For 80 years Spurling Formalwear has been dressing men in tailored formal attire for weddings, black tie events and other special occasions. Starting out with just one store in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray, we have since grown to become Australia’s largest and longest-running bridal, formalwear and suit hire company with over 150 stores across the country.


Spurling is probably best known for formal hire and this service continues today as a major part of our business. We have the largest range of suits and accessories available in Australia, boasting over 30 suit styles and more than 50 vest & accessory styles. Starting at $99 for jacket & trousers, hiring is a very affordable option, especially for bridal parties!

SUIT SALES… and more

Quite often, as a keepsake of their special day, our grooms ask ‘Can I purchase this suit?’ The answer of course is yes! The Spurling retail collection has fashion-forward suits, shirts and accessories to purchase, not only for the wedding party, but also for other occasions which call to dress up – racing carnival, school formals, job interviews and even business attire.

If you plan on attending a number of formal events, purchasing your own classic black suit is definitely worth the investment.


Stocking Australian and international labels including Allure, Madison James and Eddy K, Spurling has a beautiful collection of bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses to purchase, complementing every style wedding – from the traditional church ceremony to the destination beach wedding.


Spurling also stocks gorgeous debutante, flowergirl and after five wear in a great range of designs and colours.


Spurling can outfit virtually anyone heading to a formal function or special occasion – brides, grooms, school boys & girls, debutantes and their partners, flowergirls, pageboys, mothers & fathers of the bride & groom, ushers, MCs, guests, job candidates, race-goers – you name it! Our products cater to most shapes and sizes with our men’s hire suits starting at 34 and going up to a generous size 60, and several of our bridal & bridesmaid styles going up to size 26.


The staff in our stores are professional bridal & formalwear consultants, armed with extensive product knowledge and training and are ready to dress you for your big event – whether that is to find the perfect gown for the theme of your wedding, or ensure that you meet the black tie dress code for a charity ball.


Spurling pledges to consistently aim for excellence in the following areas-:

To provide fashionable product of the best possible quality, at competitive prices.

To deliver that product in an efficient and timely manner.

To ensure that our customers receive and enjoy the best possible consumer experience.

All of these aims are adopted with a view towards maintaining our position as not only the best bridal and formalwear company in Australia and the first choice in clothing for special occasions.
