Award-winning Sydney menswear brand Commas is known for its classic swimwear and resortwear featuring high quality fabrics – including recycled recycled polyamide and organic cotton – and original handpainted prints.

The brand is also known for its support of sustainable fashion production with all garments being made in Australia. Commas also offsets its carbon footprint for freight and flights, and is working towards creating a net-zero workplace. 

The Commas style is a mix of 50s European beachwear – think button-up shirts slung over swim shorts or speedos – combined with the colours of the Australian beach. These are classic shapes made interesting by the use of unique prints. 

This brand is not cheap, prices for silk shirts are around AU$600 and even the swim shorts can cost up to $345. However, this is a brand that’s been made to last, so think of it as an investment. 

While Commas is described as a menswear brand, all genders can easily wear its loose-fitting pieces. The perfect light linen beach shirt is totally genderless after all.
