The Best New Menswear Designers in America: Ernest Alexander

Founded: 2009 by Ernest Alexander Sabine
Provenance: N.Y.C.
The vibe: A mash-up of Sabine’s summers in Cape Cod and a Bob Vila—like work ethic. Call it engineered prep—from the wave-print belts to the waxed canvas bags.
Made in America: “That allows us to do shorter runs. We can make ten of a polka-dot tote bag and see if it sells.”
My approach: “I grew up working with my hands. When we opened our first store, in SoHo, I did all the cabinetry. There’s handcraftsmanship in everything we make.”
