I cuff all of my "better" pants hence my HY's are all cuffed. I prefer 1.75 inches as I find 1.5 inches too skimpy and 2 inches too much. While your at the tailor show him the issue with the crotch and see if there is anything he can do.

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.

+1 on the 1.75 inch cuffs. It's what I prefer for pleated and flat front pants. And yes, entertaining read, Berob. rotflmao.gif

1.75in here as well. You really need cuffs on lighter weight cloths to get a decent drape.

+2 for me. My rough rule is to cuff all pants made from wool. I think heavy weight cloths look weird without cuffs.

You don't need cuffs to get a good drap on wool pants.  My tailor folds a couple layers of fabric on the inside of the pants which adds drap without the cuff.

Just collected my order from HY from the post office. Even with the vagaries of AusPost the package arrived in good time.
As usual, great service and excellent wares from HY.

I've bought a pair of trousers from HY before and, much in tune with the general opinion here, Jamison was nothing but an enormous help when I needed to exchange for another size.

 

With that said, this is only my third season or so that I've been aware of HY, so I am not familiar with its stocking habits.

 

Is it fair to say that the trousers I see out-of-stock in my size at this moment (particularly microdot grey wool) will not be replenished anytime soon---if ever? Should I hold out some hope on these, or find another pair?

 

Also, how do I get on this email list (regarding spring release) I've seen a few of you mention?

Can anyone tell me how the Sid Mashburn trousers compare to Howard Yount's USA trousers in terms of fit? They're both made by Hertling, are they? Possibly the same cut, or not? I emailed Mashburn for measurements, and the only difference I see — presuming they're accurate — is the rise; about 1" shorter, which is disappointing.

 

Off-topic, perhaps, but what's with the low-rise epidemic? Does it bug anyone else? Slim-fit as well. Are there better places I could be looking for fuller-cut unfinished RTW trousers, or am I best sizing up?

Either buy something from HY, or send an email via HY's contact form and tick the box to add you to the mailing list.

Jamison,

I heard a rumour that it's a week into April. This might be a good time to roll out spring jackets.

Hugs'n'kisses,
Everyone

Yep, bugs me, too. I had to return my recently purchased HY trousers because the rise was too low and the overall fit too slim. They were the made-in-Italy variety though, which as has been mentioned many times is more slim than the USA trousers. I'd still like to try the USA pants whenever the ones I want are restocked.

Since when is 10+ inches considered low rise?
