GREAT news: I’ve found the perfect t-shirt.
That’s a bold claim, but after owning a couple of these for over a year now, feel pretty confident about that statement. So if you’re looking to up your tee game, let’s get to it!
Are you familiar with Everlane? I’ve mentioned the company before–specifically the tees, too. They’ve amassed quite the fan base and for good reason. While the overall aesthetic and some of the styles can be a little too hipster for my everyday look, there’s no question that they make really good basics.
When it comes to t-shirts, I feel like I’ve tried them all. Seriously. My biggest issue is that they’re either too sheer, cling at my armpits or are cut weirdly in that area, are too tight, or too expensive. Oddly enough, I like to wear the Gap ones under sweaters in the winter, but don’t like wearing them on their own. I know, that seems like a lot of problems to have with cotton t-shirts. It’s just hard, okay?
So back to Everlane…
The Cotton U-Neck style is my favorite because it’s looser around the arms, which is a priority for me. Like I said, HUGE pet peeve when things are tight in the shoulder/armpit area. Does that bother anyone else? This shirt is a little looser all around, and the length is also a bit shorter than the v-neck style. The v-neck is good if you’re looking for something a little more snug. I’m wearing a medium here and have this style in both a medium and small, but prefer the latter for–you guessed it– the extra space around the arm area.
All the basic tees come in a slew of colors, so it’s easy to stock up or fill in the gaps in your wardrobe accordingly. If you’re new to the company, be sure to check out their transparency model–it’s really unique and interesting, and is certainly part of why I keep coming back!
PS: Everlane is having one of their “sales” again–it’s a really cool concept where you can choose between three prices and essentially pay what you want for certain items. I picked up this silk tank, this chunky wool scarf (case in point for shopping off -season!), and this basic white tank. Just scroll through all the women’s and men’s sections to see everything that’s marked “choose your price”!
