When John S Larke landed on the shores of Australia in 1895, the land was still six years away from becoming a federation, when six independent British colonies would band together to become states of a new nation. Although the first fleet of settlers had arrived just over a century prior, in 1788, Australia soon became known for its natural beauty and many resources.

Hanes Brands Australia

The garment industry is dynamic. Particularly at the retail level, brands come and go and goods change hands at margins that would make a supermarket weep.
