Fall is my favourite time of the year for fashion. I know many of you style mavens would agree! It’s the perfect time of the year for cosy sweaters, layers and boots but I will say, I just love wearing my basic t-shirt all year ’round. Of course, you can’t wear a cotton t-shirt to every function because it’s really only reserved for brunches, casual dinners and everyday wear but what if you found a t-shirt that elevates the classic style and is acceptable for dressier occasions? You buy it and you wear it to everything!
I recently discovered a cashmere t-shirt by Everlane. That’s right, cashmere. We’re going fancy here, guys! The main reason that I chose this shirt over another cotton t-shirt is that it’s made with 100% Grade-A Mongolian Cashmere. To me, this shirt is a classic piece that will live in my wardrobe for years to come. When and if I choose to pass it on, its grade will allow for limiting pilling unlike other grades of cashmere. This shirt is truly purchased for longevity and will retain its shape and feel. If you’re not familiar with Everlane, they are a company who believes in making a difference through exceptional quality and ethical factories. In fact, when shopping online, you can see the factory that your items come from.
Everlane partners with ethical factories around the world while sourcing fine materials to create items that are designed to last. These factories are the ones that produce the majority of designer labels. They visit them often and ensure they follow a compliance audit for fair wages, reasonable hours and environmental impact.
One of my absolute favourite things about Everlane is their “radical transparency.” They believe that customers have a right to know how much their clothes cost to make so they reveal everything from materials to labour to transportation. Below is the transparency for the Cashmere Tee. If you don’t believe me, check it out yourself! Now is a better time than ever because Everlane has updated their site experience for Australia, UK and Canada! Now, all items will reflect the dollar amount in your own currency which is important when checking in on the transparent pricing. All countries will also have access to Easy Returns and if this is your first order, you’ll get free shipping!
Good luck choosing just one item. I also snagged the Texture Cotton Cable and Day Glove flats. Anything I’ve owned from Everlane has lasted years and when I’ve found something second-hand, it’s still in great condition. Discover more on your own and happy learning/shopping!
