Everlane knows exactly how to make everyday basics that everybody wants. Even though their products are plain and simple, thousands of eager customers line up for Everlane’s latest releases. Last week was no different, when they launched their $50 work pant – and thank goodness they did. Over 12,000 women were on the waiting list. But what’s the big deal with these business-appropriate slacks?
Everlane’s work pants are made with two-way stretch cotton for a clean look that’s also comfortable. The high-waist flatters every figure, and the skinny style tapers just above the ankle making it a stylish work pant for every season.
To make up for this plain-Jane pant, Everlane gives it modern edge with subtle details, like the side zipper to keep the waist clean and minimal. The back seam of the leg adds both length and interest. And there’s no dry-cleaning required, making the pants a convenient choice for busy working women.
But perhaps what makes these pants a winning item is that they’re ethically made in Jiangmen, China, at a small textile factory where ethical standards are a must. Their high retention records suggest that their 500 employees are treated well and with respect. They also employ the perfect craftsmen (and women!) to make this new work pant since it requires top-notch tailoring and cutting.
Everlane’s transparent pricing shows you exactly how much one pair of pants costs, from materials to transport, so you know you’re getting high quality without the exorbitant markups typical to the fashion industry.
