Like Father, Like Son

Alex Mill's casual basics are no hand-me-downs


While some dads simply can't be pleased — don't even get him started on those bozos in Washington — getting into their line of business is sure to make most proud.

That being said, J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler must be beaming.

Just last year, his son Alex Drexler launched Alex Mill, a slick line of casual basics designed for both fathers and sons. Being the son of a retail powerhouse means two things: 1) You know these threads are built well and 2) there's a strong family story woven into the fabric.
Alex Mill sticks to the classics, including chambray and gingham button-ups, oxford sport shirts, military-inspired lightweight jackets, crewneck sweatshirts, and Japanese cotton jeans. For the boys, there are dark blue chinos and terry hoodies.
Consider the term "dad jeans" officially extinct.
