A custom menswear store called Alton Lane is opening a showroom later this year in Atherton Mill in South End.

The store will take up approximately 1,800 square feet of space in the historic mill building directly across from the Edens offices, said Lyle Darnall, managing director of the Columbia-based developer that owns the mill.

Construction is expected to begin soon on the store, and it should open sometime in late fall of this year, Darnall added.

Alton Lane offers custom-tailored suits, tuxedos, shirts, blazers, trousers, overcoats and accessories. Its other showrooms are in New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta and Richmond, Va.

“It is a custom men’s clothing store that we think fits really well in the Charlotte market. We’re very excited about that add,” Darnall said.

Edens has been gradually adding to the list of fashion retailers at Atherton Mill. Anthropologie opened a store there late last summer, for example, and Free People is opening its first standalone Charlotte store in the mill later this year.
