Target just recently launched their new menswear line, Goodfellow & Co., and it is very much worth your attention. I paid the store a visit over the weekend to check out this new line and try on a few items. Even though my expectations were pretty low, I was pleasantly surprised to see that some of their items were pretty solid. Here are some items I tried on…
The Button Downs
I tried on a couple button downs, and didn’t fall in love with the fit of them. I would need them tailored, which would cost more than the price of the shirt. But I would still recommend checking them out, because the look/style of them were pretty solid.
The henley is pretty much the best all around shirt you can have in your closet, and a favorite of mine. So naturally I had to try on a couple of these. I liked the style of both of the options I tried one, but one of them missed the mark on fit for me. The other was added to my shopping cart. I will absolutely be buying more henley’s from there.
The Stretch Cargo Pants
You read that correctly. I decided it was time to re-evaluate cargo pants. But not the huge baggy ones that were once popular. I’m talking the modern slim cut variety. And I can’t believe how much I liked them.
The stretch material made them very comfortable and flexible. Needless to say, they came home with me and are now a part of my wardrobe.
I didn’t spend much time with the blazer, but I did a quick try on just to get a sense of the fit. I wasn’t impressed, but I’m also a bit more picky about my blazer choices. I didn’t get the vibe that it was something that I would want to dress up with a tie. It was much more of a casual blazer, which is fine if that’s what you’re into. But it missed the mark for me.
The Long Sleeve Tee
Going into fall, long sleeve tees are essential. And the one I tried from Goodfellow & Co. was great.
While it didn’t make it to my shopping cart (yet), I can certainly recommend it. Super soft to the touch, good fit, and their color selection was very good.
Other Notable Items
While I didn’t try them on, they had some great looking sweatshirts and hoodies that were very cozy feeling. They had a great selection of tees; both v-necks and crew necks, a wide color selection, as well as stripes and patterns. Assuming the fit is good, this brand could meet all your t-shirt needs.
Manage Your Expectations Before Buying
As much as I like some of the items that I tried on and bought, I’m not expecting these items to last in the long term. If they do, then it’s a bonus, but at these price points and in mass production like Target has, it doesn’t scream long lasting quality. And that’s ok. So if/when you buy some Goodfellow & Co. items, just enjoy wearing them now and keep your expectations low on the longevity of them.
I Recommend Goodfellow & Co.
In case it isn’t obvious, I strongly recommend this brand. It helps that Target stores are very accessible stores (at least here in the US). But I was pretty impressed with the GoodFellow & Co. line. I didn’t get around to trying on any sweaters or denim, but I will most certainly be heading back there in the fall. If you can’t make it to a store, you can buy it online as well. But at these price points, I would strongly suggest trying items on before deciding to buy.
