The bottom half is slick.
My gut tells me this would be better with a longer coat.
this is cdhagg all over again. he used to get a ton of crap, and he would post his fits and someone else's too and be all like, "wtf, we the same"
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
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.
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.
