    Thanks for the reply fycus and death shot.

    I'll probably go with hand wash since it's a ss shirt made of thinner cotton (not oxford).

    So I handwashed cold/flat dried my burgundy knit cotton cardigan, and the arms stretched out SUPER long.
    Is there anyway to shrink them back to normal? It's actually pretty crazy how it stretched.
    I did the same before to my ivory pocket sweater of the same knit/cotton, but the arms didn't stretch out at all.

    Seems risky I know but you could try dampening the sleeves and throwing it in the dryer on a low setting. All I can think of atm.

    You could try soaking just the sleeves in hot water and rubbing them a little. When you let them dry, try to maybe bunch 'em a bit, like not perfectly flat. Let us know how it works since I'll have to clean mine someday.

    Good idea @ rf.
    I'll try it out soon and post back the results.

    On vacation in the Bay Area this week so I went into Maas & Stacks, and after trying on nearly every piece of Ervell they carried, I have to say that the shirting this season is phenomenal. The granite shirt and the greenish silk shirt especially are both stellar; I highly recommend those as well as the quilted blue satin jacket. I also tried on the digital knit and it looks so good in person.

    Was thinking of picking up the shirting. Would you say TTS, size down or what? Never had the shirting but I take a small in Band of Outsiders.

    I'm a small in just about everything and Ervell shirting fits me perfectly at a small.

    just wondering what you guys think of etiquette in trying out clothes? Usually i feel like shit if i go in a store and try out anything more than 2-3 things and leave with none. Dunno what you guys think?

    I tried on a ton of stuff, probably around a dozen or so pieces, but that is only because I don't get the chance to try things on very often and I like so much of what Maas & Stacks carries that I would regret not trying on as many things as I could. I did feel kind of bad about leaving so much for the employees(who were super nice) to put back, but I bought a pair of Geller flight pants so I figure I wasn't a waste of energy.

    It's fine if you have an intention of possibly buying something if you like it. If you're just trying it on to figure out sizing while planning on buying it cheaper online it's messed up. Also I always put the stuff back that I try.

    Next time stop by barneys and try on everything and leave a mess, give the staff something to do other than give terrible advice and sizing advice that does not even remotely match what your sizing is

    ya I always feel to have this urge to try more shit when I KNOW that I already have something I will buy for sure.

    Just in case so I don't have to feel like a dick about trying so much shit on without buying anything...
