Everlane Heavyweight Pocket T

Life in the the Everlane means wearing clothes that aren't unnecessarily over priced due to brand reputation. This heavyweight pocket T costs Everlane about 12 dollars to make, and they sell it for $28, which is a pretty small mark up compared to their competitors. This pocket T is the perfect gateway T for the impending spring transition. It's made with a heavier cotton, that is a little rougher meaning it's a bit warmer and will last longer, softening with increased wear. The heavyweight T idea isn't new to Everlane, but the pocket is, which we whole heartedly endorse as we empathize and stand with the puffy nipple population to which pocket T's provide some relief.
