Everlane T-shirts - Page 173

post #2581 of 3354
Just got my Everlane OCBDs today, purchased all three in the event that I liked the fit. I'm 5'4" and 125 lbs. Have to say material wise I really like the soft cotton. Sleeves are too long for me but I can get it tailored. Length is also a bit excessive. I think that excess length for the button for an option to tailor like Uniqlo OCBDs would be ideal. The flair out is just absurd, but that can be fixed with the length adjustment. My main gripe with this shirt is the collar. It is far too large for the XS. It's not very flattering on the neck at all and I'm not crazy about the shape of the collar when they're buttoned up. I'm going to take one of them to my tailors to see what they can do otherwise they'll likely go back.

Quick comparison of Uniqlo regular fit OCBD and the everlane one, both in blue.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)







Everlane laid flat over uniqlo

Fabric on the everlane is softer and lighter, I actually really like it. Collar is a little whack I guess. Only real complaint would be that the buttons are way too thin, but they could always be replaced pretty easy. It seems like the issue with hip flair is definitely just how it's cut. I'd imagine a few dollars at the tailor would get that sorted. Overall, pretty decent shirt.

Measurements for a medium as follows:
Front Shoulder - 17.5"
Pit to pit - 21.5"
Waist - 20.5"
Opening at end - 21.5"
Sleeve length - 26"
Back Length - 30"

not sure if youre serious...other people have commented on this as well.

 

my internet is my university internet and i can assure you it's better than whatever you're on. also it's not the internet speed that's slowing it down it's whatever the hell javascripts/caching they added trying to make the site look pretty but instead it just runs slow.

People are just joking around. You seem pretty tech savvy with your fast internet connection so you can understand how confusing it is for the rest of us with normal browsers and computers and slow internet speeds to not see the same issues you are. Have you considered that it may be a problem with your setup? Perhaps a rogue plugin?

Got the cashmere sweater in a small. Quality material. At first I thought it fit a bit loose and long (bigger than their french terries), but I decided I like it. Hopefully it'll last a while.

Just got my fall color t-shirts - dusk and antique v-neck. Gotta say I love the colors, but the sizing definitely is different than my last order. I got them in xs: same as my last order (which was a navy crew neck and a black v-neck which fit fantastically). This order, however, is too small and unfortunately has to go back. I'm going to size up the v-necks and see what happens.

that's what i'm talking about with everlane having inconsistent sizes/fits.

props to VLSI for posting good pics of the oxford. that's some serious thin buttons. i see what people are talking about now with the placket and collar size not being well proportioned too.
i'm just going to wait to see the china produced oxfords and see what changes occur

Buttons are thin but strong much better then any plastic bs. I don't think the collar vs placket is an issue, its very close to the Gitman.

Is the quality close to Gitman though? I guess i'll just have to reserve any judgement until I have an Everlane oxford to compare with my Gitmans and Brooks.

Unreasonable, yes, but it's Everlane's fault.

 

Remember when they started and published this infographic:  http://well-spent.com/2012/01/25/why-clothes-cost-what-they-do/

 

The entire marketing message was "we're going to give you top-of-the-line stuff for an awesome price".  So when it turns out that's not always true, of course people are disappointed.

Its probably your computer, my old laptop has a single core centrino in it and feels a bit slow on this site. My octacore desktop has no such problems. Post your specs.

Its just us, I'm having the same problem.  The universe hates mets fans... :)

post #2594 of 3354

us poor mets fans :(  lol

 

i've got a macbook pro with a core2duo at 2.4ghz and 4gb of ram. i think i should be able to handle it. not to toot my own horn but i'm also extremely tech savvy.  the browser i'm using is firefox 16.0.2 for mac OS X and the problem is pretty much isolated to the home screen, just for reference.

 

@sygyzy: thank you for the real response. i thought more people were having this issue and was actually just trying to bring it to nan's attention (i'm pretty sure he actually handles the tech side of things over there?). i know that this problem has influenced me to not visit their store (site) as often as i might normally, so i was thinking others could have had the same experiences/thoughts and it could be hurting their business. but yea i'll look into plugins that could be causing issues but i really don't think it's on my end. the site is actually running much better today than it has been in the past, so who knows.

 

 

 

 

on a completely unrelated note: i'm thinking about returning the medium navy blue french terry sweatshirt i bought a few weeks ago (haven't worn it yet). don't really like the fit, plus the head hole is way too big to wear a t-shirt under it (which was why i bought it -- if i'm gonna be wearing a button down i'll put on a sweater instead).  how do returns work exactly? i know there's the button to create a return, but i don't wanna hit the button until i'm sure about returning. i'm assuming i have to pay for shipping for the way back? how much would that cost for a sweatshirt? if i bought 2 items to get the free shipping and then return one of the items, do i lose the credit for the free shipping and get 5 dollars less than i would have? thanks!

Without having any info on how Everlane does it, standard practice is that...

 

...if you are returning b/c you just don't want it and not because of (a) defect or (b) they sent the wrong item, then return shipping is paid by the buyer.  The seller will refund total amount, less the shipping cost to you (which is $0 if you got free shipping).  That's standard.

 

...although some retailers will offer free return shipping and include a return label in the box.  This is definitely a perk, and can only really work with retailers that do high volume, so I doubt Everlane offers that.
