Alex Badia is Men's Fashion Editor for WWD and Fashion Director for M Magazine.
From its origins in New York in 2002, rag & bone has become an internationally renowned American fashion label run by British-born Managing Partners Marcus Wainwright and David Neville.
In a quest to create the perfect pair of rigid men’s jeans, Marcus Wainwright had a breakthrough moment when he discovered a factory in Kentucky whose talented workforce had for decades specialized in manufacturing American work wear. Authenticity, craftsmanship, and quality resonated, informing rag & bone’s philosophy.
David Neville subsequently joined Mr. Wainwright to run the label. Friends since boarding school neither had any formal fashion training.
