I still remember a time before they had organic everything, but the Everlane cotton crew is certified organic, from seed to shirt. In fact, most of Everlane’s core collection has the Global Organic Standard (GOTS) certification, which takes over a year to account for every step of production.
Before we start, you can learn more about the brand in my comprehensive Everlane review which includes all the individual pieces from Everlane that I’ve had the chance to check out over the years.
And now let’s get into this Everlane Organic Cotton Crew Review.
The Organic Cotton Crew | Uniform
The basic pique polo is a classic piece that’s more elevated than a basic t-shirt, while still keeping things casual. The heather grey colorway is one of my favorites for its versatility.
Everlane Organic Cotton Crew: How Does It Feel & Fit?
Everlane is one of my favorite brands right now. Everything from the minimal style, variety of colors and perfectly fitting basics, off the rack — there aren’t many other brands currently doing it at Everlane’s level IMO. Not to mention the relatively affordable prices and transparency.
Now let’s take a look at the fit of the Everlane Organic Cotton t-shirt.
Everlane Organic Cotton T-Shirt
The Everlane Organic Cotton t-shirt is the latest addition to their popular Uniform Collection. They’ve been wanting to go organic for a while and I’m glad that they’ve finally done it with their tees. Any progress is good progress and so it’s okay to me that they took their time with it.
In terms of the fit, the shirts drape cleanly and aren’t too loose or too tight. I appreciate that they carry XS which is always a good thing for the shorter gents out there. The shoulders hit right where they should and the sleeve length is right around mid-bicep.
For colors, I picked up Sienna along with Sage, two colors that are different from the typical white, black, navy and gray, but still subtle. In fact, none of Everlane’s colors are over the top, they’re a more muted color palette than some trendier brands. They do not carry these colors any longer, but you can find 6 highly versatile options, currently.
The organic shirts have a washed look to them. I’d say quality-wise it’s similar to UNIQLO’s Supima tees, maybe slightly higher quality, but not quite on the level of ASKET, Banana Republic or Mott & Bow. You can also opt for an organic cotton pocket tee as well.
