Our design story
“This is the best pant I’ve ever purchased!” This is something we hear often from our wholesale and retail customers alike.
It's down to the fit, the quality of the fabric, the feel on the body, the value, the style longevity, the versatility of styling, the ease of care and the finer details.
Along with the knowledge that they are supporting a local and ethical brand promoting Australian manufactured product.
Our team
We collaborate like a family with suppliers, contractors and staff.
We treat our customers as part of our extended family, and strive to consistently exceed expectation in design, quality and service. Keeping production local means we can maintain a high level of quality, turn around product quickly, ensure a local fashion presence with ethical and sustainable production.

    I have been stocking Philosophy in my boutiques for many years now, and have always found it to be a brand that is sought after by discerning customers. Style, fit, quality and comfort are all factors that make it an ongoing success for both me and my customer base, topped off by the fact that it is predominantly Australian made.

    When I first opened my little boutique almost 18 years ago, I was advised by other retailers to stock Philosophy, and it had the best fitting pant in the market. 18 years on, I am still stocking their fabulous range. The company has always been so approachable.

    Whats not to love about Philosophy clothing? I am proud to have such a beautiful AUSTRALIAN MADE label in my shop. Quality, style and affordable prices mean that I have garments that have my customers returning for more, every season.
    But behind the label, as an owner, I appreciate the great service that ‘Team Philosophy’ provides. Thank you!

    Unbeatable comfort and style.  The Liane Moriarty Pants have become my go to pants for a snappy work outfit, but also for lunch dates with friends.  Incredible quality, comfort and fit.

    Comfy and lovely.  The Droppie Pants are so easy to wear and I always receive lots of lovely compliments when I have them on.  No ironing for the win! If you're after a looser fit and a more prominent drop, then size up. I sized true - it's a slight drop with an elegant silhouette.
