The t-shirts don't feel that soft out of the box. I think Nan said something about the processes used just before packing the t-shirts affecting their handfeel on arrival. After you wash them they get much softer. I didn't believe what someone else on the forum said about that until I did it for myself, and it's been true of each of my t-shirts from them. In my experience (and from what I was told a few years back as a sales associate at J Crew), much of the softness of items from BR and J Crew is from the heavy-duty fabric softeners they use before the products go to stores. The downside is often that those wash out over time, and the items become less soft. So far in my experience, the softness of the Everlane tees seems to be a quality of the fabric, not of a chemical. If anything, it seems you need to wash out a chemical at the beginning.

 

When it comes to the weight of the fabric, I tend to think that different weights are good for different things. Everlane tees are great for hot summers, and now that it's cooler I'm layering them under button-ups or sweaters. I also have other brands of t-shirts of other weights that I use in different ways, but most of them are not as soft (after the wash). Then too, BR t-shirts have been too short for me in the past.

 

Just thought I'd add my two cents to yours. Hope it helps.

 

Hey thanks for your comments!  I always did suspect that J.Crew and BR used chemicals to make their shirts unrealy soft, but I do appreciate the shorter fit of the BR shirts.  To each his own I guess!

Just got a navy french terry in, small measurement is actually 21.5 P2P, this is pretty disappointing.

It's not that surprising they would under report the measurements by just a bit. Most people need that, not understanding that their sweatshirt measurements should be slightly more than a first layer. You should be able to shrink it by at least .5" I would guess by running it through a wash and dry cycle. Not a huge deal.

That's worse than what Renalan reported. His was supposed to be a small, not xs like that one on reddit. Funny they measure the same though.

Yeah, people are saying there might be some quality control problems between the colors too. Dunno if other people on here have anything to say about it

sweater at 21.5" is not a small

and are you saying that the other measurements are inflated as well to account for shrinkage? Feels like people are saying only the pit to pit has been inflated, doesn't make sense at all.

Trying to buy ever lane is getting harder and harder imo, their sizing consistencies that happen just from different production runs on the same product is stupid. How hard can it be to get their 3 or so products correct?

I agree 21.5" is not a small. Hell, I don't really think 20.5" should be a small but that's what the size chart says. My point was just that it's not that far off all things considered. And I wasn't suggesting it was inflated to account for shrinkage, just that he could likely fix most of the discrepancy by shrinking it.

2" around the chest is kind of a huge difference...

I was considering getting Everlane but after this disaster might have to look either for alternatives or wait a few weeks for this fit issue to be resolved. It's easy to be critical, but it's obvious something is messed up on their end.

QC problems aside, I don't get what people were expecting quality wise? Margiela? Brioni?
post #2250 of 3353

its jus the terrible QC sizing variances
