Blank Label -- the Boston-based website that helps men create custom shirts -- is branching out to help gals. It's set up a Kickstarter campaign and is giving a custom dress shirt to the first 500 people to pledge $69 or more (assuming the campaign meets its funding goal; if not, no one will be charged, and no shirts given out). The shirts will retail at up to $90. Pledge at least $89 and get a shirt made with one of the company's premium imported fabrics, if the campaign reaches its goal. (These will retail at up to $145.) The campaign ends June 29th.
