About Everlane

Everlane is a sustainable and practical apparel and accessory company for men and women.

At only 25 years old, Michael Preysman created Everlane in 2010 with the aim of providing high-quality apparel while keeping costs low. They’re known for creating sleek and minimal basics that you’ll want to wear all the time.

The brand has an almost cultish following. This is due to their sustainable practices and transparency in pricing.

Each of Everlane’s products has three prices listed:

  1. Everlane’s cost to make the item
  2. Everlane’s cost to the consumer, and
  3. The estimated retail price. This includes various traditional markups that the D2C brand avoids.

They sell their products direct to consumers (D2C) and bypass the middle man to keep costs low and quality and satisfaction high.

Everlane Review

I was drawn to Everlane after seeing the launch of their women’s swimwear line in April 2021. They offered me a chance to their review some of their most popular products.

I received the following products to review:

everlane outfit white authentic skinny jeans reviewI received my package within 2 days of ordering. The sweater is super soft and cozy and the skinny jeans fit like a glove! I am 5’5″ for height reference and ordered the ankle-length jeans.

Let’s delve into how sustainable they actually are and the pros and cons of the brand.

Everlane Pros

  • Wide variety of products for both men and women. Products include shirts, sweaters, shoes, and pants at a variety of price points.
  • High-quality products made from sustainably sourced materials.
  • Ethically sourced materials and factories.
  • Sustainable and simple packaging. My items came in a large paper envelope. The products themselves were wrapped in recycled plastic. They try to avoid using virgin plastics as much as possible and claim that only 90% of plastics used in their production process were virgin.
  • Installment payment options are available via Afterpay.
  • Free shipping on US orders over $75. They offer international shipping to most countries.
  • 30 day return policy from date of purchase. They also partner with Happy Returns so that you can return in person.
  • Their 100% Human collection donates 10% of sales to ACLU. To date, they’ve donated over $1 million!

Everlane Cons

  • Apparel runs large. We recommend going with your true size or even sizing down on certain styles. The jeans fit me perfectly. I read that the 90’s Cheeky Jeans run large, so it’s best to size down one full size.
  • Mid to higher than average pricing.
  • Low stock. Their items sell out fast. Luckily they offer a counter for low-stock products which encourages consumers to purchase ASAP.
  • A fast fashion brand. While they have production levels lower than most traditional fast fashion brands, Everlane is still not considered “slow fashion.”
  • Definite greenwashing practices. This refers to the act of brands claiming to be sustainable so that you’ll purchase their products. According to the eco-stylist, Everlane scored a 5/33 for sustainability, which is considered a failure.

How Sustainable is Everlane?

When Everlane debuted its most sustainable denim campaign, it announced partnerships with a LEED-certified factory that recycles 98% of its water, relies on alternative energy sources and repurposes any byproduct.

Since 2021, the company has also started shipping orders in 100% post-consumer recycled poly bags and launched their No New Plastic campaign and ReNew collection which offers apparel and accessories made from recycled fibers such as water bottles.

This year, the company claims to have replaced all existing yarns, fabrics, and raw materials containing virgin plastic with renewed equivalents.

Should I Buy Everlane?

I actually loved my Everlane pieces and was wondering why it took me so long to give them a try. I can see why people love them for their high-quality essentials. I find myself throwing on the jeans just to walk around the house.

While they are still considered fast fashion, I still love that they do more compared to other companies and keep costs low and quality high for consumers. Their model works, but I see many ways in which they can improve upon their sustainability practices.
