    So, on the site it recommends using HopShopGo for international orders, but I can't find Everlane in their list of retailers?

    My girlfriend has it in bone. It's very nice. Only complaint is it's hard to snap with one hand unless the bag is really full. The drawstrings prevent anything from falling out, so it wasn't a deal breaker.

    I bought a large number of items from Everlane over the past couple of years. Now, I will only get something if it looks unusually good for them. Most of their stuff is just a little bit off.

    Exceptions I've found: EFM scarves are GREAT and I love them. My cashmere hoodie is also one of my favorites.

    For those interested, I just orders the swim short (navy) and the lightweight bomber (black) yesterday, both in XS. I'll post comments once I get them.


    (I wanted to note, Everlane's current pricing strategy is to effectively double their cost x2 to create their retail price. The reason that sometimes this ends up in oddly high pricing is because the reality is, Everlane's costs are probably a lot higher than other's brands. I do believe it costs them $21 to create the swim short I just bought, but that is likely due to their low volume. If CK made the same suit, their costs would likely be much lower. So in the end, I feel like their strategy actually doesn't work. Anyways, I'll see if I like these items enough to keep them or not.)

    I've been on the fence about that bomber. There's something odd about the way that collar looks.

    Now that you mention it, I see what you mean. It sticks out really far, like it looks all weird. I still have time to cancel my order haha

    Honestly I don't know why they decided to put some odd stand up button down collar instead of just going traditional.

    If Everlane made a decent Nylon MA-1 that fit well and didn't try to do some weird shit, it would sell out easily at that price point.

    The stand collar is pretty traditional, just a diff style from the stadium collar. And that's what gets me about it-- it's a bit too standard issue. Like some Macy's ish. Oh well

    For me, it's not so much that it's a stand collar but more like how the corner point is a little too exaggerated and oversized. It's just a weird proportion.

    Going to be abroad for the remainder of the month.

    The weekender has everything I need except the clothes on my back, with room to spare (at least I hope I have enough stuff).

    Returned both right away. The jacket's collar is just as weird in person. And overall it just felt like something a trucker would wear or something. Maybe I'm just not a thin nylon jacket kind of guy.

    The swim suit was not form fitting enough, and the material felt a little off.

    Overall, it just all felt a little... off.

    The cashmere crew I bought arrived today and... I like it.

    It fits small-to-size, but once I sized up I found the fit to be pretty great, a nice departure from Everlane's previous adventures in weird wonky cuts. Fabric is pleasantly cozy. We'll see how it holds up I s'pose

    Hmm, I saw an email about those and was considering it.

    I could use a new v-neck...thinking about a gray one.

    Everlanes v necks are pretty solid.

    How is it holding up? I've heard some opinions say it is good, some say it's shit. I'm on the fence so I'd like an opinion from someone who has used it quite a bit.

    Well, that trip was hardly the first that it has been on and it is still going strong. The straps have always felt flimsy but that hasn't been an actual problem yet. I'd be hesitant to yank the bag around with only one strap (which is probably what a baggage handler would do) and I always felt like they could use an X of stitching for additional reinforcement, but again, they are still attached just fine. Length is OK with me too. It is long enough that I can put it on my shoulder temporarily if I need both hands free, but I don't find them too long when carrying it in my hand (although I am fairly tall)


    Looking at the website, they have definitely changed them a bit (for instance, the inner pocket now seems to be made out of the outer material instead of the inner material) so I can't truly speak for the current quality--did I hear somewhere that they beefed up the straps too?

    Thanks, I'll probably get one. It was either that or a Fjallraven No. 4, which looks kind of boyish IMO. It does look like they've come out with new iterations like the reverse denim and black leather (which I might grab), or the ones with tan leather.
