Terrence is a new collection of stylish clothing made in Melbourne, Australia, out of comfortable,
high quality Terry Towel.

Founded from a want of clothes that look good, feel better and recapture the energy of towel

best when he said ‘towel garments are cool in summer, warm in the winter, and washable at all
times’,” said Rowan.

Terrence clothing will only get better with wear, and promises to age into a true vintage garment.
It‟s sure to be one of your favourites, both the day you buy it and after another five summers of
