If you've been wondering what's been taking me so long to write this review (since I promised it almost a month ago in this Everlane review) well we finally moved out of our house and into our Airstream! It's been a month of constant change and feeling a little homeless (well without a home base I should say). But I look forward to things settling down again and being able to write about interesting things other than Everlane reviews (though I know that's what people really want to read about).
So without further ado, onto the review! First the Everlane Street Fleece Bomber. I ordered it in a size small and it was a great fit. The fleece material is lightweight and comfortable and it's a great jacket for the spring. I really like the simple bomber style but in the end I didn't keep it because 1) we're moving and this would be another piece of clothing to move and 2) I have so many great lightweight jackets already. But now that things are settling down, I might just rebuy this jacket since it really is a great jacket.
As for the Street Fleece pants, I was a little less in love with these. So these were the first pants I ever ordered from Everlane, so I ordered both a small and medium. As you can see, I tend to be bigger in the hips and thighs (a classic pear-shaped gal), so I'm always very picky about my pants. It's a bit more difficult to find pants that fit in both the thighs and the waist, but since this is a sweatpants I figured the stretchiness would work in my favor. Well the medium size fit comfortably at the thighs but the waist was too big. The small size (which is what you see in the pictures) fit at the waist but was a bit snug around the hips and thighs.
I think the biggest negative for me about the pants was the comfort level. I guess when I think of sweatpants I think of lounging all day in front of the TV kind of pants, but these pants weren't that comfortable and not something I want to lounge in all day. First, the waist band is not that comfortable because it's a thick band of elastic (sorry I forgot to take a pic but you can kind of see it in the Everlane pics on their site), not a drawstring type of waist. The elastic band is scratchy and a bit unflattering (you definitely want to wear a top that'll cover the waistband). And second, the overall fit of the small for me (and my thick legs) was too snug and also a bit uncomfortable. And third, these pants (along with the bomber) picked up dog hair better than a lint roller (and since I live with 2 very furry fur-babies I had a heck of a time just trying to keep the fur off the clothing as I was trying it on). However, I did like how the pants came with a zip bottom so it's easy to take the pants off.
So my final verdict? The bomber was alright and that pants weren't great. As usual, reviews are done on items I've purchased for myself and are not sponsored.
