Last month, I ordered some items from a new-ish retailer called Everlane. The company’s ethos is “radical transparency,” the idea that a retailer should disclose to consumers exactly which factories produce their clothes, and what the company’s costs and profits are. While I liked their silk blouses, I loved (LOVED!) their v-neck t-shirts.
These t-shirts are the perfect mix of sleek and slouchy. They fit close enough to the body that you’re not wearing a shapeless box, but they give you that effortlessly cool drape (and some concealment if you need it). The v-neck is low enough so that you get a subtle hint of cleavage. And the sleeves are the perfect length.
Also, if you’ve struggled to find cotton tees that weren’t see through, this might be the one for you. It’s not as heavy as some brands, but the opacity is certainly on the thicker side of the line. The fabric provides some lightness without being too thin or indiscrete. I also think the quality is at least three times better than J.Crew.
I liked the v-neck tee so much that I ordered two more in white, one in fog (a pale grey) and another in navy. The retailer also sells their t-shirts in a slouchier u-neck shape, if you like a more relaxed look. (I wish they made a basic crewneck.)
I adore these t-shirts. The price is fantastic. The quality is very good. If you have been looking for the perfect white t-shirt, this could very well be the one.
