Slim knit blazers are up for anyone who signed up for early access.

Order placed for 2 knit blazers navy and gray

Went with size medium to layer... being that there is no lining I am sure the cotton will pull with just a shirt on, anyways.

They look pretty good in fit pics but the closeups make them look like the dry jersey jacket Uniqlo had last year which was like $20. Will wait for reviews too

I bought a couple to check out the sizing and colors. I figure it's free shipping on two or more items, and although it's unlikely I'll keep either, I only end up paying shipping one way to try them on.

I got a seedstitch sweater. Overall, I like it, but the neck is wayyyy too small. I can barely get my head through it. Do they test their clothes on real people before selling them??? This is not something that's easy to miss. The sweater is also really thin. Was hoping it would be made of a thicker (and more durable) material. Since it was pretty expensive, I might send it back...

 

Everlane made their name offering expensive clothes on a budget. Instead, it seems like they've been selling cheaply designed clothes for a lot of money. Not sure why I keep buying from them, but this might be my last purchase.

I'm considering one of those blazers but will wait on a review or two before I go ahead. And after the sizing fiasco with that oxford shirt I'm not sure if I'm a L or XL. Anywho, post your thoughts in here please, folks who've ordered one.

I haven't ordered any clothing from them, but their duffle bag is fantastic.

Everlane Slim Knit Blazer Review

  • Size: Medium
  • Color: Navy and Gray

I picked these up 3 days ago and received them today.

I'd usually provide measurements but I have relegated them to my garage to be hung up, to be safe, as my brother who picked up the package said he developed a bad rash after touching the brown bag (it could be the other package that came in, not sure). And I also want to get all the wrinkles out before I try it on a second time.

For reference: I am 5'9 and 150-155 lbs.

I picked up a medium jacket in the navy and gray. My initial reaction when I opened up the brown bag was how nicely folded they were, how heavy the bag was, and how thick the jacket looked. One concern I always have with jackets is how high the buttoning point is set. After unfolding the gray jacket I was relieved that the button was low, set at a decent level. The gray is also much darker than I had assumed though looking back at the photos online, pic #4 is pretty accurate.



In no particular order.

The good:
  1. I have to say I like this type of cotton material in place of canvased cotton. The latter IME and from what I've seen is too structured yet does not provide the shape and drape like wool. I would not describe the Everlane jacket as jersey cotton i.e. something alone the lines of Wings+Horns sweats, it has a thick and courser hand. It is stiffer, prone to wrinkles setting in as can be seen if you ordered a jacket and unpackage it.
  2. The jacket is pretty thick. While I walked outside with it on a gust of wind blew my direction and surprisingly my back did not get chilly nor my arms.
  3. Versatility (see later comments)


The bad:
  1. I am not a fan of three patch pockets. I wish the chest was welted. For some this may make it too casual, hence, limit its wear
  2. The lapel is nice but toward the end it feels a little thin. As a result it feels and looks a bit flimsy. And because it is cotton it does not drape well but sits lifelessly. From the top of the lapel to the bottom, the thickness does not feel consistent
  3. The jacket is slim in that the waist is shaped close to your body. It is very apparent if you button it up. Because of this it may not fit some body types i.e. wide hips.
  4. Jacket is not particularly long, but it is a more casual blazer. Just thought I'd note it
  5. No vents. Just thought I'd note it
  6. This did give me the impression that a place like Land's End would carry the same jacket. If you are picking up this jacket I think Everlane is banking on the idea of a knit blazer, which is prevalent nowadays (see later comments)


I am leaning towards keeping this as my overall impression is I can throw this on while getting work done on weekends, or wear it to the office. For the latter, what I'd recommend is an OCBD rather than a spread collar. I would never wear this with a tie. If I am not wearing a suit but an odd jacket all day (or cardigan, sweater), a softer fabric is what I'd reach for with less structure, and this jacket fills the void. I want to wear this to replace cardigans as I feel the lapel shapes my head and neckline better than a cardigan unless it is a shawl collar IMO. Too many plain v-neck collar cardigans that I am not a fan of as a standalone, but could look great layered. On that note, the size I ordered probably would not offer enough room for a layer. I can just wear a shirt/tee underneath. FWIW, my intentions was to wear this to work in lieu of cardigans or sweaters.

I felt like I was wearing a hoodie, and thought what a great alternative this is (I tried it on while wearing tapered sweat pants and tee).

I'd imagine this jacket fitting great for those who may have a huge drop and slimmer legs.

The selling point for me was that this was at least 100% cotton. Uniqlo is putting out a lot of poly blend odd jackets, which after seeing in person and feeling was rather disappointing. More so, their cut and style e.g. buttoning point is not at all flattering. To add, the polyester blend lends itself to the jacket looking more structured (note the shoulders). I think this cotton knit blazer from Everlane is both structured and relax, a good medium between the two silhouettes. In contrast, you can find tons of designers putting out similar jackets nowadays and one prime example is Barena. Barena would be a better choice seeing how it is composed of mostly wool, has more styles e.g. pocket variations, buttoning points, vented, and still maintains the similar cut i.e. slim and cropped for a more casual look. You can also find tons of jackets on Yoox that fit these exact specifications... though keep in mind the various price points respective to your jacket of choice.

post #3312 of 3374

can you post a few pics, @gettoasty?  Thanks for the review...you sound like you like it more than I thought most of SF would.  I'm kinda on the fence but for the price i guess it can't be beat.

post #3313 of 3374
Definitely need some fit pics. Great review.

Thanks for the review toasty. I'm not up to date on MC terms. What is a welted chest?
