I have a sneaking suspicion the Masked Barfly has a few Mandatory suits in his wardrobe.

And now the Cuba St store is celebrating a special birthday – 15 years in business!!!

Designers Clare Bowden and Fiona Edwards first met while training in fashion and fashion textiles at Wellington Polytechnic. Now they have a league of well dressed fans which includes All Blacks, musos, hospitality types, artists, theatre peeps and more.

They’ve launched a new website and there’s a $1500 wardrobe to be won. All you have to do is add a picture of yourself sporting your Mandatory gears to the online album or on their facebook page. Easy as.
