Did you handle this seasons shirts or are you just saying? Also is he using the same oxford material?

Actually, the two oxford shirts I have from last season (FW09) are made in Korea and you can't tell the difference between them and the oxford shirts from SS09. I haven't handled this season's yet, though.

I've seen this season's shirts. they're amaaazing. that video where he talks about how he made them blew my mind. they're hella expensive tho (I think like 280 a shirt). it's a really light airy kind of fabric, single needle stitching, the works.

really love patrik ervell.

pretty much between chai and ervell. but ervell is going to win out over chai. all is still good though because chai is doing much better with womens than his men lines.

that's kind of awesome. I wish more stores would hold designers feet to the fire about their production. How and why rag and bone went from being made "proudly" in New York, to being made somewhere in "America", to being made in Peru, to being made in China is totally beyond me.

It's funny that in this day and age we as sufu users give so much adoration to ToJ, which is made in Korea, and yet are suspicious about Ervell's garments being made there. Lord knows I've had shitty products with "made in italy" or "made in America" tags on them.

initially I was skeptical about toj since it was made in korea. But seeing the products first hand I have to say i'm impressed, and I really don't get why they sent the ervell stuff back.

ToJ is small and upstart, and well priced. Patrik Ervell/Rag and Bone/APC are not small or upstart, and they're expensive as fuck. Charge designer prices, get your shit made somewhere with a minimum wage.

I'm just saying, "made In Korea" doesn't necessarily correlate with bad quality these days, nor does "made in Italy" or "made in America" mean a fine product either.

My very limited experience of both Rag and Bone and Ervell has shown inconsistent quality from product to product. I doubt this will change not that Ervell gets his stuff made in Korea. Some stuff will be fine, some will be "ugh".

I never got the impression that Ervell boasted about being "Made in USA," nor did it ever really become the central talking point for the brand compared to Rag & Bone or Engineered Garments. To me, Ervell was more about design and fabrication so location of manufacturing is irrelevant- especially if the quality is better (suiting is much nicer too).

I'm curious, where'd you hear that from? An online store would be the greatest thing ever.

It seems like NDG's store has been under construction for nearly 3 years now

Someone sold an a/w 2008 Collegiate jacket on Supermarket a few months ago. Size medium, dark navy with tan sleeves. Really nice jacket.

it looked a little like fondant (lol) in the pictures so i thought maybe it was some great thick fabric, like a sweatshirt. i felt it at nom de guerre, just feels like a regular tshirt with a smoother texture. fit is boxy, sorta like a slightly oversized sweatshirt without the ribbing and shorter sleeves.
