Neville Quist was born in 1952 in Glenelg, South Australia. Neville is a member of the 'Quist' tennis dynasty. Neville Quist founded clothing label Saville Row in 1973 in Adelaide, South Australia. In 1989 Quist developed the first animated patterned mens socks. The label attached to these products was Johnny Dangerous and was sold throughout 13 European countries. Pacific Dunlop entered into a licensing agreement with Quist, as did Bonds Underwear. Michael Jackson attempted to use the brand Dangerous on items of clothing for his 'Dangerous' tour but was unsuccessful in doing so. Consequently, Jackson, through Triumph International, attempted to reach a resolution with Quist. The outcome of this is unknown. Quist was nominated 5 times as 'Australia's Leading Menswear Fashion Designer' at the Australian Fashion Awards (between 1991–1996). Quist collaborated with Elders in 2001 and became their international design consultant and developed Quist superfine knitwear which specialises in Australian merino wool knitwear. Quist knitwear has been described as the 'finest knitwear in the world'. Saville Row is stocked Australia-wide and internationally.
