Just a store ! Hardly 'flagship' - I think it tries to be 'European' or perhaps Lauren like but RMWilliams quality doesn't seem to stack up -

OK, I've had some great experiences with RM Williams over the years. I've drunk bundy and coke from my (now 34 year old) cubans at a B&S, fell in the fire in my molies and crutched plenty of crossies in my longhorn jeans. Basically they are pretty indestructible and good quality. BUT ... I was recently given a red RM's... More

The lady staff was very helpful and guided me through the various colours/styles etc. Like the men's more than the women's so ended up getting the men's boots in chestnut with rubber sole. Boots fit snugly and are super comfortable. Can see myself taking them for long walks (when I eventually get off the couch)!

I have 2 pair of these expensive boots and the surface of the leather is cracking and flaking. Reply from RMW was don't use any shoe product unless it is lanolin based with no alcohol content. Will not pay the price for these boots with this problem that leather will not accept the usual range of shoe polish and creams... More

Just like a previous reviewer, I am also very disappointed at R.M. Williams' approach to customer care, and the quality of their products. For over 15 years, I have owned several pairs of R.M. Williams boots. I have always been happy to pay the extra price for their products (as opposed to Blundstones or Rossi), as they have worn very... More

I have had two pairs of craftsmen (one black, one brown) for 6 years, wear them alternately for work and casual and they are still as good as new.

After a long absence of buying RM Williams clothing of which I have a lot, last weekend, I bought a pair of $130 RMW blue jeans at the Chadstone outlet, the product being an exquisite fit with which I'm really happy, I having gone there only to buy a tin of RMW leather dressing for two pairs of RMW work...

Apparently this is the quintessential establishment to buy the most authentic Australian menswear. They have ladies' items as well, but seems their focus is on menswear. Beautiful quality raincoats, slacks, sweaters, etc. Shoes are the most comfortable, according to my Australian male shopper friend...and great looking too...especially liked the plain suede ones available in a couple of colors...

Fabulous range and friendly staff. They were very helpful with proper fitting of a pair of boots and they offer an alteration service available. Great shopping experience, located in a unique shopping precinct.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
