Patrik Ervell presented a more polished lineup than usual, one with a good balance of outerwear, athletic elements and tailored pieces.
He relied heavily on a charcoal wool men’s wear fabric that he lined with a performance membrane and used on everything from a three-button suit to a hooded parka and a V-neck anorak. “It feels nontraditional in men’s wear but in my lexicon of style it’s not out of the ordinary,” Ervell said.
A similar sensibility was evident in his use of “teddy fur,” a woven wool from the Steiff stuffed animal company that he worked on an ivory bomber and a zip-up vest paired with bonded wool sweatpants. Although a stretch for most Wall Street brokers, for Ervell it’s a “work uniform that actually lives in the modern world.”
