is there a working corner code?
Yes we can!
I've tried on a couple of Ervell tops and they are just too short for me. Same pretty much for BOO and WvG.
I'll have to keep an eye out.
Good to know, thanks for the heads up.
all my 44's fit big.

I guess it depends on body type. Measurement-wise, Geller shirts fit TTS. However, certain characteristics (i.e. high armholes) can make them feel slimmer. Then again, I know his sizing can be a bit erratic, so your mileage may vary.
how tall are you? dont know if you knwo this but mauro does MTM at basically the same price point as his regular shirting so if you need more length, thats the route you should go
Fred SEgal is 50% off nothing really worthwhile though
Same, my geller 44's often fit a bit more like a 46 to be honest. But it seems like in every other size people claim they run small.
My 44 shirt has approx 20" chest and it fits me fine due to the high armholes. If you compare sizes though, you'll find very small differences in the chest measurement.
Yes, for the knits, you'd likely have to stretch the sleeves and body a little if you're taller than 6'1". But the body/chest should work.
Geller in 52 though is both a bit large in the body and long
From hearing his all of the time I was expecting the same thing, but I just received the norwegian cardigan in an xs, and at 5'11" the fit is perfect all around. Not too short at all.
Well maybe the proportions are better in small sizes. L and XL are on the short side for taller guys
+1... and from the measurements I've seen (who knows how trustworthy they are...) a geller 44 and 46 for tops are basically the same in the chest, with the 46 just being a little long body and sleeves.
The norweigan sweater from this year fits differently than last years fair isle. The norweigan fits a little looser and noticeably longer. Also while both are baby alpaca, the one from this year is definitely heartier and heavier than last years fair isle, though the fair isle is a bit softer.
Re:difference between sizes. This is why its always a clusterfuck when people try to recommend sizes that aren't their own-i.e. someone says I take Medium in both X and Y brands so if you take a Small in X a Small in Y should fit you. Brands don't space their sizes out the same way. For instance there seems to be a much bigger difference between a Gitman small and medium than between a BoO small and medium.
From what I understand, Ervell knits all fit a bit bigger this season than last year.
Ervell's intended aesthetic results in pants and jackets that aren't big guy friendly, but their shirting appears to be. A large in the standard buttondown, for instance, has a chest of 22". The shirts seem to be pretty well picked over right now aside from the XL, so give those a look if you're in the market for longer/bigger buttondown shirts, Skip.
The Norwegian this year is indeed a little bit longer than the fair isle last year. I still had to stretch the sleeves out in cold water to fit my arms. In comparison, a similarly sized Geller, MMM, Lanvin knit would have sleeves 2" longer at least. 3 or 4" for a similarly sized SNS
