They say the devil is in the details and I'm inclined to agree, provided that the devil we're discussing is the reason to buy a 188 USD denim shirt from Deluxe. This garment is all elegant curves: the western yoke, the rounded hem, the club collar. Its simplicity belies the sheer amount of work it takes to produce a piece like this. People worked hard on this shirt and if you want to wear it, you have to pay them a fair amount of money for the privilege. Something to ponder while you read this Quartz article about how a bunch of our mass-produced clothing is made not by factory workers, but by "homeworkers", which basically means poor women (and sometimes children) paid virtually nothing to labor in their own homes. I hate to be the bearer of bad and extremely obvious news, but cheap clothing is cheap for a reason.
