post #87151 of 117677
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

I need to get a denim-jacket

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

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.

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.
