Aksel Group offers direct-to-customer apparel and accessories for men, and donates a school uniform to a child in need for every shirt sold.

Detailed Description


Our Mission: Aksel is a brand with a very special mission: promote freedom while building one of the best fashion company. We make elegant shirts for today's sophisticated men, and for every shirt we sell, we give a school uniform to a child in need.

About Our Shirts: We have developed an innovative double couture on the ribs that truly molds to the shape of a man's body, something that nobody has done before. Our collars are extra high to stand up no matter what, eliminating the floppy collars that sink under your jacket. Additionally, the linings, buttons, colors and beautiful fabrics we use ensure a consistent outcome: make you look great, enhance your shape and get you compliments.

Our Clothing = Freedom Program: Everyday, millions of kids in developing countries don't go to school because they can't afford the cost of the uniforms required for it. That's why for every shirt we sell, a school uniform is made locally and distributed to a child in need.

Aksel also offers custom suits at its Soho location, exclusively using British fabrics from Holland & Sherry. Allow 5-6 weeks for the suit to be ready.

We are available both online, on and in our flagship Soho store in New York: 311 West Broadway, New York, 10013
