Edited to Add: Two years later, and we still love to wear Everlane. I’ve written an updated Everlane review of 30+ pieces, including styling ideas and sizing tips and the staples that stock my husband’s closet right here! Don’t miss it if you’re thinking about placing an order. xo, Lindsey
I thought it would be fun to show you some of the Everlane pieces my husband has added to his closet over the past several months. We love shopping Everlane, because they choose factories with integrity. They have chosen to sell only online, so they can pass on savings on high quality basics (here’s an example). If you’ve never shopped at Everlane before, you can sign up HERE with my referral code. I know once you try it, you’ll want to tell your friends about it too. Each time you refer someone you get a $25 credit!
As easy as the Everlane site is to navigate, sometimes the styling and models throw me off a bit. The girls’ hair sometimes make shirt collars hard to see, and the guy models are all skinny. I was hesitant to order clothes for Zach, because he has a more athletic build, with broad shoulders and a “normal” guy size. So last weekend, he was super gracious and took a few photos to show how the clothes fit. Find out below which pieces we kept and which we returned.
Note: The return policy is simple and free, so we didn’t really have anything to lose by trying!
The Slim Pant
The Slim pant is slim, but not too skinny. My husband likes the narrow ankle cut and the bit of stretch, making them really comfortable all day at work. They fit true to size. He normally gets his dress pants at J.Crew, so we just went with that and it worked. This is the midnight color, and it also comes in navy + khaki, $65. Two thumbs up!
The Pocket Tee
This is what Everlane was built on, incredibly well-made $15 tees. We ordered the muted black in his normal size, large. And after it arrived, I ordered two more, because they’re truly that good. He also has the Texture Pocket Tee in navy, which is $25 and made of slub cotton.
The Pullover Hoodie Sweatshirt
My favorite part about this basic sweatshirt is the raglan sleeve seam, which keeps this sweatshirt from ever looking sloppy. The fabric is soft but a thick enough to keep its shape. I also like that it doesn’t have the hand-pocket in the front, like some hooded sweatshirts. This is the black in a large, his normal size. (There is also a zipped version.) $55
The Crew Sweatshirt
Similar to the women’s sweatshirt that I reviewed in February, the crew sweatshirt is a perfect staple for chilly weekends. The raglan sleeve seams in front and back are structured and classic. Pick from four different colors. This is the navy marled, size large, $45.
Not pictured… The Slim Fit Oxford Shirt in grey is Zach’s new favorite dress shirt. The quality is amazing for the price, $55. If you wear a lot of dress shirts, I would highly recommend ordering a couple from Everlane just to try, because dress shirts can be so pricy. (remember, free returns/exchanges, so it doesn’t hurt to try!)
What we returned…. The one Men’s item that was almost comical in its fit was the Modern Polo. We ordered a large, but the shoulders were way too narrow. I wasn’t a big fan of the mercerized cotton, because it looked a little shiny or sleek. It would be the perfect shirt for a narrow-shouldered golfer.
Wouldn’t a crisp, new tee or sweatshirt be perfect for the guys on your Christmas shopping list?
