Labels to Love: Brass Clothing

Overview

Brass Clothing recently made it’s way on to my radar and, at first glance, I’m impressed.  This Boston based company was founded in 2014.  Most noteworthy and similar to another Natty Gal fave, Everlane, the company provides high quality basics without a big markup.

Furthermore, the owners created Brass Clothing to help customers create chic, effortless capsule wardrobes of a small number of mix and match pieces. Their product promise focuses on five principles: Beauty, Quality, Versatility, Ease and Purpose.  Standard prices range from $25 – $128 and all products get quite good reviews.  Finally, be sure to check out the real model pictures and detailed fit information.

While I have yet to purchase from Brass Clothing, I plan to order the tank maxi for an upcoming winter trip.  Will write a follow-up when it arrives!

Labels to Love: Everlane

This San Francisco based company is a minimalist’s dream!  Founded in 2010, Natty Gal got turned on to them about two years ago.  Using a business model of “radical transparency”, Everlane sources the best factories across the world – often the same ones producing designer labels.  They show their customers true, detailed costs for each item including the Everlane and traditional retail markups. Products are of a consistent, high-end quality at a great price.

My first personal purchase was a long-sleeve silk blouse ($78) – that I wear for both work and on the weekends.  For summer I’ll be stocking up on the sleeveless option ($65).
 
The Modern Ankle Boot - Everlane The Modern Loafer - Everlane The Knot Sandal - Everlane
 
Favorite boots and shoes (all crafted in Italy) include the versatile ankle boot, the modern loafer and the knot sandal.  Prices range from $120-$195.

Last but not least, The Petra Market Tote ($365)- is a favorite of fashion bloggers. Available in 8 colors – it’s roomy, soft and ages well.
