I received an email question about Everlane tees a while ago which specifically asked what I thought about the box tee, said to be better for us shorter ladies. I had never been overly tempted by the box tee (I tend to shy away from crew necks), honestly, so hadn’t tried it, but I decided to order it and give it a go.
I like the box tee very much. To recap, I didn’t like Everlane’s v-neck very much, but I do like the u-neck tees (the u-neck tee on me, with these same jeans), although not as much as my James Perse casual tee (my holy grail white tee). I am wearing a medium, and it might be a little large around my waist, but not where it sits at my hips.
It looks better half-tucked (although I’ve never quite mastered that look) than completely out, so my waist is more defined. I can see how this would be a great tee for shorties though, because it’s quite a bit shorter in length than either their v-neck or u-neck tees.
BUT, it’s pretty much exactly the same length as the James Perse casual tee on me, and still, I would recommend JP over this one if you can afford it, and you prefer a scoop neck. The JP tee drapes a bit better, doesn’t bunch up around my waist like this one does and I like the sleeves (shorter) and the neckline (lower) better.
(James Perse casual tee – this is a size 3)
If you like crew-neck tees though, and spending $15 on a white t-shirt is more your style, then I definitely recommend Everlane’s.
So, now, if you’re still reading, and you’d like to try this tee, I’m giving it away. I never wore it out, just to try on and take these photos, but it’s been washed and not-dried, so it’s nice and fresh for whoever wants it. I’ll give it to the first person WHO HASN’T TRIED EVERLANE YET who lives in the US (please!) and leaves a comment asking for it . I’ll contact you via your email address to get your info and send it out ASAP. **it’s gone! Jane got it!!**
Oh, and you bet I ordered the two new dress styles Everlane launched today (using credit I have earned), both in size medium. The tank dress won’t ship for a few days, but it seems like the long sleeve dress is ready to send out now. If the long sleeve dress works on me, I’ll be ecstatic, but I’m not exactly hopeful; I’m worried it will be too long and slim in my hips. But I’m going to try it anyway…
