Here at Refinery, Steven Alan is kinda our best friend. He's super chill, thoughtful, and stylish with an attitude that's as laid-back as his timeless duds. What many don't know about the NY King of Casual Cool is that he's a big deal in the Hamptons, too. With his plaid shirts, perfect cotton blazers, and a whole lot of pleated shorts, Alan's our go-to guy when it comes to dressing for a BBQ in MTK or a clam-bake on Shelter Island. So, how psyched are you that Steven is sharing his insider secrets on all the Hamps' spots—from a clandestine art gallery to a fisherman's hangout, going out East may never be the same again.
