Howard Yount: Affiliate thread - Page 191

post #2851 of 4626
Everything I've gotten has been shipped immediately, and arrived 2 or 3 days after I ordered. Jamison's customer service in my experience has been unmatched.
post #2852 of 4626

I have purchased many items from Jamison and most of the time they have been sent out a couple days after placing the order.

 

There have been a few times when he's gone MIA, but, as mentioned, he's running a one man show coming off a major storm that many are still recovering from.

 

 

Keep communicating via email (or better yet within this thread) and he will help you out.

Yeah, everyone needs to keep in mind that Jamison runs this one-man show in addition to his day job. If he hired additional support staff or decided to do Howard Yount full-time, I seriously doubt he'd be able to keep the prices so low.

I have never had a problem with shipping or communication with Jamison. And his products are amazing! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Wow, I always assumed he did it full-time...

Take a pair of your pants, and lie them flat so that the front of the pants is starting straight up at you. The thigh is measured straight across from the crotch seam to the edge of the outside of the leg (usually this is just underneath the side pocket).

MEGA response....

This is our 5th Christmas shopping season. Really, there's no perfect solution. We still TAKE orders, but won't ship them until after the holidays. In fact, we usually have an after-christmas sale, so a lot of business is done in this week. Shipping any later than we will be wouldn't guarantee Christmas delivery unless we were using express mail.

I'd order your sport coat size. While it might be possible to size down, especially when wearing without a jacket underneath, it will be tight when layered.

The HY shoes are very nice in person too; unfortunately for me, no sizes past 11. I was probably there for at least an hour, and Jamison couldn't have been more accommodating despite the fact that he is clearly insanely busy (he was processing orders basically the entire time I was there--a very impressive display of multi-tasking). Next HY purchase will probably be one of the F/W suits.
Thanks so much for the hospitality, Jamison!
P.S.
Please start carrying your shoes in larger sizes.

Thanks!

I do believe that I've dropped a few pounds since I've worn those chinos though, so YMMV. Also, despite having some room in the waist, the seat is perfect. I don't have much of a behind, but I think that sizing down and letting out the waist would have been problematic. Long story short, I would suggest size 32.

I'd go with 32, especially if you're ordering the Italian made pairs. For American, they are a bit more forgiving fit, but I'd say for customers who don't order they're usual size 95% size up, and only 5% size down.

Thanks for your input. Now I have to decide between the Cashmere gray and Herringbone. Leaning towards the later since I seldom wear suiting for work, mostly SC and for other casual pairings

Thanks. Glad you're so happy with them.

also, anybody ordered the suits?

This fall has been the hardest season we've had at HY. Our customer service, frankly, is not where it should to be on returns, exchanges, requests for information, and orders with problems. The major part of this is growth--the business has grown so much, and we're seeing such demand for our goods, that filling orders is taking so much time and these have lagged. I don't think it is acceptable, and I am working on what can be done in the new year to solve this. People who know a lot more about businesses than I do would probably see some textbook stuff here, but we're doing too much business to keep things the way they are, and our revenue is currently not enough to take on the kind of staff we could use. This is a very longwinded way of saying: it's not good, it will get better.

He is a top-notch fellow; I'm confident he'll honor your return if you contacted him within the regular window of opportunity. I'm not sure whether it would be better to wait until you can get a response or send them back with all the original order info inside the box, however.

I appreciate everyone's good will here, but I don't like to test it. It has indeed been a bit of a bizarre fall, and losing a week to Sandy didn't help. But life is too complicated, and things happen. It shouldn't get in the way of getting you pants.

Thanks for the update.
post #2859 of 4626
As I mentioned before, I wear a size 31 in J Crew Urban Slim chinos. I measured my waist and it came in at 31" exactly. This obviously fluctuates a small bit throughout the day. If I were to buy the Made in USA pants, I'm guessing I should stick with the size 32? I guess I can always bring the waist in, but looking at your sizing chart, it seems this corresponds to a 33.5" waist, so it seems they are vanity sized.

When I read that, I thought it was sig worthy.

What does the waist of the J.Crew measure? Also, rise plays a role in this, so I'd check that measurement as well.

On second look, I'd probably cut the "too." But thanks. smile.gif

Are any of the flannels worsted?

 

Also, I'll second the question above about how the weight and hand of the brushed twill compares to the flannel.  Thanks!

Anyway, maverick, usually flannel is reserved for fall and winter, and linen and tropical wool for the summer, as you probably already know. You're in a tough bind as to what to wear since you have to go in to those freezers from time to time, so just do what's best for you. Maybe consider a change of pants for when you need to go into the freezers?

 

Sorry, didn't notice his post count of 8.

I think it's a sensible solution given special circumstances. An even more sensible solution, though, would be to wear a slightly heavier oz cloth in summer that will keep him both moderately warm and moderately cool inside the workplace and out. This is better than flannel, which has a dense weave that will be inherently too warm when outside.

Jamison, my wait for an exchanged tie is approaching four months. I have sent no fewer than six emails and three PM's with no response. I understand there was a hurricane, but my issue arose more than two months before that. For the love of god, could you please email me back? This has taken so long that I am now out of country and won't be able to pick up anything from the post office for about 4 weeks. I hope this situation can be addressed.
