Everlane Review: V-Neck, Heavyweight, & Box Cut Tees


has replaced Old Navy as my go-to for basics in fun colors ever since I learned that GAP Inc. can’t manage to follow its own corporate social responsibility standards. I’ve talked about Everlane over and over again here because 1. they are committed to ethical manufacturing and 2. their price point is reasonable. With rapid expansion of offices and product offerings in the past year, their business model has proven to be what the people want, and they’ve just hired

Patagonia’s struggles

be a lesson to us all: getting huge means not knowing when you’re exploiting people in your supply chain.

I’ve tried out lots of things from


this year, but I’ve never posted a formal review, so I thought I’d review 5 items in one go.

The V-Neck Tee

<img src="https://stylewise-blog.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/c782b-img.png, it's a steal. I own the v-neck in three colors and wear them frequently. I wear my typical Small in this.

(Also, get ready to see a lot of wrinkly shirts – I’m not great at hanging up my clothes in a timely manner and I don’t currently own an iron.)

Heavyweight Tee

<img src="https://stylewise-blog.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/cca1f-img.png. Ordered a small; fits true to size.

The Short Sleeve Chambray

<img src="https://stylewise-blog.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/5f7a6-img.png. I ordered this in an Extra Small initially, but the arm holes were too small, so I sized up to my regular Small.

The Ryan Long Sleeve

The Box-Cut Tee

has that certain something that keeps me coming back. I haven’t loved everything, but I always feel like the cooler version of myself in an Everlane item. They might be branding geniuses and I’m just drinking the kool-aid, but I’m ok with that.

  1. Those sound like great picks. I'm waiting for the weather to change to assess what else I could do with in my wardrobe, but the linen tee has such a nice drape.

  2. It's starting to grow on me now!

  3. I just bought the black v neck tee, the luxe sweater mid sleeve in emerald and the long sleeve linen tee, cannot wait til they arrive. LOVE the striped top on you, may have to get that on my next wardrobe budget. Carie

  4. The u-necks dipped waaay down on me when I leaned over.

  5. Their new dresses are lovely, but not quite my style. I just bought the backpack.

  6. I have the striped shirt too and I love it as well. I actually like the boxy t-shirt but I hear you when something doesn't feel like "you" when you wear it.

  7. I love Everlane. The u-neck tee's are my favorite. I bet that chambray would look cute tucked in to a high waisted skirt. I have totally been eying striped tops, super cute!! I love the Ryan line, but hate that it's supposed to be handwash, good call on the mesh bag. I bought two box cut tees for summer and already sold one because it's too hard for me to style. I'll probably sell my other one too.I have a pair of their sandals, and they are GORGEOUS!

  8. The Ryan muscle tee is probably my favorite Everlane item! I wear it almost every weekend. I'm going to post an outfit this week with Everlane's box-cut tee, which I love to wear with jeans. Gotta love Everlane! I've been eyeing their sleeveless dress, but I'm not sure how it would look on me so I haven't bought it yet. I haven't seen it on anyone other than the models so that doesn't help too much..

    I love Everlane's V-Neck Tee, too. I pretty much wear a uniform and have three of the navy blue tees in heavy rotation. I have to agree that the boxy fit of most things is confusing and isn't the most flattering to my figure. I wish they had more color and style options, but I do love their policies. Hopefully they won't change as they grow.
