Ed Williams Ed has spent over 40 years in the clothing business, long enough to see paisley and tight pants go in and out of fashion 3 times over! Through his outgoing personality and passion for the business he has accumulated a loyal following of friends and customers.
Lowell Williams Lowell has been around the clothing business for as long as he can remember, mostly thanks to his lack of knowledge regarding any child labour laws. As soon as he was old enough to collect allowance, nearly every penny of it went into buying clothes, and not much has changed. As you might have guessed, Lowell is Ed’s son and shares his father’s enthusiasm for fashion and retail. He hopes to pass on Ed's hard work ethic to his own two young sons through the same regiment of child labour.
Sterling Bacon Sterling made Ed Williams Mens Wear his new home away from home after 18 years in the mens wear industry.

Ron Robertson Following a successful career in education, communications, and management – and after being recruited as a model for numerous charitable fashion shows – Ron decided to take the obvious next step and join the business of men’s fashion. Volunteer activities include being chair of the Lougheed House Conservation Society and being active with the Rotary Club of Calgary (Downtown). The new addition of Ron’s grandchildren have served to reinforce his family values. These very values have played a big role in why Ron enjoys working in a family run business.

Ivan Gulak Ivan is the youngest member of the EWMW, who spends much of his time at the store teaching everyone how to use the till computer. Like many of the clothes in the store, Ivan is a European import and but unlike many of the clothes, he has plans to major in Business at the University of British Columbia. His passion for creating the perfect look is what brought him to the store in the first place, and the friendships with staff and customers is what keeps him coming back.
Kieran Reece Kieran is another fresh face at Ed Williams Mens Wear and excited to be a part of a family business so well established in the community. Kieran has spent the last three years working in mens wear while he trains to become a fire fighter. While he is at heart, a hero, Kieran spends his spare time studying the anatomy of birds from the South Pacific and collecting antique cufflinks.
