In honor of the new Everlane cashmere tunic (I WANT), I thought I’d pull out my Everlane cashmere cardigan for a run around – and I wanted to do black & blue today, I also wanted to do oversized and so-comfortable-it-hardly-feels-like-I’m-wearing-anything. Done! 🙂
I may have given Everlane a bad rap recently when I mentioned my disappointment in the Ryan tee I have. I’m still not a huge fan of the tee (it slides off my shoulders, and is a weird length on me), but I do love the Ryan tanks. I have a white one and a black one, and they’re really great for layering. I wish they were longer so I could wear them comfortably with leggings, but even the size large isn’t long enough for that. I do LOVE the drape and the feel of the material though, and appreciate that the straps are wide enough to cover my bra straps AND that they stay on my shoulders.
I haven’t worn the cashmere pieces I have much (this cardigan and a basic crew neck) since I got them late in the season earlier this year, and it was much too warm for them at that point. They’re very basic, and I do wish the cardigan was a bit longer – again, to wear with leggings – but I did get a size medium, so perhaps a large would work better. I do like that it’s slouchy without being too oversized though; you can’t have everything!! Anyway, since I haven’t worn the cashmere a lot, I can’t really speak to the longevity or quality over time, but I quite appreciate the price…so I do recommend them. They’re not Inhabit NY, but for 1/3 the price, I’ll take it for basics.
Overall, I still have high regard for Everlane; I appreciate their stand on transparency, and that most items are made in the US, or at least in factories they visit and inspect for working standards. The prices are fair, you can’t beat their basic tees for $15 (I have lots of those), and I’ve found their customer service to be very good. Not everything is perfect, but they generally acknowledge when an item needs improvement, and try and fix it. I look forward to continuing to watch their evolution.
I know a lot of you guys have Everlane pieces, do you still like them? What have you tried?
