My first Everlane purchase was the snap backpack. I bought it in 8th grade after my backpack from Staples lost a strap and was rendered useless. From that moment, an obsession was born. I wore an Everlane shirt on the first day of high school (the box cut tee, which I swear is one of my best purchases ever). My favorite shoes, even though they haven’t been featured much on this blog, are the Modern Babo slides- the best blend of slides and dancer’s shoes. I tell everyone I meet about Everlane. So yeah, you could say I love Everlane.
On my most recent trip to New York, I headed down to the Everlane studio in Soho. It’s on the third? fifth? some floor up from the street, and you take an elevator to get up. Also, you have to push the right button, otherwise the elevator door opens not into the studio, but into an office, and the people in there will definitly give you wierd looks. Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything.
There’s one copy of each style in the store. You can try on anything you want, then order online. Everlane also provides free two day shipping. The studio feels clean, minimalist without any pretentious or exclusive edge. It’s just good fashion. The people who work there are all incredibly knowledgeable, and kind (they didn’t even make fun of me when I tried to use a computer as a touchscreen, only to discover that it was, in face, just a normal computer. I overheard one girl who worked there helping someone with the fit of a pair of pants. The shopper concluded that the cut wasn’t quite right, and the shop girl’s response was “oh, I’ll let the designers know, so that the next run can be better”. How great is that?
Everlane’s studio fits the brand. Clean lines, nice people, and lots and lots of great clothes. Have you been to the studio? Do you want to go? Let me know in the comments! And if you haven’t checked out Everlane yet, they’re pretty great, and be sure to do so!
