Ken Cook Menswear

In 1936, Ken Cook opened his first menswear store in Manuka, Canberra. In doing so he set a standard in men’s clothing that is yet to be surpassed.


Ken Cook concentrated exclusively on men’s quality clothing, specialised tailoring and superior service.

Over the years Ken Cook has opened a number of stores in Canberra namely in Manuka, Kingston and Civic. These stores cemented Ken Cook Menswear as the destination store for the well-dressed men in Canberra.

Ken’s son, Robert Cook, preserved this standard when he took over the business in 1970. Concentrating on the flagship store in Civic and finally moving to the current location in Baileys Corner. Over the past decade Mark Cook has followed in his grandfather's and father's footsteps, continuing the family legacy - A standard of service backed by years of dedication and experience.
