Everlane T-shirts - Page 170

post #2536 of 3338
Got both a slate and white oxford today in size Large. I'm 6'2 and 185.

Oxford fits pretty good everywhere. I don't notice a hip flare that much it's pretty slim throughout the entire body. Armholes are very slim. I don't consider myself extremely muscular, but my shoulders are broad. 42" chest and it fits close to borderline too slim, but it's great on me right now. Need to iron out the wrinkles. Also, I typically have 35/36 arm length in dress shirts, these sleeves seem to be a tad bit shorter which makes them great for casual wear. Was worried they'd be too long as shown on ever lane model.

I definitely have broader shoulders / arms M in Gitman and 3 in Thom Browne, Thom Browne is a little slimmer but not by much for me. Anybody with more built upper bodies get an oxford yet?

To the people ironing OCBDs... lawlz. Oxfords are supposed to be a bit wrinkled/rumpled. Lots of people complaining about sleeves being too long... I totally called that, based solely on the model pics on Everlane's website. And to the person wearing an OCBD under a one-button, shawl collar tuxedo jacket... double lawlz.

Got my cashmere v-neck yesterday.  Fit is slim and well proportioned.  I'm 5' 9" and 153, and the medium fits perfectly.  The material is thick and comparable to Brooks Brothers in construction and quality.  I'm very happy with it.   You guys nailed it on this one.  

 

I did not risk the OCBD because the stated sleeve length on a medium is 35", which is ape-like in length.  Shorten the sleeves to 33", and I'll bite.  Also, at the $55 price point, I can pay $10 more for a must-iron BB OCBD which is probably better fabric and comes in exact neck and sleeve lengths.  They even have extra slim fit.  

 

What I *do not* like about BB OCBD's in the ridiculous length, which makes them look weird untucked.  If Everlane can match the BB quality at a lower price point and use a modern cut, they'd kill it.  Also, the gray oxford == win.  I'm not surprised it's already sold out. 

 

Finally, the collar on the Everlane oxford looks awesome, but the placket is out of proportion with the collar (too small compared to the collar).  With a ballsy collar like that, I'd like to see a wider/beefier placket.

I have my OCBDs starched at the cleaners.  foo.gif

The slim fit OCBD in the extra fine cotton is much different than the traditional Uniqlo OCBD FWIW (I have owned both). I prefer the former for office wear as the fabric has a smoother hand.
As photoed:

The fabric is not as grainy and after a hauling hour or more of steaming out the creases (the arms give me the most work) it looks much nicer IMO. YMMV
Again, I am talking about the Uniqlo EFC Slim Fit OCBD. Sorry Nan.

You may want to reevaluate this outfit.

I wear OCBDs 5 days a week because I can but I still like it to be wrinkle free.

^I took in the sleeves on the Ervell but left the body alone. Don't plan on wearing it anymore than just a jacket over a tee or sweater. I don't have the matching pants so it would not be a complete outfit though I did snag a navy Ervell jeans and dress pants last week off of GILT. Hopefully the colors match close enough to wear for fun together.

I'm not sure who these were cut for -- someone with a 2" drop? My girlfriend described the fit as the same as a women's shirt. I don't know if I'll keep it - would need to be shortened. Can anyone comment on how much these shrink in a wash?

This seems to be part for the course for their size L items if the t-shirts are any indication...cut for someone who has zero need for taper.

They seem like they are cut for the interviewer in this video and not for someone who is a true L with a waist in the 6-8" drop range:What I don't get is why they don't just taper down the L for the athletic large dudes and then make an XL that is basically the current L (straight from the chest to the waist) for the hefty large dudes

So. 1-ply, 2-ply, 3-ply cashmere?

gf loves the silk blouse. she's an xs but she said the sleeves are a little slim. says it's too hard to roll the sleeves up much. she has to roll/cuff the sleeves first before putting the shirt on for it to work.

I would hope it's at least two ply.

I got an Medium Oxford. I'm 6' 165lbs 39-40 inch chest and a true 31 inch waist. The shirt fits perfectly until the hip flare. I flares out pretty significantly in my opinion. I'm gonna have to return it.
