I also have:

When I get the funds I am looking to add a light grey next.

 

Thanks clarksdb. Those navy flannels look real good, might have to get myself a pair. I just can't decide to whether get them in size 30 and let them out at the waist or just get a size 32 which will fit me and give a bit more room, but wear it with a belt. Just out of curiosity, what is your height and which size did you end up going with?

 

Did you get the same size in the classic and super 120's, how do do you like the classic vs the super 120's?

Well they do fit slim. There are two Howard Yount fits: Italian or American. You will see some are made in Italy while others USA. I will say they fit true to size though.

I am 6'0 and 155 lbs. I went with 32 in all of them, only alteration besides the hem being letting just under an inch out in the waist.

What is your usual size as well as your height and weight?

I like all of them but the classic is definitely more substantial, perfect for the northeast winter. To be honest though I don't think you can go wrong with any of the fabrics on HY. Just pick one which fits your climate well by looking at the weight in oz.

+1

Any chance of a Donegal restock soon?

Jamison, are you expecting to have any Made in USA twill (or non-flannel) wool trousers in the near future? Looking for charcoal and light grey and was leaning towards the Tasmanian wool but I love the cut of the made in USA pants.

The second HY tie I ordered.

I need to try the KW pointed knits, but I'm just so damned pleased with HY.

post #2706 of 4756
I read a lot of people say they prefer the American cut because of the rise but going by the measurements it is barely a higher rise. Am i missing something here?

Also Jamison is there any chance in the future that you'll have a cut with a 12 to 12.5 inch rise? Perhaps with the rest of the cut being the same as the Italian. I don't know if that is feasible or not though.
post #2707 of 4756
^^^^ +1 would love to know about having a rise that high as well. even 11 or 11.5 on a size 32 pant would be enough.
post #2708 of 4756
An American rise with the rest of the pants having the slimmer Italian dimensions would be absolutely perfect.

but the American rise is hardly any higher than the Italian cut at least by the measurement chart? Is the American rise really noticeably higher?

That's curious....is it possible that the size chart was updated? I could swear there was a larger difference there. I bought the American ones partially for the extra rise, but also for the slightly wider leg opening. I like my jeans tapered, but when it comes to trousers I find that it leads to more break than I like, no matter how well my tailor hems the inseam.

From what I've seen measurements wise online, it looks like the American ones have a slimmer leg opening.

You are correct. My bad.
post #2713 of 4756
It seems to depend on the pant and size. I just compared the Tasmanians vs the American Flannel in a 34 and the only apparent difference was 0.5" in the rise. Maybe I'll just go ahead with my order instead of waiting.
post #2714 of 4756
The Americans have a slightly higher rise, the main difference appears to be a fuller seat and thigh, which is really, really appreciated. i still have to size up, but it's at least possible now unlike in the Italian models.
post #2715 of 4756

For me, the difference between the American and Italian cuts is that the waist of the Italian sits right on my hip bones. The American waist sits right above them. The result is that the American cut fits better and are more comfortable when worn with a belt.
