Everlane T-shirts - Page 163

post #2431 of 3376

I ordered the smoke and blue OCBD in a size small. I just went with my t-shirt sizing hoping they'll fit good. 

 

Nan any idea when the merlot terry will be in stock again? and whats up with the weekender 2's?

I wasn't a fan of the earlier colors of the backpacks, I was wishing for a blue like my tote (which is amazing for $35 btw) but this new green looks really nice with the dark brown leather. Also I understand these aren't waxed canvas anymore?

The new backpacks are slightly waxed, not inundated like the original ones. They will shed a slight drizzle without any problems, and the liner is water resistant, so it will also guard against heavier rains.

The sage color is such a great alternative to a white tee. Breaks up the blandness. It's like that one elusive Ervell oxide shirt that looks great worn with lighter color trousers, white, gray,
Love the neckline as well on the crew neck.
I hope it all holds up well after a wash and dry HAHAHA Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Fit looks really good - the fall tees were our most successful product to date, people are really liking them.

We currently don't accept foreign CCs at this time - we have to do everything tax-wise on the up and up, so there are a lot of regulatory issues that we aren't quite read to deal with yet.

We have been putting in a lot of overtime to deal with Sandy - for those of you interested in these kinds of things, we are hosted in Virginia and our email provider is based in New York - so we have been working closely with them to make sure our launch remained on schedule and intact. USPS is probably going to experience some delays in shipping, but we haven't heard anything from them that indicates any real cause for concern.

There are a few things that you will get form our OCBD that you won't really be able to find at Uniqlo.

1. We use much better materials. We chose a really legitimate oxford cloth - it's got a bit of heft to it and it will stand up to quite a bit of wear. We are also using shell buttons instead of plastic ones you typically find with large retailers. It's a small touch but we think our customers will appreciate it.

2. Our shirt is aggressively slim. I usually dart all of my shirts, but there's no need to with this one. We nipped the waist and the arm holes are high. We have no box pleat, so it's not going to fit as many people as a shirt form Uniqlo, but it will fit better on younger, leaner guys.

3. Tiny collars are all the rage at places like Club Monaco, but we opted for longer points, a slight roll. In terms of the market in general, we are aiming to compete as like an alternative to Theory and Vince, and it's completely our intent to create pieces of that caliber, so we are fine with not chasing trends and sticking to our point of view when it comes to design.

This should be fixed now - we were trying to get cute with image caching but we ended up just overloading people's network connections. My bad.

Pretty sure the cashmere sweaters will be right at Everlane's supposed $100 limit.

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 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.

Someone posted our CS rep's response to breaking $100, and I thought that summed it up pretty well.
Basically, when we launched on November 1, 2011, we were a totally different company. I'll post the chart that we had up on our site a couple of days ago.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

We are as surprised as anyone at our growth and we are incredibly grateful that our customers really jive with our message. For those of you who have happened to stop by the office, you know that we are just a bunch of guys and ladies from completely random backgrounds to do something interesting.

Going over $100 opens up product categories, materials and manufacturing processes that we would otherwise be unable to use. I am handing over my LBM jacket to the production guys as a model for a blazer project we are starting on and praying that it comes back in one piece. This is something that we wouldn't have thought about a year ago, and it would be impossible sub $100.
But now we can really hunt around for awesome workshops in NYC and LA to make a really nice tailored piece for an excellent price.

Ordered two ox's, smoke and white, I really don't need another light blue. It's fall/winter, a nice navy would have been much better imo. 
I also ordered two sweaters, the grey heather and the navy, really wish they did that nice heather green I was looking forward to something a little different. 

The smoke ox is fantastic, I ordered 2 myself.

The lowdown on the cashmere is, we have a second delivery coming up, which includes the forest green colorway and cardigans in all colors. We are also working on a third delivery that we are trying to get out in early december, which will have a little something extra.

