Get excited. Everlane, my fav online source for spot-on, affordable basics (both men and women) has just added a mini collection, with sizes from 2T-5T. If you don’t know Everlane, they have a pretty progressive business model. They describe it with the phrase, “radical transparency.” Basically, Everlane works hard to establish relationships with the factories producing their clothing, including many in-person visits. As their website states, “this hands-on approach is the most effective way to ensure a factory’s integrity.”
I really like their progressive approach to kids’ clothes, too. Their line is completely, 100%, unisex.
(on me: Everlane’s heavyweight striped tee, size small c/o)
Kudos to a company who not only sent my little guy this gorgeous, soft hoodie….but they him one in pink. HIGH. FIVE.
Next time, Everlane, Pax would like one in “stripe rainbow“. Just, you know, in case you’re taking custom orders from 5 year olds. (And Raines wants to know when you’ll extend the line with bigger sizes!)
A note on fit: In addition to Pax’s love of pink….he also insists that his shirts cannot be too long, nor can the sleeves reach all the way to his wrists. So….Pax still wears a 3T (SIGH), which is why the fit looks a bit small. Everlane also sent over a 5T which fits perfectly (in my opinion), but Pax wouldn’t cooperate. Like, AT ALL. To quote Raines, “I guess you get what you get”.
In addition to these fabulous cashmere sweaters (which wash up beautifully), Everlane also has seriously cute sweatshirts, plain tees, and….STRIPES. Yes. Here are my favs:
Everlane, thanks again for the goodies. We’re always so thrilled to work with companies working hard to do the right thing.
