Everlane is an online apparel retailer, founded by CEO Michael Preysman in 2010. His goal is to keep customers informed through the philosophy of "radical transparency." This means Everlane openly shares the profile of the factories they use. Cutting the middle man, they are able to reduce excessive item mark-up. And with transparent pricing, a customer can basically see how much it cost to make a t-shirt or pair of shoes. They even provide different price points on sale items, allowing the customers to choose how much they want to pay. For us who like to feel and touch the items before we commit, you can visit Everlan'es physical stores in New York and San Francisco.
