Tailored Suits Brisbane
Suiting in the sunshine state requires a skilled hand – you need all the elegance of a well-tailored suit balanced with a light construction that can withstand the subtropical climate.
It’s a tall order, but one we’re happy to make happen at our Oscar Hunt Brisbane suit shop.
Specialising in a uniquely Australian style of made-to-measure suiting, Oscar Hunt Brisbane is housed in vibrant Teneriffe at 68/241 Arthur Street. Surrounded by the toast of the city’s dining scene and conveniently located a stone’s throw from the Story Bridge and the Howard Smith Wharves precinct, our showroom is an enclave of calm among the everyday bustle.
Offering our signature Oscar Hunt service, the Brisbane showroom provides everything from full wedding party fittings to fine-quality shoes and accessories. Beyond the garments, this is also a space to unwind and take a break from the day-to-day. Kick back and enjoy a coffee or drink from our bar, it’s all on us during your appointment.
No matter what you’re looking for, our team of expert fitters will help you craft the perfect garment. Our team has a wealth of expertise and knowledge when it comes to made-to-measure, a skill perfect after welcoming thousands of clients. We look forward to welcoming you next.
Shopping for men's suits in Brisbane
Whether it’s your first visit or your fifteenth, we represent a one-stop shop for tailored suits in Brisbane.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves, let’s start with the essentials.
Of course, we offer an extensive range of fabrics that are suitable for more corporate environments. No matter if you’re wearing a suit once a week or every day, there’s a cloth and look that’s right for you.
While we don’t have a defined house style, we do tend to steer our local clients to lighter wool blends that breathe during the summer while also keeping you warm when the temperature dips in the middle of the year. These fabrics are built to be durable as well, designed to withstand the everyday pressures of commuting and office hours.
We can also assist if you’re looking for a full workday wardrobe, offering custom shirting solutions as well as a range of ready-to-wear accessories like shoes and neckties.
Custom shirting specifically can be a game changer, ensuring that you no longer have to grapple with the standard block sizing that comes with ready-to-wear. In practice, this means no more too-short sleeves or too-tight necks while also having the ability to customize the fit around your torso based on personal preference.
We don’t stop with work attire either. If looking for a more casual tailor-made suit in Brisbane or a signature piece like a blazer, our team can assist, possessing extensive experience in more relaxed styles of tailoring as well.
Linen suits in Brisbane work well with the weather but can get crumpled through movement. To address this, our team will recommend linen or cotton blend options that can help the fabric sit smoothly and give the suit a more polished feel.
Along the same lines, we also offer custom chinos. A truly universal piece – they’re just as at home in a smart casual outfit for the office as they are with a linen shirt or chambray button-down on the weekend.
The benefit of having a pair created through our made-to-measure service is that you can adjust styling and fit based on your preference. For example, you might prefer to get rid of belt loops and add side tabs for a more streamlined look. Similarly, you might decide to opt for a thick cuff to add weight to the hem of the trousers. The choice is yours.
Last, but not least, it’s also worth acknowledging that we have some ready-to-wear pieces in the showroom to round out the more casual elements of your wardrobe. Whether it’s a signature suede jacket or knitwear to slip on, we’ll have key seasonal pieces available in limited supply. If there’s anything that catches your eye, give us a call and the team will let you know whether we have stock or can order it for you.
Wedding Suits Brisbane
Your special day is as much about the lead-up as it is the day itself. Understanding this, the team at Oscar Hunt Brisbane pride themselves on providing a unique wedding fitting service that is as comprehensive as it is enjoyable.
With ample space to spread out and relax, a wedding fitting can be an experience to remember for you and your party. Beyond those benefits, it’s also a surefire way to minimise the risk of last-minute tailoring mishaps on the approach to the big day.
Focused on achieving the perfect fit and look, our fitters ensure uniformity across all suits – regardless of variances in sizing. This helps relieve the stress of finding off-the-rack suits that fit a variety of different body shapes.
If suits aren’t in your vocabulary, our team has extensive experience recommending the perfect look for your nuptials. Whether you’re having a laidback beachside ceremony, a roof-top party or heading overseas, they can assist in crafting a wedding style that is personalised to you.

Womens Suits Brisbane
For too long Australian women have had to make do with off-the-rack tailoring. Even in the hands of the most accomplished alterations services, it’s unlikely you will achieve a truly perfect fit that flatters you and your body.
To add insult to injury, suiting has also been a historically fussy and masculine space with many tailors simply adapting mens’ patterns for womens’ bodies (with not great results).
We decided it was time to take a different approach and launched our Brisbane womens’ suit offering in 2020. Our devoted team create suits with strength, elegance and comfort through our women’s made-to-measure service, pulling it all together in an inclusive, relaxed and private space.
Reflecting the growing popularity of womens’ suiting, our range can be worn far beyond the traditional office setting, suitable for day wear, dinners and everything in between.
Offering a range of fabrics and linings complimentary to the Brisbane climate, our women’s suiting is specifically crafted for those who are on the move, balancing clean lines and immaculate construction with breathability and comfort.
Whether you favour a sharp pantsuit or a more deconstructed maximalist aesthetic, our team looks forward to welcoming and collaborating with you on your new garment.

The Oscar Hunt Brisbane experience
Beyond the garments themselves, we’re particularly proud to offer what we believe to be the premier experience when it comes to suits in Brisbane.
From the moment you enter the showroom, you’ll be greeted by both a friendly team and a thoughtfully curated space, featuring signature furniture designs from the ‘60s and ‘70s alongside a selection of contemporary pieces.
And it’s against this backdrop that you’ll meet with your dedicated fitter to design your unique piece.
While there’s an emphasis on design in our spaces, it’s balanced by a focus on comfort. After all, there’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re in a stuffy showroom. That’s why we offer a private, spacious area just for you and your guests to relax and feel at home.
Our team is dedicated to taking any of the confusion out of tailoring – we’re down-to-earth, plain talkers. There are no stupid questions and we love nothing more than the opportunity to share a little bit of our expertise with you.
During your appointment, you’ll also be offered complimentary beverages from our in-house bar which boasts a range of drinks, including some from our partners Four Pillars and Young Henrys.
After your initial fitting, you’ll also have unlimited access to our dedicated tailor, ensuring that you walk away with a finished garment that is absolutely perfect. This means that no detail is left unturned and you needn’t worry about racking up an enormous tailoring bill either – it’s all covered in the upfront cost.
The same applies to any mending that’s required during the lifespan of your garment. Loose threads and undone hems are an easy fix, drop them off and leave it to us.
The local edit
In addition to being masters of craft when it comes to providing the best tailored suits in Brisbane, our team of experts pride themselves on being passionate locals of the area too. From cafes to bars to little-known experiences, they are a one-stop shop for discovering (or rediscovering) Teneriffe and the surrounding areas.
Here, we provide a snapshot of our top picks when it comes to eating and drinking in the area. After all, finding a suit tailor in Brisbane can be tiring work that requires both sustenance and a stretch of the legs.
There’s no surpassing the outstanding modern Greek cuisine at Hellenika within The Calile hotel. With outstanding interiors and views over the hotel’s iconic pool area, this is a restaurant that is just as much about the experience as it is about the food. Making a recommendation from the stacked menu is hard, but for us, it’s a standoff between the slow-cooked lamb or the moussaka.
A hop skip and a jump from The Calile is Gerard’s Bar. The perfect pit stop post-Brisbane custom suit shopping, this is a venue that has it all – from a chic yet cosy aesthetic to an absolutely stellar drinks list.
