Have you heard of Entireworld?
I first heard about the newish brand from Grechen. Her reviews were compelling, and I liked the fact that pieces were colorful with the kind of touches a true designer puts into their work.
What’s more, Entireworld is committed to using organic cotton and sustainable production practices, along with carefully vetted factories. While they’re not fully transparent about their factory practices, they seem to have a clear understanding of their production line.
So I headed over to the website…and immediately got a headache. I cannot for the life of me understand why they got what looks to be a teenager in the year 2001 to design their website. I quickly closed the tab and forgot about it for a couple of months.
But I really wanted to try some things out. They’re doing a limited collaboration with Nordstrom right now, which provides a much more streamlined shopping experience, but Nordstrom isn’t carrying many items from the women’s t-shirt collection. So I bit the bullet and headed back into the whirlwind.
What I Tried from Entireworld
Worn above, the Tiny Tee is soft and perfectly cropped. I am wearing a Medium – I would say Entireworld stuff runs slightly small – and the fit is good, albeit still narrower than I would like in the shoulders. I know that’s the style, but it doesn’t always suit my frame. I kept both colorways because I LOVE the colors, and I know I’ll wear them a lot in mild and warm weather
I have been looking for an easy mockneck tee for a few months and this fit the bill. Oversized and boxy, I went with a Small in this one. I like to wear it layered over a tighter-fitting thermal, almost like a sweater. The weather has been hovering the 40s here, so it’s been a good layering piece.
I ordered this in a small, which was a mistake. It fit ok in the body but was too tight in the arms, but I don’t think I could have sized up without the body – and thus, the low scoop – feeling too loose. Still, it’s a nice light to medium weight rib knit that would be particularly flattering on someone a little bustier than me.
Ribbed Scoopneck T, $20
I ordered this in a small after reading the product notes, but it was slightly too tight at the arm hole. Lesson learned – in most cases, I need a Medium. I could have sized up in this for a better fit, but the Green I ordered wasn’t really my color and I decided it was better to let it go. This was a nice, medium weight very ‘90s/early 2000s fit with no spandex, which gave it a great vintage vibe.
Would I order from Entireworld Again?
Yes, though their product line is pretty small, so I feel no need to load up on more items right now.
On the other-things-going-on-in-my-life front, I have a doctor’s appointment this afternoon to see why the heck my foot/ankle doesn’t seem to be healing. Pray for me!
