Born and raised in Massachusetts and stemming from an entrepreneurial family, joining the start up known as Alton Lane in 2012 was an easy decision for Chris Cuozzo. The vision behind Alton Lane is to revolutionize the way men shop. Through an appointment only model, an exceptional customer experience, new school technology, and extreme value; Alton Lane has carved out quite the nice for themselves at 91 Newbury Street. Exposed brick, leather couches, unique wall decor, a custom built mahogany bar, the world's finest fabrics, a 3D body scanner, and an experienced staff are just a few of the reasons why Alton Lane is quickly making a name for themselves in the rapidly growing menswear industry.
At the formative age of 9 years old, saving up his weekly allowance, Chris began putting labels such as Z. Cavaricci and Skidz on layaway at the Burlington Mall. Chris credits his family with teaching him to be a scrappy, hard-working individual and still uses those skills on a daily basis.
In 2009, Cuozzo decided to turn his love for fashion into a career and launched his own brand known as Dressed By Christopher Cuozzo, which focused on semi-custom casual and dress shirts, as well as soft goods for men, women, and children. He still owns and operates Dressed but has shifted the focus to the unique offering known as Closet Rehab.
