I got a devon singlette tank ii in tidal from Splits59 a couple of weeks ago and loved the new design of the devon. When the new everest color came out, it was an immediate must-have for me. Everest is a very pretty shade of green, a jewel tone just shy of a true emerald. I also am tempted by camellia, a newly released neon coral-red, but decided to hold off on it for now. Here’s a quick review + pics of everest.
The everest devon fits just like my other devons. It’s a loose-fitting tank, so you can take whatever size you normally take in streetwear. If in doubt, I think going for the larger of two sizes is better, since I think this tank looks best worn loosely rather than too tight. I am normally an XXS in tops (lululemon 2), and S59’s XS works well for me.
One thing worth noting is that the peached poly fabric used in these tanks is pretty delicate. If you’re not careful, it will snag.
As I mentioned above, everest is a rich green hue. I initially thought it would be like lululemon’s menthol, but that was pretty misguided. It’s much richer, not icy like menthol:
This comparison shows the emerald devon tank (center) versus my blue tropics speed shorts (left), menthol speed shorts (right), a menthol headband (bottom), and YogaSmoga crops verdi (top). Interestingly, YS verdi is definitely the closest. Note that the pics of me wearing the tank are a slightly better depiction of the true color versus this color comparison pic.
Overall, I really love this one, it’s a definite keeper! The color will go well with a lot of what I wear. In these photos, I’m wearing it with my (lululemon) black grape rebel runners, which is really a gorgeous combo. It also looks gorgeous with inky floral, spring has sprung, bruised berry, and harbor blue.
