Ernest Alexander History
Started by Ernest Alexander himself, he created a clothing line that exuberates what the American dream is all about. He comes from generations of fashion design. Starting with his grandmother and great grandmother, coming from Europe in the 1950's, and bringing their seamstress talents to the USA. It was in his blood, and he continued on with his passion. Ernest Alexander strives to make men's accessories with old and traditional methods, using the finest skill and craftsmanship.
His label was started 5 years ago, and was launched with the intention of creating and selling the perfect men's messenger bag. Before starting his own company he searched endlessly for the perfect messenger bag. The search became pointless. He had no luck finding one. So, off he went to create it himself. His vision was a bag that was refined enough for work, but rugged enough to stand the test of time. They are all handmade with superb lines and edges. The materials used are all traditional. But, crafted to have a modern flare. The heart of his concept though, was durability. The "Hudson Messenger Bag" was the first style made. It took almost a year to develop, which portrays how exquisite these bags are. Since then they have slowly expanded their label to include a wide range of bags, travel pieces, accessories and clothing.
