I took them to my tailor for alterations and she was really impressed with the quality, mentioning that they were constructed better than pairs of Prada and Howard Yount pants I was bringing in at the same time.

Trousers fit truer to size than most, That is, a size 30 measures about 30.5" while most brands would measure 31". Tapered cut, medium rise, 7.5" is the standard leg opening on most sizes, I think some larger sizes are 8" though. As for the quality, they're some of the best you can buy off the rack; taped seams, split curtain waistband with horsehair canvas interfacing.

I work for them and the trousers are one of my favorite offerings. Best I can find anywhere for the price.

Yeah, sorry, forgot to mention that. I fit into 32 waists almost universally without alteration, but in the Ovadia 32s I had to have about an inch let out in the waist. There was at least an inch to let out. However, I think sizing up and having some taken out would've worked as well. If you have a big butt, I would recommend sizing up as I have a small one and these pants are slim thru the seat even for me.

How are their shirts? I am planning to buy some on sale, but they cost way too much when they ship it over to Europe. The price ends at $166 (original price: $85) because of the fees and taxes.

 

Do they actually mark down the value of the items or mark as gift?

Saw a few shirts that I liked on sale, so I decided to pull the trigger and picked them up. These were my first Ovadia & Sons purchases, and I went with a small based on the measurements on their site. I got the midwood brown gingham and the midwood brownwatch flannel.

 

Here's a few fit pics of the flannel. Excuse the terrible phone photos; I just wanted to get these up in case anyone was thinking of making moves on the sale.

 

The sleeves were a little long, but I'll probably just wear the sleeves rolled most of the time anyway.

 

Overall, I definitely recommend, especially at the sale prices I was able to pick up. Will buy again.

^ Nice!  Just picked up the french blue aztec weave sweater in a small.  Can't wait to receive it!

Here's the midwood brown gingham I also picked up. Forgive the terrible tuck job, I just threw it on to snap a few photos. I took one untucked to show how it drapes and to show that the blousing/bunching up at the waist (not sure what to call it) is from the bad tuck-in and not the true fit.

 

The sleeves seem slightly shorter than the flannel - haven't taken an actual measurement though. The fit is roughly the same, but like I mentioned, the sleeves are a little shorter which works for me.

 

My only problem is the collar size, but I have a huge neck (16-16.5 is usually comfortable) considering the rest of my torso (typically wear small in most brands), so that's a personal issue.

 

Again, super happy with the purchase!

How are their pants sizing? I wear a 27 in APC, 28 in W+H, 28 in EG. Are they similar?
post #72 of 89
Sizing is slim. I wear 31 in APC New Standards or Petit Standards and pretty much 32 in everything else. I have several pairs of 32s from Ovadia & Sons. Although I could squeeze into them, I ultimately had an inch let out of the waist. Next time I order pants from them, I will get 34s (and I don't own a 34 anything). So I would say strongly consider a 30, especially if you are planning on tucking shirts into the pants.

Bumping an older thread -

Does anyone know who makes these boots for O&S? All they state is "handmade by century old craftsmen in England" which might not be the best wording. smile.gif
