I received these new Everlane tees a week or so ago and have honestly been sort of ‘meh’ about them. I ordered them because I was interested to see/feel the new “luxe” fabric (it’s lyocell) not because I NEED some new tees (like I need a hole in the head). I haven’t worn them yet, and will probably not keep the pink one, but I can see myself wearing the white one this fall, especially with a cashmere cardigan or jacket; I think it’s a very good layering piece and I appreciate the cropped length.
I like the color of the pink tee, very much, but the small is too small on me, the sleeves in particular are too short. And I wore a smoke/gray bra underneath so you could see how sheer the tee is, interestingly the pink tee seems more sheer than the white one. I love that the tees are actually cropped on me, and I find the fit of the medium to be perfect. For me, it’s just not OMG the most amazing tee ever, you know? However, if you’re looking for a slightly cropped tee with elbow-length sleeves and an easy fit, I’d encourage you to try this one; it might be just the right tee for you.
I like the feel of the fabric, but I’m not unfamiliar with lyocell (tencel is the “brand” name), and find it feels similar to rayon with perhaps a little more weight. I haven’t worn the tees yet, haven’t washed them either, so I have no idea if they’ll shrink or change shape at all. It seems as if Everlane is trying to phase out their rayon ryan line with this new one, because the ryan tees/tanks got a lot of love/hate over the years. I have always loved my ryan tanks, the tees not so much. The rayon definitely shrinks and shows it’s age over time, but I still wear the tanks and find them very versatile.
Did anyone else order/receive these new tees? What did you think? And, have you seen the new smoking loafer? I will admit, I love the look of the white pair, although I’ve not had the best luck with Everlane shoes over the years…
And also, speaking of Everlane, I put some long sleeve silk blouses (in Medium) up on SLOWRE recently >
