100% New Zealand owned, we’ve been making school uniforms for over 40 years

 

Argyle 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.

School uniform design

 

Our people-first culture is key in our pursuit to unite school communities

For us, school uniforms are about connecting students with their community. Having a school identity fosters a sense of belonging amongst students and an egalitarian environment. If you’re after a unique look, our in-house design team will work side by side with you to create a school uniform fit for purpose that can be worn with pride. We also have a large range of stock items available for immediate supply with the option to customize with your own logo.

 

 

 

Our focus on quality and service delivers better value solutions

As well as having our own in-house factory, for specialty production and ensuring unparalleled stock support, we also work closely with our partner factories. Our team travels overseas regularly to ensure our rigorous quality and social compliance standards are met. By controlling the whole manufacturing process and owning our patterns, we make sure your school uniform is consistent on colour and fit year on year.

Headmaster, Scots College

 

"Argyle Schoolwear has supplied Scots College with all daywear uniform since 2009 and over this period has provided well designed, high quality garments at affordable prices. They respond quickly to assist with our requirements with a high level of professionalism.

With the introduction of Co-education Senior School in 2020 Argyle Schoolwear has been instrumental in the creation, design and production process of the uniform for our female students.

With their own factory in Auckland, and a high level of stock support, Argyle Schoolwear has always had consistent supply available and has been able to accommodate any special uniform requirements.

Scots College is very happy to recommend Argyle Schoolwear to any other school considering them for uniform supply."

Tony Kane

Principal, Kapiti College

 

"We have been working with Argyle for a number of years, having tried other suppliers. They have provided quality garments at a competitive price, which is obviously important for schools.

Of as much importance is their high level of service and the speed of their response in dealing with any issues. We are very  happy with Argyle as suppliers of Kapiti College uniforms.”

Chris Farry

Accounting Manager, Kings High School

 

"Argyle have provided the school uniform for King’s High School for many years. In short they have consistently provided a high quality garment with excellent service and support.
 
They have actively engaged with us, enabling the constant improvement in our uniform in terms of functionality, appearance, quality and fit. Angela and the team from Argyle willingly assist us to improve the product for our boys, parents and the school. Should there ever be an issue they are open and attentive, enabling any issue to be sorted.

In my experience I can say that the team at Argyle seem to actually care about the student, parents and the school they are ultimately working for and this care carries over into how they operate.

I have no hesitation in recommending them to any other school."
