Our Story

At times, the best ideas arise out of necessity. After working at a Wall Street investment bank for several years, I felt it was time to give my wardrobe a luxury upgrade. The first thing on the list was my fleet of dress shirts – no more regular stock from Brooks Brothers, it was time to advance into the elite echelon of sartorial apparel.

However, after several trips to Madison Avenue boutiques, I discovered that a great-fitting shirt matching my 16.5-inch neck & 38-inch chest just didn’t exist. As a last resort, I opted to go the customized route – a decision that led me into another quandary. On one hand, I came across reputed tailors quoting extravagant prices that bordered on the ridiculous. The other option was dealing with offshore tailors who set up shop in US hotels every six months or so. This option also left much to be desired; the most noticeable flaws were their sub par dedication to customer service and poor workmanship standards.

Faced with this veritable cul-de-sac, the idea for Alexander West custom shirts was born. Our aim is to offer high quality, custom-made dress shirts, and superb customer care to the metropolitan professional. We are pleased to welcome you to the Alexander West experience. - A.W.
