Everlane Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
This Everlane clothes review will now explore the good, the bad, and the potentially ugly regarding the Everlane brand. First, the good. The Better Business Bureau has given Everlane a A rating with 7 complaints solved within the last 12 months.
Customers are satisfied with quality and compliment Everlane for the variety of pieces and sizes in their collection. Buyers also raved about outstanding customer service, Everlane having been helpful and answered inquiries promptly. Lastly, customers applaud the company’s commitment to radical transparency.
One Everlane clothes review stated, “Contacted customer service regarding my order, which might be lost in transit. I got a reply within a few minutes. I got my order to resent and express shipping fees refunded. Definitely earned themselves a returning customer here!”
Another said, “They’ve got to be one of my new favorite stores to shop at. I love the quality of the clothes, especially knowing I’m getting my money’s worth.” One more for good measure: “Ordered a pair of jeans and they arrived in 5 days to the UK! The quality is fantastic and the fit is absolutely perfect! Highly recommend!”
Now onto the bad and the ugly. Customer reviews on sites such as Trustpilot give Everlane a 2/5 rating from 316 reviews, and their standing on Sitejabber is similarly poor, with 2.5/5 stars from 116 reviews.
Unlike the customer reviews we looked at previously, these buyers were highly disappointed with customer service. Some customers went so far as to claim that their customer service is non-existent.
On these sites, there are many negative Everlane reviews about snail-like shipping, with customers waiting weeks or months for orders to arrive. There have also been complaints regarding quality compared to the price and ill-fitting clothing.
Are Everlane Clothes Worth It?
We think Everlane caters to a specific aesthetic, which is minimalist, practical, and simplistic. Everlane was created to meet a need for daily, versatile garments that do not have a specific function (rather, they serve many functions).
This Everlane clothes review truly appreciates the model diversity showcased on the Everlane site. The company offers an option to view specific clothing items on different size models.
Additionally, their commitment to radical transparency, ethical factories, and ethically sourced materials is admirable. It should be applauded in this age of fast-fashion.
This Everlane clothes review acknowledges the negative reviews swirling around Everlane, and they are hard to ignore. The positive customer experiences outweigh the negative, so we think Everlane clothing is worth the buy for those seeking a minimalist and ethical clothing brand.
