post #2416 of 4759
Just a quick drop-in to say that the Donegal grey pants I ordered arrived this week and I'm blown away by how amazing they look IRL. Pulled the trigger on two more pairs of USA-fit pants just this morning. Hopefully S/S '13 will feature even more of the USA-fit stuff.

Now if I can just resist the urge to get the Donegal brown pants.

I also wanted to add that I ordered a bunch of pairs of pants and the quality of the material (and the quality in general) on each pair is incredible. In my case though, I'm hoping you'll continue making plenty with the made in Italy cut.

What's the difference in the Italian and American cuts?
post #2419 of 4759
The American felt looser in the thigh to me. I didn't like it as much, but some people had been asking for that type of cut for a while.

Higher rise too. You can compare the fit guides.

Hi,

Sent you a message through the HY site about this. I think some other SF'ers would be interested in the measurements for the small rugby as well though.

Cheers,

Yeah it is definitely a bit looser of a fit by the measurements given. I can't wait for my Italian pants to arrive.

Don't the made in USA pants taper more than the Italian ones, or am I mistaken?

I will second both of these comments. I bought one pair last year to make sure I liked the fit and they could take a beating. Now I am up to 10/11 pairs. Every time I get a new pair, the fabric jumps out at me. Its just fantastic.

ok, after spending a few minutes thinking about it, I decided that these made in italy 12oz flannel pants were likely far better than the milano flannels at brooks. Cancelled the brooks orders and went with HY. Hope I don't regret it, but I doubt I will.

I have a pair of flannel Milanos and the HY pants blow them out of the water.

No contest. HY by a mile.

Anyone tried the lambswool flannel yet? I am intrigued but they look a bit warm for my climate.

I find 12oz and above to be generally a bit thick.
