GENTLEMAN & SCHOLAR APPAREL is a local label, specialising in handmade men’s accessories. Our mission is to bring back the refined man, and we aim to do this through dressing gentlemen in alternative dapper attire; as well as providing a hub for inspiration and education around wearing, sourcing and using men’s clothing and products.

We offer custom bow ties, neckties and pocket squares, or alternatively you can select your favourites from our online shop. All of our products are made in our home-studio here in Perth, Western Australia using new, vintage, and dead-stock fabrics to guarantee originality. We’re also continually on the hunt for other one-off men’s accessories to provide modern gentlemen with an old-world approach to dressing.

Alongside our products, we also offer advice in men’s styling. So, if you’ve got a big event coming up and you’re not sure what you’re looking for, or maybe you’re after something specific, we can help source items and style your attire accordingly.

With a keen interest in textiles and design, Michaela has been making things from scratch with her hands for as long as she can remember. Though, after a whole lot of interest was generated around a humble collection of bow ties she made for her husband back in 2012, Gentleman & Scholar was formed.
