Alex Colman got his start in the fashion industry as a teenage stock boy in 1928, working at L. Bamberger & Co. After attending art classes, he worked as a buyer first at Strawbridge & Clothier, and then at the May Company. In 1947, Colman’s wife, Sade Colman, started a men’s pajama manufacturing business, but it was not successful, and she soon switched production to women’s blouses.

In 1949, Colman joined his wife in her business, and “Alex Colman California” was born. They were producers of quality sportswear, co-ordinates, and casual dresses in the California style. For many years, the head designer at Alex Colman was Sade’s sister, Blanche Lefton.
