We source our materials largely from Italy, Australia and Turkey. Our knitwear is developed exclusively from Australian wool sourced from Geelong, a few hours drive from our stores. We have also started working with our mills to develop bespoke fabrics from our original designs, like our new linen holiday shirts.
Most of our clothing, we use a process called "garment dyeing", which has become an iconic and distinctive characteristic of our permanent collection. It leaves our clothing feeling 'worn-in' and ageing better over time.
The fashion industry today is often more focused on profit-margin than craft. This manifests in low-quality garments produced en masse with little thought as to the art or origin of the item. In contrast to fast-fashion, Christian Kimber is dedicated to our promise of timeless, functional and durable garments of the highest quality.
Redefining modern Australian menswear, Christian Kimber is committed to the philosophy of the slow-lifestyle that we cater, to in the production of every product. We only work with independent, ethical and family-run manufacturers in Florence and Sofia that work hard to put their people first. And in caring for our makers, we end up with more lovingly made clothes
Our Fitzroy Chore Jacket
Our chore jacket is created for the laid-back Melbourne life. This is your everything jacket, from a Wednesday meeting to walking the dog, to travel. It goes with all colours and works in most situations, which is why it's one of our permanent styles.
Our Fitzroy is inspired by classic French workwear. Created in a textured Italian cotton which is incredibly soft and has a slight stretch to it, it is just so comfortable and also retains its shape. A great alternative to a Friday blazer, with a trio of pockets at the front for holding a wallet and set of keys. It can be comfortably layered over our long-sleeved polos, shirts or a light rollneck.
We’d love to hear from you.
