I need to get a denim-jacket
post #87153 of 117668
I cannot properly judge Jabonator's fit because I've been blinded by excessive blogger proclamations of denim jackets as "layering pieces".

The bottom half is slick.

My gut tells me this would be better with a longer coat.

Yeah, it's sort of the go-to menswear blog tip "Denim jacket is perfect for layering". They do that shit with blazers and ties, though. Thought I'd try it out with more SWD styling.

Bottom half is getting a lot of wear lately.

And I definitely could use some more outerwear. Been wearing this peacoat for the last 4 months.

Oh and KOY, this one's from JC, in case you were wondering. Found at 75% off last summer. Seen those types of sales from them before. The denim/wash isn't quite as cool as some other jackets, but the cut is nice, and for the price it's a nice piece.

Yeah, this is way more tasteful than with a blazer and/or tie.

It does need a longer coat though, the lengths are too close together to look natural.

Just read through two weeks of waywt, never change guys icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif Lots of fit here that look great and (fairly) inspiring and why I never get feedback either. I need my internet validation too!!

then cdhagg posted a nice fit and got a bunch of thumbs and pretty much disappeared--validation achieved.

 

remember, elisix doesn't want advice or feedback, he wants validation that his shit is good. he will argue you to death of you disagree.

 

I'm still here, still post fits occasionally, just don't have time to be regular.

 

But yeah... elisix is basically CDHagg v.2.0

If not, the knits might work pretty well since knits stretch to fit, within limits, but most things, not so great.

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.

 

Ervell Loyalist. \m/

The majority of my wardrobe is Ervell. I'm 5'9, pretty skinny/ectomorph, but not stickman skinny. I can say this about Ervell (from experience): Ervell is designed for skinny guys of medium height to tall. The look on tops and outerwear is, on SOME pieces, supposed to be slightly undersized and cropped. If you're tall and the piece is too short, size up. If it is still too short, you've got a long torso. Button-down Shirts fit TTS, but neck openings can be small.

 

I've always found that Ervell works well with aggressive styling. Some Skinhead and more militant stylistic leanings lend themselves well. The look does not work well for shorter guys or thicker guys.

not feeling that prurient. hat is too much, and don't like the jacket (PoW print?) with the red sweater.

@death shots: Definitely with the points you've said.
I'm an average 5'8 and Ervell always fits me well I'd say.
(My closet also pretty much Ervell dominant)

Maan I do wish I could pull off a more aggressive look with Ervell.
I enjoy being more casual and simple though.

Yeah. Its confident and honest yet somewhat introverted. I love how gimmick-free you can make his stuff without seeming boring. I try not to use the word utilitarian because everybody yaps that when speaking of Ervell, but its true. I've never liked melodrama or theatricality and when I first learned of his stuff years back I was pretty much hooked.

PBJ
Clarks

Indoors version w/out coat and hat Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Don't mind the cuffs, need to get a hem but a while ago I learned the hard way not to take selvage to a suit tailor. Just gonna roll with it until I give them their first wash.

@noirwash: I like the top half, but then there's the bottom half.
I feel like the denim/Clark's combo with your top half is a clear split.
I think this would benefit with some black or grey trousers as opposed to the PBJ's.

Love that Coppidge and Schneider.
