Since 1986, Joseph has made it his passion to present Adelaide with the highest quality men’s fashion from all around the world.

Istanbul-born, Joseph attained extensive product knowledge and extraordinary experience through his early years spent immersed in the magnificent textile trade, “I started working in menswear from a young age in the cut-throat bazaars of my home town and then later here in the competitive Adelaide retail market.” From humble beginnings, Joseph’s remarkable determination and savvy business mindset led him to the successful and talented apparel entrepreneur he is today, “I started selling clothes at the Austral Hotel, until I finally opened my first store on Rundle Street,” explains Joseph. From cutting made to measure suits in the backroom of his Rundle Street store early in his career, Joseph Uzumcu now delivers world class men’s garments, premium shoes and trendy accessories in his two-level Gawler Place emporium.

From an extensive list of outstanding achievements in the fabulous field of tailored ensembles, Joseph pleasingly reflects on his most proud professional accomplishment, the creation of his own shoe line called BVLOCK60. “Shoes have forever been a passion of mine and I have always imagined creating my own label,” says Joseph who keenly explains, “Shoes are the most important part of any outfit, especially for a man. The shoes you choose can ‘make’ the suit.. You can tell a lot about a person by the shoes they wear.”

Stylishly mindful of the constant changes in men’s fashion, Joseph is always tastefully ‘on trend’ from top to toe, “Over the past ten years I’ve seen a shift in the younger generation, they are much more fashion conscience now. We have many grooms enter the store seeking something distinctive, whether it is the colour of the suit, the length of the trousers or the lining of the jacket.”

Step foot into the astonishing one-stop shop and you’ll be offered more than a closet full impeccable slimline suits and exceptional fabrics. Throughout his many wonderful years in the industry, Joseph’s commendable vision and wholehearted approach to customer service has remained the same, consistently greeting customers with a strong black espresso and a kiss on the cheek. “I treat all my clientele like family. We create an experience and a service that brings people back... I know all the details and lives of my clients. There is no point being in the business if you cannot have a laugh and a smile. It is about making the customer happy.”

favourite industry leader...

I love to follow the designer Paul Smith. His aesthetic and designs are simple and very ‘European’ inspired. I have learnt through him that style is more about what looks good on you rather than following a trend!

inspiration...

Creativity and uniqueness inspires me; you must generate interest through your own ingenuity and the uniqueness of your product. Clients have to desire your product in order for you to be successful. You want people to walk in and be truly amazed. I travel four to eight times a year and all my ideas come from my experiences. I take in what is new, interesting and exciting around the world. Traveling keeps me connected with what is ‘happening’ and fashionable in Europe.

most proud of...

Everything that I have achieved. You see many small retail shops closing these days due to the change in the market and consumer demands. I am proud Joseph Uzumcu has made it through. It takes a lot of hard work and you do make mistakes, however it eventually pays off. I achieved this with the help, love and support of my amazing wife and incredible employees.

a fresh approach to weddings...

We have had the same approach to weddings for the past twenty five years and it is still applicable to new clients today. We pride ourselves on supplying unique and stylish garments to men and presenting the best customer service in town.

today’s trends...

The rise of the dinner suit, the love of blue and the overall importance of the groom. The groom has now become (almost) as important as the bride, or at least wants to stand out as much as his leading lady, opting for stylish and eye-catching pieces such as burgundy dinner jackets.

a typical day at work...

It can certainly change from day to day. People come in, purchase suits and we have a bit of a laugh.

if I wasn’t in the industry I would be...

A restaurant owner.

best compliment...

I love when people compliment or praise the store!

what the future holds...

This year has been quite a significant change for us. We have recently moved from our location in Gawler Place, where we have been for twenty five years, to a space next door. The near future involves a lot of transformations within the store, moving merchandise and product around and expanding downstairs.

one thing about yourself people don’t know...

I am Turkish!

first thing I do when I get to work...

I peruse my schedule for the day, flick through my emails and check in with my staff. Then of course I grab a coffee and light up my cigar.

josph uzumcu suit store - brides of adelaide

favourite place to eat and drink...

Amalfi’s and Ruby Red Flamingo. I also love the Lotus Lounge. It is very relaxed with good music and I can also enjoy a cigar.

a song always in my head...

Anything by Sezen Aksu, a beautiful singer from Turkey. Her songs are instantly stuck in my head every time I travel to Turkey or something reminds me of there.

my wardrobe can’t live without...

The most important thing to have in your wardrobe is a good pair of jeans. Throughout every season jeans are the most versatile piece of clothing a man or woman can own. It is also important that the jeans are good quality!

top of the shopping list...

Shoes.

can’t live without...

SoundCloud, cigars and coffee.

my idea of a good time...

Sitting with a cigar in my hand and listening to DJ Tarkan.

what makes you laugh?

John Cleese – he always makes me laugh.
