Damn, that was quick. Glad I pulled the trigger on them.

It's remarkable how fast a lot of his stuff sells out--he's got to get those production number up, there is clearly demand for it!

If you want an immediate response "support team" then you may have to pay for the privilege by buying more expensive stuff. HY is a lean operator and passes the savings along to the customer.

this is bullshit. tons of small, one-person outfits have exceptional service. i've never had a bad experience with HY, but trying to justify bad service because his products are 'cheap' (and they aren't that cheap) is nonsense. look at TOJ, or kent wang, etc.

I have an umbrella repair question. I've had one of Jamison's chestnut umbrellas for about a year, and I have really enjoyed using it. I think that having a quality umbrella is essential in NYC, as a dependence on public transportation often forces one to walk several blocks in steady rain.

Unfortunately, my umbrella was blown inside-out a few weeks ago by a huge gust of wind and several of the ribs inside the canopy were badly bent. Has anyone had experience with a good umbrella repair shop in NYC? How much should I expect to pay? If the cost of repair is more than 50% of the cost of the umbrella, I'll probably just end up buying a new one frown.gif

To be fair, Jameson has recently started doing mid-season restocks on terribly popular items. It's how I got some of those ever-so-sweet Donegal trousers this past winter.

And I'd much rather have HY remain a smaller operation and pass along those savings. I find HY to be a tremendous value and Jameson does take care of you, even if some patience is required. Festina lente, as they say.

+1 for HY

Unless something has changed, HY isn't Jameson's work, it's his hobby (or passion, if you prefer). That it's taken off is a testament to the value (not cheap-ness) that he provides. So we're not dealing with a "one-man operation" but rather one man doing something he enjoys on the side. If it means I have to wait a couple of weeks for a quality pair of pants or shirts or such, so be it.

Regarding shipping from HY:

 

There have been some comments in recent weeks about the time lag between placing an order and receiving a shipping confirmation from HY. In my experience, I've almost always received a shipping confirmation within 1-2 days after placing the order, and the package itself within 3-5 days. This has held true even for orders made during sales.

I have already received shipping confirmation the following day. I understand it can be frustrating at times, but I am willing to live with the current customer service because of the price and quality of garments.

Just pulled the trigger on the Tropical Wool in light gray along with two more pairs of pants and two pairs of socks, between HY and BB it was a good day today!

Some would say that you can wear them during any of the four seasons

This doesn't make it ok, it's still a business from the consumer's standpoint.

Ordered yesterday, shipping notification today.

I wear M in everything and L in a few guys. No Smalls ever but the size chart on HY said I was a small so I took a chance and it's perfect. This sweater is killer and a steal at the current sale price. Who needs Cucinelli?
