post #3331 of 4635

Just got a spring '13 release email from HoYo.  Everything looks really good!

post #3332 of 4635
Just got it too, but when I clicked through, I didn't actually see anything new... Odd...
post #3333 of 4635

Yes, neither did I, in terms of pants, but there are definitely new socks and ties up.  maybe I just didn't notice them on the site before...

Ah. I was primarily looking for those sweet linen repp stripes he posted on his Tumblr a few days back, and I didn't see those yet.

I'm planning on spending some time in Italy this summer (Rome, with excursions to the country) and need to expand my wardrobe a bit to cope with the climate—since I live in the UK my need for summer clothes has been rather limited in recent years. What HY trousers would people recommend? I like the look of the tropical wool in light grey and Egyptian cotton in tan, would they be suitable? I have a couple of pairs of HY trousers already and thus have no concerns about fit etc.

Those new ties have been on the site since at least yesterday.

I think possibly since Tuesday, since I believe I (successfully) went looking for them when I saw the post on tumblr.

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.

 

Yep. Same here as well. Had several emails back and forth with Jamison yesterday. Can't say enough about him.

I'll be returning my things today as well and re-ordering others.

 

Jamison, thanks for all you do!

 

Back to the discussion about the new ties. They look wonderful!

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)

 

I decided to do a little more sweater analysis and I did a side-by-side comparison of the 1-tag (Lyle & Scott?) cashmere sweater with the Brooks Brothers made-in-Scotland.  Although the BB is "3-ply" and the HY is "2 ply with 2 ply yarn," the way they are woven, down to the length of the cuffs, is all identical.  The yarn appears to be the same thickness, woven at the same density.  With my eyes closed, I cannot tell them apart, which is not true of any of my other cashmere.  I would be surprised if they did not come from the same source.

 

Of the two I prefer the 2-tag version (Lockie?), although both are great.  I ordered more of them.  Second only to my old Ballantyne, it is otherwise the best cashmere I have handled.  The final sale price is killer.

+1 picked up the Navy cashmere on sale. It's a steal and the XL fits very simialr to the BB Large. I did find that the HY plain wool sweaters fit larger though, like BB.

No replies from Jamison for me yet. Favouritism?

post #3343 of 4635

Can anyone point me to details on the difference between the old HY "slim fit" and the new "extra slim fit"? Thanks.

post #3344 of 4635
Received my first HY order consisting of trousers in tropical wool (US) and four season wool (Italian), both in size 36, and love the quality. I'm 6' tall, weigh 178 pounds, have an average build, and normally wear a 35 waist. Based on advice previously posted in this thread, I ordered both trousers in a 36 and while they fit great in the waist (probably need to be taken in slightly), the Italian is too narrow and the rise too short. The US fits great everywhere, including the rise, although they reveal a very clear outline of my "member". My wife assured me that this is strictly due to the fit of the pants and has nothing to do with any abundance of girth (she claims I'm hung like a field mouse), and furthermore she says she won't let me wear them out of the house. Again, they fit great everywhere else, so I'm wondering a) if anyone has had this problem and 2) if its reasonable to think the drape/fit would change enough after hemming to perhaps make this issue less noticeable. I realize, of course, that hte latter question requires speculation. Finally, what is the general consensus with regard to cuffing these flat front trousers as well as the appropriate cuff width? Thanks in advance.

Entertaining read! I think the consensus is cuff em', if you like cuffs. Jamison's advice to me was that the lightweight wools drape better when cuffed. 1-3/4" is the width most suggested, maybe going up to 2" if over 6' tall.

In regards to the fit, I'd suggest taking them to an alterations tailor to evaluate the fit. If the alterations seem to major, I'd hold off on altering and try another size based on what you learn from your tailor.
