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?

You calling me out brah?

I thought we were cool. plain.gif

I have bough over 15 everlane t-shirts that I use for pleb wear, if you guys don't like my comments block me.

Oh and by the way I bitch about my RLPL shirts too.

The collar roll looks nice but if the shirts are flaring at the hips that's going to suck for us non anorexic guys. But on the plus side it will work for you flat chested hipsters.

Serious question.

Do side pleats add a significant level of comfort, would a shirt look weird with side pleats and darts?

Do side pleats add a significant level of comfort? No. Would darts look weird with them? Nah. They'd look weird with a box pleat. I think darts would look a bit out of place on an OCBD in general, though, no matter what type of pleating.

Where did you see this info? Feel like it would be mentioned on product page?
post #2452 of 3376
I'm not convinced that they are made in the USA. It doesn't say so on the product page, while the t-shirts do. Honestly, except for the buttons, pocket shape at the bottom, and pleat choice, the gray oxford looks eerily similar to my uniqlo one in both fabric and stitching.

Yeah that's what I thought as well, but that guys seems pretty sure they are. And Nan probably would have mentioned it if they were

It's much more like shopping at Gap in the US.
Not to mention most of Club Monaco's clothing is made in China @ the RL factory. CM is nothing amazing, they do sell some exclusive items from other US brands but the quality is only a step above Uniqlo at best.

Ok, maybe Walmart was an exaggeration, but I go to college here, and lets just put it this way, no one brags about buying their clothes at Uniqlo...

I can't imagine anyone would brag about a $30 OCBD, but that has nothing to do with what quality or value for money it is, does it?

I don't think anyone brags about buying stuff at Uniqlo.  But you do want to share with people how good their basics are, especially when you factor in the prices.

waiting for some fit pics, but I got more info from reddit.  http://cl.ly/image/0J2u453e2N2n

 

I'll wait for the second batch, but I'm hoping there will be a bit more colors for the oxfords.  I want something a bit darker than the smoke (w+h charcoal color) and maybe another white oxford since you can't ever have too many of those.

Ordered last night and got a tracking number this morning icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Located in the Bay Area too, so it should get to me fast.

Only ordered some tees and a black terry though. The oxford doesn't really appeal to me... I have so many from Uniqlo/Gitman/etc already. But if the reviews are decent I may consider one. It's really hard to beat Uniqlo oxfords at sale price though. Picked up 3 when they were $15 at the opening sale in SF.

I was excited about the OCBD's, but after seeing them, I'll be passing on them.  OCBD's aren't something I wear super regularly, and even with the description, doesn't seem to be enough to justify the 2x Uniqlo prices.  I do like the Uniqlo oxfords quite a bit. 

 

On the other hand, the cashmere sweaters look very nice.  I got a sample in the mail 10 days ago of the cashmere and it was great.  I'm rather new to nice clothes (about 10 months in) and have very little cashmere.  I agree with the earlier posters saying that cashmere just doesn't hold up great at the low price points.  Uniqlo cashmere isn't much to write home about.  I've ordered the light grey everlane cashmere, will post pics.

 

Also, am I the only one that thinks the grey and orange mens scarf preview looks mad sexy? :)

The OCBD's collars reminds me of GBV's collars, or am I wrong? How is the cashmere sweater compared to PRL cashmere sweater? They can be compared, because you can get a PRL cashmere sweater for the same price from ebay.
