Just placed an order myself with fingers crossed icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I'm glad you guys like them. As you can see from the above--which is probably not even half of the pants we'll have this fall. HY is going BIG for fall 2012.
For at least the next two season we will be doing both models--the Italian and the American. f
Yes, I would try the 7.5 first. These do run pretty large. I'm a 9 in almost everything, an 8.5 in all the Howard Yount shoes so far.
Depends on the day. If you ordered today, it would ship tomorrow afternoon and arrive Saturday or Monday, depending on where you are. We ship from Manhattan.

Oh crap donegal. Plus y'all are doing the overcoats. And there will be some kickass jackets. The blue windowpane linen/wool jacket is a favorite, BTW, and is getting a ton of wear.

If I want an overcoat and say, 2 pairs of trousers, and one sports jacket/suit, I wonder how much I will have to put aside from Jamison straight away. Perhaps I should just have a small portion of my paycheck sent to the HY account every month and I just burn down this balance as I go. Yeah..

So I must have mentioned this! Yeah, a very limited edition of unstructured overcoats in 100% cashmere from Zegna and Loro Piana, and then a few others, I think six styles total.

Jamison,

I recently received two pairs of shoes from you. The brown suede chukkas and the cognac saddle shoe.  I sized down from a 10 to a 9.5.  The chukka fits perfect but the saddle shoe is a little snug.  Could it be the saddle shoe's last is slightly more narrow or do I really need to go my actual size on some shoes?  Has anyone mentioned this before?

 

To be honest, I would buy every pair of shoes that you offer, but you are all out of size 10's.  It was very frustrating to see the double monks in my size all sold out by the time I even noticed you had new stock.....

I have a pair of Tasmanian Wool Pants from last season and they fit great but they pull on my calfs. It is not huge but just enough to cause the fabric to stick to my legs when I stand up, I wear OTC socks so that may not help either.

Suggestions?

I looked at the measurements and I think my best option would be to go up a size. I ordered a 32 and I believe a 34 will give me the extra room around my calves. How much work is going to be done to get the pants to fit like the size 32? I am having trouble assessing the competency level of my tailor at the moment. :/

You could see if your tailor can fully line them. Or wear more slippery socks!

Dub Monks. Excellent value, great finishing. Suede is not as nice (supple and thick) as Alden, but these will wear beautifully. They fit large, as stated, much like Alden Trubalance (nice and wide).

To those of you with a HY sportcoat, how is the drop from shoulders to waist? I'm trying to make sense of the measurements...they seem narrow in the shoulders but bigger in the chest and waist. Are these ok for trim guys?

They're good for trim guys. I myself am one, as are many repeat customers who wear the jackets.

In case you didn't get the mailer, there's a sale on all of our American-made goods right now:

41 inch chest -- 16 inch neck -- 32 waist

 

Large Polo ok?  XL looks big.

Does anyone have any experience with how slim HY shirts are in the torso compared to Epaulet? I am curious because most shirts are blousey around my waist, even "slim" cuts (BB extra slim comes to mind).

They are very slim -- measurements and description on the website.

Just sent you a pm. Email me to set something up. Short answer: yes, but times are limited.

Brooks Brothers extra slim is blousy around your waist? I would say that our shirts are between the Brooks slim and the extra slim.
