Anyone who has even the slightest interest in fashion knows that Alexander Wang is the go-to guy for cool, sleek, urban clothing  -- a hit with his coterie "it" girls. Every lass living below 14th Street waits with baited-breath to see what slutty-sporty creations stride down his runway. With a business is growing at an exponetial rate -- thanks in part to accessories and his lower-priced basics line T by Alexander Wang -- its only natural to expand into menswear.
