I don't know where you live, but yes, I'd imagine the flannels are too thick. The pair I have from HY are very thick and warm.

May I suggest a mid-grey color? Much more versatile.

Pretty sure he sells some "four season" pents in the Italian cut you may want to look at.

Seconded, depending on where you live. In Canada I skip the 4-season and go between twill, flannel and tropical wool over the course of the year. Speaking of which, have we yet established that the new open weave summer pants are indeed fresco?

They are pretty light and you can see through them when held up to the light (common to lighter fabrics), but smoother than I thought they might be. I've always thought that fresco was supposed to have a little more texture, though, and I have not handled any other fresco. That being said, they are not nearly as smooth as the Wool Serge - those are very nice and smooth.

Edit to add - if you live in a place that has seasons, go with lighter weights for the summer, and thicker for the winter. There really isn't a 4-seasons fabric out there that is appropriate.

What is the weight on them like? Do you know if they are thicker than the regular tropical wool?

Fresco is a bit thicker than tropical wool usually, and yes, is usually fairly textured. It's a very "dry" fabric--no sheen.

Win.

Thanks!

Got these pants from DC. They fit fantastic! Took them to the tailor and getting them back Wednesday. I'd certainly buy more from HY if he came back. They're ridiculously thin and breathable, perfect for 110 weather coming up.

 

Thanks Dex!!

So the 4-season charcoal wool pants is as versatile as it gets right? 

 

I'm trying to build up my wardrobe and I want a piece that can work interchangeably on most casual/ business occasions. I recently purchased a navy colored Incotex Ivory pants as well and I heard the fit is quite similar to HY.

I don't think charcoal is particularly versatile. Mid-grey is as versatile as it gets IMO.

Agreed.

Warm weather travels with HY tropical wool.

Is there any place in/around NYC where one can try any of the HY pants in person? Would be nice before biting the bullet and possibly having to go through the hassle of returns/exchanges.

You can try contacting Jamison. He's got a showroom that, in the past, allowed visitors by appointment only.

Depending on when during the winter, I know that he was traveling for HY business and then out of town again with family.

Thanks. Are you obligated to buy right then and there if you try on by appointment? Just curios about the details. Anyone have a chance to visit and can share some details?

I can appreciate being busy, but I never got a reply.  I did however, get added to the email blast list, so I know it was read.  It just wasn't responded to.  I am sure the owner is a great guy, and his clothes are awesome, but I expected a response.
