    i'm sure you guys know this by now but most ervell merch is 50% off on the webstore.

    for some reason shirts are still 30% though, are they always stuck at that price?

    Well damn. Good news first. The button collar shirt (medical blue) in size small is an awesome fit on me. I was concerned because of the small shoulder measurements (16.25") but it works. Really like it a lot. Very thin though, so beware of that.

    But dude, the jeans..... damn are they small. I have kinda skinny legs and I pretty much wear 29's in most pants, but these 30's were frickin tiny. One of those things where right out of packaging, and without even trying them on I knew it was a no-go. But did try them on for just a brief second and indeed could barely even slide them on. Ridiculously...absurdly...slim (i hesitate to even use the word 'slim' as that normally suggests 'wearable') throughout in addition to a snug waist. I now have a good idea why they have a full size run at half off. The fabric is as thin as paper, probably weigh only a matter of few ounces. They would get wrinkled immediately upon wearing....and not a cool kind of wrinkled. So they're going back and I'm not going to be giving the Formal pants a shot as I initially intended.

    the model wears the clothes incredibly well and looks so great....he must be a freak of nature with his body measurements.

    Everything is cut smaller this season. I was not able to fit in the xs crewneck sweat shirt. Need to size up.

    yea the denim fits small as FUCK. like, I can fit a 32/33 in most denim, and a 34 was skin tight on me. could button it up but it looked atrocious. part of me wants to buy the 36 but honestly the jeans aren't even that nice..

    the jeans have always fit small (at least as long as I can remember)... I'm a 30 in pretty much everything but all 3 of my ervell jeans are 32s, and the teal jeans from last summer ran so small that even the 32 was too small for me (but the navy ones from the same season fit fine).

    Also, I'd disagree about the jeans not being that nice...though some are definitely better than others. Once it gets cold enough out I basically live in the brushed cotton pair I have (so much so that the crotch has blown out :fu:)

    ^ he's clearly lying. :facepalm:

    this season sucked. but it looked so good on paper. still so disappointed in the fit of my horsehair aviator jacket. it's just NQR across the chest / shoulder / back. i can't even pinpoint why, but it sits well odd.

    i don't understand why patrik can't get the jeans right. like the poster above i'm 29 almost across the board and 30 are like leggings on me, but fine in the waist. i just know should i size up i'll be doing better down the leg but not so the waist.

    first time i've seen the ervell webstore drop to 50%. they're normally steadfast on keeping to that 30% mark. people must be catching on - buy the clothe, not the label.

    not true on pocket knits, i've got a small from this season and it fits big - more like a medium. kinda hangs off me.

    agree about what's been said, don't understand the aviator jacket fit. could have been such a great jacket and looks nice on the model but in person the thing is just odd.

    Which one? I have regular pocket sweater from this season as well as one of the lightweight pocket sweaters and both run smaller than usual (though the lightweight version is longer).... they definitely don't run big. I'm usually a TTS small in most brands (and most of the ervell knits I already own from past seasons are smalls) and the small pocket sweater is almost too slim in the chest and the lightweight one fits me fine despite sizing up to a medium...

    TL DR - listen to mellowfellow, he's right about the knits running small this season.
