Create Jobs, Buy American, Go America! Alex Maine – “Alex” meaning “defender” and “Maine” meaning “homeland.” The company stands up for the American economy by bringing textile jobs back to America, producing 100% of its product within the U.S. Its men’s collection launches simultaneously with the opening of the Alex Maine flagship store on the famed Sunset Strip in Hollywood and an e-commerce site: www.alexmaine.us.
The inspiration for Alex Maine comes from founder Bron Heussenstamm. The grandson of a Pearl Harbor survivor, with two cousins currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, Bron is passionate about reversing the outsourcing of American jobs (In 2009, 97% of all U.S. clothing purchased was produced by foreign factories).
Alex Maine will focus its initial collection on mastering the important non-denim pants in a young man’s wardrobe, bringing never before seen cuts, fabrics, and washes to pants. Alex Maine will roll out these pants along with t-shirts, hoodies and thermals for spring/summer 2011. Initially, the collection will be sold exclusively via the Alex Maine store and website.
The Alex Maine flagship store is located at 8025 Sunset Blvd, amongst some of the most well-known real estate in the world.
