He has a couple of ties right now that are 25% off. One is a very nice brown, good for fall.

Go compare the prices to Epaulet or Sid Mashburn. They're already discounted.

The shoulder seams seem to angle inward from the armpit (towards the neck) when looking at it from the front lying flat - I'm so used to seeing a slight angle outward from the armpit.

They are definitely narrower than other sweaters, and especially compared to the chest which is a bit larger. But I find that with sweaters it matters less than with other pieces of clothing, due to their stretchiness :)

Anyone know how often Jamison replenishes his stock of suits and sportcoats? I was hoping to order a 38r suit, but his inventory seems to sell out quickly.

We're working to keep up over here. It didn't help that last week my son got the flu and had to stay home from school and then this week I caught it. So we've been behind a bit on correspondence and playing a little catchup on shipping. In general, anything out of the conveyor belt of new orders--like returns, exchanges, etc--will usually take a little bit longer. If you're waiting an answer on something, we're working through messages but you could also email again.

No. And I'm getting doubtful that we're going to have them. Very frustrating. Make that VERY frustrating. This goes for the flannel suits, and the rest of our sportcoats.

However, as others have said, he doesn't use discount codes and doesn't have "big" sales where things are discounted by 50%, as his prices are quite reasonable in the first place, particularly considering that a lot of the stock is made in small quantities in the US or in Italy.

This is one of the fundamental ideas behind the business. I think our prices are fair from the beginning, and when we run end of season discounts, they are limited (but still offer excellent deals). I want customers to be able to buy their clothes at any time, especially in the beginning of a season, rather than having to wait for "secret" sales or coupons or whatnot. This is certainly against the larger retail tide, but I think it's better. We certainly should be charging more for most of our goods.

This is one of the reasons why I had been resistant to posting measurements, but I gave in to demand. The shoulders are not overly large, no, but this helps if you layer with a jacket. The yarn is just thin enough that I think that's reasonable.

Rarely. We have to order our tailored goods something like six months out. Restocking is difficult. Jackets are suits are a growing part of our business, however, and this may change.

+1,000. HY prices are BEYOND fair. I'm constantly telling my friends who are trying to upgrade their wardrobe to check out HY. Phenomenal quality for the price.

Let's get another hell yeah for the fair prices. For the quality, both in cut and materials, it'd be hard to beat HY (even with a stick). Wearing my classic flannels right now and they are fantastic.

Glad to hear you're back in the saddle Jamison. I'm ready to order two more pairs of pants!

+1. Fantastic for the price.

Jamison, glad to hear from you, and hope you're feeling better. Apologies if some of us were a bit impatient, we just like your products so much smile.gif

Sorry to hear about the production problems with the overcoats and other blazers! I'm sure that's no fun ffffuuuu.gif

At the moment, HY is the only mailing list I've ever willingly subscribed to.

Just got my first pair of these trousers and already preparing for my second purchase. A high quality pair of flannels for under $200 is amazing.

So I got a few new HY trousers hemmed. Asked for a 1 1/2 inches cuff as well. Well tried them on last night and the pants still seem just SLIGHTLY long. There just seems to be too much fabric near my ankles.

My question is that can I undo the cuff myself and make it lets say 1 3/4 or 2 inches? Perhaps this will make them the perfect length. I don't want to take them back for them to hem it again and have me pay more. Or should they be able to shorten them more without any additional cost?

It'll depend on the seamstress, but if it was their mistake my seamstress would fix it for no extra cost.
