Due to popular request via Instagram Stories, today I’m sharing a review of my Everlane jeans! I got a surprisingly positive response when I asked. So I’m guessing that many of you, like me, are on the hunt for the perfect pair of jeans. I’m not sure what these will be for you, but read on to see my feel for them.
Everlane is a socially and environmentally conscious clothing company. Their clothing is made ethically in factories that are safe and pay workers fairly. They also strive for high quality, but also transparency about the actual costs to make the garment, with less markup.
It took Everlane a few years to develop a denim line that met their standards. The company found a Japanese factory (click to read about it) with sustainable practices, like recycling 98% of its water. And last September, they introduced the line to the public, after testing with three hundred people.
There are currently four fits for women – the mid-rise skinny, the high-rise skinny, a “modern boyfriend” relaxed fit, and the kick crop, which is a capri with a bit of a flare. There are two fits for men – the slim and the straight. Women’s come in deep indigo, mid blue, black, bone, and light blue wash. The men’s come in all but bone.
The jeans run $68, and the website says that comparable quality jeans would be around $145. I usually don’t spend more than $20 for jeans, so this was a bit of an investment for me. But I had seen enough about the jeans that I was curious, and I thought $68 wasn’t out of reach.
First of all, my pair is actually from Poshmark, but they were brand new at the time. I bought them in September right after they came out. My pair is a size 29 mid-rise skinny in dark indigo.
I am typically an 8 in jeans, and I would say that my pair fit true to size. They have so very little stretch to them, though, so take that into consideration if you’re between sizes.
I mean so little stretch. It takes me a little while to take them off, because I have to work my heel through the tight hem at the bottom. I would not do yoga in these jeans (not that I typically do yoga in jeans). It took a little getting used to.
However, they are soft, if a little stiff. The back pockets are large and flattering. And they are skinny but not jegging, mold-to-your-legs, shrink-wrap tight.
They are meant to hit at the ankle, but they hit me maybe 2 inches above my ankle, and I am 5’7″. I think it’s flattering as well, but if you’re looking for a full length, these may not be for you.
Also, this is such a mom thing to say – but I looove mid-rise. Without too many details, let me just say, these jeans hold me in right where I need them to.
It makes me very happy to be able to say that these jeans hold their shape all day, since I typically have a problem with sagging jeans.
Also, six months later, these jeans are not showing any tears or unraveling ends. I have a bit of wear showing in the knees from crawling around after my two littles.
But if you do end up seeing some tears, I have heard from at least one person that they were able to return and receive a new pair with no problem. (In addition, exchanges are free.)
I love these jeans and am interested in getting another pair. I love the fit and that they don’t sag. The lack of stretch took some getting used to. They aren’t necessarily the most comfortable jeans, but they are at least soft. For premium denim, the price is definitely right. And it’s uplifting to know about the company’s ethics behind the jeans.
