I have to take IN the waist on my Italian pants so no more American ones please. happy.gif

^ I have to take in the waist on both the Italian and American fits about the same (small) amount. The difference is really in the seat, rise, and thighs, not in the waist. I wear a size 28, incidentally.

For me the genius of the American cut is the cut of the seat/thigh along with the rise (I like a higher rise). Instead of sizing up to avoid unsightly pulling/gaping pockets, I can go true-to-size and even take the waist in a touch. And the wife tells me they're the sexiest pants I've ever owned, so there's that.

agreed. and the larger available size. fits great now for me. wish there were more summer fabrics available now for us in the southern hemisphere

We had a big run literally on a UPS truck on Monday when Sandy hit. Who knows when they will be delivered, but I'm hoping tomorrow. This includes a bunch of things, including donegal tweed (Abraham Moon), some fantastic year-round grey serge, and restocks of flannels, as well as more moleskin.

The HY headquarters in midtown Manhattan are right on the borderline where power went out, so I believe we've been spared, but I have not been able to get there yet to check. We do 100% of our shipping out of that office, so I hope you guys understand that there's going to be a bit of a delay in order fulfillment. I hope to reopen tomorrow and ship orders all day Thursday and Friday.

Thanks for your reply - everyone totally understands. Best of luck with everything and I'm really excited to see what your restock brings.

I want to buy 2 pair of Howard Yount flannels. I want to have a plan for what I can pair them with so looking for some suggestions. I was thinking a grey pair and a blue or brown pair. I feel confident that I could pair the grey fairly easily (blue jacket,camel jacket), but I am struggling with the 2nd pair. I realize there are probably endless options, but could use some help. Also should I go cuff or no cuff? Any help appreciated

Not knowing anything about what sort of jackets you have, it's hard to make a recommendation on a second color. What about two shades of grey, one light and one medium/darker? Light grey is a wonderful color for trousers, and darker grey is classic.

I cuff my wool trousers because I like the look and feel of it, especially on flannel. YMMV.

Honestly I find the brown Howard Yount trouser I have to be a fantastic color. I only wear with a dress shirt at least for now but brown pants + navy blazer is a great look and you'll avoid the security guard vibe at the same time.

Get a grey and brown IMO. If you are just starting off you don't want to have 2 trousers and both the same color but different shade. People might think they are the same. Just my 2 cents...

Gray is the most versatile. I really don't think you can go wrong with a medium gray and a medium-light gray. But brown would be a good choice, too. Coming it at it from the other direction, this might help you with trouser colors: http://www.styleforum.net/t/317329/jrds-guide-to-coherent-sportcoat-combinations

 

I like cuffs.

Just discovered Chambray Spread Collar Shirt - Blue on the website, but sizes from 14.5 to 15.5 have already been sold out.
The fit is stated as "extra-slim fit". How slim are we talking about? Are there back-darts?
Also, are there more solid-colored shirts with spread collars coming in? Or a possible restock of this chambray shirt?
Thanks.

I'm looking at finally getting a pair or two of HY trousers and hoping to get some advice. What material should I be looking at for odd trousers to be worn in an environment that's not particularly humid and ranges from 20 - 35 degrees celsius?

That's pretty hot. I would stick with four season, tropical, nailhead. I think four season is going to have a re-stock soon. The other two probably in 2013.

Two things:

1. Wore an HY tie to class today and a student liked it so much she decided she was going to buy one for her father's birthday.

 

2. The back seam shows through in the knot. Is this avoidable at all (I don't think I'm tightening it too much). Perhaps a different knot than half-windsor?
