Malcolm Alexander is an American Fashion Designer, Stylist, and Creative Entrepreneur. He is the founder and head of design for Malcolm Alexander, a Los Angeles based bespoke suit company.
Alexander (above left) moved to Los Angeles to attend law school, upon enrollment at Loyola School of Law, Malcolm began designing ties and apprenticing at local tailor shops while working as a Stylist at JCREW. While working as Head Stylist at JCREW Alexander was picked up by Banana Republic, a brand of the GAP Corporation, to lead its creative stylist team. After working at Banana Republic, he launched his own label Malcolm Alexander and his first suit collection in 2014.
Alexander’s inspiration comes from his father, James Bond, and Lapo Elkann based on their fearlessness, elegance, and of course, their taste in suits. After launching Malcolm Alexander, he teamed up with his best friend and college mate Geoff Wahlman (above right) to help operate the business. The two sought to ‘create a unique experience’ that merged “Tradition and Innovation”. Their line of menswear was launched as a response to the expansive acceptance of casual outfits in the lieu of business formal attire. The suits designed by Alexander are considered as distinctive in style and structure. In the beginning, Alexander and Wahlman started their business going door to door as a mobile service. Two years later, Malcolm Alexander opened its first showroom in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. The business exists as an appointment only model to ensure that each meeting is focused on the client.
