Speaking of which, has anyone been in contact with Jamison lately? I've been trying to get a hold of him for over a week to exchange a pair of trousers.

In what way doesnt the american fit?

I'm curious about this too, would you like to share? I'm about the same height and weight, and for the 30 American cut I have to let the waist out the maximum it can go. I'm just wondering what size I should try for the Italian cut.

Is the American cut 28 too big for you?

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.


Interesting. Thanks for the explanation. I don't find mine uncomfortable, but this will be something to look out for as I plan to take in the waist a bit.

I happen to really like the stiffer interlining and more structured curtain.

Does anyone have a picture of the purple flannel trousers in the wild? I am trying to figure out what the color really looks like and what color shoes/shirts/sweaters I would wear with it.

 

Thanks

Jason

I have the lambswool flannel, I'll try to take a picture. It's pretty subtle, and only when you hold it against the grey or white you really realize it's not actually grey.

I bought the purple and mid grey, and they are different enough from each other that I am very happy with the purchase.

Tempted to buy the big plaid flannels but may be too warm for socal.

Need more crazy patterns.

It was too tight in the waist. I'm going to try and exchange for a size 30, hopefully that size will work a bit better.

i have a newbie question - i recently got a pair of HY Tropical Wool Pants, which i love. I had them orgially taken out, but now have lost weight. can i bring these back in?
post #2816 of 4635

Yup.

 

I just lost some weight myself and in the process of having numerous pairs of trousers brought in. It is a PITA but hardly unusual. A 5cm waist variation is not uncommon from year to year. The tailor grumbles but what are you going to do.

+1, but this is best to do with wool (cotton sometimes will retain the stitching holes) and best not to do it too much because you (eventually) will see places with wear vs. places with less/no wear.

At 5'10" and ~135 lbs, I wear size 28 in both the American and Italian cuts. I have to take the waist in a little bit in both. For some (but not all) of the American-cut trousers, I need to let out the crotch to varying degrees. It all really depends on your particular shape.

Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving. We've been deluged with holiday orders but are somehow fully caught up. For anyone looking for delivery by Christmas, I would recommend ordering by the 20th. The last day of shipping will be the 22nd, but orders would need to be in by 11 a.m. EST. Our shipping office will be closing then and not reopening until the new year.
