Crane Brothers One of Australia’s Top Suiters

Sydney clothing store, the New Zealand-owned Crane Brothers, founded by former Zambesi menswear designer Murray Crane, is included in a Sydney Morning Herald feature on the best places in Australia to buy a suit.

“No visit to Sydney would be complete”, according to the Herald’s Luc Wiesman, without a trip to these self-professed “contemporary tailors”.

“Crane Brothers offers a fine selection of handmade menswear with a strong focus on suiting, both ready-to-wear and made-to-measure. In addition to suits, you’ll find their New Zealand-made shirts are to die for and the service is pretty good too.”

Crane started the business in 1998. He says he makes things he likes and sells things he makes.
