post #3886 of 4565

liking the new site so far, and LOVE the new wool neat ties, they're really beautiful. I am however, disappointed in the selection of new jackets for the fall/winter season. In seasons past he's carried much more interesting stuff, like a few windowpane designs and colors other than blue. heres hoping he still has stuff waiting to get put up on the site. My buddy snagged a blue with red windowpane jacket on sale a bit ago, but they were sold out in my size. i would kill to get the chance at one again!

What's the difference between the new HY cut and the epaulet cut. I heard it's more slim than the old HY cut?
post #3888 of 4565
Epaulet has longer rises than HY.

HY don't offer a "long" fitting to their Jackets, which rules them out for me (a consequence of having ape arms :-)) Introducing a long fit would be a great step up, and I don't think I'm the olny one...

Has anyone tried the HY USA cords? How much do they stretch in the waist and the seat? Mostly concerned about stretching in the seat leading to more of the unsightly bunching as you look from the side, bunching right below the seat ruining a nice line in the back (is there a term for that, aside from crappy fit?).

 

I have one pair of HY pants in the old Italy fit, which has a nice line in the back. Alas, looks like he is no longer going to continue that fit.

I dig the new site.

Probably a dumb question.....could a woven tie be considered a poor man's grenadine?
post #3894 of 4565

From what I understand, grenadine is made on a Jaquard loom. I don't know if this means that anything that is not made on such a loom is not grenadine, or whether it is used exclusively for it or not. But I think it is a specific kind of weave. Anyone who knows more, please correct anything I may be wrong about.

Taking a look at each, they're definitely woven very differently.  But in terms of use, I see them in rather a similar way - especially as mine (two woven, one grenadine) are all solids.

It's killing me that the grenadines, donegals, and raw silks are 2.75".

Not to distract from HY's great stuff, but have you tried the tiebar.com?  They've got a variety of widths.  I'm a small guy, but I prefer 3" minimum.

As far as grenadine vs knit:

I use and love them both. But they are miles apart in terms of weave complexity. Grossa and fina, respectively:





There are also only two mills in the world, both in Italy, that still weave grenadine. Used to be more common, I think.

Just received my first pair of flannel pants. Great quality and they fit perfectly! Now off to the tailor to get them hemmed :-)

Tiebar's stuff is exactly what you pay for it - $15 tie. They wrinkle and stay that way. Stay away.
