Why I Keep Coming Back to Everlane

I don't think Everlane is the model of sustainability. I have questions about the specific wage structure at their factories (though even if I had this information, I'm not sure I would know how to measure it).

But I keep coming back to Everlane for a few reasons...
  1. Quality: Everything I've purchased from Everlane, with the exception of a long sleeve shirt purchased last spring (the bottom hem unraveled), has been of exceptional quality. I've owned a few t-shirts for 3+ years and they're still going strong. Considering they're lightweight, knit cotton, that's incredible. 
  2. Fit: Tops and jackets are cut well for my frame, and the sleeves are always long enough. (I don't always fare so well with their pants or shoes, however.)
  3. Price Point: Right there in my comfort level without being a throwaway purchase.
  4. Example: This is the only company besides Patagonia that I've seen scale to a high level while continuing to be transparent about their production and corporate policies. They're also receptive to questions and have continued to work toward great sustainability, exemplified by their new denim collection.
Everlane sent me a press sample of their $100 Cashmere in Donegal and I purchased their swing trench to deal with this transitional fall weather. Overall, I'm very happy with the fit and quality for the price. In fact, the "perfectionist shopper" in me doesn't feel a need to shop for something different. These are just what I wanted.

For reference, my proportions are 34A-28-39, I'm 5'7", and I typically wear a small in tops and a 6 in pants.

Swing Trench in Sage

Size Purchased: S
Grade: A

I wasn't sure I was into the swingy-ness of this trench at first, but it's actually very flattering on. The fit is great for me. I typically wear a small in Everlane and this one feels true to size. The sleeves are long enough and the shoulders aren't too tight. The fabric is medium weight, which makes it a great overcoat for fall and light winter weather.

Cashmere Crew in Frost Donegal

Size Purchased: S
Grade: A

I have last season's bright pink version of this sweater already, so I was sure this one would fit just as well. I really like that the ribbed wrists are double length. It makes the whole arm look more streamlined and keeps the chill out. The frost donegal reads light gray with black flecks and feels sophisticated and timeless. The length is perfect for my relatively long arms and torso. I'm wearing this right now and it's a nice, light but warm layer for chilly evenings.

These are two of the best items I've purchased from Everlane, and ones that I think will stand the test of time in terms of style and quality.
