Our Adelaide showroom is spread across a historical terrace house in leafy Norwood. Here, you can wander between display suites, spacious fitting rooms and the rooftop balcony while our expert fitters offer their skilled hands.
Tailored suits in Adelaide
If you’re looking for a distinctly contemporary style of Australian tailoring, look no further than Oscar Hunt – a suit shop in Adelaide with a difference.
Specialising in made-to-measure suiting for men and women, we champion a laidback yet luxurious aesthetic, specifically designed for contemporary Australia. A far cry from the more traditional tailors in Adelaide, Oscar Hunt offers a considered approach that balances aesthetics with functionality.
Nestled away from the bustle of the CBD, our Adelaide showroom sits on the city fringe in the leafy locale of Norwood. Split across multiple levels of a stately terrace house and featuring spacious fitting rooms and a rooftop balcony, the space has been designed for a more relaxed kind of tailoring experience.
Championing a focus on high-quality cloth and construction, our team of expert fitters are on hand to guide you through the suiting process and to ensure that you create the perfect ensemble for you.

With a substantial footprint, our Adelaide Showroom easily houses entire wedding parties with ample space for everyone to relax and enjoy the made-to-measure suit process.
Shopping for men’s suits in Adelaide
In addition to offering tailoring solutions for some of those bigger life events like upcoming nuptials, we’re also providers of more everyday wear. We’re a one-stop shop for suits in Adelaide of any variety. Below, we’ve broken out the categories that customers generally shop across to give you a sense of what’s available.
While our relationship with offices has changed significantly over the past few years, we recognise that for many people it’s now back to business as usual. That may mean that you’re popping into a corporate setting occasionally or every day. Regardless of what kind of mix you find yourself in, it always pays to look the part. That’s where we come in.
We’re firm believers that getting dressed for work should be fun rather than a chore. Our team likes to find the interesting and beautiful details that can exist in workday attire. This means that we use an extensive collection of high-quality fabrics from some of the best manufacturers around the world and that we build your Adelaide suits to your taste and specifications.
With so many options to hand, we often start by asking our customers to do a mental audit of their existing collection of suits in Adelaide. In doing so, we can suggest options that either fill gaps or provide an interesting riff on what you’ve already got. For example, if you have the foundations of navy and charcoal covered, we’ll steer you towards a patterned fabric like a pinstripe or a self-stripe.
In addition to offering custom suits in Adelaide, we also provide made-to-measure shirting services – an easy means of rounding out your full ensemble. On the functional side of things, this ensures that your shirt is completely proportionate to your jacket in terms of sleeve length. On the more style-based front, it also allows you to customise the fit which means that there’s no more ‘making-do’ with too-tight or too-loose shirts.
You might be on the hunt for something less traditional, leaning more towards a casual tailor-made suit in Adelaide. After all, it’s increasingly the case that people need versatility – the kind of blazer that can be thrown over a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt to up the ante for a mid-week meeting or, equally, that can be dressed up with chinos and a pocket square for cocktail style dress codes.
In these instances, we have a wide range of fabrics and styles to choose from. Where it differs though is the colour and pattern spectrum that we can explore. While corporate settings continue to be somewhat dominated by more sombre tones, casual suiting gives you licence to try something completely new.
Depending on the use, we often start by suggesting lighter colours or neutrals. When it comes to custom suits in Adelaide, sand, beige and taupe are easy-to-wear colours that pair sensationally with a plain white shirt and either a pair of RM Williams, loafers or even sneakers.
For those who are looking for something bolder but still timeless, we’d guide you towards rust, sage and paler blues. As a suit, these colours pack a real punch without veering into the garish but, what’s more, they also work well as separates and can be worn as a standalone blazer.
Naturally, this brings us to our stand-alone pieces. While we might be a suit tailor in Adelaide, our wheelhouse is far broader than that, encompassing both blazers and chinos too.
Sports coats and blazers are becoming an increasingly fundamental element in wardrobes, specifically due to their versatility and how easy they are to dress up and down. In the event you’re making your first foray into this space, we’re firm believers that the best place to start is with the classics – like a navy sports jacket. Just as at home over a pair of jeans as it is with a tie and chinos for a dressy event, this is a piece that you’ll wear forever.
From a chino perspective, we find that many of our customers have had to make do with ready-to-wear options that never quite fit. We can address this while also giving you the opportunity to customise those finishing details like the cuff and waistband. Available in a range of fabrics from corduroy to cotton, these chinos really are a cut above the rest.
Made-to-measure women’s suits in Adelaide
Women’s suiting is moving beyond the confines of the corporate world and fast becoming a key pillar of contemporary fashion. Worn by everyone from CEOs to Hollywood stars, a well-tailored suit really is the look of the moment.
This is why we’re excited to introduce our range of Oscar Hunt women’s suiting.
Championed by the women of Oscar Hunt, our range focuses on classic suiting, supremely fitted. Recognising the importance of not only aesthetic but functionality, our team works with the best cloth manufacturers across Europe to source fabrics that are not only perfect for the Adelaide climate but also highly unique.
Unlike off-the-rack options, our made-to-measure suits take into consideration your unique proportions and body type to deliver an ensemble that is highly flattering and specifically made to fit.
Whether you’re looking for a standout pantsuit for an important meeting or you’re looking to make a statement with a contemporary take on ‘Le Smoking’, our fitters have the expertise to ensure that you leave Oscar Hunt with a suit that is perfect.
The custom suit Adelaide experience
In addition to offering what we believe are the best tailored suits in Adelaide, we also pride ourselves on being curators of a unique retail experience from the moment you enter our showroom.
When you first walk through the door of our Norwood space, you’ll be greeted by a thoughtfully designed interior, featuring signature Australian furniture designs from both the ‘60s and ‘70s alongside key contemporary pieces.
After meeting your fitter, you’ll then be guided to your private and dedicated fitting space where there is an emphasis on comfort. Kitted out with sofas for you and any guests you might bring, we operate on a ‘mi casa su casa’ principle.
In short, we don’t pretend to be a stuffy suit shop in Adelaide – and we’re proud to create spaces that reflect that.
During your appointment, you’ll be offered complimentary beverages from our in-house bar. It’s fully stocked with some of the best drink labels from here and abroad, including our partners at Four Pillars and Young Henrys.
Our commitment to service continues far beyond that initial appointment too. Included in the price of your garment is an unlimited amount of tailoring to ensure that you walk away with a piece you love. In a similar vein, should you experience any everyday wear and tear, such as a loose hem, we’re only too happy for you to bring it in and we’ll perform a complimentary repair.
