    I feel like that coat would work better with a lighter palette

    Love the coat though

    Haha, nice, I live at 5th and M.

    I was wearing the jacket in the evening -- it was a little warm when I put it on, but it was perfect by the time I left. Any thoughts on the fit?


    fit looks good. i always found that collegiate to either fit too big or too small on peeps but looks fine here

    other than iron your pants [​IMG] , maybe change up the shoes to get a bit more contrast in your fit. looks like the pants and the shoes (vanishing elephant?) are same/similar tone

    nameback, not good. pants need an iron (you know that), and light fabric like that + stacking = no go. roll em up or get them hemmed. also that jacket shape is never flattering. on anyone. ever. worst ervell piece, total mystery why anyone buysi t.

    I agree. It seems like Ervell has a sharp break between the shirts, which fit long and slim, and certain sweaters/jackets, that fit short and wide. The new Our Legacy shirt style, the 90s cut, is short and wide too. I do not dig it.

    Hm, didn't think about that. I'll try it again cuffed or rolled.

    I was questionable on it until I saw it in a Mellowfellow pic, and I decided to kop. I actually think it looks really good in person, but I also think it looks good in that pic. Plus I got it for $75 NWT.

    it doesn't look great in person. i've owned it. the arms are too wide (and clearly too long for you). it's a big weird too short egg/bell shape. there's a reason a billion of them were on gilt. also IMO, despite being a huge fan of facial hair, i don't really like the look on. id explain why but people would call me racist.

    also mikey you'd look infinitely better if you learned how to style. example: unbutton another button on the chambray. if you're going to go for hte high water look, get a pair of jeans and hem them high up, then cuff them once. the super cuff makes you look like a short dork.

    haha, what? Now you've piqued my curiosity.

    I agree it's not Ervell's best piece, but I think it can definitely work in context. Also, aren't the sleeves supposed to fit long?

    the sleeves aren't supposed to cover so much of your hands. it's just.. a weird jacket cut. the issue is on the older versions (like jet has), there was a nice banded cuff. improved the fit a lot. i love the bland ass direction ervell has gone, but ive just NEVER understood that jacket. ive always put it in my gilt cart cause its so cheap, then remembered why its so bad.

    also I think the facial hair makes you look too jewish. and as a jew with facial hair, I'm coming from a place of love.

    Thanks.

    Here's the mellowfellow pic for comparison: [​IMG]

    I think it just has long sleeves.
