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.

Any cashmere navy crewnecks in XL? Do your cardigans fit similar to your vnecks and crewnecks?

Got my lambswool flannels today. Quality is ridiculous. Thanks Jamison! Expect another half dozen pairs in various styles ordered for me in the next few months.

Jamison -

 

How do the overcoats fit? No need to size up to wear over a suit, I assume? 

 

Also, how heavy are they? Warm enough for a NY Winter?

Hey folks, I'm a noob and working on improving my pant collection. I work in a very casual tech setting where most people wear jeans, and I generally wear cotton chinos with a dress shirt (no blazer - don't want to rock the boat). I've been recently wanting to get some wool pants as they will look more sleek and wasn't sure about HY sizing. I normally wear a 30 in Epaulet Walt's and 30 waist with BB cotton chinos. Should I get the same or size up/down? 

 

As a side note, I've read some posts on here where people have suggested that wool pants should not be worn unless paired with a blazer. Just wanted you thoughts on that also. If so, then I'd be better off getting more chinos.

 

 

Thanks!

FWIW, HY trousers are very accurate to the measurements given on the site. I'd suggest taking your best fitting pair of pants and measuring the waist, thigh, knee, and ankle and comparing those to the posted HY measurements. You'll get a very accurate idea of the fit from that.

As far as what to wear with it, if you're wearing a decent quality dress(y) shirt and decent shoes, you could pull off the look blazer-less. Quality clothing always looks good when paired with quality clothing.

I have no issue with wool pants with no sports coat/blazer. Some other people on SF do though.

^^ I agree with Rich that the measurements are very good. But having worn both HY trousers and Epaulet Walt's, I'd say that if you're a 30 in one, you're almost certainly a 30 in the other. Wool trousers are awesome, you should wear them. If you don't want to wear a jacket, you could try any variety of sweater.

^ i concur with the above. I have both Epaulet Walt's and HY and have found that I am the same size in both.

I asked Jamison your first question awhile back- he said yes, they are sized to fit over a suit. People who want to wear it without a jacket underneath may want to size down he said.

With regards to warmth, I dunno. I live in Columbus OH now so I am interested in that too.


Jamison- any update on the Chinese stuff including the navy ulster coat and polo coat? Do want.

Last week I got a pair of American cut Howard Younts and Epaulet Walts, both in 34. The Walts ended up needing to be taken in a little less than an inch, so they run a little bit bigger on me anyway.

As an aside, they must be made in the same factory. The factory tags inside the waistbands were identical other than the style/lot numbers.

Ok, thanks folks. One more question.

 

If there's one style of HY pants that could be worn year round (all season), what would it be? I've just come to terms with spending $100+ on pants, but I still can't get into the whole concept of buying different material pants each season. Therefore, I am looking for something which work in fall, winter, summer, etc.

post #2458 of 4756
^ All the best trousers are seasonal! Flannel, corduroy, moleskin, linen...

If you want flexibility and don't want to but a seasonable pant wardrobe then buy lighter wool. Doesn't HY have "four season" wool pants? They are a lighter weight than say the flannels to allow them to be worn more comfortably across a variety of temperatures. Start with something like that then decide if you want to acquire some season-specific pants like flannels for fall and winter.

I live in texas and wear the lighter (four seasons, S120, tropical, etc...) wool year round. Then the fun stuff (flannels, pick and pick, etc..) when the weather dips down below 80.
