 our design story

“This is the best pant I’ve ever purchased!” 
This is something we hear often from our wholesale and retail customers alike.
It's down to the fit, the quality of the fabric, the feel on the body, the value, the style longevity, the versatility of styling, the ease of care and the finer details.
Along with the knowledge that they are supporting a local and ethical brand promoting Australian manufactured product.

the Philosophy Australia team

We collaborate like a family with suppliers, contractors and staff.
We treat our customers as part of our extended family, and strive to consistently exceed expectation in design, quality and service. Keeping production local means we can maintain a high level of quality, turn around product quickly, ensure a local fashion presence with ethical and sustainable production.

customer testimonials

We believe in our product and love that our customers do too. 
Philosophy is a true Australian brand still proudly made in Australia, which is always welcomed by my clients. The quality and fit of their pants, along with the variety of styles and fabrics they offer make them an easy go to in my stores. The Philosophy team are always helpful, and listen to feedback to keep delivery what their customers are asking for.
