Yeah the increased branding looks really weird, not very Ervell like.

A lot of the standard pants from FW14 still hung around in most size runs at deep discount b.c of that branding I'm willing to bet. I'm not sure what thought process went into the decision to start branding certain clothing, but I don't think it was a wise choice considering the grossgrain tag was nice and subtle branding already that didn't distract or detract from the garment. The pants always had the style and season distinction on the inside tags which I thought was great, but these new and fairly sizable tags on pants and roman numeral print on shirts is head scratching. Its creeping into mall brand clothing branding. What's next, big dragon and jockeys patches? I wonder if having a studio above the Opening Ceremony Store with their wild clothes selection has started to effect his subconscience and and started to creep into his own line. For me it narrows down my selections at least so helps my wallet I guess.

BTW What's the verdict on this season's collegiate jacket?

i understand, but usually those sentiments are based off of the runway stuff and are usually dismissed once the webstore stock hits. like a lot of people have mentioned already the embroidery branding and the suede Ervell patches are kinda off-putting...

only thing i'm gunning for at this point is the indigo sakura print (which i'm not even sure will appear) and maybe some pants.

I'm going to be taking my seam ripper to one of the patches on my FW13 standard pants. Will let you guys know how it plays out.

I really like this season. I think it is great and if I could, I'd purchase many things.

Will be looking for your report as I had the same thing on the mind. I was just wondering how it would look since ut seems like a lot of stitching.

Is the FW12 and FW13 grey mélange identical in color? The FW13 seems to be a lighter grey, but I can't tell from stock photos.

I bought both the collegiate jacket and the field coat in moss. The collegiate is awesome. Surprised no one has bought/mentioned it yet. The material reminds me of a wool suit. The fit is how u want it I guess. I tried on a S and M. The S fit me slim. The M was slouchier, which I think looks a lot better.

The field coat in moss is excellent as well. The brushed cotton almost makes it feel more like moleskin. I have two spring field coats in size S that have a fitted look, but I opted for the M in the winter version because of the lining.

I also ordered the selvedge denim on Wed, but have yet to receive a tracking number. I also emailed the support email but had no response. Has anyone else had problems with the webstore this week?

Here's the Ervell patch taken off a pair of moss brushed cotton pants. Barely noticeable, and I'm sure it'll disappear even more with a wash or two to ease the fabric back into shape from the patch stitching. The hardest part was the left/right side...since there's a black set of straight stitches down those sides, in addition to the visible zigzag stitches.

Haha, funny how some of the item descriptions (e.g. baseball shirt ) include this: 

 

 

Exterior label with easily removable zig-zag overlock stitch at bottom.

 

 

Seem like they don't have much faith in the increased branding for this season, either.

S/S is generally pretty weak, but one piece that is consistently better in S/S than F/W is the pocket sweater. I find the stitching much more interesting, and the cotton fabric isn't as itchy as the alpaca too. I've basically started buying S/S pocket sweaters only...

Good to hear, the brown one looks great.

I agree with you in that I generally prefer FW over SS, but I personally think that Ervell is one of those designers that does SS exceptionally well. For example, 3 of my 4 favorite Ervell collections are SS (SS09, FW09, SS10, SS11).

 

Also, is no one else as excited about the prints from this season as I am?? Especially that sakura blossom print (looks incredible on the silk short-sleeve Mid-Century Shirt)…

I'd agree somewhat with the first part - pretty much every brand does F/W better than S/S. I strongly disagree about the pocket sweater though. While the cotton is nicer than it's often given credit for it's still not as nice as the baby alpaca especially considering that they're priced the same. Personally I've never found the alpaca to be even the slightest bit itchy, but I realize everyone's sensitivity to that varies.
post #1920 of 2391
Yeah, I've owned and worn the alpaca version. It definitely is a nice sweater, but the itchiness does it for me. I'm just cursed in that regard (even some Schneider scarves are too itchy for me frown.gif)

keanswon - I agree that Ervell SS has been pretty good in the past. My favorite Ervell piece is actually the Harrington jacket from SS09, but I feel like this season is weaker than most. Nothing really to get excited over. Good point on the Sakura Blossom print - I think that'd look really good on a loose fit button down...
