Looking for the perfect work sheath? If you have your heart set on M.M. LaFleur’s wildly popular “Tory 2.0,” be prepared to wait. And wait. The $235 “all-season, wear everywhere” Little Black Dress has a waiting list 947 people deep, reports Business Insider. Ethically made in New York City, the dress comprises an Osaka, Japan–sourced crêpe that the company describes as highly breathable and wrinkle-resistant. It also boasts a “satiny interior,” to keep its wearer cool all year round, as well as a secure faux-wrap design that guards against wardrobe malfunctions.

CULT FAVORITE

M.M. LaFleur, which markets directly to the consumer through a mail-order “try it before you buy it” model, calls the demand for the Tory 2.0 “off the charts.” (And, as the 2.0 in its name implies, this is the Tory’s second go-around. Its first iteration has completely sold out.)

Anyone who orders the dress now can expect a delivery next January—if not later. Although we’d prefer an eco-friendlier textile—the Tory 2.0 is made from 82 percent triacetate and 18 percent polyester—one thing’s for sure: Classic trumps trendy every time.
