If you mean they were made in Italy - correct. However I didn't see any blue stitching on the belt loops. New Italian are these that have 'USA made' label?

They are fine when sitting, even I'd say there is excess of free space. In person they are even bigger (on me) than on photo.

^ I think you would really like the new Italian cut.  Look for blue stitching on belt loops to indicate new Italian.  Unfortunately, HY doesn't specify in the description.  See example link:

Slimmer through the legs and you risk losing what appears to be a fairly clean drape. Of course, you're the one wearing them, so if you don't like the fit, maybe try the new Italian fit, as someone else suggested.

 

This.  There's no way I would ever describe the pants in your picture as "classic fit" or "old school"

Received some Spring pants. I think the Spring line with origin of Italy is made in the much slimmer cut (new Italian) even if there is not blue stitching on belts loops.


FAbrics great as usual, just struggling with sizing now. 32 American and 36 Italian seem to be best.

Does anyone have the Italian Cotton Twill Pants - Tan

 

How do these differ from basic khaki chinos in texture, weight and color?  It is a little hard to tell with the photos on the site.  I am looking for something a little nicer than the typical mall khakis that I can dress up or down and also something more tan/light brown

 

 

 

 

These look totally different (more like a stone/gray)

Washed Cotton canvas pants in Tan

Would need some help over here. I already own the Fall flannel 120s 270g/9,5oz + Winter flannel 100s 340g/12oz since earlier.

I'm thinking of purchasing the following two:
1. Three season super 110s D-Ring.
2. Tropical wool 110s.

Two questions come to mind:
1. Could you describe the two options I'm considering? What's the difference compared to flannel in terms of weight, fall, feeling, texture etc?
2. I take size 34 in the new Italian fit. What should I take in USA fit?

Thank you.

Re your second question, take a look at the specific measurements on the website, but I believe you should try a size 32 in the USA fit.  I should be able to tell you what works for me in a day or so, because I just ordered a size down in the USA fit from my size in the Italian fit.  Jamison told me that his customers often size down when going from the Italian fit to the USA fit.

My concern is the seat, for which measurements aren't given on the website. When purchasing the new Italian fit I have to take out the seat as much as possible and I fear sizing down one size would give me to little room in the seat area, although the USA fit is more generous.

I would appreciate if you could offer your thoughts on the difference in the seat area between the fits when sizing down one size.

My USA 38s are still bigger in the seat than my Italian 40s.

Thank you for clarifiying. That should settle things then. I'll be ordering four pairs I've been considering to purchase tomorrow, two Italian fit and two USA fit. Thank you.

My first HY order last night, light grey hopsack, mid grey fresco, tan cotton twill. Looking much forward to these. HY's must be the most complete range of dress pants. Period.

Is the light grey hopsack Italian or USA fit?

It says 'woven in Italy' but 'made in the USA'
