Right. The company that makes them makes orders for different companies with different fits. I'm sure both stores provide a pattern which the factory then matches.

The same factory would imply (though not guarantee) similar levels of workmanship, but definitely not fit.

Bumping this. Anyone in the UK or EU interested before I return them?

I'm looking to return a pair of trousers to him and this doesn't sound good.

Instead of complaining here, you should enter a chargeback on your card.

Before you do that, reply to your original order confirmation. I find that I have good luck when I do that.

I'm a new customer to HY and my experience has been very positive.  I've purchased 5 pairs of trousers and two jackets over the past month or two.  Unfortunately the jackets were too long for me and had to be returned.

 

As far as the quality, design, color and fabric texture goes, I couldn't asked for anything more perfect.  They certainly exceeded my expectations.  If the proportions were better on me, I know they would have been two of my favorites.  I was devastated as they were exactly what I've wanted, except that they were cut too long for me. 

 

Jamison was quick to respond to my return request, and once received, I got a full refund within a day or two.  

 

I think HY's offering is excellent and a great value.  I plan to make many more purchases in the future … ties, pocket squares and especially Fall/Winter trousers!  Perhaps one day they'll grow their offering to include shorter length jackets and suits.  If that ever happens, I'll be buying those as well.  But for now, I can only wish that I were taller … their jackets really are awesome!

Damn, you must be short as hell. I'm 5'8" and the jackets are just on the border of being too short.

I wouldn't say short as hell, but I'm 5'5" with a skinny build.  The coat length wasn't as much of a concern for me, maybe only a 1/2" to 1" longer than would have been ideal.  The length probably would have been okay, but the breast pocket, armholes and side pockets fell pretty low on me.  So far, my best OTR jacket fit is a BB Fitzgerald 36S … I don't even have to alter the sleeves.  I actually think the length between the two are pretty similar, but the overall cut differences made me look like I was wearing a jacket meant for a taller man.

 

Which HY jackets do you have?  The ones I ordered both had patch pockets and I'm wondering if the HY flap pocket jackets might look better on me.

The only one I have is one of the blazers which does indeed have patch pockets.

Hi Jamison,

Could you post the fabric weight for the gray fresco trousers (I'm assuming the open weave tropical are fresco) ?

Thanks,
H

Would love to see some summer jackets. Here's hoping Jamison has some incoming.

Been an HY customer for a while (sportcoat, umbrella, etc), but somehow just got around to my first set of HY trousers (prior to this I've mostly bought Epaulet trousers, but was looking for stuff they aren't offering at the moment).

Got the blue tropical wool (Italy) and light grey tropical wool (USA) - and am blown away by how gorgeous the fabric is on these. Light as a feather, lots of depth, and superb construction & fit. Definitely coming back for more. Wow.

Any idea when the tie bars are going to be restocked?  I have some summer weddings coming up and my old tie bar is hanging on by a thread....time for an upgrade.
