Introducing Ej Menswear
Well hello there and welcome to our newly created blog! Took us long enough, yes, we know, but it’s finally here, up and running.
This blogging thing is something completely new for me and possibly for you too. To be honest, I’m very cautious about what and how I post on the Internet, so you can only imagine - it took me some time to gather all my thoughts and actually start typing. Is it just me or is there really such a thing as the pressure of first blog? Like think about it - it's the first one, so you gotta make it good, it’s like first impression - you can’t take it back. AND it's gonna be out there forever. For anyone to see… Maybe it's just all in my head, that's what I tend to do - I think and I think and I think some more, then I rethink everything again until nothing makes sense anymore. Anyone else the same? No? Just me?!?
Aaaanyways... After hours and hours of frantic research on Google, e-books, magazines (basically everything and anything that I could put my hands/eyes on), I decided on the first topic. Not to sound too vain, but it became obvious that it should be about us. Now when I say “us”, I don’t mean you and me “us”, I mean the Ej Menswear team and myself “us”. As much as we would like it, not everybody knows who we are or what we do (not yet anyways, maybe someday). Makes sense doesn’t it?
So lets get acquainted. We started our journey as a premium menswear store in 1994, offering quality brands at excellent prices. Men’s fashion trends have come a loooong way since then and so have we, I mean Ej’s been in business for more than 20 years, so we must be doing something right, right?
You can find our award - winning store in the heart of Sligo, in the northwest of Ireland. Oh, yeah, you heard right - award - winning! It’s been voted “Best Independent Retailer in the UK and Ireland”. Not bad for a small independent retail business, huh?
The customer really is a priority here, quality service is a promise, vast choice is guaranteed plus the lads are always up for some craic, which will make your shopping experience that much more enjoyable, even for the guys, who’re not too keen on shopping for new threads. If you're ever in Sligo - pop in and make sure of it yourself - the staff is friendly and they don't bite (as far as I know).
We took the next brave step and launched our online shop www.ejmenswear.com in summer of 2015. Trust me when I say - it wasn't easy. We're still working on it every day, trying to make the online shopping experience as easy and convenient as we can for you guys! It takes a lot of time, patience, effort and sometimes even sleepless nights. Not my nights though, no, I sleep like a baby (not that it’s relevant, but why not share anyways?!). I’m talking about the guys who’re developing, coding, encrypting (and all those other fancy/boring programming words) the site and making all that possible, bet they’ve had a few of those. Big shout out to the guys! Cheers!
Bare in mind we’re new in the blogosphere and we’re learning this as we go. We'll try to keep things interesting and versatile as much as possible, telling you all about what's hip and happening in our world and the world of men’s fashion. Thank you for joining us on this new and exciting journey and remember – quality never goes out of fashion!
