The Myer Menswear department is set to become the exclusive department store home of Australian menswear tailor and clothier M.J.Bale. A brand known for its elegant layered separates and soft, deconstructed tailoring.
M.J. Bale prides itself on a masculine look that focuses on comfort, fit and authenticity which is achieved working with small-town artisans from across the world who are at the top of their fields.
M.J. Bale is a popular Australian brand delivering a range of superior quality that Myer customers are sure to love. The sports fans will appreciate the fact the M.J. Bale are the official clothier partner of the Australian Soccer team, Australian cricket team, Australian polo team and local Super rugby sides, the NSW Waratahs, ACT Brumbies and Western Force.
“We are thrilled to welcome the enormously popular M.J.Bale brand to Myer in September 2014 as a department store exclusive. M.J.Bale delivers supremely tailored garments of integrity that our customer base will no doubt love. It is such an important brand that will be a fantastic addition to our already strong menswear offering,” says Ms Karen Brewster, Myer Group General Manager of Menswear.
September 2014 sees the label launch exclusively into seven Myer stores nationwide, including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide.
Matt Jenson, M.J. Bale Founder & CEO, looks foward to a successful relationship with the Myer Designer family and says “We are excited to be a part of the re-invigorated menswear offering. The Myer concession model offers us the opportunity to bring the M.J. Bale customer experience and product offering to the Myer customer. We see a really great opportunity working with Myer and setting up our concession stores in
key locations throughout the country,”
Matt Jensen grew up in rural Yass the son of a woolgrower and grazier, sparking his merino wool appreciation. His passion for designing menswear came later, when he was working in finance in London and designed and manufactured the kit for his local rugby side.
Matt’s style sees heavy structured padding and weight stripped from coats and jackets which not only makes them lighter but also makes them much more wearable in Australia’s harsh climate.

My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
