Despite the name, the Everlane Italian Dress Shirt doesn’t quite carry the same cache or the same price tag as shirts fashioned by Milan’s finest tailors. That’s because they make it over in Asia, much like every other item of affordably-priced clothing you have hanging in your closet. Its actual origin notwithstanding, the shirt pairs a beautifully-tailored look with actual Italian-woven fabrics, so you get a legitimately sharp-looking work shirt that costs way less than its appearance might suggest.
Sporting a slim fit, it’s designed to wear close to the body, so you can show off the results of all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym. Of course, it will play nice under a coat or blazer, too, so you can cover up a bit if you’ve actually been putting in more hours at happy hour than the weights room like you make it appear on Facebook. Yeah, we tend to have better lives on Facebook, too, so no judgments.
The Everlane Italian Dress Shirt combines the slim, tailored fit with a structured cuff, structured collar, Japanese shell buttons, and Japanese collar stays. It’s made from a 100-percent cotton fabric that’s made and treated in Italy, with a mercerized finish that gives it a visibly soft and elegant look. The same fabric also boasts a richer color, higher durability, and better resistance to seam slippage compared to conventional fabrics, making for a genuinely premium formal menswear material.
Three colors of the Everlane Italian Dress Shirt are available (white, black, and gray), each one priced at a wallet-friendly $78.
