I’ve included more information about this change at the bottom of this post.

The Unstainable Charles

The Charles will give you a ‘French-girl cool’ look for spring. This lovely French Bleu Crepe de Chine cap-sleeved blouse has an elegant open tie collar for a minimalist, yet classic detail and uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. The Charles is a great day-to-night option whether you are taking a stroll through your neighborhood park or hosting a fab dinner party!

The Unstainable Laurent

If you are looking for the perfect ‘weekend in Paris’ style, then the Laurent is the blouse for you! This charming cream-and-blue striped Crepe de Chine blouse has two hidden snaps at the bust for extra coverage and uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. The Laurent will look amazing paired with your favorite pencil skirt or light wash ‘boyfriend’ jeans this season.

The Unstainable Davin

The Davin is a polished white Crepe de Chine blouse. It has delicate, asymmetrical knife pleats and a double-layer of fabric throughout to provide 100% opacity. The Davin also uses our Unstainable® fabric technology to repel all water- and oil-based stains. This blouse is perfect for layering underneath a blazer for work or pairing with your favorite trousers or A-line skirt for an exquisite, yet effortless look.

Or, select from The Forever Collection!

Our Forever Collection includes the White, a classic Crepe de Chine button down with a covered placket in the front and single reverse gather in the back for subtle sophistication, the Parker, a casual, collarless Crepe de Chine popover blouse with convertible sleeves and an adorable pocket, the Arden, an incredibly soft Crepe de Chine sleeveless button down that is short in the front and long in the back, and the Liz Lemon, a relaxed tee made of super-soft luxury lightweight modal with a hint of stretch for a perfect feminine look for formal and casual attire!

As promised, more details about the price increase:

With this price increase, we hope to be able to return to the beautiful designs we launched with five years ago. At the price of $20 – $30 per shirt, we simply can no longer afford to make the high-end blouses and sweaters you love. Costs have increased significantly since we started the business in 2011: the cost of cotton has increased, the cost of paper has increased, but mostly, the cost of labor has increased.

The kind of designs we love to make with intricate paneling, beautiful draping and layering, and complicated asymmetric patterns, require professional seamstresses with experience and skill. Simply put, these professionals are not cheap. 

Beyond this, we are committed to ethical labor practices and paying a fair wage. With this price increase, we will be able to continue to provide our seamstresses with a living wage and return to the classic, high-end blouses, sweaters, cardigans, and long-sleeve tops you love.

Additionally, and even more exciting, we will now be able to offer almost every style with our Unstainable® technology. Every style that uses our signature cotton/modal knit, Crepe de Chine, and Ponte de Roma knit will be treated with our Unstainable® technology. We are working to develop other fabrics with this technology as well. After the success of our Unstainable® Shirt and Workwear Kickstarter campaigns, we knew we had a hit on our hands – and we have been working for almost a year behind the scenes to adapt our supply chain to combine these two businesses together.

We are also announcing a few more exciting new changes: two new sizes (Women’s 16 & 18) and Sweat-Proof™ & Odor-Free technology in all designs with a knit lining.

I feel that even at the price of $40 – $60 per shirt, the additional value matches the increased price. I am committed to Elizabeth & Clarke’s mission of providing women with beautiful, functional, and work-appropriate clothing while providing its makers with a living wage. I hope that you agree.
