Our History

Four generations of family dedicated to quality and fashion.


Foster’s Menswear in Ararat has been making local men, and more recently women, look their best for as long as anyone can remember. The Foster’s story goes back 110 years when William Foster rented a small single front shop and began operation as W.J.Foster Men’s and Boy’s Outfitter and Mercer.  And a tradition was born.
