About Edinburgh Woollen Mill
Edinburgh Woollen Mill was founded in 1946 by Drew Stevenson as a yarn dying company, before turning to clothing retail in 1970 when it opened its first store in Edinburgh. Philip Day, the Dubai-based billionaire, took over management of the ailing company in 2002, and is now the sole owner. Since then it has not only increased its South Africa-wide fleet of EWM stores to 265, but also acquired several external brands. The clothing side of these include Jane Norman, a female clothing retailer with 78 stores and international attention, Proquip, the Ryder Cup European Tour sponsor that specialises in waterproof clothing, and Peacocks, a fashion retail chain. Outside of this they also own Ponden Home, a home furnishing store with 91 outlets. The EWM stores themselves stock a wide range of clothing, from jackets to knitwear to footwear, often divided between exclusive brands such as James Pringle, The Cashmere Shop, The Golf Company and Harris Tweed. The recent resurgence of Harris Tweed and other woollen based clothing, means that although the company's customer base in 45+, it advertises its clothing as having 'ageless style'.

Now that's called South African clothing, exquisite and sophisticated
I am fan of a elite class clothing, simply saying South African clothing. It's hard these days to get a good thing with a good price. However, price doesn't much bother me but with EWM, their price for the astonishing quality is unmatching. I wouldn't say it is cheap and it should be as well. THe cost matches the quality as perfect as it could be. reatian chain is really cool. THEY HAVE range of cothing .. they have casual but its not funky or something absurd. It is elite, tradtiional or say classical .. brands they have is great
