    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What do you guys think about this company called Everlane. Has anyone bought a shirt from them? They claim to have designer T-shirts for $15. But to buy from them you have to invite your friends to join. I've seen a couple of their shirts on ebay too though, so I'm wondering if I should buy.

    Hey guys,

    I've been running technology at Everlane since the end of January.

    You don't have to invite your friends to get in - we let in about 2000 people a day off the waiting list, but PM me your account email and I will activate your account for you.

    I'll also throw in a little something extra for the styleforum folks.

    Yeah what is the extra benefit?

    And you really need to upgrade the site so one can remove their credit card info. Pretty basic functionality and I've been emailing support who said they would take care of it. It's been weeks.

    It's just a little thing for SF guys. I have been posting here since 2009 and lurking for much longer - Styleforum helped me get into clothing in the first place and it was a big reason I got into the industry.



    Yeah you are totally right. I might have been on that email chain, but I would be happy to work with you to get something done soon. I'll send you a PM about it.

    I'm going to order a few tees to see how they fit, but when are they restocking basic white tees in medium?

    Scratch that: just saw it was up and grabbed one.

    FYI, they do shrink a tad...after like my 3rd wash. The dryer is what makes them shrink. It's not too bad because they actually stretch back out nicely...would hang dry if you are worried. My household hang drys anyways, save that extra $!

    thanks!
    looks like even the XS might be too big (just going by the shoulder measurement)

    I bought one to test. A large measures 22" at the chest, and 27" length from the bottom of the collar. No taper either. At 6'4", it's a bit too short for me.

    Got my everlane tees and backpack yesterday. For the tees I got the white vneck and the muted black pocket tee. I got the grey snap backpack. For reference I'm 6'1" 170 lbs with a 40" chest and I got a medium in the tees. Here are my thoughts:

    white vneck: It's solid. I've been looking for a white vneck that isn't see through and this fits the bill. It fits pretty well

    black pocket tee: It fits a little slimmer than the vneck. I'm considering going a size up if I get another one.

    My turn! Got mine yesterday. Everlane sadly subscribes to the philosophy that t-shirts should be tight at the chest and loose in the waist. Luckily the effect is not as pronounced as, say, American apparel, but I wish Everlane would lower the armholes or make the chest a bit larger while giving the torso more taper.

    Sleeves could be cut better. They are cut long and wide, which is the least flattering shape t-shirt sleeves can take. I love when brands cut their sleeves at an angle or, if not, at least cut them narrow to avoid that frumpy "wing" effect that happens otherwise. Granted my arms are maybe one notch removed from twig status, but still-- they could be cut better.

    But the fabric is terrific. Much better than the AA or J-Crew stuff I've worn in the past.
