About Us

Everything we offer at Shirt Bar is brought to you with much love and a lot of expertise.  We have been making shirts in Australia for over 40 years and are passionate about all our products and our service – but we don’t take ourselves too seriously! We’d like to think we’re friendly people who sincerely want you to enjoy your experience. Shopping should be fun - and at the end of the day that is why we created Shirt Bar.

We are located on Sussex Lane not too far from King Street Wharf in Sydney’s CBD. Priding ourselves on a truly unique environment where you can relax in our friendly and intimate space, listen to some tunes and sip on a drink whilst you browse. Above all we are here to help, we understand you have your own style, and that's what we're here for – to lend a hand in finding your perfect shirt, making your ultimate coffee, discovering a rare Scotch, or hosting your next event. So at any stage along the way please don’t hesitate to contact us!

OUR PEOPLE

The people behind Shirt Bar are Justin Marmot, his wife Louka Marmot, and their long time friend Adam Hofbauer. Wanting to bring something new and fresh to Sydney they collaborated to bring all their passions under one roof – shirts, coffee and dark spirits.

Growing up in the family business, Justin has lived and breathed all things shirts his whole life. He now runs Kentia Group, which encompasses the  manufacturing of Ganton, Jensen, Bespoke Shirts and Bespoke Bureau. Justin’s wife Louka has worked in the fashion industry for over 15 years as a stylist and bespoke shirting tailor, and now designs the ladies range developed specifically for the store, as well as helps you design your perfect Bespoke or Made-to-Order shirt. She brings her love for hospitality and passion for style into every aspect of Shirt Bar. Their business partner and childhood friend Adam, known as the ‘Coffee Guy’ has dedicated his adult life to making the best coffee and developing a truly beautiful blend of his own, FAT Coffee, which is Shirt Bar’s house blend.

Adam can also take credit for getting both Justin and Louka hooked on Scotch and it wasn’t long before they knew this shared passion of whisky had to be part of their new venture. Shirt Bar truly is a fusion of all the things the owners love and they look forward to sharing them with you…

FAT (For All Things) Coffee is the result of master barista Adam Hofbauer's life-long love for coffee. Over the years he's chewed, sniffed, poured and tasted the deliciously roasted seeds of the coffee cherry from coffee trees all over the world culminating in FAT Coffee’s house blend that consists of 5 Arabica beans, with the rich smooth Columbian as it’s base. Sourced globally and roasted locally in Erskineville, FAT Coffee is made with a whole lot of love, and needless to say it’s Shirt Bar’s bean of choice.
