Time to get dressed.

Spring has started to settle in here in New York. The sun is out, flowers and trees are starting to bloom and our favorite local bars have their outdoor seating filled to capacity already. The good times in Greenpoint only get better with nice weather. Its going to be a great spring!
Alter's vibe for this season is a mix of dressed up but yet casual look for the bloke's. Spring should not mean grubby tees and sandals it means a smarter, clean and put together wardrobe. It's a whole new season, a new beginning so start on the right foot.
