"Thanks!" to Marietta who shared the email Madewell sent yesterday.
The email features the Denim Engineer Boyshirt ($78) which is described as "our latest take on traditional workshirt– we think it's right on track".
Once again, I am reminded that I am not Madewell's target consumer. I just do not get how this workshirt costs so much. Yes, it's pretty in its simplicity. However, there is no fitted-tailoring, no extra-special fabric that's flown in from some world-renown mill located in a far-away land inhabited by unicorns, to justify the price tag.
The email also reminds us that Madewell is offering an additional 25% off their "end-of-the-season" sale at local brick & mortar (B&M) stores. This offer expires Monday, 1/18/10.
What are your thoughts on the Denim Engineer Boyshirt? Do you like or dislike the style of the shirt? :)
