The Story

The Haynes family has hosted generations of bespoke tailors establishing widespread recognition as one of Australia’s forefathers in the distribution of fashionable clothing and accessories. George & Olive’s namesake pays homage to this rich fashion lineage.

Doug Haynes, founder of the business and bespoke tailor came to Mildura and established the business in 1956. The business quickly grew, and in the 1970’s he introduced ready made clothing. During that time Lee denim, the original jeans, were one of the biggest and fastest selling lines the business stocked. Doug learnt all the tricks of the trade from his parents, George & Olive. George was the original bespoke tailor from Melbourne and his wife, Olive, also a creative and avid patron of the trade.
