    To whoever bought that blue pocket sweater in S, you're an asshole. ;) Sell it to me if it doesn't work out, kthxbai

    not to be negative but it probably won't work for either of you... those lightweight pocket sweaters fit a size smaller than tagged (I picked up the one medium they had left and I'm a 36) so the small is more like a slim 34.

    Also someone should pick up the flecked wool/silk pants. I have the black version and they're awesome

    Yeah, I was actually trying for the XL. They fit a size smaller than the regular pocket sweaters and I actually think you should size up on the regular ones because they shrink a good bit in the wash.

    I regret doing so because it ended up stretching out my baseball knit/cardigan a bit in the length/arm length.
    Still need to try out that warm hand wash on just the sleeves and drying them a bit bunched up.
    Will do that tomorrow and post results.

    Yeah, it just seems like it's asking for trouble... idk, I always have something under a sweater so it's not like it's going to be sweaty, and even if I spilled I'd just spot clean unless it was really bad. I do have a cream SNS sweater that goes in the wash every once in awhile though, as it shows dirt pretty quickly.

    I know what you mean.
    Occasionally I'd wear my Sweaters just over a t-shirt, so cleaning would be necessary sometimes. (Just for the smell and such)
    I SELDOMLY wear my Ivory Pocket Sweater though. I only bust it out a few times to keep it clean.

    YUP! I was just as surprised as you when I first found out months ago.
    But Timothy explained that SHRINE that used to be in the same space as Independence which was a main stockist of Ervell, and once they left and Independence came in, the stock stuck there.

    But Independence mainly specializes in Made in the U.S. clothing like Engineered Garments, Batten, Gitman Vintage, Post O'Alls, etc...
    But they've recently expanded to Made In Japan goods too, like Kapital, Journal Standard, and The Real Mccoys. (Also a VERY impressive Maison Kitsune collection)

    Damn, but still sounds like they have a better selection than most shops here. I'll probably drop by this weekend.

    Thanks for the tip fishbones.

    That's for sure!
    If you happen to drop by on Friday, you'll see me there! I'll most likely be lounging around over there.

    damn, I was going for that small pocket sweater as well. looks like you saved me from having to sell it though, wasn't aware that you had to size up.
