post #2221 of 4756

Do you know how fast customer support reply to the customers? I wrote them 2 days ago and still no reply. I ordered mid gray tropical wool pants but found dark gray pants in the box. Tried to contact customer support to reserve mid gray pants for exchange, but no reply and today on the site it says that my size is sold out.puzzled.gif What was your experience?

Email sent. Sorry, slammed by sale orders so we're running a couple days late.

jamison, any plans for pointed knit ties? i have a navy one from your first season and wanted some more colors.

Can someone explain the difference between the pick and pick, 4 season, flannel, and nailhead wools? Is it just the weight or does the finish vary also?

Probably an uneducated view on pants, but I typically see pants as tropical weight wool, 4 season wool, heavy weight wool, or cotton. Didn't realize there were so many additional categories for wool.

We have more stock of a summer blazer, though not the same fabric as before. This is a Vitale Barberis Super 110s. Very open weave. It should be available before the end of the week, if not tonight. A sneak preview:

Just different weaves (pick and pick; nailhead), weights (four season); or types of fabric. Send me any questions you have and I can elaborate.

It looks like I'll be doing more summer blazers in this fantastic wool/silk blend from Zegna:

Oooo...would it be too much to ask for a blazer or some such in that delicious grey plaid at the bottom left? Yummy.

I've had quite a time finding the right sizing for HY wool pants. I wear a 32 waist in other pants, but a 32 in these pants fits so tight I could barely pull them up. I lift weights including squatting so my thighs are somewhat muscular, but my overall frame is tall and skinny (6'4', 200lbs). Anyway, I returned the 32s for 34s and those were still too tight in the thigh. I returned the 34s for 36s and those fit decently though the leg.

 

The waist on the 36s needed to be taken in, so I took them to a tailor. I got them back and they look good, but there is one problem area. When I sit down, there is this this bulging swath of fabric below the beltline from pocket to pocket. I don't know why the fabric gets all bunched up there or if this is common with pants that had to be taken in at the waist.

 

Should I take them back to the tailor?

 

Should I just live with this?

 

Do HY pants just not fit me?

Where were the trousers in question made? If they were made in Italy, then see if the tailor can let the legs out a little bit, then later try the trousers that are Made in USA and go with a 34.

As for the pockets, that's par for the course with flat front trousers. Sounds like they are tight in the seat/hips.

I am similar at 6'4" 190lb and row. I usually take a 36 Made in Italy trouser with tightness in the thighs, and take a 34 in the Made in USA fit.

Italy.

 

Do you wear a 36 or did you have to size up so the pants fit through the thigh?

 

The 36s I have now aren't tight anywhere, but fabric bunches up on my lap when I'm seated. This picture shows what happens when I sit. There is a big roll of fabric.

I wear a true 35.5" waist. So the 36 is OK since it sits lower to my hips. If HY didn't offer the new USA trousers, I was going to try a 38 and take the waist in.

Not currently planned. I'm working on the Spring/Summer 2013 collection and could see doing something like this.

Fall 2012 stuff is starting to roll in and it is looking really great. I may put out a few things early, but the collection will hit in August/early September at the latest.
