Our Story

About Us

Founded in Brisbane in 2007, The Cloakroom has evolved into a world renowned tailoring brand with stores in Brisbane, Montreal and Tokyo. Characterised by their artisanal quality, Cloakroom garments are cut from the finest fabrics and crafted by the finest tailors. Each piece is unique in cut and style, and allows the wearer to define who they are.

Define Who You Are

The Cloakroom is forged on the belief that clothing is an extension and expression of self; a belief that our wardrobe speaks directly to our tastes, our values and our ideas. That it says everything about who we are, without saying anything at all. It presents a rare opportunity to truly define who we are.

Meet The Brisbane Team

Andrew founded The Cloakroom in 2007 and as Creative Director, has been behind the brand’s expansion and product development. When he's not contemplating the perfect horn button for a suit, he is usually checking exchange rates and planning his next trip overseas.

Ben is passionate about taking clients on a journey with their wardrobes. As a result, his style is always evolving as he experiments with new fabrics and details. When he is not testing out the latest cashmere knits, he is obsessing over his record collection and hi-fi system, while indulging in his passion for wine.
