|Rounded Collar Silk in Blush|
First, let me give you the pitch. Everlane is a brand offering luxury essentials, responsibly sourced and with a focus on transparency. They're open about how they source their factories (you can find factory tours on the website), what everything costs to make, and what the markup is on each item. Originally they began with simple mens ties, but they now offer everything from leather bags and sandals made in Italy to simple T's and more, with a focus on the most luxurious knits and silks you've ever worn.

Over a year later I can attest to the fact that I still love my Everlane silk shirt, and have purchased it in an additional colour (blush). I'm very careful about wearing them, always changing when I get home to avoid puppy nails and cat hair so they are a little higher maintenance than the rest of my wardrobe, but I love having them. Everlanes newest fall collection of round collar silk shirts don't include the button placket, which is unfortunate as that detail prevented boob gape for me. I'm currently obsessing over the new silk 'pocket' style so it might be time to buy another.

|Nick in an Everlane V-Neck|
By biggest Everlane regret has to be the purchase of the Box Cut button down shirt. I thought, how can I go wrong with a white button down? But the fit was awful on me. I purchased in large and could have easily gone down to a medium. It isn't just a box cut on me, but swallows me whole. Very unflattering.

The mustard French Terry (part of my first purchase) I wore many times and got a lot of use out of, but it never fit quite right either. I purchased it in Large and it was a little too tight, almost the same fit as the T-shirts. Interestingly both the French Terry and the T-shirts are made in an LA factory, and both are tight on me in an L. Not sure if this is a coincidence. ;)
|Everlane Seed Stitch U-Neck|
Lately, my biggest Everlane success has been with the Seed Stitch sweaters. I own two, the Seed Stitch U-Neck, and the Seed Stitch Raglan. My favorite is the Raglan, as I find I need to wear a tank top or other layering shirt with the U-Neck to make the neckline work (and admittedly I find the Birch colour to be a little bit of a wash).
The Raglan is my most recent purchase and it is literally the softest thing I have ever felt. It's amazing, warm but it breaths so it's perfect for fall. I purchased it in Pine and it goes with everything and is very flattering. The cut on these I also find flattering. I purchased both in Large and they don't hug too tightly, instead draping perfectly. They have a slit at the hips along the hem and the back drapes a little longer than the front. I love them. Perhaps that is the greatest difference between the cut of the Seed Stitch and the French Terry, the French Terry having a banded bottom that emphasized my flaws in the middle.
For reference, I'm a standard size large or 14 on the bottom, 12 on top. I have a 32 waist, 42 hips, am 5'4" and wear a 36D.
