Alex Drexler, a San Francisco-native turned New Yorker and the son of J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler, has launched his own clothing line for men and boys. It's called Alex Mill, and it's now available in San Francisco at Castro men's boutique Unionmade. Despite the fact that the "intensely edited" collection is designed for fathers and sons—the senior Drexler is not officially involved with Alex Mill.
Still, it can't be denied that Drexler's fashion education happened at home. "My dad would come home with new clothes for me when I was growing up; I remember this really great pair of pink socks he brought back from Japan," He told The Cut.
No pink socks in this collection, but look for Alex Mill shirts, tees, and jackets for both big and little guys at Unionmade. Drexler calls the line a "uniform for the modern guy," perfect for the Bay's relaxed office attire scene. The boys' clothing is essentially a littler, cuter version of the men's, but don't worry, Drexler doesn't do "too matchy." The silhouettes may be the same, but the details are different. For example, this boy's Mack Plaid Shirt in Blue nicely but not obnoxiously with the men's Mack's Plaid Shirt in Red. Also look for Alex Mill jeans next season at Unionmade. Head-to-toe coordinated outfits on SF guys and their boys—are your ovaries jumping yet?
