post #87121 of 117668
when i was new here i looked into it but heard about the weird fit so I've kind of avoided it because I don't really have a chance to try it on in person. it's always on my radar though and there are definitely some ervell pieces I'd love to own. It's a little more luxe/less workwear than most of my clothes, but could definitely work. his blazers always look really really cool on the runway. same with knits. and shirts. and everything.

Fit on some of his stuff is bizarre for sure, but if you get a chance to try some out in person, or try out from a site with a good return policy you should give it a shot

Those Diors look a size too big. It's fine in the first fit since the cardigan is oversized, but then your shoes look too sleek. In the second fit, the blazer is too structured with the shoulders and shawl collar, so that baggy jeans don't work at all.

Yeah the blazer pic was a tester (went with trousers / didn't have other jeans with me). I didn't really size down on that pair of Diors, but I definitely could.

nice. Just make the square a puff not a fold and you're good. it's too square like that

a tiny nit pick is that i'd prefer not to be able to see the belt, so probaby get a longer tee. Could afford a lower neckline on it too, but it still looks good as is. maybe like an inch off those jeans too? just a touch too much stacking. black jeans would be easier here I think. the distressed gray is a little bit hard to reconcile with the dinner jacket, but it's not off by much.

Didn't bring any limit T's with me shog[1].gif Will give it another shot with different jeans (probably black).

i dont think that is entirely true. i have a few of their flanel wool pants, and they are very solid. i also have 2 merino wool v neck sweaters that i think are quite good, and a decent gingham button down too. i hav some other stuff that i no longer wear because its total crap, but not all their stuff is bad, imo.

i think this is what nil meant, so maybe this is repetitive, but i think blazer in top pic is way better and looks way more in synch with the rest of the look. i like it a lot. the bottom one, looks like an MC formal jacket on a SWD fit, kind of off imo.

cyc wid it, your bathroom is amazing.  It looks like a fancy vegas hotel bathroom (unless of course that's exactly where you are)

If that was my bathroom I'd never leave (5) - was at a hotel in SF.

Most of Ervell's stuff fits pretty well if you aren't super tall or have odd proportions. There's really only a few items (collegiate jacket, etc) that fit really weird or are particularly hard to pull off.

ervell is really narrow in the shoulders frown.gif and kind of a blousy at the waist. works best for people who don't have a huge drop and are just kind of narrow/thin all around. also not that tall.

Ervell designs for his own body type, which is "nerdy". I have had a few conversations with stockists and fashion friends of his. Essentially, if you are skinny, and have a sort of pencil neck, it will work great for you. If not, the knits might work pretty well since knits stretch to fit, within limits, but most things, not so great.

Or you can just get them tapered / hemmed. The seat is probably comfortable enough to leave as is, and I know there are tons of capable tailors in the Bay Area. Taper + hem would look sweet.

also lol about Ervell fit, sounds like it was designed for me shog[1].gif

Sounds like I should never, ever purchase anything Ervell. shog[1].gif

One way, if you don't want to go with chunkier footwear is to wear lighter colored footwear, which will have the same effect. Right now, the shoes looked swamped by the jeans.

With the second look, I would ditch the pocket square, which just looks way too fussy with this type of outfit. With your jeans, you either need a much slimmer jean, or you need to fully commit, and wear jeans or trousers with a very full silhouette. This halfway thing is not working well. If you had some really chunky kicks, it might, but even then, really baggy jeans would be better.
