    Not exactly a should I or Shouldn't I....but

    Does anyone own any of the Ervell Standard BD shirts from this fall?

    The Ervell website lists them as:
    Size Small - Shoulders 16", Chest 19.5", 28.5
    Ok, sounds like a good fit for me

    However...

    Other Stores that stock Ervell (Icarus, etc) list as:
    Size Small - shoulders 17.75", chest 21", sleeves 25", length 28.5"
    Drastically different aside from length and would be huge on me in the shoulder and chest


    I would go with the Icarus store measurement. I bought the XS and it fits spot on for me (37" chest, 17" shoulder)

    Will never understand the presumption that leather soles means no go for winter weather. People got by for a long damned time with them. I live in a snowier city than most of you and my most worn boots are OG Alden 405's. They do not slip.

    i never noticed much slippage with my leather soled shoes either, plenty of grip.

    that being said, i still dont like wearing them in the snow/rain because they are wet for days afterward, and i dont have many pairs of shoes to rotate. also salt [​IMG]

    Thanks again.

    Yeah that's what I've always thought in the past, but the measurements on the ervell website had me wondering if they'd slimmed it down for this fall.

    So far I've found all the measurements on their site to be off [​IMG] , with the exception of the ones for the fair isle... those are pretty accurate.

    that price! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    And a full size run no less.
    I would like opinions on what would be a better choice as my first purchase

    1. Paul Smith antique black Ricard dip-dye lace up boot £165.50 (= $263,50)

    2. Fiorentini + Baker Workboot $420.00

    Totally different style of boot so it depends what you're going to wear them with - also where are you finding Ricards for 165GBP? Too lazy to look, ebayuk?

    For sure buy...and in case you didn't hear...there's some website out there where you can submit your own streetwear designs. I hope there's a metric shit ton of designs on par with this...

    i kinda like these because they look gross...not sure if thats a good thing[​IMG]


    I like those, not "gross" at all. Was going to buy that at Barneys but for some reason the 42 felt small when I tried them on and they didn't have a 43 in stock anymore.
