"Matt Bomer (and his WHITE COLLAR character, Neal Caffrey) is the personification of what we strive to achieve at Alton Lane: a well-rounded, well-dressed man about town. We couldn't have imagined a better ambassador to work with nor better partners than USA and Gilt," said Alton Lane's C. Peyton Jenkins, Vice President of Customer Experience.
