WFH Items: My Favorite Layering Tee

I love scoop neck tees.  I owned so many of them in the ’90s.  So when they made a comeback, it was like getting a gift that I didn’t know I wanted.

This one has become my new favorite t-shirt.  And it’s only $30.

Everlane’s Pima Micro-Rib Tee is amazing.  It’s comfortable.  More opaque than most tees.  The scoop-neck is fantastic.

I bought one of these tees, and by the end of the week, I owned three.  It’s the perfect layering tee for casual clothing.

The micro-rib collection has many basic tees on offer.  Their open v-neck tee is another fabulous style.  There’s a style for every figure and season.

    Not sure if you’ve heard about the controversy at Everlane, but for me, a loyal customer who owns a ton of their jeans and shoes, it caused me to stop buying completely from them-

    Right after their customer service employees notified them that they received the necessary signatures to unionize, Everlane laid off something like 80% of them and replaced them with their retail employees.

    This following an email to customers titled “we’re all in this together” and touting their “radical transparency.”

    What a slap in the face! I had to stop buying from them, sadly.

    Didn’t everlane fire all those folks when they tried to unionize? I thought you mentioned as much and weren’t going to be patronizing them?
    I’m with the other poster — everlane lost me as a customer when they did that.
    I am happy to spend the money I make (while still employed!) at companies that actually value their workers. Recommend nadaam. They’re more expensive but their cashmere is actually better. Uniqlo has t-shirts and signed the pledge not to cancel orders. There are alternatives.

      I bought the tee before that happened, and since I get a lot of questions about non-sheer tees, I decided to share it. I didn’t take the decision lightly, I looked into the situation more after the initial news reports, and I’m not as convinced that they union busted as the original reports made it seem.

      The employees asked Everlane to “voluntarily recognize” their union, and never certified the signatures they claim to have. They also never filed anything official with NLRB. And we’re a month out from the firing, and despite a bunch of press releases from the union they wanted to join, they haven’t filed a complaint against Everlane, which seems odd. If the facts were as they were originally represented, this would be the clearest case of union busting I’ve ever seen, but no certification, nothing official filed and now no complaint, and I’m wondering if someone saw the firings coming due to Covid-19 and sent the letter asking Everlane to recognize the union voluntarily so they would get exactly this result.

      That being said, if NLRB finds Everlane did union bust, they won’t appear here anymore.

    I will no longer shop at Everlane due to poor treatment of employees as mentioned by previous commenters. Any company that engages in union busting is not one that I will support.

    If you bought these shirts beforehand, you might be able to continue enjoying them with that personal justification. But by writing this post with a link to the website, you’re suggesting that people go buy it now, and you’re literally profiting off of that patronage. Cool that you like the shirt, but when you have a microphone, your words have an impact one way or another, and you’re crossing the picket line with this post.

      As I said, I’m not convinced based on a critical review of the Union’s actions and Everlane’s defenses that they union busted. If the NLRB finds that they did, they will no longer appear here. I’m not willing to make a rush to judgment given that lack of evidence, since I rushed to judgment on something last year, and it turned out to be a lot of smoke and no fire.
