Profile

The weekly changing selection is funky and versatile: tunics with geometric seams from Uzi, shirtdresses by Kowtow, and slouchy jersey tanks from Rojas. Cheap Monday jeans provide skinny-denim staples, stacked on a central table beside screen-printed tees by the store’s own in-house line. Back wooden shelves bear affordable accessories, like Baggu leather clutches, Intentionally Blank mule-style shoes, and sterling-silver jewelry by Sophy. Totes, slouchy jackets, and shoulder bags cross over into both Alter locations, as does the store’s signature upside-down hanger logo, which co-owners Tommy Cole and Roy Caires turned into oxidized-silver pendants.
