I've never bought HY and have been contemplating a few purchases........any incentive for a 1st-time buyer would be appreciated!

HY doesn't do sales--part of his mission statement if you will is that it's high quality stuff at reasonable prices, but that means things are rarely on sale--generally only if he's trying to clear stuff out, and then it's one or two things at a time.

Great stuff though, and very fairly priced, so don't feel like you're not getting a good deal.

Hi--
Never bought HY before, so I was wondering how the cut of HY trousers compare to Epaulet Walts? I noticed that the rise is a couple inches lower on HYs... For those of you who wear Walts, how to you like your HY trousers? Sorry if this has been asked here before, but it's a pretty long thread to scan the whole thing for this...

TIA!

I can only speak to the American trousers, but the rise is a bit lower and there is more room in the thigh and the leg. The leg is still slim, but it's a little more conservative than the Walt.

Quality-wise they are basically identical. I have said before that I think they're probably made in the same factory because the manufacturing tags inside the waist are exactly the same.

I have some Walts and the American made Younts. The quality is the same - the tapes are all seamed, the curtains are the same, waistbands are constructed the same, so yeah it's basically the same trousers.

The American cut is most conservative than the Walts, with, like someone said, a fuller thigh and legs. Personally, because I'm pretty skinny, I'll gave the legs tapered, but if you're average it'll be a conservative fit that I'm sure you'd be pretty happy with.

Does anyone else have a problem with pocket ears on their HY pants? The fit is perfect for me except for that.

Jamison,

Please make a light grey trouser in the American cut.

Thank you.

Maybe let out the seat of the pants a bit; should take care of that.

Is the photo of the mid-gray four seasons super 100s on the HY site an accurate representation? I got a pair of the super serge in mid-gray for Christmas, so I'd like to find something a little lighter to begin filling out my trouser needs.  Also, should I size up in the Italian made trousers?  A 34 in American cut fit nicely, so I was planning to size up to the 36 in the Italian cut.

^Yes, size up to 36 in the Italian-made trousers. I'm the same size and they are perfect.

Jameson, I'm curious about the collar point length on your button down shirts. It's hard to tell from the pics on your site.

In the future you can just search within the thread for whatever you're looking for. I can't imagine there are too many hits for walt. I've done this before when I need to reference a post I had posted.

I second this. The italian 36" fit true to size in the waist and are a slim cut. I have muscular thighs and they are slim but not insanely tight. I can also fit a american cut 34"

Any chance of congo wood umbrellas? Would those be solid stick?
post #2954 of 4500
I need to build/rebuild my trouser collection, and given the temperate NC climate in which I live, it seems to make sense that a year-round fabric would be most appropriate. As the name implies, HY's four seasons super 100s would seem to fit the bill, but as a relative newb I'm looking for confirmation that those would be the most appropriate, and if not what other trousers I should consider. I'll probably start with 3 pairs so any recommendations as to versatile colors would be most appreciated as well. Thank you.
post #2955 of 4500
I would start with navy, charcoal, and brown.
