If you find me wearing a tee shirt, there is a 99% chance it is an Everlane tee. In fact, if it is a v-neck tee shirt, it is 100% an Everlane tee. I fell in love with Everlane a while back and have since become an Everlane snob, ONLY purchasing Everlane tees. It just made sense. They fit extremely well, wash and wear even better and are only $15. Compared to the $65+ I was spending on my tees prior that I never really loved, this snobbery was an easy decision. My two favorites are the Classic v-neck and Ryan tees and tanks. Believe me, you will love them too.
Since falling in love with their tees, my eyes have begun wandering to the other products they carry. Their bags, shoes, and leather goods have the look of incredible craftsmanship, with simple and chic designs but carrying a price tag that makes my bank account happy. As they launch new products I continue to be impressed. And then they launched the “Modern Loafer” and I just about died. If there is anything that will absolutely be added to my closet this Fall, it is these. I will openly state that these are the best looking loafers I have ever seen and would work in EVERY. SINGLE. closet for Fall.
Arriving in black, burgundy (my favorite) and olive, Everlane has created the perfect classic shoe for just about anything. I imagine them with cut offs (yes, I know I image everything with cut offs…) and dresses right now while the weather is stuck in Summer but looking amazingly chic with an oversized sweater and skinny jeans when the temperatures drop. And did I mention that these beauties carry a $165 price tag? Crazy good, I know.
If you are at all curious as to how Everlane can charge such lower prices compared to other retailers for high quality products, here is their secret. They call it “Transparent Pricing”. On their site you will see their price along with the traditional retail price for each item. Here is the Modern Loafer:
So what does that mean? When clicking on the traditional retail, you will see this…
They are very clear on what it costs for them to make the shoe and very open about their markup. After spending years in retail, I find it extremely refreshing that they are so transparent with this. We all know there is a markup on the items we purchase but as you can see from this, sometimes the mark up is outrageous and Everlane is trying to stay away from that. Their tees cost only $7 to make and cost you only $15 instead of $50 to purchase. Pretty commendable don’t you think?
Moral of the story?
You should order yourself some tees and make your feet happy with some new loafers without breaking the bank.
