Hi, welcome to the Safari suit website. The Safari Suit is designed for fashion and function. Not only is it a joy to wear but very versatile.
This website originated because a group of friends have been getting together every year to celebrate the safari suit and dress up in safari suits and other 1970’s fashion including accessories. We celebrate by visiting various establishments around Adelaide. Our aim has been, and continues to be, to celebrate the safari suit in all its glory – world wide – so if you wear one please let us know by sending a photo and your safari suit story and we’ll post it on this site.
The safari suit can be worn anywhere from the steaming hot jungle of the Congo to the fashionably cool urban jungle. The Go-Anywhere safari suit will allow entry into the grungiest pit or the swishiest nightclub or casino.
Totally fashionable, totally drip dry, with it’s practicability of a multiple choice of pockets that could house the form guide and winning tickets out on the track, or important accessories such as sequined sunnies and frizz comb out on the town. It is a real winner with the ladies also.
The ladies are not left out, however, as you will see in the photos and award winners pages. You can also read all about the Safari suit pub crawl history.
The website changed from a static website, that was a bit of pain to update and didn’t happen that often, to a blog format in October 2006. As this site is mainly based on the annual safari suit pub crawl event the archives reflect this. The plan is now to update more regularly with just about anything safari suit related. For posterity here’s a screengrab of the old website:
