To say there is a vast range of alternative men's clothing is not an exaggeration. There is a staggering number of subcultures that have given life to some of the most exciting and iconic styles in men's clothing over the years. 

The 1980s inspired styles like Glam Metal, Visual Kei, Punk, New Romantic, Skaters, Goth, Skinheads, Hip Hop, and many more. Today, youngsters on TikTok are creating the E-girl and E-boy styles among a slew of new looks. That is also where you will find the alt boys. Alt boys are teenagers who rebel against societal norms, dressing in clothes that combine Goth and emo kids.  

Here is a very short list of alternative styles for men:

  • Cold Weather Combat
  • Serpents & Snakes
  • Urban Techwear Style
  • Love Struck
  • Playing With Fire
  • Protection Collection
  • Steampunk Fashion
  • Post-Apocalyptic Styles
  • Gothic & Dark Fashion
  • Tribal Fashion
  • Rock and Roll Style & Stagewear
  • Pride
  • Desert Ninja

For Australian men who are into alternative fashion, there's no shortage of men's alternative clothing stores in Australia. We pick out the best for you here.

Local Threads

For Aussie men looking for individual and unique clothes, Local Threads has become the go-to platform. The online store sells ethical Australian clothing that the modern, responsible man is looking for. The online store carries established sustainable Aussie brands for men such as Rusty, ORTC, Escape Apparel, and many more.

OtherWorld Fashion

The company was started by Utku because he couldn’t find stylish alternative menswear for himself. If you are a guy who refuses to follow the pack, OtherWorld Fashion has clothes and accessories to recreate yourself in any of the following styles:

  • Gothic
  • Steampunk
  • Victorian
  • Pirate
  • Medieval
  • Punk
  • Rock & Metal
  • Post Apocalyptic
  • CyberPunk
  • Vampire

And don't think for a moment this means just a perfunctory piece of clothing or shoes that hint at a certain style. No, you can shop for the complete look. For instance, if you are going for a Steampunk look, you can indulge in the precise pants, boots, hats, goggles, masks, vests, coats, bracelets, gloves, and bags to leave no doubt about your preferred style.

Beserk was established way back in 2000 and has become Australia's largest alternative online store. Apart from alternative fashion for men and women, Beserk also sells alternative cosmetics, hair dyes, accessories, and homeware. 

The company prides itself in only selling officially licensed and 100% genuine articles, which are stored in its warehouse in Windsor, Queensland, stating on its website that it's not a drop-shipping company that sells cheap copies.

Beserk offers a truly voluminous range of alternative clothing for men, which even includes a range of alternative men's underwear and socks. And the list of top brands they carry is as long as your arm. Whatever you're looking for, you're likely to find it at this Australian clothing company.

Electric Witch

Born on the Sunshine Coast, Electric Witch is Australia’s latest alternative fashion brand. The Australian brand says it creates unique designs for the weirdos, the witches, the goths, the punks, the vamps, and the freaks.

Electric Witch sells jackets, tees, shorts, hoodies, crop tops, streetwear, gym wear, accessories, hats, and more. Shipping is free in Australia with purchases of over $99, but that's not what the company's customers are raving about.

On Trustpilot, loads of customers praise the store for its quality products, amazing designs, smooth delivery service, and excellent communication. Way to go!
