Everlane T-shirts - Page 211
Lol it's sad but I agree. When they first came out I was a big fan of the tees and their fit. With normal wear and wash, 1 tee developed a small hole in it and a couple others had the stitching break. (1 at the hem and the other on the sleeve) I can't remember this ever happening to any other tees of mine.
My point in saying that was that the brand is still new and they're still learning how to make stuff. I'm not sure how the tote and weekender would hold up when my tees have problems.
Even though none of my tees have had any problems, surely their fabric makes them more susceptible to damage than something sturdier like their tote or weekender, no? I returned the tote because I didn't think it was a good value (and my Filson Sportsman is more than enough), but I really doubt it'd have any problems with wear and tear. My OG backpack has held up fantastically and I don't baby it at all, and the newer versions look even better constructed.
Took the plunge on the new reverse denim backpack.....thanks for the pic/advice..
Btw the new leather products look pretty good. Been wanting a zipper wallet for some time.
Hey Timbaland, sucks that the tees didn't hold up. We pull about 10% of our production lot to closely inspect, so some will slip through the cracks. PM me your account info and I'll get you a replacement ASAP.
Tomorrow our new tees drop and from this production batch forward we've updated a few things:
- Since we use turn back construction for the hem, we went from a 1/2" hem to a 5/8" hem. This will keep the hem from flipping up
- Switched from 30's rib to 20's rib which is slightly thicker and will help ensure the collar lays flat.
- Removed 1/2" in length on sizes XS-L
- Sleeves are 1/4" longer on sizes XS-L
We haven't sold through all of our inventory so wait a few weeks if you want to get the latest iteration.
I bought one and walked over to the production team to show them how funny it looked on me. They know and they're working on updating it for future batches.
New backpacks were posted today. They have a modified and deeper water bottle pocket design. Thats honestly my biggest and only complaint about my back pack. I have used daily for over a year due to the shallow pocket its pretty much worthless as a bottle holder everything falls out. I even bought other water bottles to try to remedy the situation to no avail. So basically I carry my water bottle around with two empty water bottle holders. Anyways good to see they recognized the issue although doesn't help me any .
I'll help you out man. PM me your account info.
Let me know what you think of the program, we're testing it with a small group.
I finally took advantage of the Everlane free shipping and ordered 3 of the crew tees. Out of the box the fabric feels very nice, nicer than J.Crew slim fit tees (if I could find a better tee I would buy it elsewhere, esp. something U.S. made). At first wearing I did not like the fit - chest is too tight compared to the waist, as others have pointed out. However the fabric is super stretchy and the chest loosened up nicely after a few wears. But that stretchiness has its drawbacks - the collar is pretty awful. Over the course of a single wearing the neck will stretch significantly and look messy. Tees should be clean and simple, not saggy and loose, so it's a serious flaw imo. It's cotton, I shouldn't have to baby it. I'm going to keep trying them out for a while, but will probably avoid buying any more shirts from Everlane.
So 6 months later... and the everlane t-shirts are my favorite now :-). Funny how time changes opinions. The shirts seem to get better with further washings. The stretchiness turns out to be a feature - they shrink in the wash, then mold after wearing, while remaining nice and soft. The neckline still scrunches up, but it's not a big deal to me anymore.
My j.crews look worn out after 6 months, yet the everlanes still look good. I've also been messing around with uniqlo's offerings, and while okay, the necklines are too big.
So +1 for everlane. Medium @ 6'1" 175lbs. I'll keep buying.
The fit on them so far is pretty good, the only noticeable difference is that the hem on the slate coloured tee is smaller than the hem on the white and muted black ones. The material is quite nice. I guess I'll have to see how they hold up. I'm hoping to see what people think of the new batch of tees compared to the older ones.
