Balmain, shop

This commercial and residential building is located along Darling Street, in the inner west suburb of Balmain. "Blokes" is a shop that stocks clothing, shoes, accessories, gadgets and gifts for men. Bloke is a slang term for a man common in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

  1. Cool name for the place, and quite appropriate given its purpose.

  2. yes we say bloke here in NZ too, I like the building, very similar to what we see in Auckland city.

  3. Would not find a store by this name in the U.S. If there was one, it had better be a men's clothing store or they would get in trouble for sexism.

  4. I like the building! Blokes id used here in Canada too but not too much.

    1. Interesting. I didn't think it would be. Seems there are more similarities between Australians and Canadians than I thought.
