During the Barneys Sample Sale we were thrilled to find a rack with a few pieces of Patrik Ervell's superbly minimalist clothing. Unfortunately, they were all sized extra large. While we left that sale feeling disheartened, it looks like we've been given a reprieve -- and same to anyone in New York. Today, starting at 12pm, you'll get a chance to take on Ervell's simple but elegant menswear (which was nominated for Best New Menswear Designer this year by GQ). Shirts will be $95 from $220 and knits will start at $120 (usually $330). And seeing as they're samples, we're hoping to find a few smaller sizes to toss on our skinny bones.
