Send with a note. I have never had a problem.
post #4232 of 4659
If you guys could give me some hints on what to do about the fit of these pants I would appreciate it. I apologize in advance: the pants are almost taller than I am so I couldn't keep them folded to the right length without a safety pin, the picture quality is horrible, and these aren't the best fit pics. I just want to know if I should lose weight and size down, get them hemmed and tapered, or go for Italy fit instead, etc. Thanks.

Thighs on that fit are enormous. Get a different fit

Waist looks too small.

I don't think Italian will work. Best to stay with these pants and take them to a tailor to have the legs tapered. If you wanted to try Italian, go one size up.

Thanks for the comments. I guess what this means is I should try and lose 3" off my waist and try an italy 30 so the proportions are better and then tailor from there. Sucks, it really seems like I can't wear anything decent since I'm short and overweight.

I don't think you should say so. I do think however, that you might need to do some extensive tailoring on your pants to get them to fit well. Depending on your tailor, it might cost about $40 or so to get the needed parts fixed, but always remember that tailoring is an option. You're not stuck with it the way it is.

$40! I want to go to your tailor. That won't even get me the waist taken in and bottoms hemmed/cuffed.

Yount must have the widest selection of flannel slacks online but what's the usual thickness and weight for these?

I might have understated it, but I don't think it would have gone past $50.

You could always try Luxire.

Hi guys! 

 

I'm interested in trying a couple of Howard Yount's items. Seeing as I'm a unusual body type/shape, it might not fit well on the first time around. How is Howard Yount when it comes to returns/exchanges, especially if crossing the Canada-USA border?

 

Thanks!

The range is quite extensive, I haven't seen any site on par with HY when it comes to flannels. The weight of the fabric is usually stated for every trouser, in the product description.

No international returns, sadly. Fellow Canuck here - knowing your measurements and working with the size charts is the best you can do.

Or find someone in the US that could act as proxy/middle man. That way, if unsatisfied, you could return them since they were shipped to the US from the factory. That would be a solution until you at least know your size in HY.

Good suggestion!
