post #87136 of 117670

Thanks everyone!
Yeah, Ervell's pieces do fit to a certain body type/aesthetic.
Which is why I'm so interested in them/wear a whole lot of it.

It's suited for a thin frame / slim and cropped style, and like LAGuy says, the knits and such overall are pretty universally good fits.
When it does come to some of the outerwear/shirting sizing however, that's when it starts to stray away and be a bit different.
From me experience though, I think I personally fit fairly well with what he has to offer!
Also Mikey I think you would also fit it pretty well! His knits are really great.

Hrmm yeah I might consider tapering and hemming those Diors (or just get another pair and leave these be). Take 1" - 1.5" off or so and taper the opening to 6.75" starting above the knee?
post #87138 of 117670
I don't know dude, it looks a size or two too big all around. Diors are vanity sized, so if you get them TTS it just doesn't look right.

That pair is a size 30 and it does run a bit loose. I've had some washes in 29 that were wayyy tight. 28 was impossible. Maybe I'm too self conscious about the tight jawnz. shog[1].gif

from the looks of it, you should easily be able to size down at least 1? aside from jeans, I do like the fits though

fishbones, how tall are you? Like 5'9ish? Ervell always looks great on you and it's tempting to pick up a few pieces even though it's so different from what I typically wear.

In order to salvage them, go to a tailor and say you want a hem and taper.

Usually the hemming part is easy as they pin the bottom for you to see and if you find agreeable, they will mark it as so. I like to leave a little bit of fabric for +/- error, so afterwards, ask them to measure what the new inseam would be. If it matches up with what you typically like, say 33" (you seem tall) then say 33.5" (or just reference that you want it no more than 33" inseam, or less). Competent tailor should get the picture.

My experience with tapering is that if the tailor is good, they will tell you whether or not 18cm, 19cm; etc. is good. FWIW I think 18cm for most folks here is good starting point. You can either go up to 19cm, which is your standard 7.5" taper, or down to 17cm (around 6.75"). One thing I like to think about is if I go with 19cm, I may like the hem to have not as much break because the tapering IMO is not as gradual and will end up like what you currently have. 18cm on the other hand you can leave the inseam a bit longer as it will stack better. I think here it will depend on the wearer and experience with the tailor as finding a sweet spot in terms of the hem and taper balance will give off the best "stacked" look.

I usually like my inseams to be about 33 or 32.5 with 18cm, or 7.25". Every now and then 19cm is cool too.

Regarding sizing down, I personally like the top block / seat area to have a little bit more room. So, sizing down in your case, if you find it comfortable is not necessary. The point is, a hem and taper will do wonders to the fit.

edit:
Another note is that you may realize that one side of your hip sits higher up rendering once part of your leg to have a shorter inseam. This will be apparent if you ever got some dress trousers hemmed. You should let the tailor know this or at the very least check if both inseams are balanced, and to make the respective corrections when hemming the pants if not.

I think you'd rock them well. They're so nice, but you have to be the right kind of skinny, apparently. Here's me contemplating the buttoned-up look.

My Ervell sweatshirt definitely has a weird fit to it. I'm about 6' and ~165-170 lbs. and I've never before had a problem with tops being too short. I had to size up on it though since the medium I tried on was so incredibly short—both in the body and in the sleeves. The large fits me alright, though I'd be happier if it were still even longer in the body. Fits a bit looser throughout the midsection, but since it's a sweatshirt I don't really mind a "relaxed" look. I'd like to check out some of his other stuff (in particular the outerwear), but now that I've seen how it fits I'm worried about whether or not it's made for my tall lanky ass.

Thanks for the info noob. Will have to hunt down some stockists before June. Anyone know if he keeps length ~relatively the same regardless of size? I always end up with cropped shirts and sweaters because my height is so disproportionate from my weight.

This is key for all the newbies to note. It doesn't matter how loose the top block is, as long is it tapers nicely it will look good. There is no sense in sizing down for obscene thigh huggage.

I'm 5'8!

Big thanks man, and I'd say to check out the measurements and some people's testimonies on the pieces you want.

Ervell's stuff is definitely very versatile.

Carrot fit doesn't work well if you have too big of a waist

19 cm as the default
