Whoa! Thanks for letting us know, I'd been waiting on those.

Jamison, what's your stock on the USA tropicals? Expecting to sell out quickly? I'd prefer to wait until next month to jump on them, but not if it means I'm going to miss out on them...

How is the USA fit vs Italy fit? More room in the thighs?

The USA fit is roomier in the waist, seat, and thighs. The inseam is also 2" longer on the USAs, which is nice if you are tall or like taller cuffs.

I believe the rise is also 0.5" taller on the USAs, which I prefer. You can compare the specific differences by looking at the different size charts on the website.

Yepp did the comparison. 32 in Italian and USA were very similar. Not sure if sizing down to 30 would make a huge difference.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Italian Tropicals. Bought a 32 in mid-grey, too tongue.gif

 

As an aside, I have several pairs of HY wool trousers and recently started hanging them up with these Clamp Trouser Hangers from TheHangerProject (http://www.hangerproject.com/closet/clamping-trouser-hanger-set.html). They work quite well for getting the creases out of my HY trousers.

Just kopped the mid grey and tan. I hope Canada Post doesn't hit me at the border... never bought two pairs in one shot before.

Hi,

need advice on merino v-necks sizing from experienced HY-ers.

I'm perfect in jcrew S slim, but regular jcrew S is blousing awfully. I'm wearing italian 46 in sportcoats.

Should I be ordering XS is HY merino v-necks - or it would be too short / small ?

What's experience in terms of shrinking or stretching ?

are the Tropical trousers USA in drk gray considered as charcoal? Thanks
post #3220 of 4520

I'm new to HY and considering purchasing a pair of light gray wool trousers for spring/summer. I primarily wear cotton or linen this time of year, but want to start putting some light to medium-weight wool in the mix.  

 

I've been looking at the Four Season, Nailhead and Tropical Wool USA (italy is sold out in size 30).  The Four Season seems about an ounce heavier than the Nailhead, and the Tropical USA doesn't list a fabric weight.  I'd like a trouser that would be pretty versatile … for work in Southern California, night in Vegas, walking around Paris or Madrid in June.  Would I be asking too much from one pair of trousers?

 

I'd appreciate any help I can get.  Thanks so much!

Don't expect any fucking help from the HY guys, either in this thread or in reply to a direct email.

A few points:

1.) Howard Yount is a one man operation,"guys" does not apply

2.) Jamison is constantly swamped with email because he offers a tremendous VALUE that is in HEAVILY in demand

3.) Stop crying like a baby and be persistent, he'll get back to you

 

I made an appointment to try on some items very recently and I can assure you, the Howard Yount guy is a great and very helpful person.

You're really better off researching fabric weights yourself (plenty of info here on SF and on the internet in general) and then comparing those weights to the weights of the various HY options.

Having said that, I own both Tropical Wool and Nailhead HY trousers, and I think either would be great for the kinds of warm environments you describe. I've been wearing both pairs during a very hot summer here (many 30+ [celsius] days) and while not quite as cool as linen, they are definitely suited to warm weather.
