I've worn both sizes of my French Terry's and even though I thought the small in the wine color way was slightly large after wearing it for an hour I realized it fits perfect. They are just slightly relaxed fit, IMO perfect for a sweat shirt. 

On a side note if it was such a disaster why haven't they been restocked with returned sweatshirts? Almost everyone kept them.

That's a very good point actually. I do have high hopes for this cashmere though. Just hoping that it's actually dense and not see through =\

Well, since there's a 90 day return policy, we can't rule out laziness/indecision just yet :-)

For example, I'll probably be returning my black terry but haven't gotten around to it

Fair enough but the black terry wasn't the one sold out in a few hours nor the one with "sizing issues". I have a blue and wine color terry and really like them both (in two different sizes). 

What I am returning is a bunch of t-shirts that are to small with the size switch up & I really do not like the new white shirts at all. 

Anyways, why are you returning the blk terry?

Club Monaco about Target quality (except for 3rd party stuff). Cashmere that doesn't suck is expensive, even if it's not Loro Piana.

Anyone know the price of the OCBD's?

While this already has been discussed here, I emailed everlane about some other things and just mentioned the >$100 for the cashmere sweaters very briefly.  Just got a response from them and (though they didnt talk about what I was actually emailing them about) they gave this as a reasoning for the higher price:

 

Thanks for your note, and I'm happy to explain more about what our team considered when deciding to break $100.

Everlane started with a commitment to the highest-quality and a mission to bring customers luxurious items at truly disruptive prices, leveraging our online-only model with no middlemen.

When we looked into categories such as cashmere, the $100 price point became a barrier to achieving that high standard of quality. Our team felt it was important to bring customers the finest cashmere, even if that means breaking $100.

Our design team tested several grades of cashmere and decided to go with a finer cashmere to maintain our commitment to quality. I just saw a sample in the office and am really looking forward to buying mine (the charcoal is really fantastic). Similar sweaters I have are well over 3x ours.

As we turn one year old, we've been reflecting on the past year and are very grateful for the support our customers have given us. We are excited to move forward to launch even more luxurious products at truly price disruptive categories.

I'm here if you have any questions. Please let me know.

 

 

 

So yeah, nothing ground breaking, but figured I would share with all of you.

Hey Nan any chance for an early SF release?
post #2381 of 3342
It's actually pretty cool everlane's willing to go beyond their $100 mark if it means expanding into types of products they previously couldn't release (i could easily see them venturing into tailored clothing, for example). Too bad the company and I mostly disagree on how clothes should fit the male body rolleyes.gif. Otherwise I'd be all over this stuff

I think this is the right move- better to break this artificial price barrier and deliver a quality good. We all know that shitty cashmere is not worth it and it's harmful in the long run.

I think Ill wait a while and see how measurements and stuff goes before I order.

The Everlane home page this morning said something like, "we're breaking the $100 mark to bring you the finest cashmere..." I'm not seeing that screen anymore, though.

Haha I was definitely being snarky, but I thought he just pulling a random statement out of his ass, since he didn't reference the website - I checked their Facebook posts (where they pretty much say all their updates) before posting and hadn't seen anything about breaking the $100 mark at the time. I especially thought it was random because someone who gave a review of the upcoming fall products a couple months ago explicitly mentioned a price of $100 for the sweaters. So yeah, I ended up being wrong but that doesn't change the fact that the original post had no reference for it's claim. My apologies to tgaith77, still.

 

I guess it's a little different if they committed to make a product first and then realized they'd have to go over $100, but still, you can extend that to anything then. "We want to make product X but we don't want to sacrifice on quality so it's going to be price Y" kinda blows open what they seemingly originally intended to offer. I pay more than $100 pretty regularly so I don't mind, it just seems like a definitely shift in goals.

 

Also, the main website says they've sold 71 thousand shirts. Daaamn.

Again not in my experience, but then again I don't have anything from Target, but I feel that my Club Monaco items are definitely a step above Uniqlo.
