Grundies ready to snap back
WHEN clothing company Pacific Brands moved its manufacturing offshore, more than 2000 Australians lost their jobs. While Strathmore resident Tony Vass survived the job cuts, he lost faith with his employer and put his hand up for a redundancy package.
That was in early 2009. Just over 12 months later Mr Vass has launched his own underwear brand and is adamant that with a new approach and hard work, clothing manufacturing still has a place in Australia.

A STRATHMORE entrepreneur wants Melbourne blokes to get into his underpants in a bid to beat the bottom-line undercutting of local manufacturing jobs.

New Brief Encounters
Former Pacific Brands employee, Tony Vass, started his own Australian-made underwear business after watching local jobs being forfeited to China when the apparel giant switched its manufacturing abroad last year. "I witnessed the carnage firsthand as 3000 people lost their jobs to China,'' Vass says. ''I always wanted to run my own Aussie underwear brand so this was the motivation I needed."
