Just wondering that would just letting out the waist work as well instead? I find the waist a bit tight on me, but everything else seems fine. Is there a disadvantage to this that I should in the future size up in the waist and take everything else in?

If the hips and thighs fit well, but the waist is tight, it can be easily let out. This should also be a less costly alteration than sizing up and taking in the whole legs.

+1. The advice for the other poster was for a specific set of problems he had with the fit. Sounds like you are happy all around.

Any and all input will be appreciated.

The following pics are with the pants placed about an inch lower on my waist than the above pics.

And finally, here's my ideal fit for a pair of dress pants. The pants aren't pressed because I spilled coffee on them and had to handwash, so they have creases all over. The HY pants are a little bigger around the thigh, which I can probably live with, but the HY pants just don't taper.

I actually think any off the rack trousers won't fit you very well due to your body shape and posture. If you look how much the front rise is sitting below the back rise and you have your answer as to why your pockets are bowing out. otr trousers are just not made to accommodate this.

You need ideally a MTM or bespoke trouser that has the front rise made shorter than the back to clean things up a bit and get the pockets flat.

Are your dress shirts short enough to wear untucked and do they have rear darts?  thanks!

post #2558 of 4658

Oh, and how does the new shirt pattern differ from the old?

I quickly measured mine (a lambswool v-neck from last winter):

 

- chest (pit to pit) - 54.5 cm/21.5 in

- length - 67 cm/26.5 in

- sleeve from the center - 79 cm/31 in

- shoulder width - 41 cm/16.1 in

 

To compare the fit with something widely available, I have a couple of H&M v-necks size M, which fit a bit more snugly in the chest, but comparably in the length and sleeves.

Jamison, you picked the perfect dark blue for the knit. It's an inky indigo which makes it ever so slightly more lively against dark grey. Midnight would not have been quite as good.

If you are going to wear off the rack then you have to size up so the seat fits well and slim the waist and taper the leg. That's the only way to prevent the pants from flaring at the pocket

Rock that security guard look. I think I'll wear my HY flannels tomorrow and do the same.
