Wash it before you judge. Mine shrunk a little bit.
The article in the New York Times just said the bags are going to be $150 in stores.
This thread took a really sour turn.
Everlane should make some at-cost lollipops to cheer you all up
$5 WHOLE DOLLARS!? What an outrage...
The last few posts are reading like that series of posts about Lands End returns a while back.
Well $15 (30%) on top of the original price with no added value is definitely irksome.
uh...what? what stores? that goes against their entire ethos
"everlane creates the finest luxury accessories and essentials under $100"
i also looked at the nyt article and nowhere does it mention a price point of $150 for anything
maybe we should wait for the details on the backpack before crying out against the price rise
i'll still buy stuff from everlane
oh i noticed that the pull string on the old backpack is canvas, the new one is leather. what other changes are there i wonder
handle on the zip backpack is now leather too and the leather looks a lot nicer too. seems to be more like the weekender leather than the old backpack one which isn't as nice imo.
Single color nylon lining (waterproof I think it was said?), padded interior laptop pocket, and two water bottle holders were the only details I noticed when I checked them out. Despite all the hurty words recently, still pretty nice.
Haven't handled them -> assume no added value. I also noticed that we get to rehash the whole MIC thing that played out in the Wings+Horns thread as well. Excellent. You could always compare the price to say, a Nanamica backpack.
Everlane has a pop up store in New York called Not a Shop or something like that.
The article was in Thursdays Style section.
The original was perfect. When will I need two water bottle holders? What if I don't carry a laptop?
I will still pick one up.
I assume the design and quality on Everlane's weekender is better than Target's $25 or Topman's $40 weekenders.
Is $95 good value for the weekender? I haven't seen it in person so I don't know but the people who have seem to think it's a fair price. I do wish it was made in the US though.
All good points. Especially the last one
Well if this is the list of improvements I may get the new bag ... but what to do with the original backpack...
Just posting to say that I ordered the weekender the morning it went on sale and received it today. I've been anticipating it for a while, however, I was extremely disappointed upon seeing the "made in china" tag on the inside. For some reason I assumed it would be made in the US, like all of the other stuff I've bought from them. Wish I'd have seen this thread before now, as I probably wouldn't have purchased it. Luckily I had some credits in my account so I didn't pay the full $95 for it, but I still feel like I've been dupped. I know it was never claimed to be made in the US, but it was never made clear outside of here that it was being made in china, but I suppose that's my fault for not thoroughly researching. Honestly, the made in china bit wouldn't bother me if the price tag wasn't so close to $100.
Anyways, that's my rant, I'll likely be returning the bag, despite liking it aside from the made in china bit. Perhaps I'll just save a get a Filson duffel.
If you like the bag and you find the quality to be acceptable, why does it matter where it was made? An argument for returning it should cite quality or style issues, rather than country of origin.
Backpacks were/are also made in China, FYI.
