    I wear size 40 in cps (probably could fit 39 in CP though). So don't know if they would fit...

    so this ervell jacket is on gilt right now *in all sizes* at $299 down from $1035... so i guess it's just not a very exciting piece? the lack of back vent kind of bothers me as are the super long sleeves

    They had like 3 or 4 of that jacket at the barneys warehouse sale. It's super stiff and uncomfortable feeling.

    wow that's some really helpful info. thanks man
    i almost thought it was from the upcoming season since the guy modeling it is not the same guy (i.e. this guy) modelling most of the current season stuff..

    FWIW, I remember reading (or watching) an interview with ervell and he mentioned that it was his favorite piece from that collection. Don't quote me if I'm wrong, but I always thought his statement was weird seeing that the jacket is ugly as sin.

    fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

    i am at the crossroad and i need an answer to this within the hour:

    SS08 Jut Neck Sz 2
    [​IMG]

    Pros:
    More likely to fit because p2p measurement is bigger
    Higher quality lamb leather, as opposed to the ram leather used for the AW08
    Riri zips instead of the YKK

    Cons:
    Longer, which might make it hard to fit into if it bunches strangely on my hips since I'm short
    More expensive...about $300 more...

    AW08 Jut Neck Sz 1
    [​IMG]

    Pros:
    Cheaper
    Prefer the zipper configurations of this version
    Shorter length makes me happy

    Cons:
    Might not fit p2p since I am a big 46, but another seller stretched his out to 48 p2p so...
    The quality of the ram leather isn't that great from what I hear


    Should I fork over the extra money?

    Wouldn't it be more comfortable to sit with an unzipped leather anyways?

    the problem is i am 5'6" so it might sit on my hips strangely and cause the leather to bunch up uncomfortably

    Oh I completely read that wrong then. I probably wouldn't go with the 2nd since you know it won't fit, and it might not stretch. Also buying stuff before you can actually wear it is pretty much an all around bad decision
