Michael Williams      

Founder and Editor of the men's style website A Continuous Lean (ACL)

Michael Williams is Founder and Editor of the men's style website A Continuous Lean (ACL), an online collection of clothing, design, inspiration, and style. The website was launched in late 2007 in an effort to fill what appeared to be a void of menswear editorial online. Over the past four years, ACL has focused on creating quality content that centers on a masculine aesthetic. Additionally, the site has created several product collaborations with brands like Steven Alan, Tellason, GANT Rugger, London Undercover, and Cole Haan. These special products have been offered exclusively through the ACL online shop. In 2010, ACL partnered with Club Monaco to help evolve menswear at the brand by creating a new assortment of third party products, as well as helping with a special "made in the U.S.A" collection under the Club Monaco label. As someone long obsessed with provenance, Mr. Williams has made it his personal mission to champion domestic manufacturing, and in 2008 created "The American List," a resource of fashionable clothing all made in the United States. As a native son of Cleveland, Mr. Williams takes pride in highlighting craft and quality in its various forms. Currently, Mr. Williams lives in New York City and works on the factory floor at Paul + Williams.
