Everlane T-shirts - Page 160

post #2386 of 3324
Got the official email announcing that they will break $100 for the sweaters.

I still think it is kind of a cop-out. Maybe if they were willing to say something along the lines of "There's always room for a little more luxury in life--so we have decided that once per season we will bring you a premium item that we can't price below $100 but which represents the same value as the T-Shirts you know and love"

Just saying goodbye to the idea of the sub-$100 basics, screams like the VCs are knocking on the door asking for some return on their investment.

^LOL. Anyways, a few pgs back someone asked how they would compare the quality of everlane over others such as Uniqlo, and IMO, Everlane is better than Uniqlo.

 

Just realized you're from SF, Dbear. Did you go to the parade?! cheers.gif

How much do the Terry shirts shrink after washing? I like it, but it's too big. I emailed them about it, they basically said "it'll probably shrink some, worth a shot" but I'm not going to try it only to find out I own something I'll never wear.

Was about to return it when I found this thread.

Thanks

Did the sizing and measurements for the OCBD's ever get posted?
post #2391 of 3324
General consensus seems to be that the terry is suppose to fit a little larger. Is that a small or medium? Can't see from the pic.

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.

No worries, I didn't mentioned the website because I figured most regular posters would have already known/seen this.

This.

 

I felt like that was their whole angle, the sub-100 price point. Its not like they regularly had $99 products featured, were really struggling to keep them there and finally, relented and raised prices slightly. The very first test of a product close to $100, and it couldn't be done:(

 

However, I do get it...at the end of the day, they are a business and need to remain profitable. I guess it was too lofty a goal to achieve. In fact, the website doesn't make any references to that sub-100 goal anymore. Regardless, I still really like their overall model: Simple, thoughtfully designed, quality basics for cheap...

Thing is, I've been really looking to find a light grey cashmere crewneck and I thought when everlane announced that exact sweater, I knew it would be a lock...but, not so sure now.
I guess if its hovering just over 100, no big deal. I'll just wait and see tomorrow.

Yeah and Uniqlo cashmere can be had for like $50 sometimes, so that's less than half of everlane's price. I don't really wear my Uniqlo one much now but it lasted a solid two years with no real damage and is fine now

Everlane is almost two years old I think and have a ton of funding for a startup of their type with (as far as I know) little to no return

First heard about Everlane through kleiner perkins , don't think they are the ones pushing it. And the fund details still under $100 http://www.kpcb.com/companies/everlane

Really curious how oxfords are gonna be priced and if they are going to be USA made. http://luminaclothing.com/shop/weekender-oxford-royal-blue/ is at only $78 (no experience and no plans on buying any) but it's USA made and getting decent press. If they price low and are China made, they are at Uniqlo level. If they price high, then fit and fabric have to be pretty good (and hopefully will be) but then comes the question why do I buy Everlane if I know my Gitman / Thom Browne oxfords are super dependable + not much more. Feel like Everlane is stuck right now. Some shirts and weekenders but no real hype. I use my tote everyday and it's held up great, but that seems to have been forgotten

Of course, there are also the Brooks Brothers Made in the USA oxfords, which go on sale for even less than those Luminas with fabric that's a step up from Uniqlo. I think it'd be great if Everlane's are at that level, but with a better fit and possibly at a lower price point. We'll see tomorrow...

Ah yes forgot about them, though I was thinking more of the small scale stores. Wish BB had like an athletic esf option, current esf isn't a good fit for me and anything else is too baggy

+1 I keep asking but these joos haven't replied.

If the OCBD's are 75 USD I would expect them to match up to RLPL or RLBL at least.

Dang, I was expecting the Oxfords to be at a $50 price point to balance out the higher cashmere. More would be better, but I thought that would be there reasoning.

Just went live with the new collections. Get'em before the emails go out!

It's 4:25AM and I am sure there are questions and PMs I need to answer, I promise to get on it tomorrow, but I need to go pass out right now. It's been a totally gonzo week.
Enjoy the collections (and the site re-design!)
