Pickings and Parry
A one-stop shop for all your menswear and grooming needs in Fitzroy
In the past few years, old-school barbershops have made a big comeback and one of the coolest ones in Melbourne is Pickings and Parry. Stepping through the door is like entering a time machine; beard oils, pomades and moustache wax are kept in vintage wooden cabinets along with straight razors and an assortment of shaving equipment that wouldn't look out of place in a museum. But the grooming doesn't stop with a precise hair trim and shave. There's also a carefully curated selection of accessories for sale — such as belts, watches and wallets — as well as dapper work clothing, shoes and even some stationery.
