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!

I wear wool pants + a dress shirt to work 90% of the time, with and without a sport coat. I find wool superior to cotton in about every way. Durability, wrinkles, look, feel, etc...

The only thing I am not a fan of is wool pants + Polo shirts (but I don't own any Polo shirts at all so take that for what its worth).

For sizing, HY is true to size. Their 30's are about 30-31 waist (BB has slight vanity sizing, I find their 30's are closer to 31-32).

I think if you're in a casual tech setting, it probably makes sense to stick to chinos. I would go after more tailored ones like incotex.

WOW!!!!! Just received my first HY order today! I am blown away by how good this flannel pant is:

http://www.howardyount.com/collections/wool-pants/products/classic-flannel-pants-medium-gray

Pros:

- Quick shipping...only took a week from NY to Toronto. Glad HY is located in New York as opposed to a state further from me.
- Best packaging from any online order in my experience. From the box, to the minimal tape (hate taking forever to open a package), to the personal card, to the gift wrap. Phenomenal.
- Amazing quality. These are my first 100% wool trousers as I am making a shift away from chinos because I read that wool drapes the body better for slim people.
- Fit seems really good too. I just quickly wore it now and it fits true to size. I am a 32 usually and that's what I went with. Size down wouldnt have fit and sizing up would have been too big. I might need to let a little out in the waist though as it felt a bit tight.
- Made in Italy...yeah that kind of makes me feel good about myself.
- Really happy with the color as well, it's a dark grey...just what I was after.

Cons:

- I want to order more icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Thank you Jamison!

Unfortunately, no. I will be ordering more in the most popular sizes in future seasons, however. And we do still have it in 36, 42, and 44.

Yes, hopefully with the next shipment. Yes, fit is similar.

Excellent. Yeah, they're damn good pants.

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

Definitely no need to size up. They're cut loose to be worn over a jacket. If you are certain you wouldn't be wearing a suit or jacket underneath, you could even try sizing down. They are very warm fabric, but not heavy. For a NYC winter, you'd want them layered over something a little warmer like a jacket or sweater.

Working on getting an update.

Agreed. I don't really believe in year-round pants, at least not in New York; if I was in San Diego or LA I'd think differently.

You're very welcome.

And finally, for anyone who has made it this far, expect an email with new stuff some time tomorrow.

1) Is that navy cardigan part of the new stock? How is the fit on that? Does it fit slim? A slim medium fits me fine in most stuff.

2) When will the nailhead pants be restocked?

1) Yes. Fit is a classic slim, really what I'm going for across the board--not aggressively tight, not frumiply loose.

2) Not until Spring 2013, as early as February. I consider this a spring/summer fabric and we have to have some limits on how much we keep in stock. Right now we have 132 different fabrics in stock, with at least one pair/size available.

Just wanted to offer a website suggestion - it would be great to use a drop down menu to select a size and then show all available items of any style in that size.

Yeah it would be really great if the website got a little bit more functionality.

Jamison, I know you're swamped with new product, so I hate to bother you, but could you post some measurements for the cashmere rugby, size Small specifically?

Thanks,
Harry

PS Is it on the same sizing pattern as the lambswool sweaters? I dug up some fit info on those further back in the thread.

The site design goes back four years (!!!!) so it is due for a refresh.Frankly, I think there's something to be said for a very simple site, uncluttered site without excess functionality, but I think it could be made easier to browse.

I'm taking measurements of it later today and will post. No, different patterns from the lambswool (and different knitters).
