Thanks! I'm extremely happy with the collection. So much of it is just spectacular. Sometimes the pictures can't quite capture it all. The wool ties, for example






Marcoliani offers that pair in a few other colors, but I didn't like them as much. We definitely don't carry their whole line, just the stuff I think is the best. These are great socks for a pair of chukkas, and I think the orange and green are fun colors. Orange is already going fast.

I sent you a message on the belt. Let me know what you want to do on the belt when you get a chance.

The fall stuff looks killer; already trying to figure out how to fund some pants/sweaters.

I had thought that our small would be a good starting point, but smaller is possible. I hesitate just because smaller usually = younger usually = less willing to pay for expensive goods, even if they are an absurd bargain. I don't think that our small will be huge on you, but it will be more like a traditional cut. If you are interested in a special order, I might be able to do it with delivery in November.

Good idea.

Any chance of a merino wool option for those of us that do not have $350 to spend on a cashmere sweater?

...just got my trousers in the mail - beautifully (and personally) packaged as always - and the fit is perfect. Over the years, I will order many more. Every HY purchase I've made has wowed me. I can't wait to see the upcoming scarves; I'm good for at least one, that's for sure. J, keep doing what you're doing!

I also see you added 31" waist on the Flannel Trousers. Is that waist size a new offering?
post #802 of 4759
I'd also be interested in whether sweaters will (ever) come in XS.

Two quickies:
(1) Do you know what trousers (color/material) you'll be carrying in 28 waist this fall?
(2) I see the dark brown suede belt has a brass buckle, but any chance you'll be carrying something like it with a silver buckle? I like the double o ring belt, but the color is too light--need something for my chocolate C&Js.

The preview items look fantastic as always. Keep it up!

I looked into some alternatives, not merino but super geelong lambswool. Great yarn, but still very expensive. A v-neck would still have been nearly $200 retail. On price it's very hard to compete with China, so we don't. I know that the cashmere is expensive, but relatively it is a tremendous bargain. That's a $700+ sweater from many retailers. It is the real deal. Excellent Scottish yarn (and a whole frickin lot of it) knit by one of the best makers in Scotland, with a contemporary pattern.

Thank you! You guys are why we do what we do.

Great looking stuff! Is it possible to get a length and waist measurment on the M sized sweaters?

Thanks! Here you go:

27" down the back, and 17" across the waist opening.

I just received my umbrella the other day, and I am in love with it. Having recently moved to Baton Rouge, I have been overwhelmed by the sheer amount of rain... the umbrella makes it much more manageable!

The fall sweaters look delicious by the way. Currently on my 'to-buy from HY list.'

J got a couple of quick questions for you: Any chance of a sweater that doesn't have an arm patch in the future? Any chance of an umbrella in a bright color? Red maybe. Can you elaborate on the belt adjustment? What happens to the excess material when you shorten the belt?

Excellent. Glad you like the umbrella.

Yes, we'll have some sweaters without the patches in a late fall delivery.

I could make an umbrella in red. I think more of a burgundy would be better, however, and we are doing a burgundy pinstripe for later this fall.

Think of it like a pair of pants. They come unfinished. You take them to the tailor and he snips off what he needs to and hems/cuffs to the desired length. With the belts, any shoe repair guy can unscrew the belt and cut to shorten.

Any guy.

Exactly. I'm always hesitant to recommend DIY because if a customer somehow manages to screw it up, I wouldn't want to feel responsible. But yes, not a hard project.

Customers have been receiving their fall items today and have been sending in some very kind words about our sweaters. I should add that these have been produced in limited quantities. A few sizes have sold out, and while we will be getting some more pieces and styles later this fall, I wouldn't recommend waiting too long if you are interested.
