Everlane T-shirts - Page 162

post #2416 of 3352
Looking at the closer pictures of the collar, I feel that the button placement is way too low on the shirt; if it were placed higher you'd have a much better collar roll. Right now it looks like the collars are stretching their gosh darndest trying to reach that button. Any further and they'd just give up.

Also I don't really get why the hips flare out so much. Like someone said, it could be remedied by darts, but that still requires extra effort/money. I think I'll pass.

Also, how does the OCBD stand up after 3 months of wear?

I love how it's always people bitching and hating in here, but go in any thread of the overpriced brands (who don't have perfect fits for multiple times more $$) and everyone is defending them as if it's a first born child. They are $55 with what looks like a pretty good fit (with out a box pleat) and river shell buttons. 

If this type of brand isn't your cup of tea just move on. If you have something worth while to complain about or think they should look into changing by all means everyone is open to opinions. The major issue with a brand like this who takes what people say into consideration is you just can't make everyone happy, everyone wants something different.

Hell Caltax spam post in here bitching about how it better not have a box pleat (for example on this one product) but I can almost guarantee he hasn’t & isn’t buying an oxford. So should his input not matter? Or isn’t a valid point?

I guess my point is, using the French Terry misconception as a base line. Let people receive and test the fit out before complaining just because you’re bored.

I put in an order for a white and blue OCBD; I'll reserve judgement until they arrive. You can always return, so I figure why not? If they fit me well, great. If the cut doesn't work for me, no real harm.

Regarding the pictures -- it's hard to tell from a single model/photoshoot. There are loads of pictures out there of Gitman Vintage, WvG, etc. looking whack.

I would prob buy some stuff if there were XLs. Weird that a brand this far along (70,000 tees sold!) still doesn't offer an XL.

Actually, the point of a forum is to provide people the opportunity to express opinions, and allow the reader to see/experience a diverse range of opinions. To take the time to complain because people don't share the same opinion as you or have an issue with a brand / product is pretty childish.

I'm disappointed with the fit pics for the OCBD, but Everlane is notorious for terrible model shots so I still have high hopes that the shirts will fit well (and for the price can't go wrong).

Biggest shocker in my opinion is the price point on the cashmere: a $120 cashmere sweater is well worth it, but Everlane's whole motto was (is?) staying under $100. At $120 you can wait around for sales and get some pretty nice stuff.

Everlane doesn't have sales. The idea was that their prices were already at a point where sales were unnecessary.

He was talking about sales from other brands/websites. You can already cop some uniqlo cashmere for $80 right now.

Edit: Also copped a white oxford. Will review when it arrives.

Those of you that picked up Oxfords can you share what size you bought and what your measurements are?

Have you even read any of this thread? Or for that matter the post you are replying to? My issue is with people who complain before buying the product or for that matter people who complain who never buy products from the vendor they are complaining about.

I bought two smalls (hopefully they come out with other colors as I'd really like to pick up a good number more if the fit is spot on), & I wear a small in Gitman, RL BL,PL,PL Custom Fit, & I'll post pix when they come in.

Speaking of pix will be posted shortly of my new army green backpack & new t-shirts (new fit and colors)

Spent a bunch of money on other things lately so I'm going to hold off on ordering some oxfords until people get some sizing discussion in (also, might save Everlane from the hassle of me ordering multiple sizes and then returning them). I can be hard to fit on non-stretchy and long-sleeve items but at that price it will still be worth it after alterations if they are nice.

Hope the colored cashmere is still in the works. As sad as I am about the sweaters breaking the $100 mark, $120 seems fair if we are still getting the 3x value proposition. The weekenders definitely aren't worth 3x, but other new products seem to be.

So what's the deal with sizing for the terry's now? Are people just not buying them at all anymore? I'm a true medium, bit of an athletic build so I don't like things being too slim. I want to try the terry in black and slate tee shirt. Would ordering both of them in a medium be ok?

I figure its free shipping and return so better to try now.
