Everlane T-shirts - Page 191

post #2851 of 3357
I doubt sizing down would help with how boxy the sleeves are....

That said,

- I have one of their flannel shirts, and it's ungodly soft. It also somehow fits slim in spite of having a box pleat.
- I actually like the terry blazer they just came out with. I'm wearing it in a recent WAYWT (from yesterday, I think). I sized down one to a 38.

Relative to Everlane, the buttons and fabric aren't as nice, and the construction isn't necessarily up to par. Everlane has a core set of offerings with gradual product releases that are fine-tuned over time. F&O has a wider variety of products, but they don't seem to put as much thought into the details.

I also have a flannel from F&O and can confirm that it is indeed ungodly soft. Very thick and warm. Very happy about the flannel I received a few days ago.

I picked up a gray cashmere hat and scarf. Very pleased with it, the scarf is nice and chunky. Compared to my Johnston of Elgin cashmere scarf it's much thicker, more casual.

 

I think I might be able to wear them with my black lamb ToJ CWU and brown calf ToJ 4-zip moto when the weather's cold. Are these SF-approved combos?

i wish it were that simple.

 

but unless the small has a 2.5 inches shorter back, 1.5 inches shorter sleeves, 1 inch "narrower" sleeves, etc... i doubt it would help any bit.

So, does Everlane always ask the buyer to send them a photo if there is something wrong with the order e.g. I had ordered a large white tee and got holes on the side.

This is a bit ridiculous. What if I don't have a camera? lol

Fair enough. Possibly an XS then? Its sounding like the new shirts are almost two sizes to big (if you want a slim fit & size wise = Gitman).

Um ... I think EVERY retailer asks the buyer to send a photo if there is something wrong with the order. How else is your complaint even vaguely verifiable?!

Gilt asked the same of me when I bought a CK Collection shirt advertised as "Made in Italy", which turned out to be "Made in Tunisia" or something.

It's part of a new social media campaign.

Make sure you post the pic to instagram and tag it with #shirtswithholes

No way, no retailer has ever asked me to send a photo if I said I received a product damage.  It's just plain bad business.

 

But then again, their margins are probably so low that they can't afford any spoilage.  The thing is, they must be skimping on the production or materials to try to reach that price point since the hole thing is not new. 

 

 

Also, don't know how other companies have supima cotton tees for $12--must be making it up on economies of scale

if i get a XS, ill have to wear the shirt like Hasselhoff... 4 buttons down bcz my chest wont fit anymore

 

 

 

Oh and about that taking photo crap mentioned earlier??? No... its plain ridiculous. First of all, its a $15 shirt... Cmon Everlane, stop being such cheap shits. 

And to compare it to GILT is not much of an improvement. Both Everlane and Gilt have the shittiest shipping/return/exchanges policy.

 

(lets make the customers pay a fortune on shipping)

even though we dont have any in-store locations...

 

They both need to adopt a system like Bonobos or Zappos. 

 

 

To expect online only customers to get the order right on the first try every time is silly.

I've only ever had to take photos when claiming something really expensive and hard to ship, like a tv, furniture, etc. Pictures for a shirt is definitely ridiculous, and to be honest a little insulting to the customer.
post #2864 of 3357
Guys everlanes customer service isn't bad. Take a fucking picture and be done with it. If you have a problem with their customer service go shop at Neiman's.

Their shirts are great for a 15 USD shirt.

I've ordered over 25 tees and will continue ordering more because they are cheap. I use them for the gym now. And yeah a few shirts had holes but Nan took care of it.

The biggest issue I had was the shitty v neck on the white shirts but whatevz.
