dates, and his philosophy is to help every gentleman discover their own lasting impression.
