Oscar Hunt is about the relationship between tailor and client.

We work with you to help create the perfect suit or shirt for any given occasion.

We have created an environment where the groom and his groomsmen can come together and enjoy a few drinks while our tailor guides you through the steps to create your ultimate wedding suits. From traditional dinner suits to modern cut, single-button suits with peak lapels, we can design suits to cater to varying styles. 

For a wedding party of 4-6 this takes an hour and a half for your first appointment.

As part of the Oscar Hunt experience our team can mix you up anything from a scotch, straight up, to one of our signature cocktails. We can also arrange food service from one of the 25 restaurants on Hardware Lane.

Timing
To provide a comfortable amount of time for construction and final completion we recommend that the first appointment takes place six to eight weeks before the wedding date. This is followed by a second fitting four weeks later where the suits are perfected.

Our wool is sourced from Australia. We change our fabrics seasonally to make sure we have a suitable range for our clients.

WHAT SUIT FABRICS CAN I CHOOSE FROM?

We have a large fabric selection that encompasses any cloth type you wish. The most prominent cloth selected across the market for business or everyday suits is wool. Clients looking for that distinctive suit can choose from an array of wools, cottons, linens, mohair, tweeds and more. The below listed fabrics are all made from natural fibres.

WOOL

Wool is versatile in being able to be woven super fine and light/tropical weight, or thick and heavy/warm weight. Different types of wool will create distinct drapes, durability and warmth. The weight of the wool is the best determinant of whether it best suits a winter or summer climate. Wool is a natural product therefore it breaths regardless of whether its heavy or light.

COTTON

Cotton is not only used for shirts, but can look great in your everyday suit. Although it might seem informal or casual because of garment creasing, it can be dressed up or dressed down for any occasion. Blazers or sports jackets can typically be made from cotton to give a natural feel or provide an enhanced casual look. Cotton can also be woven openly to create the desired look similar to linen.

LINEN

Linen tends to be an open weave fabric with a weight and texture that creates a desired look. The open weave allows it to breath, as it is a naturally thicker fibre. Linen would be typically used in a summer suit made for warmer climates.

BLENDS

Blends can create desired effects and particular looks. Blending different cloth types can enhance durability, sheen, texture, and softness. Each fabric choice and its percentage of blended fabric will create a different drape and overall feel to the cloth.

Blends might be: Linen and silk, cotton and linen, silk and cotton, wool and cashmere, or wool and mohair.

HOW DOES THE FITTING PROCESS WORK?

We say it’s a three stage fitting process.

Your first appointment goes for 45mins – 1hour whereby you to sit with our Head Fitter and discuss all fabric options, design elements, pricing, and take all measurements necessary.

Second fitting is after we construct your garments and invite you back to our studio roughly four weeks after the initial appointment. If we need to adjust your garments after the second fitting we have our in-house Master Tailor make any adjustments necessary within a two-week period.

A third and final fitting is organised where you try on the garments after any alterations are made and if you’re happy with everything you can walk out with the suit over your shoulder.

If you are working towards a specific date then we will determine whether we are able to work within the timeframe you have.

All measurements will be kept on our system for reference if you require any future garments.

WHAT ARE THE TURNAROUND TIMES?

We say our lead-time is roughly 6-7 weeks on suits and overcoats, and approximately 6 weeks on shirts. Variance in timeframes can occur due to fabric choice and availability.

If you are buying a wedding suit, then always plan further ahead as to avoid any stress leading up to game day.

Fantastic experience from start to finish my husband's suit was held up due to corona virus, but they still managed to get it in and the alterations were turned around in a matter of days. The office and fitting rooms in the city are beautiful. We had a really great time going in for his fittings and sharing a complimentary whiskey or two after in their beautiful reception room. The suit itself was amazing, extremely high quality and this showed both in person and in photos. We would have another suit made by Oscar Hunt if the circumstances arose.

Wonderful service and skill - my groom looked amazing in his suit which fitted him like a glove. They took time to get to know us and what we wanted, and the process was a lot of fun. Professional and good value. Wouldn't go anywhere else now for tailoring.

The tailors at Oscar Hunt were brilliant. They made my husband feel so comfortable when getting fitted for his suit and listened to everything he was after. They also made some great recommendations about the fabrics he should use and also styles that would be most flattering to his body type. The suit fit perfectly and it was wonderful to see him so comfortable and looking amazing on the day.
