If anyone gets the Brushed Twill Jacket - Grey Blue, I would love to hear your impressions on the pattern and color.

Afaik, this is mostly due to unpredictable Customs delays both ways, which affect how quickly a returned item can be restocked and sold on to another buyer. Keep in mind that HY is a relatively small retailer that offers a lot of seasonal items, some only available in limited quantities, so this is a valid concern imo.

Re reclaiming duties/taxes : it is a bit of a hassle, but nothing to do with HY. You need to provide proof of return shipping, as well as credit/reimbursement. That last part is important, particularly since it's not indicated on the CBSA form you fill out to file your claim. Proof of return shipping to the seller/sender is not enough and they'll refuse/return your claim for insufficient documentation. I've had this happen the first time I filed a claim and had to wait to get my next cc statement that showed the actual credit/reimbursement before resubmitting.

Wow,
And I long thought I was the only one from here. As a note, I have never had any customs issues with my orders to Winnipeg from Jamison.

Three of us? Must be more of us out there yet! BTW, thanks for the replies to my query. I've been eyeing some OTC argyle socks, so I guess it's time to order.

I've never had any issues either - once I figured out the size thing, with some help from SF, I've been very happy with everything from HY.

Good to know there's more of us on here!

I am also in Winnipeg. I've ordered three items separately from HY (two pairs of trousers and a scarf). For some reason one pair of trousers had a duty charge of about 10 dollars.

Wow a lot of people from Winnipeg. I'm from Toronto, have never had any duty charged for an online purchase but I am awaiting my first order from HY...so lets see....

You could be hit with HST on any package that comes over, but duty is conditional. Were the trousers that you were charged duty on the Italian made ones perhaps? The American made ones should be exempt from duty under NAFTA.

They were the Italian made flannels from two years ago. There is no HST in Manitoba. However, the amount I paid might reflect the GST (5%) or PST (7%)
post #2410 of 4611
Duty is 6% country wide, but rarely enforced unless the shipper uses a courier that performs the brokerage on your behalf. Thankfully HY uses USPS. I've found the following link somewhat accurate for calculating how much you'll be dinged: The Final Cost

Jamison, any idea on when the flannel DB will be up on the site? I have an itchy trigger finger and a lonely credit card.
post #2412 of 4611
I know it's late, but I just got these photos from a dance in May when my linen/wool HY jacket was new. It has since received a lot of wear. Here are some action shots that demonstrate the fit... even though I am making really goofy faces.

I'd like to point out that even in some pretty extreme movement, the high armholes allow free movement and don't make the jacket fly off my shoulders. Even when I might be accidentally lifting off most of the jacket doing other stuff. The trousers also pretty much maintain their line as I move, iPhone outline notwithstanding.

Howard Yount Linen and Wool Windowpane - Blue (Sz 36 versus the 38 I am trying on in the previous pics)
Howard Yount Dyed Cotton Gabardine Pants - White
Mastai Ferreti Blue Button Down shirt (SF B&S)
Brown and White Grenson Spectators (SF B&S from excellent merchant SpooPoker)
Some stupid colorful socks I wish I didn't wear but are really popular in the swing-dance scene.





Yeah.. so.. ignore the faces, focus on the awesome clothes sold by Jamison!

Thanks,
Harry

Send me a message or an email if you want more details, but I'm a size 38R in just about everything and the small rugby fits me well. Not too tight, not too loose. I'll post a picture before too long, but it's been too warm for cashmere here in NYC.

I know that at least one SF member has ordered this, but won't get the package until next week.

No idea, I'm afraid. We're having some difficulties in getting them delivered.

Please compare the flannel pants (classic, lambswool, and super 120s) with the brooks milano flannel pants.

fit, quality, longevity, etc.

thanks.
post #2415 of 4611
To all of the jerks who bought out the medium blue & grey cashmere rugbys: please post photos.

I hope this is restocked someday...
