I would get 2-3 pairs of grey.

I'd definitely go with a mid-grey over both charcoal and navy. Charcoal is hard because it usually looks like an orphaned pair of suit trousers. It is also usually too much contrast between the SC you would be wearing up top.

Navy is in the same boat, but less egregious.

Were it me, I'd go mid-grey for all three biggrin.gif

One can never have too many pairs of gray pants.

Especially with all the variations in grey HY offers. I just picked up a pair of mid-grey four seasons. Excited about adding to my grey HY collection!

I just had my light grey tropicals arrive the other day. It's an amazing colour.

Hoping to. Got to sort out a restock of the Marcoliani socks. Also, we have more of the HY private label socks, which customers have really taken to. I think they're great, but we don't have a silk in those... yet.

Well, you're in for some nice stuff this summer. I was just in Italy and finalized the spring 2013 collection. It's not huge, but we'll have many more of a great (nearly year round) navy suit, among other things.

We do have occasional sales, but markdowns are not a big part of our business. And I'm afraid we don't do any discount codes.

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, I think it's accurate on our end. And yes, I'd size up to the 36/52

I tend to favor seasonal fabrics, because the temperatures change so much in New York. But for you, I think you could choose from the tropical, nailhead, four season, s120s flannel, tasmanian, and classic flannel, with the last being the heaviest. Gray is easiest/most versatile, but I think a good lighter/medium brown pair could be in your mix.

I love those pants. For some reason, they didn't sell as well last year as I expected. I think some guys get scared away from "light" grays. To me, they're the epitome of summer, aside from cream linen.

A little update from HY.... I was in Italy last week working on our Spring 2013 and Fall 2013 collections. There's lots of fantastic stuff coming, including more suits, especially versatile basics like navy year round wool, a fantastic gray sharkskin, and navy flannel (a beautiful Loro Piana). But that's just the beginning. Also initiated restocks of some best-selling items, like our double monks, chestnut umbrellas, and newer English umbrellas. And knit ties. And pocket squares. And and and....

For those of you who haven't ordered one in a while, I think our latest pocket square offerings are among some of the nicest we've ever had. The workmanship is fantastic, and the materials both top of the line and unique: http://www.howardyount.com/collections/pocket-squares

Some odds-and-ends restocks of the Lambswool Flannel. We ran out of cloth so were not able to make as many pairs as I'd hoped.

^ Thanks for the heads up! I've been wanting the mid-gray in 32 and just grabbed a pair. My first Pair of HYs. I'm sure I'll be back for spring trousers soon!
post #2965 of 4526
Those are one of my favorites we've ever done. Great cloth.

Amazingly, in the same production run was the first of our spring 2013 pants. Some really gorgeous tropicals on the American pattern. It will be a couple weeks before they're up, but we'll have a nice early spring burst.

Awesome! I love the American cut, glad to hear there are more coming!

I knew it! I was going to post in that thread but didn't want to ruin the troll for you. Then people started responding saying you were such a great guy and then I got confused. Now I don't know whether they were playing along or you got them too.

Me too! I must say that before buying, I was skeptical of how I would fare in these vs linen (visiting the Caribbean). The open weave is brilliant. To top it off, they were virtually wrinkle free after 12+ hours in my carry on. I'll probably not bother with linen again.

Part of what I said was true and part wasn't. It's up to you to figure which is which smile.gif
