Everlane, a brand built on the concepts of transparency and sustainability, is one of the few that actually delivers. Its collection of high-quality men’s basics makes it easy for dads to look put-together — without blowing a mortgage payment on a pair of pants. The clothes all go together, so you can build a wardrobe over time without having to put too much thought or effort into it. And with the holidays coming up, Everlane doesn’t disappoint with a pretty epic Black Friday sale. A huge selection of items is 20-40 percent off.
The brand also aims to be a good corporate citizen, breaking down the cost of materials, labor, transportation, and duties for each product, providing details on the origins of each piece, and donating profits toward good causes. (One year, its factory workers in Vietnam got helmets to make their moped commutes safer.) None of that would matter if the clothes sucked. They do not. Here are a dozen great pieces that are worth your money.
Everlane's classic chinos in short form, these aren't (just) for lounging around. Made with sweat-wicking fabric that's 94 percent cotton and 6 percent elastane, they have some stretch and dry quickly, meaning they're ready for action but look refined.
100 percent linen, so it's built for summer, Everlane's standard-fit short-sleeve comes in an array of patterns and shades.
These classic T-shirts come in 13 colors, but the fit is what matters here: Not too loose or tight, they're just right. So is the price, so stock up for summer.
Another warm-weather or layering staple, this V-neck shirt is made from mid-weight cotton that gets softer the more you wash and wear it
This cool, understated bomber will elevate any look. Bonus: it's water-resistant and machine-washable
Somewhere between jeans and work pants lie these cotton chinos, which will become your go-to when you want to be comfortable but look polished.
This minimal, fresh take on a classic cap is lightweight and made from breathable cotton poplin.
Everlane's cashmere sweaters are made with 60 percent recycled cashmere and 40 percent wool. They have raglan sleeves and a wide ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem; whenever they go on sale, stock up.
These go-with-everything sneakers are as classic as they are cool. They come in seven different color combinations, are made of high-quality leather, and have a sole that's almost entirely free of virgin plastic.
Dress shirts are a pain in the ass. Not this one. It won't stretch, wrinkle, or leave you with those lovely underarm stains. It's made of breathable cotton, but has a touch of elastane for the ideal slim fit.
Step aside, ratty old sweatshirt from college. This wool hoodie manages to look as cozy as it does sleek: It's loungewear, taken up a notch.
They're called performance jeans for a reason: They last and last. They don't fade. And they have just enough stretch that they're comfortable while still being on point in terms of style. The fit is slim through the hip and thigh, with a somewhat tapered leg.