I placed an order for a medium tee and a small oxford. I have been on an OBD bender lately so I hope this one works.
post #2434 of 3376

Thanks for the post Nan.  How about some 1/4zip sweaters?  May not be the most popular thing around here, but I love em :D

 

EDIT:  Actually, heres a question:

 

How uniform are your sizes across differnet products?  I like the small t's (they fit a little snug on me, which I like, at 5'10, 170lbs), but I'm trying to figure out what size I would like on the sweatshirts, cashmere, and oxfords...

post #2435 of 3376
kinda stupid how all the popular stuff is always sold out in S

wanted to either smoke or light blue oxford, grey vneck cashmere, merlot sweater ...
post #2436 of 3376
Any word on restocks on grey oxford?
post #2437 of 3376
They just came out this morning... I won't expect a restock for a bit, if Everlane restocks items it's usually a minimum of a month but Ox aren't tshirts so i'd assume longer. If the smalls I ordered don't fit I'll be selling them on here.

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 was posting about Everlane before you even joined this forum. They are starting out, so feedback is pretty helpful in terms of what people think. I have a few totes, and have seen the shirts and sweaters and weekenders that friends ordered. New oxford came out, gave my opinion. Fit looks a bit weird on the model and $55 is a decent price but not that good and it doesn't look like they were made in the US. How do you define overpriced? If I can get a Uniqlo oxford for $20-30, put the thickest MOP on them, price would still be under $55. So does that mean Everlane is overpriced? Or I could stop by Marshalls and pick up a Jack Spade oxford in thick rich fabric with MOPs and that's about the same cost. So then is Everlane priced right? Or I could get a Thom Browne Oxford at Barneys with multicolor grosgrain and labels on the front for $320, so then Everlane is chump change?

No I'm saying production costs are probably pretty low

They were made in LA.

ITT, we have people talking about quality cashmere and "on sale for around $120" in the same sentence. Can't say how Everlane's stacks up, but I can tell you Uniqlo knits are pretty terrible. Then again 99% of budget knits are terrible, they're just one of those things that are not well approximated at a low price point.
post #2443 of 3376
Picked up 2 sweaters and 2 OCBD's. Everlane return policy is pretty good so there isn't a lot of downside to ordering early.

I don't really care about the $100 threshold as long as the product I'm getting for $120 is high enough quality to justify the price. Per Everlane's business mantra, these cashmere sweaters would sell "elsewhere" for double/triple the price. Therefore, I'm expecting quite a high quality sweater for $120. If its not ill return, its not the end of the world.

Are the Cashmere made in USA?
post #2444 of 3376
Nice cashmere costs a lot more than triple Everlane's price...

Removing the $100 arbitrary limit should be a good direction though.
post #2445 of 3376
I'm loving the collar roll on the OCBDs, but not sure the "aggressively" slim fit is going to work on me. I'm about 5'11", 195 lbs. and fairly broad through the shoulders and chest from weightlifting. My shirt size is either medium or large depending on brand, and would definitely size up to a large if I were to buy an Everlane oxford. But the website states mediums have 35 inch sleeves. Seems a bit long for a medium. My sleeve size is 34". If I size up to a L, I'm guessing the sleeves are 36 or 37". Surely they'd shrink some after being washed and dried... but the care details on the website say "do not tumble dry." Wait, what?? An oxford shirt that can't be machine dried?puzzled.gif What's the reasoning behind this stipulation? I mean, oxford is supposed to be thick, tough, and able to stand-up to wear and tear. Surely 20 minutes on low heat in the dryer can't harm it...

Getting back to the sleeve length though, the pics Everlane's website show a 6'0" tall model wearing a medium, and the sleeves look too long on him. Sleeves of a medium shirt should not be too long on someone who is 6 feet tall... unless their arms are abnormally short. And that certainly does not appear to be the case on Everlane's model. All that to say that I'd love to order an Everlane oxford, but I'm not very optimistic that the sleeves on a L will fit me. angry.gif
