The Brand

The Brand

It all started in East London, United Kingdom. The Albert 1941 brand was conceived by Gabriel Akinosho in 2008.

In 2009, the then 23 year old Gabriel embarked on an 8 year journey around the world educating himself and borrowing influences from every continent that would ultimately form the body of the Albert 1941 brand. In 2016 the Albert brand was officially formed.

The vision for Albert 1941 was to create a hub for menswear going against fashion and championing classic style. An Albert creation is fashion forward meaning we are never led by fashion. When you purchase an item from us we want your item to withstand the test of time and outlast trend.

From handmade tuxedos to handmade shoes, Albert 1941 pieces are all well thought out and made with precision. We do not compromise on quality as we believe any purchase from us should always be an investment.

Every Albert piece holds a unique story within it. We do not believe clothes can change anybody but we believe how you feel in our clothing can change everything.
