Hi y'all! Taking some time during our short European tour (London->Paris->Amsterdam) to talk about this cardigan, which I purchased in 2017 and have yet to review! When this wool-cashmere rib v-neck cardigan first landed on the Everlane site, it sold out pretty quick. So I went ahead and tried their wool-cashmere waffle square crew (reviewed here). When the cardigan got restocked, I added it to my cart asap, and I see that currently this olive cardigan is sold out in the size I got. But before you get bummed out, let me tell you that I thought this cardigan was just meh.
What do you think?
This was my best effort to style this cardigan. And let me tell you this sweater is thick. And when I was wearing it, I got that linebacker feel (as in I felt like a padded-up football player). I think it was due to the sloping shoulders and the overall wideness of the sweater. I'm wearing a size small here and it fit true to size. I did like the cropped look but I just couldn't get over the bulkiness of it all so I sent it back.
I also didn't like the look of it when I buttoned it up.
I know a lot of people think Everlane is feeling more like fast fashion lately, especially when they churn out ill-fitting and unflattering pieces like this. And I would agree that recently Everlane has been pretty unimpressive. But like an addict, I just can't quit it. I'm like one of B.F. Skinner's rats that keep pushing the lever because of the variable interval reward (you can read about it here). Basically because I find Everlane gold every once in awhile, it's enough to keep me trying. But while I wait for my next gotta-try it Everlane piece, I'll be reviewing a bunch of other brands I've been interested in (and you guys have also expressed interest in from the survey).
In the mean time you can find my newly updated post of all my Everlane reviews here.
