More importantly, are they standard or even high-rise? I can't deal with that low-rise garbage anymore. Would appreciate posting of measurements when you have a chance.

The 32 measure 32" waist (maybe 32.25"), front rise (crotch seam to waistband) is 10", and ankle opening is 8 1/8". They are unfinished. I didn't take the inseam measurement yet but it is pretty standard.

That was the only size I've had a chance to confirm yet. They came in a little late from Italy and I wanted to get them on the site asap. Frankly, the orders came in faster than I had expected. They're very nice pants, and a great value in my opinion at full price, so I shouldn't have been too surprised!

Also,what's the quality of pants,say compared to Incotex Sartoriale?They look really good in the pictures.

Thanks. In New York, I'd keep the super 120 pairs to fall and winter. They will wear a little too warm for spring unless you're in a cool climate. I think they compare well to top RTW pants like Incotex, especially considering the price and availability. Have you seen what Incotex go for these days? Crazy. We run with low markups at Howard Yount--these should probably retail for closer to $250/$300, but where's the fun in that? The idea is for our customers to be happy to pay full price.

You got it. I was looking at some patterns for this fall, but I wasn't in love with anything I saw, and decided to stick to the traditional, surprisingly hard to find basics. For Spring/Summer 2010, the trouser offerings will expand quite a bit, and there will be a very cool plaid or two.

Yes, I would say they fit like the european Incotex, albeit not tightest skin tight pairs with elastene.

Me too, excited that is. This has been in the works for a long time. I could have had them earlier, but I wanted to find a maker that was comfortable making a slim trouser without a lot of explaining and prodding. These guys knew exactly what I wanted, and they do it well.

And are the cashmere/wool scarfs really pinstripe? The closeup looks more like chalkstripe to me. (Which would kick ass)

Yes. I have some knit cashmere coming (did I just ruin a surprise?) albeit in patterns, not just plain grays. There are also a few more plaid wool ties coming. The trousers are unfinished, but I haven't had a chance to confirm inseam. I think it's 37" or 38" by looking at them. You know, that's probably a more accurate description (chalkstripe) but I went with the more common term. They look great, and are just a few hold overs from this winter.

Measurements? Weight of the cloth?

Indeed. Especially in the cut of ours, and at this price. I should be able to add the weight of the cloth early next week.

Jamison, just a thought, but it seems like this item would make more sense in the Accessories section than the Ties section. Or perhaps you could place it in both areas.

Very smart. Not sure how I didn't think of this. Done!

I'd say they are mid rise, a little lower than traditional American pants. That said, I'm high waisted and generally wear higher-rise pants, and I think these look great on me.

I am really looking forward to ecieving my trousers ... I've been looking for a pair of nice grey flannels forever. Well fitting RTW trousers are hard to come by.

I really hope these trousers are not just a 1-time thing!

Oh, absolutely not. Spring 2010 will bring many more styles and materials. This is just the beginning.

J, the pants look great indeed and your retail price is equally attractive. A couple of questions: how much fabric is there to let out at the waist? Also, from your description :100% Tasmanian wool, wool woven in Italy. Flat front. Three button closure. Loop to secure belt buckle. Curtained, rear-split waistband. Hand-stitched detailing. Unfinished. Is that what that little loop on the front of Incos is for? If so, I have no clue how I'm supposed to hook that to my belt buckle...

Sweet. Kinda sucks living on the other side of the hemisphere though with seasonal weather and what not.

You simply pass the tongue of the buckle through the loop before you fasten the buckle.

Super wools in all season weight would be very nice.Also interested in measurements of current merchandise.

Tks, should have thought of that! Didn't realize the loop was long enough to reach up to the prong/tongue.

I just checked the Howard Yount web site, and I can't seem to locate the pants anywhere. Am I missing something (or maybe just dense)? I would love to take a look at the offering in that area.

Thank you.

Yep, that's what it's for. Very useful for keeping the belt buckle in place.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't entirely believe in all season wool. You're in a climate, IIRC, which might make more sense, but in New York the big difference in seasons makes it difficult. I don't want to wear the same pants for 20° winter days as I do for 85° summer days. There's a nice super 120s or 140s I'm looking at for Spring, but it would be just too light and silky for dead cold winter here.
