That's good to hear, thanks. What had me curious was Liquidus' pic of his light grey flannels vs the mid grey flannel pics on the HY site. I'd be happy with either shade, so I guess it's moot.

Working on it, too.

Yeah, but that lets you scoop up anything left on sale from summer!

No, sorry.

Yes, definitely. A couple colors are back in stock (quietly) as of today. More will be added this week with an email going out to the mailing list when they're all up. We'll also have more of the VBC 100 (winter) and VBC 120s (fall) flannels, some of my favorite cloth.

I'm normally a 33, but as a cyclist I decided to size up to 34 due to the thigh clearance required.

Good thinking.

Yeah, that's it. Right now, the only fall/winter wool American made pants are the Lambswool Flannel and the Donegal. We're getting more colors of the Lambswool Flannel soon, and perhaps some other styles later this fall.

Yeah, I know this perhaps isn't ideal, but the color names are within a fabric group. Photos should be pretty accurate, so you can compare online across groups.

Jamison - Great stuff! I've bought many trousers and am now getting into the suits.

Could I suggest the button point on the Made in China jackets be lowered? It looks abnormally high and the gap between the bottom and top button is very large.

I would also like to suggest larger production runs for small sizes, especially the staple garments. I tried to order the Grey Herringbone suit about 8 hours after the notice went out, and to my dismay the 38/32 had already sold out.

I love HY clothing. The fit is fantastic, construction is great, interesting fabrics in useful colors at very reasonable prices. What more do you want? (other than being able to actually buy your size).

Just ordered my first quality trousers. Went with the classic flannel in medium grey. Hopefully it's pretty dark...can't wait! Don't think I'll be disappointed based on the reviews of HY trousers. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

So what is the big difference between the classic wool, the VBC and the Tasmanian wool?  I understand that they come from different suppliers, but what is the difference in qualitative difference?

 

edit: Nevermind on the Tasmanian wool, I missed that they were not flannel.

So, just got in my new blue cashmere windowpane jacket from this season's F/W. Initial thoughts- it's a very lightweight... sophisticated cashmere. Elegant, fine. I'm not sure how else to describe it but it's very nice. It is definitely not for an extremely winter day but might make a nice layering piece with a sweater underneath and some of last season's herringbone flannels if you were lucky enough to pick those up. Part of what makes its light weight especially nice is its wearability in offices- my job requires me to go from office to office each day in meetings and this won't be stifling. I love it.

Regarding the fit, I sized up from 36 to 38 from the last HY jacket I ordered, the light blue linen windowpane from the summer collection. Last time, I had to have my tailor let it out completely and I've gotten slightly bigger since I first got it and it pulls pretty good now. Here are some pre-tailoring pictures- we'll have some of the finished product. Note that I have some weird thing in my stance right now that one side looks considerably different than the other. I tried on another jacket and had the same problem but I don't think I typically have it.

Pics took in natural light only.




Bonus pic my girlfriend took while I was buttoning.. kind of cool.



We'll see it back from the tailor in a few weeks.

EDIT- I wanted to note that it looks a bit big in the shoulders. It's being taken in by my tailor and I think that will actually even out a bit.. I hope.

Did you at some point have a temporary storefront in New York City where we could try things on? Is that still available?

Looks good. Size 36 is already sold out. Does it wear hot?

You will most likely have to make an appt.

It does wear a bit warm but per my comments, not overly so. On this same trip to the tailor I took a Harris Tweed that wore much, much hotter.

I always get really hot and sweat a lot when I'm changing clothes/at the tailor. Back when I was fat (95 lbs+) I thought it would go away if I lost weight. NOPE.

Ha, I'm skinny as a stick and sweat a lot too when going to the tailor. I don't think you'll get many cold days in TX anyways though so probably good it's not too heavy.

Haha, me too! It's good to know I'm not alone. I guess it's something about being nervous for some reason?

Has anyone purchased one of the cashmere rugby shirts, size Small? If so, comments on fit and a measurement of back length would be really helpful for me - I'm in Canada, so nailing down sizing before purchase matters as returns aren't possible.

Thanks,
Harry

I, too, would like this info. Also, that's at least twice I read about returns not being possible from Canada. What gives? Do you mean to say that it is actually a big PITA given the customs issues with reclaiming duty/taxes?

If you're asking me, I meant exactly what I said - returns aren't possible from Canada. The HY website FAQ states the following under "Returns":

"At this time we do not accept returns on international orders."

Nice to see another SF'er from Wpg by the way!

Cheers,
Harry
