This one may not fall into the "local" brands category, but with its e-commerce platform, streamlined production processes, and beautiful clothing at affordable prices, we'll let that slip. Everlane is quickly becoming one of our favorite and most sought after brand for high-quality and stylish basics. Based in New York and San Francisco, Everlane prides itself on finding the best factories all over the world that produce designer clothing, eliminating the middle man, and passing those savings onto the customer. For every item they feature, they tell a story: the factory it hails from, the price of materials, labor, and transport, and what their mark-up is in relation to traditional designers. A sweater that costs $40 might normally retail for $250, but is only $88 at Everlane. With great products, fantastic prices, and a rare breed of transparency, we've found our new favorite e-commerce destination.
