Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Poutine and Prada Everlane Heavyweight Tee, the Work Pant, the slim wool pant, Ponte tube skirt

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money. All four of the pieces I’m going to talk about today I purchased second hand and two are no longer available on the Everlane website. I think the review has merit in spite of that because it speaks to the quality of Everlane garments in general. So, that said, let’s get into my third Everlane review!

Their aim was to get 10,000 participants. Currently there are 14,487 people taking part.

The Sweater Vest

The sweater vest: Poutine and Prada

The piece I wanted but didn’t buy

For about a year and a half I’ve been wanting to add a knit tank top (sweater vest? sleeveless sweater?) to my wardrobe. I’d taken note of a few I like, most of them from Aritzia.
