In April 1949 Anne and Rudi Landecker founded Pall Mall Neckwear . Using the finest imported Fabrics from Germany and Switzerland , Anne a seamstress made the ties and Rudi went on the road to sell them together with his Shoe range.
The name Pall Mall originates from the meaning "a hand to hand scurmish" as it was a daily battle to build a company and a brand as an immigrant with little English .Rudi's Brother owned Lord Tie in Cape Town which Rudi bought from Him some time later. Rudi and Anne had 2 daughters Evelyn and Joan . Evelyn and her Husband Eppie ran Lord Tie in CapeTown until they immigrated and Joan and her Husband Bill Freedman ran Pall Mall in Durban .
Sadly bill died in 2005 ,Tracey and Joan continued to run Pall Mall and today Tracey still enjoys consulting Joan for her experience and wisdom .
As of 2021 Pall has been taken over by Nevin Munian.
