I have a pair on order and will have them in a couple days. I'll report back if no one else does first.

I hope this is restocked someday...

It's possible, but not a given. They're expensive to produce. That said, I can make one-offs so if you're set on it, let me know. It's also possible to tweak the colors if someone wanted. I could even do a custom run of these if people were interested, but they'd still be rather pricey.

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

We're going to be doing both the Italian and the American through Spring/Summer 2013. They're just different enough to justify making both. But we're definitely expanding the American for spring to include a run of tropical wool in various colors.

On the brown donegal, we're out in a number of sizes, but I hope to restock later this fall when we're sold out of enough stuff to justify the production run.

This makes me smile. Also, ours are made in the United States of Italian fabric and the Brooks Brothers pants are "imported."

I think they might be. For your local climate, the VBC Super 120s flannel should be great. Over a number of years, I think the lambswool might prove a little more durable, but the VBC is very very nice cloth.

wait, I was under the impression that the super 100s flannel were made in italy. Is that not right?

Gah, you're right. I thought the post was about the lambswool flannels, made in America.
post #2436 of 4599
how much material is there in the waist of the USA pants? I'm about a 31 at the waist, and am thinking of picking up the size 28 USA pants (have a 29.5'' waist)
post #2437 of 4599
It's a standard inlay. I think letting out 1.5" is about the maximum, and that you'd probably be better with the size 30.

ah, ok. how do the 30 made in USA compare to the 30 made in Italy (at least in terms of thigh)? Rise and knee look about the same, with the made in USA having a bit slimmer ankles.

Any new caridgans coming?

I want to double check, but the thigh should be a touch bigger on the American pair - this is the case in 32.

Yes, I have navy and burgundy scottish lambswool cardigans in the office, but not photographed or posted. Also in that shipment are crewnecks in 12 colors, and v-necks in 11 colors. Still to come is one cardigan in dove grey, and some other stuff.

I hope to have the new sweaters up later this week, along with new umbrellas, and a few more styles of HY and Marcoliani socks.
post #2441 of 4599

Any idea of when the four season 100 or 120 wool pants will be restocked?  I'd like to order a couple.

What will the price be for the cardigans?

We do not currently have any on order, but when I place the Spring/Summer 2013 order in the next week or so, I'm going to order some for fall delivery.

TBD. Lambswool yarn went up quite a bit.

Cool. will likely give those caridgans and grey wool flannels a try.
