 So 6 months later... and the everlane t-shirts are my favorite now :-). Funny how time changes opinions. The shirts  seem to get better with further washings. The stretchiness turns out to be a feature - they shrink in the wash, then mold after wearing, while remaining nice and soft. The neckline still scrunches up, but it's not a big deal to me anymore. My j.crews look worn out after 6 months, yet the everlanes still look good. I've also been messing around with uniqlo's...
You can still get the old style model if you "design your own" jack purcell on the converse website. It costs about $20 more and there are no returns (only exchanges). Also it takes a couple of weeks.
RLH soles are extremely comfortable - lots of cushioning. But I think the camp / deck soles look better for summer and shorts.
  You'll probably get many different opinions on this. But my unlined ranger mocs did not stretch much at all. I'm glad I did not size down or they would be too tight.
I kopped the slim oxford in both M and L to compare. I'm 175/6' and the medium fits pretty much perfectly. The only thing is the shoulders are about half an inch narrow for me, but it's not too noticeable. Fabric is really good for the price, not as thick as more expensive overdyes, but still quite substantial. The navy is killer. I just placed my order for the khaki and olive.
I finally took advantage of the Everlane free shipping and ordered 3 of the crew tees. Out of the box the fabric feels very nice, nicer than J.Crew slim fit tees (if I could find a better tee I would buy it elsewhere, esp. something U.S. made). At first wearing I did not like the fit - chest is too tight compared to the waist, as others have pointed out. However the fabric is super stretchy and the chest loosened up nicely after a few wears. But that stretchiness has its...
Thought I'd give an update on my ranger mocs, for anyone still thinking about sizing. I got 10Ds based on the sizing chart, which felt way too small. I got them stretched by Rancourt, but it didn't help much. I've worn them a few times, hoping for some stretch, and still too small. So I did the somewhat questionable thing and ordered two pairs of BB ranger mocs in 10.5 and 11D to compare and then return. So the 11D's fit me pretty much perfectly, quite snug out of the...
Dark olive CXL with black lactea hevea soles. They look dark brown in everything but direct sunlight where they are noticeably olive.       I really like the soles. They're very comfortable and have good traction.
  I did get them stretched already by rancourt, I forgot to mention that. It made a slight improvement - probably the equivalent of increasing the width by a quarter/half size. But still feels too small. You may be right. I was thinking the same when I ordered them sized down, esp. as unlined cxl. I may give them a few more wears and see how it goes. Thanks for the feedback!
I was taking a look at the sizing chart again and wonder if I'm doing it wrong. It looks like this     -------  9  ----   ------- (size 10.5?) 10 ---- (size 10?)   -------   I assume that the line that points to '10'  is size 10, just like on a brannock. But maybe that is actually a 10.5, and the 10 is for the line below it.
