What's this about US versus Italian fit? Is it new versus old and what is the difference?

 

I can't see any reference on the site, nor can I see differences in the measurements when checking various models.

 

And that Hopsack looks great, Murls!

 

PS: Seen ref to "USA" for some but not the Hopsack or Fresco. Is it "very slim" versus "classic slim"?

USA = classic, more generous cut

Italian = slimmer seat and legs, lower rise. Not too aggressive in opinion.

New Italian ( you will see blue contrast stitching on belt loops) = very slim, narrower legs

I own all three in 34, so feel free to PM me for measurements.

My experience is that Italian 40 and USA 38 are about the same waist measurement. Which I think is borne out by the HY size charts.

Euro is spot on. I own the USA and Italian and they both work great for me. I generally wear the Italian fit as casual pants and the USA with odd jackets. The new Italian was a little too snug for me and I am pretty slim. I could have sized up I guess, but decided to just return them.

Finally got to take out the HY blazer this weekend on vacation; damn this winter.

Looking good.  I own one of his sport coats.  If buttoning stance was a bit lower, I would probably buy more.

Thinking about purchasing the tropical wool pants, but curious if they will be too light for a Chicago Spring (i.e. temps in the 50's).

I wear them in the 50s, but I don't get cold very easily.

Do you have to have the USA fit taken in much? The new Italian fits me perfectly but I'd like to order some USA fits as well. When looking at the size charts it seems to me that I'd have to have them taken in in both the waist and the seat. What's your experience?

I would order one size smaller in USA if new Italian fits you well

Whoever bought the USA fit light gray tropical Wool pants in a size 32, let me know if they don't fit you, I will gladly take the off your hands.

That would be me. It arrived today but required signatures so I need to have it redelivered. I'll let you know tomorrow.

So what's the standard operating procedure for returns? I've been sending e-mails for a little while now, and the 30 day window for returns is about to shut on me. Do I just mail the trousers back to the address posted in this thread? I'm a little wary of just sending them out if I can't even get my e-mails returned.
