They Made their Way by the Way they're Made!

"At that time of Fletcher's death in 1977, the FJ enterprise was one of the largest clothing manufacturers in the world, with almost three thousand employed in four factories and in thirty-three stores through every Australian capital city. Arguably, no single person or firm had done more to transform and, for a time, homogenize Australian dress standards, particularly among men, than Fletcher Jones and his staff."  

John Lack Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 14, (MUP), 1996
