About us

Since 2003, George, Spiro and the team at Formal Red have catered for the fine gentleman of Melbourne with suits of remarkable character and quality. Having worked for many different menswear companies, the idea of Formal Red grew due to the lack of high quality garments on offer and more importantly poor customer service.

From humble beginnings we began tailoring all of our garments here in Melbourne, offering a Custom made Service, a Ready to Wear collection and a modest Hire service. The focus on customer service and quality tailoring was unique. We brought back the experience of a true “Clothier”.

This commitment to service has inspired loyalty in the company’s diverse clientele that includes Musicians, Journalists, TV personalities, AFL & NRL players amongst others.


Awesome suits. My husband and all the groomsman were just so happy with them. You couldn’t even tell it was a rental! They made sure they measured and gave us ample time to return the suits. They were also very accommodating to our large bridal party’s time constraints as well!

George at Formal Red is an absolute gentleman, looked after my groomsmen and my tuxedos perfectly. Great for a chat and reasonable prices. Quality service.

Ray and the team were excellent in helping me pick out a suit for myself and my groomsmen. They knew what they were talking about, and knew what would look good. The quality of the suits is exceptional. As soon as I put it on I knew I wanted it.
