    if your jeans aren't faded enough you can't wear navy jacket with indigo jeans.

    Pic up some grey jeans and/or check the runway pics for ideas.

    grey, brown, tan, etc etc should work pretty easy.

    This video surfaced after some backlash on Ervell current cut and fit, which I do not mind all that much really. More for me.

    pretty cool

    ^^

    I wasn't aware that there was some sort of backlash. I'm interested to hear some of the criticism. More details?

    is it just me or does the cupro (polyester anyone?) sleeves and the way they stack / crinkle kinda look shit?
    [/quote]
    [quote name='aso2004' timestamp='1348480048' post='2819170']
    Sleeves are too long for the model.
    If you maybe put some movement in that jacket, it could be ace and make the stacking hardly noticeable...

    [quote name='Fycus' timestamp='1348507038' post='2819360']
    not to mention the ribbing looks like shit (imo). I love ervell and his ingenuity but his stuff often falls flat in these areas. Good ideas on paper, doesn't look great in person.
    [/quote]
    [quote name='home' timestamp='1348511198' post='2819397']
    ^ yeah and the fit often pretty awkward unless you're shit short.
    [/quote]
    [quote name='BrokenGlass' timestamp='1348512397' post='2819406']
    his silhouette is pretty classic, he cuts his pants with a medium high rise so his cropped outerwear and some knits hit just at the waist band.... as for being shit short to wear it? his shirting / suiting / pants all run long
    [/quote]
    [quote name='home' timestamp='1348514441' post='2819427']
    ^ shirts / suits almost by default 'run long'. i'm talking tops - jackets, knitwear, etc.

    as a case in point, a medium in the above bomber has an overall length of less than 60cm. that shit cray. anyone over 6', as many 48s are, will struggle to not have this continually rise above their belt-line.

    patrik needs to get back to basics - this was not a problem with his collections 2+ years ago. no wonder we're getting nigh on full runs on gilt..

    true story

    collegiate jacket hits at my waist, sleeves are too long, ultra baggy, and the elastic waistband makes me look like a hunchback

    so i wear it all the time obviously

    have you tried it on in person? if you are by M&S you should introduce yourself.

    The thing about Ervell is that it dosen't work for every body type, but when it does work, it works magically and the details really fall into place.

    The ribbing is a little loose and soft, but imo using cupro for the ribbing creates a nice and cool feel to the skin that is not often found in varsity styles.

    Got to the sample sale at about 12:20 today. No line. Would have arrived earlier but was signing the lease on mt apartment.

    Was pretty small and somewhat disappointingly not much older stuff, more importantly prices were somewhat higher than I'd anticipated. Shirts were 100+, sweaters 130+, pants 130-200+, blazers were 300+, outerwear ranged from 300-900. Best deal was hats for 69 each (i bought 2). Interestingly a lot of current season stuff. Good amount of runway samples, though few were super exciting, most things were size medium or xs i think...a lot of stuff was untagges most things either fit me or were too small...cool women's selection. Some beautiful accessories (bags, belts, hats) i didnt recognize...was pised at virtually no club collar shirts. One guy said maybe different stuff tomorrow, guy at the register said, same stuff. May go back, not sure yet. Oh yeah also bought a pocket sweater was 140. I felt i did well had fun though keep in mind it is pretty small, no ac, not super packed but busy. Dont think there were changing rooms (didnt ask just took off ma shirt):

    ^ Did I see you?

    Agreed that the sale was disappointing. Prices were really high. The backpacks were at retail price, lol.

    By the time I arrived, only a 1-2 Smalls in outerwear were left. There was the blue mid-century shirt that was pretty nice ($110). Sweater selection was abysmal. Lots of polos (that purple was nice; lots of mediums in that, wonder why nobody copped).

    Overall, meh unless you have a girl who rocks Ervell (women's selection > men's).

    PS - Saw a couple of SFers, for sure, as well as some #menswear bloggers as well. I talked to one guy who had on an EG jacket; shout me out if you're on here.

    what I ended up with through Suddenlee. Kind of want to ask them to go back tomorrow just to see. Pretty much hit the mark in terms of what I was looking for.
    Was on the phone texting and sending photos back and forth with the shopper. Cool experience for sure being all the way out here in California.

    Thought about kopping knit pocket sweater but the color was too dark. Wanted something different but the pocket sweater I was told was more gray than green. Almost picked up cap too but I was told only brown suede in the short brim. Will try my luck on the F/W 12 selection.

    Overall I am please, just hoping to get it soon. Didn't want to look at pants since I probably don't fit any of them (thunder thighs syndrome) and I already picked up an outerwear earlier this season. I do have the Ervell F/W 11 bomber.
    Hope the jacket in size 40 fits me as I'm usually a 38, 17.5/20" shoulder to chest measurement. Knit cardigan I got is size small.

    Anyone see the Suddenlee shopper, j/w? She got there at like opening time. Shout out to Erica

    My mom went. Picked up a shawl collar jacket not sure if it was the one pictured above, she said its a tonal blue on blue but the collar is lighter than the jacket and a military sweater with grosgrain at the shoulders, anyone have pictures of either of those?? She was freaking out cz it was too hot in there, def wasn't a lot for a 42.
