I picked up 3 of the crew neck shirts in the special colors. Collars lying flat so far after several wash/dry cycles.

So, my Everlane experience: I haven't gotten Everlane tees in a while but my old ones are still going strong. Some collars have stretched and some are fine. Sizing seems to vary across all 10 or so of them, purchased at differing time points. I got a M oxford when the first came out, it was too tight in the chest. I just picked up the new indigo one to try out the "updated" fit. Fits much better, color is amazing, I will agree with others that the arms are cut strangely low--but for the price point it's solid and better than my previous experience with the oxford. I have one of the first released french terry sweatshirts and the collar is totally screwed on that one, can't comment on any "updates" to it.
Overall, Everlane seems to be hit and miss. Tees are great for a lightweight comfy material but it's too bad about the inconsistent sizing. Some fit awesome, others are relegated to undershirts.
thats what i thought very thin but materials were good but now the stitching on the side is coming loose...
I'm not a dude, but I did pick up a few of the new cashmere sweaters when they came out, and since I've appreciated the info in this thread, even though not all of it applies to me, I figured I'd tell you about my experience so far.
Now, I'm not a cashmere connoisseur by any measure, I'm only just this year getting into 100% cashmere, and I've not shelled out the money for any of the super-expensive stuff, but I have purchased several cashmere pieces from other companies and I'll try to make a comparison. I will not include "cashmere" from regular mall brands, only the stuff I've recently started buying.
First, I have 2 Equipment brand sweaters, a pull-over V and a cardigan. These normally retail for $320-$380. The yarn appears to be 2-ply (just from what I can tell as a knitter) Both of these were very soft and had zero itch factor (unlike mall brands I have purchased in the past). The pullover was knit at a slightly looser guage, and I'm very glad I didn't pay anywhere close to retail for it, because it pilled after 1 wear, and it has a hole in it now too. The cardigan was knit at a bit of a tighter guage, so it has fared better, it has a few pills on it after a couple months too though.
Second, I recently purchased a Neiman Marcus cashmere turtleneck. These retail for about $225. The yarn appears to be 2-ply. This sweater was knit at a smaller guage than either of the Equipment sweaters, and it has proven more durable than them. It is unfortunately a bit itchy though. Not enough for me to stop wearing it, but I do have to wear a shirt underneath.
Now for Everlane: I bought 2 of the women's crew neck and 1 of the men's v-neck. Somehow I was able to order one of the crew necks a week early, so I've had that one for a little over a week now. I was pretty excited to get it so I put it on right away, and then promptly got soot from the wood stove all over the sleeve. I hand-washed it twice, and have worn it twice since it dried, and I have yet to find a pill on it, which is nice. We'll see how it holds up over time, but I'm pretty impressed so far. This yarn also appears to be 2-ply, and it looks like it is knit at about the same guage as my NM sweater, but it is absolutely not itchy, too, and I find almost every wool-type fiber at least a little itchy. Also, while I purchased the women's crew neck in a small and a medium (I wanted one to be more relaxed), I liked the look of the men's V neck more than the women's one, so I bought an XS in the men's v neck, and I think it's my favorite out of the batch. I have a long torso, so while the women's crew hits just below my pants waistband, the men's V is a good 3 inches longer, and the neckline is pretty comfy too.
Unfortunately I don't have any of last season's Everlane cashmere to compare to, but I hope this helps you a little. I'm really happy with my cashmere so far, and I'm very excited for the hoodie and the cardigans to come out next month.
