The dream for Opal Formal Wear began in 1957 by an inspired Greek Cypriot tailor. He fell in love with Australia’s opal stone while travelling around the country in the 1970s, and used the gem as a spark to start a suit factory that went on to become a chain of successful Opal menswear stores.
The Opal legacy remains strong today. Along with a host of other accomplishments, in 2005, Opal won the “Fashions on the Field” award at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, and we were also recently awarded ABIA’s “Best Groom’s Fashion 2019, 2017 & 2015 and runner-up 2014, 2016, 2018"for Victoria, and 3 best ABIA National Award winner 2019.
Now, through our showroom in Ivanhoe, Melbourne, we offer gentlemen formal suits for hire or sale, and made to measure. We also provide a full range of fashion shirts, ties, shoes and accessories.
