At this point, I'm wondering if in fact he really does accept returns at all, or is it just rhetoric?
He seems like a nice enough fellow and sure brings in quality products from all the things I've read here, but I'm beginning to have doubts about returns.

Others thoughts/experiences?

I'm sure that he'll be happy to refund/exchange.

Reply to your original Order Confirmation - I have good luck when I do that. He'll make good on your order.

He does accept returns. I've had the same problem in regards to getting in touch with him for returns. I believe I just sent the item once without hearing from him and he processed it (not sure if that is a great idea though)

As posted by Jamison regarding returns, I've sent several emails requesting one over the last three weeks for 2 pair of pants. They're absolutely wonderful in quality!. Much better than I expected! Kudos to Jamison in that regard to be sure.

However, they are the Italian made ones and waaaaay too small to fit the equivalent American size.

(I'm a dead 38" American. The 38" Italian-made is an American 36".)

Heck I'd love to keep them and just have them let out, but there's not enough fabric to let them out two full inches.....bummer.)

Actually the pants I need to send back, I didn't even pay for. He sent them without charge just to check the size. If he were deliberately ignoring me, he would be essentially giving me free pants. So, yeah I dont think it's intentional, he's just busy, swamped.

All this talk of difficult returns and Jamison being nigh impossible to get a hold of isn't exactly what I want to read, as I just received some trousers today that I'd like to return, heh. To make things easier for everyone, I'll offer them for sale here first, as a poster above did with an HY item they wished to return. They are the Tropical Wool Pants in Dark Gray, size 36, as seen here. Size 36 is listed as sold-out on the HY website, so I guess I took the last ones. Anyway, the fit doesn't work for me. They are brand-new with tags attached. I'll ship them free and even knock off five bucks for the heck of it, so $180 shipped Priority Mail in the U.S. PM me if interested.

Hope they work out for you! Which ones did you get?

Four season super 100s in mid-grey. They were a shade lighter than the pair you're looking to move.

 

For those looking, although I didn't pick it up, flyswatter was quick to respond and very helpful when I enquired about the pair he has available.

I got a question regarding the cashmere sweaters.
It says that they are for spring through early fall. What if I wear a shirt below it? Can I wear it in winter? I've always thought that cashmere was a warmth conserving fabric.
post #3325 of 4562
It really depends on just how thick the sweater is. I think you are safe layering, because when the weather gets that cold, you'll probably be relying on more than a sweater and a shirt to keep warm.
post #3326 of 4562
Ok, thanks for that. I was a bit confused by the fact that he labels it as a spring and summer fabric.

I have several of the cashmere sweaters.  I think they come from two different manufacturers.  The ones with two tags (the blue Howard Yount and the white cashmere tag below it) are a little lighter and thinner than other cashmere sweaters I own (vintage Ballantyne, Brooks Brothers, Doriani, Uniqlo +J). (The exception is the denim blue 3-ply which is thick and beefy.)  The sweater I have with just the single Howard Yount tag is a little heavier, fluffier, and not quite as smooth.  It is similar to the current Brooks Brothers made-in-Scotland cashmere.

 

Both are very high quality, although it is too early to comment on their longevity.  Based on my analysis of the attached tags and sweater style, I suspect that the manufacturers are William Lochie (2 tags) and Lyle & Scott (1 tag).

Jamison replied within 24 hours to my email request to return the pants, and they are now on the way back to him. I'll also add that when I placed the initial order, he shipped them promptly as well. No complaints at all from me on HY's service, despite some of the postings in this thread.

Same here.  I emailed a return request to Jamison yesterday and have received a response from him today.  My return will be going out tomorrow.  He has also always been great with shipments of my orders.

The first batch of sweaters had two tags and the newer ones have the single tag. There are some that appear of a thinner gauge on the website. Some are listed as being thicker (like your denim blue and others). Your guesses are good, and I saw a shipping box at his store with a UPS label, though it wasn't clear what actually came in the box and it might have been recycled/reused for a different purpose. So, you might be correct or might not be correct. To be sure - they are from a great name in Scotland at a great price via Howard Yount smile.gif (wearing my navy cashmere crewneck now)
