Now that spring is finally here, it's time to start updating our closets. One of my favorite new stores is Alter in Greenpoint, which has both men's and ladies clothing and accessories. The two owners,Tommy and Roy, are the darlings behind the label "This Old Thing?", which is one of a kind reconstructed vintage wear, (not like that crap you find at Urban Outfitters) which is availiably exclusively at Alter. They also stock tons of other labels, from kitchen orange, kill city, cheap monday, half life, hyden yoo, maxx & unicorn etc...

dress by This Old Thing?

This is the sexy Kill City dress I bought the last time i was there.

The armholes are zippers that go down to the waist!

Everytime I go there I feel like i'm visiting a friend's house, (a friend with the most amazing closet ever). The staff is so friendly and helpful, but not in a " i-work-on-commission-kind of way". They get new stock in constantly, and rarely reorder items, so if you see something you like you better buy it because it wont be there the next time!
