Brand I like: Entireworld

26

Entireworld, which is the brainchild of former Band of Outsiders designer Scott Sternberg, has been on my radar for a little while—as purveyors of edgy-preppy classic pieces that are reasonably priced. But it wasn’t until my mother directed me to this New York Times article, about Entireworld’s explosion in sales during the pandemic—when most the apparel business has taken a nosedive—that I decided to check out their wares. And I’m so glad I did. Entireworld’s pieces, like this rugby shirt (which comes in more than one colorway, as do pretty much all of the brand’s pieces) is well-cut for a more feminine silhouette, unlike more straightforwardly preppy clothes, which can be boxy and shapeless.

This V-neck cotton sweater is super, super soft, comes in a few colors, and rings in under $100.

Entireworld is perhaps best-known for their sweats, which are super-cozy and suitable as streetwear (especially now); I like these black sweatpants, which sell out fast, so if they have your size and you’re at all interested, do not delay.

I dig the drop shoulder on this cream-colored sweatshirt.

These cropped corduroys come in a multitude of hues, but I’m really digging this dusty pink.

I am in love with this indigo cotton shirt, and I also like this striped iteration.

This bright tote says “York” on the flip side. They’ve got one for Los Angeles too.

This tiny striped tee is so tomboy sexy. I am also tempted by this long-sleeved one.

    I agree, Kim – I picked up on the hostility too.

    Just ignore the post, if it doesn’t appeal to you, but Kim also has readers who do take a size ten or below.

    It’s funny that they call themselves Entireworls but have a limited size range. I’m tired of new lines being introduced and having no size diversity. They aren’t bringing anything new to the game by making tees and sweats for sizes that already have one million variations of tees and sweats available to them because everyone already makes tees and sweats in those sizes.

    I’ve never heard of this brand – looks great! The indigo cotton shirt, in particular.

    I like the idea of Entireworld, but the website is SO ANNOYING. It makes noises! And you can see the sizing for some things and not others … I do like the v-neck sweater.

    I love the pink cords, but their website was ridiculously difficult to navigate.

      Also, the pink cords only go up to a size 10. Ridiculous.

    On the other hand, recycled poly. Nice.

      Oh dear, you-all are right though … where is the rear view on the pants? Who would ever buy pants without seeing the back? That seems more important than knowing someone else is allegedly looking at them. On the third hand, that is jobs for coders I guess.

        Right? I was just on JCrew and about half the things I looked at had only ONE photo: of the front of the garment. No back view, no model view so you could at least have a SENSE of what it might look like on a human body. And a lot of it was final sale – so, no thanks.

        You have to tap on the product you want to view and then scroll left to see other views. Hope that helps!

          Thanks!! I kind of poked around but I don’t know if I scrolled left. I’ll have to try that.

    I,too checked out this brand after reading the New York Times article. Am I missing something? I didn’t see anything special; not bad, but nothing compelling. Also I think 88$ for a plain sweatshirt is ridiculous.

    Cute stuff, but the cheesy, annoying website is a dealbreaker for me.

    The article was really interesting and pretty damning about how the fashion industry operates. I’ve looked at Entireworld for awhile now but I’ve never purchased – in part due to the consumer UNfriendly nature of the website.

    I lurved BOO and still wear a few of their sweaters that I found on eBay. Back in the day, they were Thom Brown for women.

    I can understand why so many of you had a tough time with this post, and the fact that the brand’s sizes only go up to 10. I need to do a better job at including extended sizes in posts, which I’ve gotten away from lately. But there is an ugliness in some of these comments that is rare for this blog. This makes me unhappy, and makes me wonder why I make the effort to bring GOACA to you in the first place. I am—and have always been—open to criticism. But I won’t abide this level of hostility. I know we’re all under extreme pressure, with no end in sight. But please try to keep it polite, ladies.

      I certainly didn’t mean to criticize your choice to feature this brand, Kim, and I don’t feel a need for everything you feature to offer extended sizes, but size 10 as a maximum does seem purposefully exclusive, and that rubs me the wrong way. On the other hand, I reread all of the comments, and at the risk of alienating you, honestly I don’t see any of them as personally hostile or ugly, so I’m a bit puzzled at your reaction.

      Kim, if it helps, I read the critiques of the sizing (and website) as critiques of Entireworld as a company, not of your post. Mine certainly were. If they came across otherwise, I sincerely apologize.

        That was my intent and I apologize that it came across as a critique of your site. I will be more conscientious of what I write going forward.

        Yes, ditto what Heather said … I never get mad at you, Kim! You have opened my eyes to so many things I wouldn’t have looked at before. I do complain about the size thing a lot – but again, this is not your fault, it is the fashion world’s fault.

      It should go without saying that this is your site, Kim, and if someone is unhappy with it they can move on. No one is entitled to see anything on this site, other than your vision — which is why we came here to begin with.
