Daniel Waldron/Alexander Nash

Daniel Waldron is a Galway-born inter-dealer broker and initial investor in and co-founder of the bespoke tailoring label Alexander Nash, based in New York. The company, founded in 2011 by Waldron and tailor Alex Summer, now has over 175 clients and is worn by the New York Knicks, Instagram giant Iman Shumpert, model Tyson Beckford, and Irish golfer Rory McIlroy.

Waldron, whose background is in event management and finance, was one of Summer’s first clients (the two met at the Marquee nightclub in New York where Summer was working security) and soon after they opened the first studio in Chelsea. The company now employs five people, including three full-time tailors. And, while suits will cost at minimum about $3,500, all the materials are from New York fabric stores, while the wools come from Italy, England, or Australia.
