As we approach our 70th year as a fashion label and venture further across Australia, we decided it was about high time that you get to know a little bit more about Peter Jackson.
Where It All Began
The brand's origin story harks back to 1948, when the original Peter Jackson, opened up a humble barbershop of Little Bourke St with his siblings. While initially just a barbershop, the family started to expand into the menswear market, selling small accessories and ties. This sowed the seeds for the first full collection and evolution into a fully-fledged menswear brand.

Our Labels Explained

From size to build to personal preference, we are dedicated to delivering the best possible fit. This is our why our range of suits and shirts are split into two separate labels; The slim-fit "Orange Label" and the tailored cut "Black Label".
