Online Shop

With majority of garments made locally in our own workroom, Mandatory develops and releases new garments every week. Materials sources for Mandatory garments are of the highest quality to guarantee an enduring design. 

We have built a reputation for ensuring excellent garment fit therefore we prefer to fit you in-store so that, if necessary, we can alter or cut new garments to give you the ultimate in shape and style - see Custom Fit.  Trying on is highly recommended before purchase, please inquire.

We have a very good alteration service which facilitates the rack garments to work well for the majority of purchases.  These same rack garments do also function as prototypes for garments made to order. Mandatory offers custom fit on any Mandatory Label garments we can at no extra charge. (Time and fabric availability are considerations against custom make). 


Size Guide

The table below sets out garment sizes that correspond to each other and regularly fit together. Eg. A size Medium guy typically fits a 39 or 40 cm neck dress shirt, a 96 or 100 cm chest jkt, an 88cm dress/casual pant, and this will correspond to good brand jeans as  33 inch (there are a few dodgy sized 32” sold elsewhere these days confusing the issue!) 

Medium can be the hardest area to define as guys can be on the smaller or bigger side of this. Buying dress shirts; collars and neck sizes are absolute, but brands can vary in roominess, length etc. Please enquire, we stock a variety of brands and styles to cover shape and taste below the neck!

Our top sizes are considered to be good fair standard sizes and a Medium guy fits our medium casual shirts, tees and jackets generally without issue.

Our trou sizes are true to measurements. Due to our extensive involvement in tailored wear where centimetres matter, we are not generous with our waists. Ease is added to allow for pants sitting low but neat. The table is a good guide to what is likely to work on a guy whose frame is fairly in proportion.
