Yeah, minimum 2 inches. I go 2.5 inches on all my trousers.

If only someone were to buy my Leather Soul Alden's, I'd have money to spend on Howard Yount.

Just got both the HY light grey winter-weight flannels in and a lambswool v-neck. Have to say, the lambswool feels great, and the flannel is at once luxurious and warm. These are my fourth pair of HY trousers and if I can scrape up the money.. I want the cream grey.

Fit pics on sweater (have to size up one on pants to fit badonkadonk, so none yet there).

468

For the record, I'm 5'6", 150lbs, 37 inch measurement on chest and 30 inch waist. Just got out of a 3 hour car ride so a little tired in the picture. Also, on cuffs- yes, definitely, but if you're a short guy like me I do 1.5" cuffs. I feel like 2" would just look silly on me.

EDIT: Forgot size. It's a sz small sweater.

Thanks for the fit info on the sweater - looks good! How is the fit in the chest - any room to spare? I'm slightly larger in all dimensions and was debating between small and medium.

jsoftz, you got a 32 in the pants? does that waist fit or do you plan to get them altered?
post #1716 of 4635
Countrygent - I feel like there was a decent amount of room to spare. The fit isn't baggy but isn't super slim, either.

Omar1223- The waist is too large for me, I'll need to get it altered down. I size up in the waist so it will fit me in the hips and thigh.

I'm usually a 40R/42R OTR, with a 40" ish chest, what size would I be looking for in the lambswool sweaters? I can wear a M vneck sweater from J Crew, but find it too short in the body.

Can anyone describe what the wool "pick and pick" pants are like? I noticed that they're 14.8 oz so I'm wondering if they wear like flannel in terms of warmth, and what the texture of the pants is like.

14.8 is quite heavy and pick & pick isnt always that heavy. At that weight it will definately be warm. Having said that I think an equivalent weight flannel will be warmer. The flannel will definately be softer as well. Scabal does a beautiful range of flannel.

HA! Finally, the gray flannel herringbone pants are mine!

Gosh dangit Jamison. Are you on some sort of personal mission to destroy my financial situation?

Just picked up the herringbone flannels (obligatory) and the new navy moleskins... had to draw the line at the houndstooth trousers but if they're still around in a couple weeks I'll be back. I realize that is somewhat dubious, though.

I'd go with a cuff, for sure. Length depends on height to some extent. I like 1.75" or 2", and I'm 5'10"

It's possible, especially in the oxford which I hope to keep in stock.

Looks good. You wear a 36 jacket, right? The small is a little tighter on me, definitely slim; I wear a 38.

These are perhaps my favorite of the fall pants. They have a soft texture, with some depth. From a distance, they look solid. Only up close do you start to notice the pick and pick. They should wear pretty warm. They are not as formal as some of our other styles. I think will be spectacular with casual sport coats and sweaters, although they would work with a blazer.

I figured they'd go fast. They are great. There's a very very small possibility I could get more before the end of the year.

You should get the size M or even the S. I'm a 40/42 and wear a M from J. Crew and got the M lambswool cardigan, found that it is just right, if not even a little long (which is ok).

Would the classic 14oz flannel pants be appropriate for the current San Francisco climate? Highs range from the low 60s to the low 70s. Thanks.
