Spring has sprung, and for another year brought with it an influx of invitations to social gatherings, race meetings and cocktail parties that each require the perfect outfit, lest one be cast a social pariah (or at least cop a dressing down from the fashion police). But what’s that we hear you say? Suits can be too expensive? A whole new wardrobe at full-ticket is too much of a knock to the hip so close to Christmas?
Well, we agree. Which is why we’re here to remind you of two things. One: you don’t always need to invest in a full suit for this time of year (although there’s nothing quite as good as owning a brand new well-fitted suit from the latest fabrics and designs), and two: when you need to stock up on fresh rags en masse for the coming months, hit up a sale.
M.J. Bale is one of Australia’s most recognisable names in suiting. From business staples that keep you looking like a boss in the boardroom to tailored tuxedos that ensure you’re the handsome-est crasher at the wedding, they have been adeptly outfitting Australian men for the past ten years. But don’t let the high-quality fabrics and craftsmanship fool you: a savvy shopper will still be able to spot an M.J. Bale bargain here and there, if they know where to look.
M.J. Bale’s Factory Outlet Stores are already a great place to score last season’s stock, but right now, they are hosting an enormous sale (their biggest one yet) that is absolutely perfect for picking up suit separates in time for the social diary’s onslaught of sun, sand and garden parties. The sale has already kicked off and will run until the 23rd of November, so make sure you get in quick.
And while winter occasions are great for showing off your favourite three-piece merino suit (M.J. Bale’s Australian Merino fabrics are second to none), Spring’s bounty of colour is a great opportunity to mix and match blazer and chino combinations, and flex your style-muscle by accessorising accordingly.
An outlet sale of these proportions is like a giant lucky-dip, with heaps of M.J. Bale’s finest on offer that you won’t find anywhere online or in a flagship. Everything has been reduced to clear, with discounts as big as 75 per cent off ticket prices storewide. Markdowns are labelled accordingly, and once it’s gone, it’s gone, so you can stroll out with a new wardrobe satisfied with the knowledge that you got in before anybody else.
