Retail Business Award sponsored by Roderick Insurance Brokers: Mr Brown’s Menswear

October 19, 2023 BY

The family-owned Mr Brown's Menswear has been operating in Geelong since 1956.

First established in 1956, Mr Brown’s Menswear has a rich history. The family-owned operation is now in its third generation and has evolved over time to meet the changing needs of its customers.

Mr Brown’s Menswear is now the largest fashion retailer in Geelong West and specializes in suiting for all ages and events. The retailer houses a generous range of menswear products and pursues items that are both high-quality and stylish. In order to set themselves apart from their competitors, Mr Brown’s Menswear also seeks out garments that are not readily available at major department stores. Instead, the retailer works to secure relationships with smaller fashion houses and designers, many of which are local to Geelong.

To accommodate for different needs, shapes, and sizes, the retailer offers tailoring, repairs, alterations, and a hire service. And this year, Mr Brown’s Menswear is the recipient of the Retail Business Award, sponsored by Roderick Insurance Brokers. The award is open to all retail businesses that sell commodities directly to consumers.

“Cameron and his team offer sophisticated style at its finest,” judges Christine Smith and Tom Brady said. “Their stunningly renovated store in Pakington Street embraces Mr Brown’s 67-year history in Geelong, and offers services including hire, sale, embroidery, an online store, repairs, and alterations. We were impressed with Mr Brown’s innovations and their technological improvements as a great investment planned for success.”

These improvements are all in aid of Mr Brown’s Menswear’s mission to provide its customers with a world-class shopping experience. But while the world may have changed significantly over the past 70 years, the business’ customer-oriented focus hasn’t. Led by the belief that how you choose to present yourself is a reflection of who you are, the team at Mr Brown’s Menswear strives to earn the trust of their customers and develop long-term relationships.

But the retailer’s efforts also extend beyond its shopfront to the local community. Mr Brown’s Menswear supports several community organizations, events, and local schools including Ashby Primary School, Diversitat, Pako Festa, and The Road Home.
