That's pretty great - it looks like he's listening to feedback.
post #3872 of 4612
I can confirm that Jamison seems to be stepping up lately! He has very satisfactorily addressed my previous longstanding issue.

I really do wish him continued success and would be in favour of mildly increased pricing to ensure adequate customer service.

Does HY have sales? If so when are they usually?

post #3874 of 4612

Excellent sales, and generally before the start of a new season. As he runs low on inventory, he drastically lowers prices to clear whatever is remaining. Unfortunately, I'm pretty standard sized, so I don't get to reap the benefits of this.

Exactly, very hit or miss. He often has "small" sales were he knocks $20 off a bunch of stuff but the real steals come on the final markdown stuff (keep in mind no returns on final sales). But, again, it's real hit and miss with a size here and a size there. I've actually gotten lucky twice but, in general, I find his prices very fair and offer good value at full price.

Same. I can't recall seeing a 32" waist on sale in anything I would want to own.

Same with 40 jackets.

The curse of being perfectly sculpted!

I have two questions:

1) Do you guys wash your lambswool sweaters at home as HY says you can? If so, any problems?

2) How is the cashmere from HY?

+1 to the bolded statement.

Jamison's previously said that he thinks that his prices are very fair (which they are, given the quality of his products), and as he only has relatively small product runs, if you wait until end-of-season sale time there is a very real risk that the products that you want will be sold out, or no longer available in your size.

I have not washed my lambswool, but it is very durable and is holding up well. Little pilling in high wear areas, but that is to be expected.

The cashmere is awesome. Very soft and definitely from a reputable company.

Just got a pair of the 3 season d-ring pants in mid-grey and they are great. The fabric is very hardy looking and feeling.

I haven't washed mine as yet, but I think when I am ready I might dry-clean it. Or I might just soak it in room temperature soapy water and agitate it a bit, then rinse and let hang dry.

The lambswool trousers are holding up really well, but alas, I can't say the same for the herringbone flannel pants (Italian). It's pilling a bit on the seat, and seems to be a bit of a looser weave. I'd do the lambswool again for sure.

Speaking of value, I thought I'd share this. The HY English Tweed trousers with wool from Abraham Moon are $195 here:

At Jcrew, their Ludlow suit trousers using the same tweed from Abraham Moon are $302:

Granted, JC has perpetual sales, and it might go even lower, but you might miss your size.

Spending $200 on a pair of trousers is definitely a big step for a lot of people, but when it comes to value, it looks like HY has it in heaps.

Edit: Epaulet's lambswool flannel trousers are $250, and their UK Donegal Tweed is $235. Howard Yount's lambswool is $195 (I bought 2 last year, but curiously they're only showing up when you search, not when you filter, at least for me). But they do have some more interesting fabrics sometimes, and the cut is different.

I guess for me at full retail it's better to get the HY and tailor, or at Epaulet wait for a sale and see if I get my size.
post #3883 of 4612

HY and epaulet has very different cuts, I personally prefer the epaulet walts as the cut is a bit more tapered and more flattering on my. But both of them offer great value, and are definite steals if you can find them on sale.

HY cashmere sweaters are excellent quality.

Do they fit the same as the lambswool sweaters?
