If you’re on the constant hunt for dress shirts that don’t gape open, Betabrand has this one, which they’re also calling the world’s comfiest button-down. It’s interesting because it’s a fake button front with two functional buttons that make the shirt easy to put on and take off. It’s 100% cotton and machine washable, and it just looks like it’s going to be comfortable and easy to wear and will look nice tucked in. It’s $78 — only available in pink at the moment, but many of the 150+ comments on the page are asking for additional colors, so stay tuned. It comes in XS-XXL, but not all sizes are in stock — you can sign up to be emailed when they’re available again. World’s Comfiest Button-Down
PS 1: Banana Republic Factory just went on sale at flash sample sale site Zulily. Lots of blazers, blouses, pants, dresses, accessories and more, with the vast majority priced between $29-$55. Here’s my referral link if you need an invite to the site.
PS 2: Thanks so much to the reader who recommended the Carlisle outlet in our post on NYC shopping for workwear — I was in the neighborhood yesterday and checked it out and was excited to see the crazy good sale prices. (Example: $595 blazer marked on sale to $275, then take 80% off of that price. I got a $375 blazer for $32.) Lots of stuff that wasn’t quite my cup of tea, but lots of good basics for trousers, skirts, dresses, coats, and accessories at crazy prices.
