Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer

Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer

Without much fanfare or press, Everlane extended their size range to 16 on most pieces and up to a 35 waist on several styles of denim. I never understand why brands don't hype up extended sizes, especially when it's a brand that people have been begging for years to do it. I've reviewed Everlane Denim for a size 14, and have worn several Everlane pieces such as the Everlane cashmere crew and cashmere lantern sleeve sweater and the Japanese GoWeave Short Wrap Dress. I hadn't tried any jackets or blazers from Everlane and asked if they would send me their Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer to review. How is the fit, especially in the arms, shoulders, and bust for a petite curvy body?

The Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer is purposefully oversized, made from 62% recycled wool and 38% recycled nylon. The nylon makes the fabric softer and has a hint of stretch. The body is lined in a mix of 57% cupro and 33% cotton; the sleeves lined in 100% polyester. It has a double-breasted front and four working buttons on each cuff, two front flap pockets, a welted breast pocket, and an interior chest pocket. There is no back vent. The blazer is available in two colors up to size 16; there are no petite, short, long, or tall options. This blazer retails for $180.

I am wearing a 14 in this blazer, my usual size in most brands. I think it was the right choice; a smaller size would be too snug across the back and in the shoulders. I would benefit from a petite offering; the sleeves are too long but I like pushing up my blazer sleeves anyway. The coat is a bit long, but it goes with the oversized boxy trend of this season and once the season ends, will make this a nice fall topper/lightweight coat alternative.

This blazer is exactly on trend this season; almost every retailer is carrying a variation of the oversized glen plaid or tweed blazer. I have ordered a few sticking under $200 and I find most are polyester blends, lighter in weight, and most are too snug on my arms to wear anything other than a thin t-shirt. I am pleased to find this blazer from Everlane roomy enough that I could wear a merino or cashmere turtleneck under it without feeling like the Michelin Man. However, because it is roomier and a heavier fabric, it does have a boxier shape. I am okay with that, I wanted the look of a professor's blazer thrown over more fitted pieces. If this is the effect you're looking for, this is a good choice at a reasonable pricepoint for the fabric and construction.

Since I was reviewing the Everlane Oversized Double-Breasted Blazer, I decided to style it with more Everlane. I reviewed these jeans before in this Everlane denim review post, and this post where I show a lot of views of the jeans on my body. I have washed and dried these jeans dozens of times. It has made the denim a bit thinner and the fit not as perfect, but these jeans have not been babied. If I had kept them out of the dryer they likely would still fit the same as when I first got them. The t-shirt is... fine. It is a very square fit, the neckline is quite utilitarian, and in general, this feels like something I could get in a plastic package from the men's undershirt department at Target. I wonder if I would find it as miraculous as the reviews if I was a slim and small-busted woman. I know many who love these shirts, but none of them have my figure. One perk is that this t-shirt didn't shrink after getting bleached on hot and thrown in the dryer.

As always, I'm happy to answer any questions honestly about the clothing I wear - my size, how it laundered, the quality... whether or not it is gifted by the brand. While I did receive the t-shirt, jeans, and blazer free from Everlane, I was not paid to write this review nor did I have to guarantee coverage of the items in exchange for receiving them.
