    Just stopped by Independence in Chicago today. Their Hyde Park location has a few Ervell pieces at 50% off - I saw a blue standard BD in Medium, light gray wool pants in 32, some jeans in 36, and a navy cotton/linen blazer in 40.

    Thought someone here might be interested.

    Tried on a pair of the standard pants today in blue fleck:

    http://www.patrikervell.com/product/detail/pass/1116

    I'm a 31 - there are no 1/2 sizes, so I tried the 30 and 32: the 30 was a bit too tight in the waist (although I could fasten the top button) and maybe slightly tight in the thigh. The 32 was big everywhere; the rise, in particular, was bad - looked drop crotch.

    On Ervell's website, they point out the pant can be tailored up to 2" in the waist/seat. Wondering if I could make a 30 work, have it tailored to let the waist out.

    Anyone tried this?

    Well if the 30 was only a bit too tight, and you can see on they garment itself that it could be let out, then why not!

    I'm basing this off Ervell's website; if I believed everything I read on the internet I'd be making $400k while working only 30 hours a week. Not sure how to tell from the pant itself.

    You can usually tell by looking at the construction along the waist/back side and seeing if there's extra fabric to be let out. Most pants/trousers are easy to take in or let out, Ervell pants (not jeans) are in the same boat. It is a pretty easy alteration and standard alteration to do also.

    The pants are actually made for this to be possible. That's why it is recommended on the website. fej is right about the construction, just look at the inside, or have your tailor look at the inside.

    The aviator fits slim but not tight. It's a nice slim pattern that is friendly to all body types.

    I have an aviator from a few seasons back and it is my favorite jacket. This season looks even better...

    Somehow I find Ervell stuffs sold out at some specific sizes really quick and no other places stock them. I asked PE about stockist and they said they "still have one last unit" even though I saw that item was sold out for a whole week. lol. Not sure if they're really sold out or just marketing.

    The Webstore works just like any other store, there is a buy and a size run of items bought. Some items, they buy only one in each size. Sometimes they don't buy any in certain sizes.

    nicely made. fits very slim in the arms. for the record i usually wear XS (34 in suit jackets) and took a 36 in Ervell linen check blazer from last season, fits nicely.

    I bought the baseball knit from ss13 and I have to say I'm disappointed.

    I wore it for the first time today and after 2 hours it's starting to pile a little at the back. I had a backpack on so that might've contributed a bit. It's a knit so I expect it to pile eventually but I didn't expect it to do so a few hours after wear. I guess it's strictly outerwear for me now

    collegiate jacket is short and has a raglan sleeve so i would size up one unless you have very narrow shoulders and are a smaller dude. if you're 5'9 or over and would be a medium i'd size up. small guys could size up too for a nice slouchy look.

    re wade that's very irregular. those really shouldn't pill at all, the weave is tight and smooth there's no reason for it to pill. what kind of backpack were you wearing?
