The 2020 standard

Introducing the latest ready-to-wear collection for gentlemen of the future, showcased at SA Fashion Week.


We design and manufacture clothing for business corporates. All design and manufacturing is done in-house. We are located in the textile hub of Johannesburg. Franc Elis was established in 2003, first as a designer-uniform supplier. Since then, we are committed to giving our customers the best possible value for money, with our efficient staff who are available to offer professional advice and personalised attention. We will offer you design, colours and fabric that are suitable for your special brand and environment.


We aim to balance functionality and design. Before we begin the design process, we learn your corporate identity, understanding your target market, immediate objectives, the culture and origins of the founders or of the organisation, if there's any segmentation of department within your organisation, we consider the climate conditions and location of the company, as well as the employee age group and culture.


We have the latest technology of equipment at our factory and are working with premium quality fabric supplier ready to assist us in producing medium and large quantity orders within reasonable amount of time. Our highly skilled and well motivated human resource ensure a quick turn around time within our SABS certified production facilities. All garments are produced in-house while specialised articles such as belts, shoes and bags are outsourced from reputable partners.


All in all, we are cost-competitive, have great quality control management in-house and with our subcontractors. In addition to our state of art automated machines for pressing, blocking, creasing and folding, we use solfware to grade and make markers qhich allow us to minimise wastage and control cost so that you get value for more but also great efficiency.


Opening our doors in 2003, our label is respected for its sophisticated and well-tailored garments, but mostly as a South African shirt authority.


We ended 2019 by introducing a ready-to-wear sophistication for gentlemen of the future. This collection is inspired by the dress code of the European elite, especially in Francophone Africa at the beginning of the twentieth century. It is an exploration of power through fashion.
