Not heavy canvas, but I wear a ton of cotton in Houston in the summer (and its hot as hell here)

I wear cotton all the time in the summer and have always been under the impression (perhaps wrongly) that cotton cloths are heavier in weight than similarly warm wool cloths. But maybe I just enjoy suffering.

The thigh and the waist are where I find the difference most noticeable, and the rise and leg opening are negligibly different IMHO. I had to take in the waist quite a bit, whereas the Italian pants only needed a minor tweak there. I'll probably bring in the thigh on the USA ones eventually, as they feel too roomy vs the Italian or Epaulet Walts.

My first Howard Yount purchases:




The made in USA pants seem amazing from all these reviews, but I'm set on pants.

The older shirts are roomier? It would be helpful if they had measurements up to compare.

Ok, I ordered 3 pair of pants and one sweater with a friend of mine.
Order confirmation last night and supposedly shipped tomorrow.

Very quick imo.

Just received my last HY order yesterday. Took 12 days from the ship date to Calgary (14 days from order). FYI, for the first time I paid charges through USPS to Canada. Worked out to about 5%.

I've PM'd Jamison for details on fabrics but I'm guessing he's a bit busy, so can someone help me out? I'm looking for wool pants that are year-round material. I work in the valley of Los Angeles and in the winter it goes down to 40 at the lowest and in the summertime it is routinely 95-105. I sweat quite a bit if I'm wearing wool pants in that kind of summer heat. I'm pretty new to this stuff so I don't know what all the fabrics are like. Is my list below correct? (I didn't include fabrics that included the weather conditions in the description.)

 

Donegal Tweed - thick wool for cold weather

Lambswool Flannel - cold weather

Twill - cold weather

Classic Flannel - cold weather?

Nailhead Wool - ??

Tropical Wool - hot climates
