ps. this guy from the 11 show had so much swagger.

It is just ever so slightly thinner and lighter than I was expecting -- that not necessarily a bad thing as we head into spring. It's a fairly dense weave... but pretty soft and comfortable overall, with a little bit of texture that you can see on some of the more detailed product shots. It picks up some lint but not bad at all, especially in comparison to some other lint-prone darker items i've purchased recently.
As for the item itself... it's a really nice cut. The medium fits my frame great. Slightly cropped (which I know is a signature type design) which means that I will tend to wear it with tucked in shirts, so a shirt doesn't hang too far beyond it (just a personal preference). One kind of minor issue is the chest pocket has a bag that was sewn in behind it, and when the sweater is open, the pocket bag peaks out from behind the lapel. That aside, a very handsome piece which I'm happy with.
The rubberized cotton on the cap (which I think I read was a custom fabric they bought for this season) is nice as well. Nothing unexpected to report on it, but just a quality hand and feels like it will take a beating and age nicely. The "sport cap" also has a few small details which I didn't find with the standard cap (e.g. a thin sweat band material along the inside, which adds a lot of comfort). The brim was shorter than I was expecting, but it works and looks good, so no issue. I like to bend the bill slightly and it holds the form well, also. I wear my black suede cap almost daily, so this will be nice to have in rainy weather, etc.
I found myself wearing all Ervell today (aside from brown cxl Alden PTBs)
- technical knit cardigan
- 2008 standard button down (very similar to this seasons "pale blue sun faded chambray")
- FW'13 standard jeans in army/tan
I've been finding that you can create pretty nice 'work friendly' fits with some of the Ervell basics.
IMO very cropped, boxy and narrow through the shoulders. odd.
Thanks, I remember this picture from awhile ago. It seems the older models are slightly more cropped at least from the research I did, I like it though.
