One-On-One Interview with Joel Anthony of Mr. Fierze Men’s Designer Suit Hire

Mr. Fierze Founder Joel Anthony interview with Rogue HommeFinding the right suit or jacket for an upcoming event can be rather daunting, even more so if your budget doesn’t stretch very far. That’s where Mr. Fierze comes in to play, offering a variety of high-end label suits and jackets for hire, you can look your best without breaking the bank. We had a chat to Mr. Fierze founder Joel Anthony to find out what inspired it, and what plans are for the future.

Mr. Fierze - Australia's first men's designer hire
1. What inspired Mr Fierze?
Having been in the marketing and fashion circuit for a few years now, I personally found it such a struggle and a pressure on the wallet to keep up with having to buy something new every single time. Not to mention if you wanted to wear something stand out, you run the risk of never being able to wear it again as well as being photographed and social ‘media’d’ to the point where wearing it again seems like a fashion crime.
Putting all these points together, and also wondering if other men were in the same boat, I decided to take matters into my own hands and purchase 20 suits and give it a go! Little did I know now that other men were feeling the same way and jumped on the concept. Fast forward 6 months later and we are up to 80 suits and have now introduced ties, bow-ties, pocket squares and have also ventured into SELLING shirts and suits too.

2. How has your experience working in the hair industry helped with Mr Fierze ?
Being Head of Marketing of TONI&GUY Australia, I attend many events and I also work with many influencers and business partners who all attend events. Using them as my test market has been really good for the business.

3. Who is Mr Fierze for and or who is your ideal customer?
When I first started Mr. Fierze I thought I was only going to be speaking to a certain type of gent – the style conscious working millennial man who knows labels and wants to stand out.
Little did I know that I would also be catering for;
– grooms and groomsmen parties
– school formals & university balls
– corporate awards nights
– the business traveler who has come in without a suit and needs a suit for an important meeting
– the man who’s put on a bit of weight and can’t seem to fit into the suit sitting in their closet
– the media personality who wants to stand out on the red carpet with a statement jacket or suit
– the high flyer needing something delivered to their hotel last minute
– men attending the races and take their dress sense seriously
– men attending themed dress up parties
The demographic we speak to is now VERY broad!
4. Where do you see Mr Fierze in the next 2 years?
When I came up with the idea, I always had a very clear vision in my head of what we want Mr. Fierze to be in the future – a one-stop shop for men. Whereby it’s a gentleman’s lounge to come in get a scotch or a drink, get a haircut and a shave, a facial, and get fitted in a suit and leave ready to go for your event. Eventually, I would like to be releasing our own line of statement evening suits and jackets as well as delve into made-to-measure offerings.
5. Who or What Inspires you?
I think that’s a very broad question as anything and everything can inspire us in one way or another. I draw a lot of inspiration from the European market and what I see on the catwalks of Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week. And then I might be inspired by influencers and what they’re wearing and what’s trending – and that’s how I select out designer pieces. I am also highly inspired by successful entrepreneurs because at the end of it, this is a business and I want it to flourish and be sustainable!
