I am talking about wool trousers and all-cotton chinos.

Excellent necrobump. Gold star.

I especially hate when threads are bumped from so long ago that I see banned people I've never even heard of and wonder what they did to get banned.

So what's the deal? I shouldn't ask a question in a relevant thread whose last reply occurred long ago? How long is the rule? And where should my question go instead?

Agreed.

 

Can you provide details on that gold lamé tote bag in your avatar photo?

Sorry for the snark. It comes too naturally to me, and the internet brings it out.

Here's my take, I'm not sure how well it aligns with others.

If you are bumping a thread that starts out with a narrow focus, which is the same (or VERY similar to) your question, that is probably fine. In this case, the OP was pretty broad. Your question was actually about a pretty specific issue. (For what it's worth, I wouldn't wash wool trousers, so I wouldn't leave any allowance for shrinking.) The danger to you is that members who can answer your question might not see it because the title isn't of great interest to them.

The other danger in bumping a thread as old as this one is that the info might actually be outdated. In this case that is less of a concern (after all, wool hasn't changed its behavior in water in a long time, certainly not since 2006). Nevertheless, in other threads the discussion is often not just about Incotex, but about a specific model which might be outdated or even discontinued in the course of six years. There's no benefit in saving on total number of threads by continuing to use one like that.

My recommendation, unless there is a recently active thread that is actually on topic, just start a new one. Then the thread actually serves your purpose, gets you an answer, and then simply fades away after you post a "thanks dudes."

I've been tempted to buy some Incotex trousers from the Yoox online company but the sizing still confuses me , i normally can wear a 32" waist but the sizing on Yoox is in Italian Suit sizing and i can't find a definitive conversion , i appreciate manufacturers are all different but i would allow for this if i could work out the conversion , if anybody can advice it would be appreciated.

48 IT for a 32 waist is what I use and is generally accepted. I tried a 50 once but they were too big. You could also try 46 IT which goes to a 30 waist and have them let out.

48 IT is 32, but for Incotex, definitely go with 50. Many brands vanity size, but Incotex generally does not. So measure your waist, and buy that size.

Cheers for that, i think i would go with the 50 and get them altered i would be gutted if they were to tight.

Anyone has a pair of Incotex, and wears a size 76 in Uniqlo's vintage chinos?

 

My exact waist measurement is 31.5", so I'm wondering how Incotex would fit me.

post #28 of 34
Incotex varies a lot, they have many lines, so no one would be able to provide a solid answer IMO.

Thanks! Is there any way to identify whether it is incotex sartoriale or the standard line?
