About Alex Maine
Alex Maine is a brand designed by the American people, constructed by the American people, and sold by the American people—100% American. The brand prides itself on having fun while creating unique, upscale apparel, using the finest American craftsmanship and the most comfortable fabrics. All with a charity element, always giving back to the America people. The Alex Maine logo consists of two parts: the flag and the name. The flag is facing west, backwards from normal, to reflect how the American troops wear it on their sleeve in battle. The word Alex Maine is written in Georgia font. This font was selected because it was developed for the New York Times as an American answer to Times and Times New Roman, which are used by England’s The Times. Both the flag and font were conceived to capture the essence of America in Alex Maine. Visit the company online at www.alexmaine.us.
