100% New Zealand owned, we’ve been making school uniforms for over forty years


Argyle Schoolwear was founded in 1948, specialising in the manufacture of children's clothing. By the 1980's Argyle became solely focused on the manufacture of school uniforms and over the decades Argyle has adapted to an ever changing marketplace. 

Continual investment in the people and technology employed at Argyle has ensured our business has stayed at the forefront of school uniform supply.
