I love the grey serge but ffffuuuu.gif they're the exact same color as the flannels I ordered recently.

my navy silk knit tie got delivered today, can't wait to check it out. If its the same quality as the flannel pants, I'm sure I will be very impressed.

Could you post the fabric weight for the Moon donegals and the super serge? They look great, btw.
Cheers,

I'm interested as well.  I typically run pretty warm, so I'm looking for something I can make due with all year in Central PA.

Finally got my first pair of Howard Yount trousers back from the tailor, and wow... They are fantastic. I already knew they were very well constructed, but the cut is magnificent. It's the perfect mix of slim and classic. Now I really, really want to replace all my trousers. Sadly, I cannot afford to do it all at once and must consign myself to obsessively planning my purchases over a much longer period of time frown.gif

I am in the same boat as you. Exact same scenario. Right now I have 3. Ideally I want around 10 or so satisfied.gif. Which cut did you go with: American or Italian?

American. I prefer a slightly higher rise, so I stuck with those.

I haven't heard anyone comment on the more firm waistband in the American cut. That was a bit of a non-starter for me. I prefer a softer interlining. I suppose I could have the tailor remove it.

care to share? whats more firm about it? I'm confused

Though I have no experience with the Italian pants, this had me puzzled as well. Care to elaborate, sprout? The waistband is indeed substantial, but not more so than most decent quality pants IMHO.

Saying 8 is not too many doesn't imply that I think 7 is not enough, just that I think 8 isn't too many. Learn logic plz.

Jamison, I really love the new HY OTC ribbed wool dress socks, particularly the sizing options. Its great to get a high quality OTC that really fits my foot. I hope you continue to restock these in the core colors: navy, charcoal, med grey. Plus the plum color is pretty stellar too.

The American version has a stiffer interlining, more solid and structured -- I would describe the weight as "card stock." It's not a problem. Italian made pants more generally and HY Italian pants specifically have a pliable, almost completely soft waistband that I have come to prefer.  It may even just be the wool + curtain with nothing in between, but I have not studied the issue in detail. The American one has a bit of support sandwiched in there which, depending on your viewpoint, gives it a cleaner shape or an unwelcome feeling. If you like I will dissect both pairs.

post #2790 of 4550
I've actually taken out my American pants myself, and there is a white, sort of porous band of material in there that's a little tough. I personally don't mind it, as it helps keep the shape of that portion of the waist, but I can see why some people might dislike it. I'm sure I'd like the Italian cut without it just as much.

On another note, can we please stop responding to Jet, he's really just shitting this thread up with his useless comments.
