We have always specialised in Australian Made uniforms and continue the family tradition today. Where we started having garments sewn in the eveing by our family members night some 80years ago, we now manufacture all our uniforms out of an ethically accreditted factory in Sydney.

We have been innovaters within our industry, designing and creating many uniforms that are now the industry standard. 

Family is a big part of where we are today. Fraser and Hughes remains owned and operated by same family that opened its doors in 1927, unlike many in our industry. One Family. Five Generations. Over 80 years Experience.
