Howard Yount: Affiliate thread - Page 219

post #3271 of 4606
Actually the money has already changed hands, it occurred unsurprisingly at the point of payment.
The fact that HY is quick with shipping merely states he is aware and more than committed to his responsibility as a retailer of repute.

Mind you I have no commercial interest in HY.

Bear in mind as some posters have remarked earlier that he is a one man operation in the wider context of full time employment.
Be generous with our assessments of him for he has always been that in his interactions.


One good turn begets another.

Donegal Tweed - thick wool for cold weather
Lambswool Flannel - cold weather
Twill - cold weather
Classic Flannel - cold weather?
Nailhead Wool - ??
Tropical Wool - hot climates

Thanks Spurious.

Maybe it's just me, but Jamison has always returned my emails within 2 hours.

Has the cut of the Italian pants changed in the past few years? It's been a while since I've purchased HY pants, but when I did a while back I needed to size up. I realize there's now the U.S. cut, but sadly the U.S. tropical wools are all gone in my size.

Just throwin this out there, but if anyone is interested in trading me my 32 USA camel moleskins for something comparable in a 34 american cut hit me up with a PM.

Total Howard Yount noob here, and looking to pick up my first pair of proper dress trousers. Looking for a mid gray, year round wool. Any recommendations? What's the sizing like on HY trousers? I gather from reading this thread that the Made-in-USA pants aren't as slim as those Made-in-Italy, is this correct? If so, I probably need to opt for the USA trousers as I have somewhat large thighs. Are the waist measurements pretty close to TTS, or is there any vanity sizing going on? My waist measures 35".

Thanks for the help!

I'd go for their year-round Super 100's, which (I think) are currently mostly out of stock but hopefully will get restocked as Spring/Summer comes in.

The sizes Jameson posts are accurate, so you can see waist, thigh, etc... measurements for the pants. If you're worried about the thighs fitting you might size up and take the waist in. But in my experience with HY the USA-pants are a great slim fit with a little more room in the thighs than the Italian-made (I size up in the Italian-made trousers for that reason).

Good luck.

woohoo! just ordered the dark gray nailhead trousers.

Cant wait to pair these with me AE Walnut Strands, dont have any trousers to pair with ATM.
post #3281 of 4606

Been waiting over five weeks now for an exchange pair of flannels that I assume went out around 15 February. International order, I'm in the UK. Didn't get a shipping confirmation email from Jamison so I have no tracking. Have made numerous attempts to contact him to no avail. Will contact Parcelforce (presumed courier) tomorrow to see if they have anything for my address, but can't see how far I'll get without tracking.

 

Don't mean to add to the negativity, just reporting on my experience. While I greatly admire Howard Yount as a brand and can only respect what Jamison's trying to do as a businessman and clothier, his conduct in terms of communication certainly leaves much to be desired. Perhaps it's time he hired an extra hand, because this failure to maintain correspondence is frankly annoying, to say the least.

post #3282 of 4606

I'm assuming if you haven't received a shipping notification then its likely that they haven't been shipped yet.

 

I placed an order early-February and didn't receive a shipping notice. I sent an e-mail a week later and didn't hear back. I sent another e-mail and a PM as well, two weeks after the original order, to which Jamison replied and let me know the issue with my order. At that point, Jamison refunded my order.

 

I placed another order sometime after that, and received the shipping confirmation 2 or 3 days later, and the received the order within 10 days (in Canada).

If you have these tropical wool pants in blue, are they definitely blue, or more gray with a blue tone? thanks

The lambswool flannel are too warm for LA. You'll almost never wear them. Jamison told me the Donegal tweed don't wear as warm, so they'd be better for an LA "winter." Tropical wool wears very cool---comparable to linen. I can't speak to the others.

I believe Gray with a blue tone.
