Best Clothes for Under $100 (2011)


We're talking about Alter in Greenpoint. Owners Tommy Coles and Roy Caires's well-edited selection features cool, trendy styles for the fashion-conscious but budget-cautious customer. You'll be thrilled at what can be found for less than $100. For her, a soft little black dress by LnA for $70, a lightweight jumper with a cute ruffle neckline by Double Zero for $55, and a safari shoulder bag by Alternative Apparel for $98. For him (at the men's shop directly across the street), plaid shirts by Commune for $44, crewneck sweaters by Life After Denim for $45, and soft calf-skin wallets by the Brooklyn-based Maxx & Unicorn for $85. They also keep plenty of inexpensive Cheap Monday denim on hand and a variety of sunglasses for $20. Of course, not everything in the store is under $100. (This is still New York, after all.) But for a great deal on something you'll want to wear every day, Alter can't be beat.
