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.

Thanks for the reply. I just ordered a pair of Four Season Super 100s in dark gray. Seems to be about the most versatile fabric/color HY offers. My actual waist measurement is 35", and I sized up to 36 in these since they're the made-in-Italy variety. Looking at the measurements, I think they'll work for me.

I'm considering getting a pair of my first HY pants and size somewhere in between 34 and 36 in size. Is it better to buy something and get it let out or brought in?

 

Also, I think its been mentioned before but I wish there was a better way to sort the items on the website than having to click through each item. Perhaps sorting by available size or color would go a long way.

The latter.

How true are the colors on the website? I see pants described as navy that look gray, mid gray that looks light gray, and other various shades that don't seem to match up with the description. Specifically I'm looking at:

It's called dark navy but I'd rather not have pants that are too dark a shade of navy. The picture seems to me a slightly grayish navy.

Anyone figured out who makes Howard Yount's socks? Bresciani?

I suspect that it's Marcoliani, as HY used to carry a lot of Marcoliani and they still carry quite a bit alongside the HY socks. The two look very, very similar.

I've got quite a few pairs of Marcoliani socks (including some that I bought from HY) and I like them very much. They've proven to be much more durable than my Pantherella socks, which seem to become rather dry, stiff and lifeless quite quickly.

Don't count on it.

I found they wear out on the heel quickly though. Marcoliani that is.

I've not had any issues with the cotton ones - they've been very durable indeed.

One pair of my thin wool Marcoliani socks is showing wear at the heels, but they're a few years old now and have had quite a bit of wear, so I'm not surprised.

I have my doubts it's Marcoliani. I know Bresciani does some private label stuff e.g. H. Stockton in Atlanta. I don't know if Marcoliani does the same. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting a formal pair in silk/nylon blend, either HY or Marcoliani, for some summer weddings.

i had a pair of the HY cottons tear on their first wear; made me sad :(

 

I'm guessing it's just bad luck.

Anyone have any experience returning items shipped to Canada?

post #3299 of 4512
HY doesn't accept returns from Canada. What's the problem?

No issues yet, I'm just unsure about sizing so was wondering if I had any options should it not fit. The USA / Italy in the size I'm looking for should fit me as advertised but just in case I did need to size up in the Made in Italy (as many have mentioned) was hoping to exchange.
