The vintage inspired label Strangely Normal has its home in O’Connell St in Auckland The design partnership, Dutton & Cox, are Mid Century Modern enthusiasts and the well curated range in the store reflects this passion.
There literally is something for everyone and when you walk into the store you realise there’s so much more to menswear than what you may have experienced. You could just enjoy the space, take in the colours and ambience, not necessarily buy anything but walk away a little richer for the experience with the knowledge that if there’s a certain thing you need you’ll be sure to return to make a satisfying purchase. Accessories range from hats to spats!
Long famous for their NZ made shirts, the store is a go-to if you want to make your mark, win friends, or alienate others- if this be your wish- you can achieve this in a shirt selected from the range of dynamic prints.
Alongside the funkier prints are the timeless Liberty of London fabrics. Forty three years in the industry means the pair can also draw from their tailoring knowledge which has led to some interesting film projects where they’ve tailored for Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hugh Laurie, Danny Huston, Tommy Lee Jones, Martin Clunes and more.
