Bisley has a heritage of more than 55 years and has long been regarded as one of Australia’s most trustworthy solid and honest brands. The company began trading around 1950 when founders Emery Rusti and Alex Menczel commenced dabbling in the garment business. John Woods was the first General Manager and only joined after his pig farming enterprise was wiped out with swine fever. Woods employed Keith Stewart a leading city agent for men’s shirts and he developed the business to the point where a brand name was required. One of the popular sayings of the era was ‘just the shot’ and was used when referring to something that was ‘just right’ or ‘perfect for the occasion’. At that time because so many men had continued recreational shooting after the war, the world rifle championship was a huge event. It was held annually in England in the town of Bisley, the name was adopted and, and the tag line “Bisley – just the shot” used in early promotional activity. Today the trademark of Bisley is a Boar, which symbolizes the strong resilient nature of the Workwear we make.
