I finally had a chance to try a few new Everlane pieces I’ve had my eye on for a while — including some clothes for Mike. As you likely already know, Everlane does everyday wardrobe basics really well (they’re some of our team’s most-worn pieces), and their menswear stuff is no exception. We both fell in love with Everlane’s parkas (seriously warm and the colors are gorgeous), and — in case you, too, were wondering: the Everlane ‘Cloud’ sweaters are unbelievably soft.
My Favorite Everlane Clothes For A Long Winter
There are three specific things I’d like to talk about: One, Everlane’s cloud fabric is aptly named AND made from 100% natural fibers. Two, Everlane’s men’s section is ON FIRE, which brings me to…Three, Everlane 100% recycled parkas. Both Mike and I love these, which should come as no surprise because Linzi has been recommending them for years. (Clearly I should’ve listened to Linz. #storyofmylife)
1. The Everlane Cloud Cable Cardigan
I wanted to try one of the ‘cloud’ sweaters because — unlike other retailers who tout a cloud-like softness — Everlane’s aren’t made from acrylic. Instead, Everlane’s cloud sweaters are made from all-natural fibers: a blend of merino wool, pima cotton, and alpaca.
There’s an oversized cloud turtleneck, also, that would work great with leggings…but I went with the cardigan for the cropped, boxy shape. I love that this piece shows off a waist without needed to be tucked (or half-tucked).
2. Everlane Menswear (Especially The Waffle-Knit Hoodie & Jeans)
Mike is obsessed with the Everlane waffle knit hoodie. It’s not as thick as a sweatshirt, but not as thin as a tee, either. For a guy who gets hot easily, it’s perfect. I might actually get him one in another color (or maybe a waffle-knit crew).
He also LOVES Everlane’s jeans — they’re called, officially, The Slim 4-Way Stretch Organic Jean. They fit slimmer than whatever else Mike typically wears, so he was pretty shocked by how comfortable they are. He’s been wearing them constantly.
I’ve been really impressed with Everlane’s guys’ collection this winter. Basics, sure, but either perfectly executed, or they have enough of an interesting twist to stand out. Here’s what we’re considering…
3. The Everlane ReNew Puffer (For Women) & ReNew Parka (For Men)
So. These jackets are GREAT. Not only are they made from 100% polyester, but they’re insanely warm. The styling has a slight military vibe, but the colors are rich and gorgeous — much better in person than on the website. (The photos I have here are much more true-to-color).
Both parkas can be cinched, but the guy’s version is a little shorter, the women’s a little slimmer. I don’t typically walk 6 ft. behind my husband (ha!) but it was effective for showing the subtle differences in the two parkas.
Still…it bugs me. Next time he can follow me across the street. 🙂
