It’s been awhile since I wrote about Everlane; the last item I got from them (sent to review) was the wide leg cropped pants. I do also have an order on the way of white t-shirts. For an experiment. More on that in a moment.
Everlane Wide leg cropped pants (sent to review) | size 10
They’ve launched some new items lately, the sport rib, the modern loafer mule, slouchy chino, new relaxed silk, new cotton tee colors, and they have some interesting pieces coming soon: linen, silk, and “day” shoes.
Everlane cropped sport rib – I’m intrigued, I’ll admit.
And I know this wouldn’t be as cropped on me as on the model, so it would be a “normal” tank. No bra though…
FYI, I was not terribly impressed with the E2 collection ribbed dress, and I imagine is very similar to the new sport rib.
Everlane Modern Loafer Mule – Love these, but I’ve found Everlane’s shoes to be quite narrow and uncomfortable for my foot.
Out of all the Everlane pieces I’ve ever bought or received to review, my favorites, hands down, are my ryan tanks (I have 5) because they are truly the best slouchy, slinky tanks for layering I’ve ever tried. They’re looking rather worn lately, especially the white ones, which I wear a few times a week, and I’m desperate to find a worthy replacement. I also love Everlane’s 1st generation long sleeve linen top/tee, and the relaxed linen shirt I have from them in white (I wore it over the weekend). And, I wear Everlane’s cashmere non-stop during the cooler months. I’ve not in general been a big fan of their t-shirts, or silk, although I know that Everlane’s silk is a fan favorite.
(FOR ALL THINGS EVERLANE, my own reviews, and reader comments, please refer to the EVERLANE category)
I don’t get super-excited about new launches much anymore, because I’ve not been super-excited about the fit, styles, etc., of things I’ve bought myself or received to review lately. Everything has been rather “meh.” But I still do appreciate the efforts the company makes to be “transparent” and produce modern, simple clothing at affordable prices.
What have you tried lately that you loved? Didn’t love? What are you looking forward to?
Oh, and about the white shirts. Seemingly overnight, my beloved James Perse slub crew neck tee in white is YELLOW at the neckline and underarms. I wear that tee all the time, and have had it for a couple of years, but it stayed pretty white for a very long time until recently. Now, it’s unwearable, and gross, actually. I don’t even think I can bring myself to wear it for walking dagny or at home.
The culprit, I think, is the Meow Meow tweet deodorant in the tub, baking soda free. I usually use the deo with baking soda, in the push up tube, but had the other around and not the tube for a while, and used that for about a month. And I know we’ve discussed here before why people get yellow stains on their shirts, and I thought we’d reached the conclusion that it was chemical deodorants primarily that lead to more of that. Clearly not.
I have never had a problem with yellowing of white t-shirts. NEVER. Even when I used regular deodorant. I don’t sweat much, or never have, so I thought that was a reason. But now, I’m having to toss two of my favorite white tees because of really gross yellow stains. Maybe my body chemistry is changing, that’s probably a big factor, but I do think the deodorant was also a factor. Although I do notice staining at the neckline too – so not deodorant? Ugh.
Anyway, I am going to start fresh with some new white tees from Everlane and use the Meow Meow tweet deodorant in the tube, that I use now (which I love, and find very effective), and monitor the armpits to see how long it takes, or even if they develop stains. Before I replace my JP tees, I’m doing a trial run on less expensive tees.
