Yes, I don't know what the exact timelines are, probably a ways out, but we had espadrille samples in a couple of weeks ago and we have talked about doing a basic low-profile leather sneaker with no branding.

90% of SF would prefer a taper and 60% would like another 1" in length. The average non SF member would also like an 1" or 2" in length. IMO it would be best to add at least an inch in length and taper them.

Your point is well taken, the changes to the large were last minute - we did it "cowboy style" and didn't even sample the taper on it - we trusted our pattern maker on this one. Our shirts used to be 0.75 inches longer actually, but we got so many customer complaints about it that we shortened it. I think the length will probably stay where it is for the time being. Most of our customers who wear small are not quite as tall as SF guys.

Hey Kiya, feel free to drop by our office in San Francisco any time. Michael, Edoardo and I would be glad to shoot the shit.
We are different from American Giant in a few ways
- We sell men's and women's clothing and accessories
- Our price points are significantly lower, we do not have external branding on our products
- Most of our products are made in the US, but that's not a hard rule for us. Our backpacks are made in China for instance.
- If I had to summarize our philosophy, it would be: We look for huge businesses that we feel people are overpaying for, or getting under-delivered to in quality, or both - and we go into those businesses with the intention of competing and scaling. I'll give you some examples:
1. AA and Barney's Private Label T-shirts and sweatshirts
2. Longchamp bags
3. RL belts
4. Fjlraven backpacks
5. A lot of "Made in USA" neckwear brands
6. Common Projects
We won't ever compete with brands like Alden or Paul Stuart (can't beat them on quality, and the business doesn't scale).
Any and all feedback is appreciated!
We sampled a few of those a while back. We will most likely not sell those in the current configuration, but it's something we are looking into.
Thanks man! We will probably have teaser pics of the duffles out soon.

Awesome, thanks. What mill is producing the fabric for the basic tees? It's in the US?

I actually don't know - the product guys are in LA on business, but when I get in touch with them I will find out for you.

Agreed on the extra length needed (around 1 inch).

This is because I'm guessing most people who are buying this brand are more athletically fit, so even taller dudes 5'10 and up are still buying smalls. And they could sure use another inch for me haha.

As a 6 foot even guy who is enjoying his tee in medium, I wouldn't buy any more if they are lengthened. Just my 2 cents.

x2. I wear a small and fit is fine with both the length and fit. Granted I wear my shirts slightly on the tight side since I have gained some mass this past year.

I just need to get the colored v-necks before any changes are made

Hey, I just wanted to say that I just receive my first batch of Everlane tee's and I'm really impressed with the quality! However, I find it a bit tight on the chest/shoulders and I'm thinking I should size up. I'm 5"9 and around 140lbs and I got an XS. How much bigger is the P2P and the Shoulders on the size small?

Also, since I proxied the items, is it still possible to return them from Canada?

Thanks a lot!

PS: Can't wait till the Common Project-esque shoes!

I guess it depends on the torso length, but I'm 6'0 and I could use an inch although it doesnt really matter

I'm pretty much identical to your dimensions and I bought both a medium and a small to try. IMO the small might be too tight for my 37" chest after washing. It's fairly tight in the shoulder now. I'll snap fit pics of both tonight.

The material of these shirts is quite nice. As far as construction goes there are stitched seams running the length of the shirt whereas American Apparel is seamless. Shoulder seams have 10 stitches per inch, American Apparel has 12-13. Material is a little thinner than AA but feels a lot better to the touch. Arm holes don't flare as much as AA but if I were making the shirts I'd adjust the height of the holes a little.

I'll be getting my t-shirts from Everlane from now on.

Cant believe i missed out on so much and am too lazy to read this the entire thread.
Do you offer any other colors for the shirts/sweaters? I would definitely buy a navy tshirt or sweater

I'm 6'4" with a 39" chest and I just ordered a large v-neck. I have a feeling this thing is going to be crazy baggy on me but whatever.

Yup.  I'm 6'3" and I wear a large...  Its the perfect length right now, if it was any longer it would look like a nightgown.

international shipping yet?!

Guys, they cant make a fit that works for everyone. I'm 6'6" and have had to live with the fact that most brand's button ups are too short for me. Would love to see the arms lengthened on them all, but it's just not going to happen. Companies have a mass market with body type averages to hit.
