In 1988, Ed Williams took a risk. He saw an opportunity to provide quality Canadian- and European-made men's clothing, which could be tailored in-house by the best in the business, in a relaxed and casual shopping atmosphere.
It turns out Ed was right – over 30 years later, Ed Williams Mens Wear has doubled it's space, its stock and the brands and services it offers. With onsite, full service tailoring staff, an espresso machine, a beer fridge and a TV that always has a game on, customers are treated to an enjoyable shopping experience – complete with panoramic views of the Rockies in Crowfoot Village Shopping Center and free parking right outside.
While high staff turnover has become a given when doing business in Calgary, Ed Williams Mens Wear staff are as loyal as the customers. Why leave? When visiting us you are always guaranteed to see a familiar face.
When Ed first opened the store, he catered primarily to sharp-looking professional attire. However, with the emergence of “Dressy Casual” , Ed’s son Lowell has helped bring easy new trends into the hands of customers, making them feel confident in their style when they leave the store.
