While relaxing by the pool, having a cool drink, listening to Triple J’s hottest 100 and celebrating Australia Day why not take it one step further? Instead of wearing Australian flag products made in Asia this Australia Day, we’ve found the perfect outfits for you that are 100% Aussie owned!
Swimwear – because Aussie’s know how to do it right:
We Are Handsome – Since 2009 Jeremy Somers and Indhra Chargoury have created, designed and produced bright, colourful and daring swim and body suits. Each piece of fabric is 100% Australian and each suit is manufactured in Australia with love.
Why we love them: Each piece has an outrageous print where everything has been placed just in the right place!

Isola – A swimwear company where the gorgeous (Australian model) Megan Gale is the Creative Director. Originally approached by the Seafolly director (another Aussie swim brand), Isola are separately sold pieces aimed at women in their 30s to 40s who are chic, stylish and sexy.
Why we love them: They are a great brand if you are a bit busty as their sizes go up to DD/E.

AussieBum – The company started by director Sean Ashby in Sydney after not being able to find the style of nylon swimmers he grew up with. The men’s swimwear and underwear store is a multi-billion dollar company with all products being manufactured in Australia.
Why we love them: They are fun, lively and they go back to that original speedo with a bit of flare.

Mambo – A swim/surf/skate wear company that all started over a beer at a pub in the 1980’s where founder Dare Jennings thought “any idiot can put a logo on a t-shirt and turn a profit selling it for 50% above wholesale” .
Why we love them: They are old-school and we grew up decked out in their gear!
