There’s nothing we love more than a label that’s full of clothes you’ll actually wear. We’re talking utilitarian pants with just the right pockets, shirts that hit exactly where they should, and stylish silhouettes that we feel comfortable in. Right now, Alex Mill is doing that better than most.
The label was founded by the son of J.Crew CEO Mickey Drexler, and their current creative director is a former J.Crew employee too. So it’s no surprise that their vibe manages to be classic, current, and slightly preppy all at once. The brand started with the goal of creating one perfect t-shirt, but has since relaunched online with the kind of elevated basics that are so in right now.
Our favorites? These cotton twill trousers rank pretty high. As winter approaches, its easy to transition these pants into a warm-weather outfit with the addition of the perfect oversize chunky knit and boots. Right now, we’re weather with a white button-down and smart loafers. The cut is so good, the label even made them in denim too.
Speakning of button downs, we can’t get enough of the crisp cotton shirts the label favors. Slightly oversized, 100% stylish, they’re key to getting that high-fashion tomboy style that’s all the rage right now. This blue-and-white stripe with a crest is preppy perfection, and you can wear it through winter and spring. This striped pullover feels a little more casual, perfect for slumming around in cabins or whatever cozy long weekend trip you have planned.
One of the most iconic Alex Mill designs is the perfect combination of practical and trendy: their Expedition Jumpsuit. The piece is as comfortable as it is stylish, making it a go-to for us. Plus, when you throw this thing on, you don’t have to think about the rest of your outfit because it is your whole outfit.
