Good Old Fashioned Customer Service

Our Promise

Colombus & Ware are proud to be one of Christchurch’s leading independently owned and operated menswear stores. Our owner operator structure and our passion for men’s fashion mean we are able to provide you with the best in quality men’s clothing. 

Our 65 year history means excellent relationships with our suppliers and much more buying experience. We only stock the finest of brands such as Rembrandt, R.M. Williams, Gazman and Cutler & Co. 

Good old fashioned customer service is our focus, and is what keeps our customers coming back for more. We want our clients looking the best, that means if you’re not happy we will bend over backwards to fix it – plus by talking directly to the owners you don’t have to jump through hoops in the process!

We are also all-round good guys, we appreciate a bit of good humour and are always keen for a joke to be shared. In-fact we are convinced that some customers drop in just for a laugh or to talk tips.

Our mission is to provide all our customers with the clothing they need, whatever they may be looking for. We aim to offer a premium service for all our customers, and make sure they don’t just come out looking sharp, but are receiving the clothes at excellent value. Everyone who visits the store is made to feel welcome, and everyone who leaves will be completely satisfied. 




Our Store

Colombus & Ware has been serving discerning men for 65 years. The 2011 earthquakes necessitated a shift from our central city Colombo St site to Merivale Mall in May 2011. We have a new look new look store, still featuring our classic and stylish range of men’s clothing, but offering a wider choice and selection.  

Colombus & Ware’s new menswear store has been specifically fitted out with ease of shopping in mind. The new look reflects an adherence to up-to-date contemporary men’s style with a classic edge.

Although smaller than its previous location customers are offer appreciating the well laid out, well stocked environment and the range of men’s clothing on offer.
