Go with the 30. Sizing down wouldn't work.

Hi HY. I'm looking at those pebble grain boots you've got on sale.

 

I'm normally a UK10.5. Based on your experience is your 11 about right for that? Also, what's the width on those beauties?

Thank you! The problem is my legs are slim and 12" thigh is too much. Should I go with 28 and let out some waist or it is bad idea? As I understand it is difficult for tailor to make thighs slimmer.

Could you please measure US made corduroy trousers through the crotch (not one leg but both together), maybe it'll make sense?

I'd go with a 10.5. A standard medium width on these.

Can someone tell me how the HY shirts compare to Ledbury in terms of quality and slimness? I have a Ledbury slim that fits pretty well but interested in some of the HY shirts. Thanks.

Ordered my first pair of pants from HY - light gray 4 seasons wool Italian cut. Wow they are fantastic, excellent feel and fit! Also, I ordered on Friday and they got here today. I will definitely be ordering more. Thanks Jamison.

I have read the last few pages, but cant seem to find an answer.
What's the difference in cuts between the Italian and American one?
Do I have to choose or does it depend on the pair of pants?
Are all the Made in Italy pants Italian cut and the Made in America ones American?
post #3054 of 4759

The Made in Italy pants have a slightly lower rise and tighter waist/hip & thigh than the American ones.

Ok, thanks, I think the American ones are better for me then.

For those who have the crew neck sweater, do you guys have an asymmetry from the left and right side on the seam where the sleeve meets the body?

I just received my 4th pair of HY pants - Blue Donegal Tweed Pants which is a great winter fabric.  It was the first pair in the American cut which I find to be a much better fit for my body.  In all honesty, I think the name is misleading because the American cut is still slimmer than any American brand.  

 

My only complaint with HY pants is that the pocket sizes/depth is not consistent.  I have Italian cut pants with different pocket depths and in my opinion, the depth in 3 of the pants is way too deep - my cell phone is hanging half way down my leg.  Does anyone else have this problem?  

 

Jamison, any thoughts on pocket depth and have you evaluated the consistency? 

 

I echo earlier comments that it would be great to be able to sort the pants by fit.

I actually love the deep pockets!

The name isn't American cut, nor does it imply that it should be cut as "traditional American". The only difference is that one is made by a company in Italy, one is made by a company in the USA. And you should keep your phone in your briefcase or jacket pocket.

The pictures on the website even seem to show the problem. I'm surprised no one has noticed this; it's driving me crazy.
