A Comprehensive Summary of Australian Men's Online Clothing Retailers

A Comprehensive Summary of Australian Men's Online Clothing Retailers

A Comprehensive Summary of Australian Men's Online Clothing Retailers

Almost 7 years ago, I made a spreadsheet of almost all the mens online stores in Australia, based off a list from /fa/, which currently lives in the sidebar of aMFA. I've now updated it, as well as added additional information (shipping fees, number of brands/products stocked, location etc.) to be a more useful resource, and also removed the shitty 4chan slang.

Why? I think Mens shopping in Australia is far behind the rest of the world - there are so many great, quality brands in the world, many of which receive a spotlight on MFA, but often only a few stores in Australia stock them. There are also loads of great Australian brands, and new ones launching, that are also impossible to find. I've also included a few major international sites that ship to Australia, but note the shipping price.

Why have I ranked them by tier? As many great stores exist in Australia, there are also loads of low quality chain stores that permeate every Westfield and Stockland. I'm hoping to bring light to some of the smaller, better shops to support them in this trying time, however I appreciate some of the opinions are quite subjective.

This Reddit table looks like shit! Sorry that's not my fault - I've published the excel version here, which includes even more details on each store (ie. what brands they stock, how many products they have online, etc.)

Where's X store? Let me know any shops I've missed, I'm sure there's a few I haven't covered. I've tried to make this exhaustive, but I've also purposely left off quite a few dadcore clothing (Gazman, Sportscraft, Rodd & Gunn) and boring shoe 

(Aquila, Windsor Smith) brands.
Before I get into it - there's a few interesting facts I've noticed when compiling this data:

33% of stores from the original list have closed down - not just smaller ones, but some of the biggest ones (eg. Topman) have been swallowed up as well

Many new stores have popped up - sneaker stores have seen the biggest growth

David Jones has a better range of high end brands, while Myer has gone downhill - they used to be comparable and now they're worlds apart
