You're going to have a tailor alter them (the pants are specifically designed to leave room for this) so don't fret if they don't fit perfectly out of the box.

Would I always just want wool? It's for consulting.

Their policy says that they don't issue refunds, only store credit. Is that true? I would try these otherwise.

They're still great, but harder to find on discount and they retail for considerably more than Howard Yount.

As well as HY I would also recommend Epaulet, in their Tapered Rudy fit (or Slim Walt if you're skinnier), I'm very happy with a pair of blue chambray trousers I got from them.

Hmmm. If you're counting on anything not changing all I can say is don't hold your breath.

Everything changes. The question isn't if by how much and when.

Cuts change. Fabric changes. Hell the stuff you buy will colour shift a bit over time.

A lot of the colors are available in one or two sizes because they sell out of the key sizes -- you might be able to ask them if they can order for you (if it's a non season staple fabric/color, of course)

 

Wool, to me, is the most versatile textile -- if you need to be "safe" and conservative go wool. A super 120's can be worn year round.

 

HY has more options and better colors -- for me the rise is to low -- at 5'9 it is probably not to low for you.

 

Either option is worth a try, just bite the bullet and order a pair. If it does not work out sell them on the mens classified or simply exchange for a shirt or some fall accessories.

I've been pushing Epaulet hard also. I also own the chambray and I love them. 

2' cuff with loafers paired with a midnight navy sc = teh look.

I retured something for a full refund -- let them know you are an SF member.

 

I don;t mind either way, I can always find something I want to buy credit or not!

Did you actually try on the BB Madison fit slacks?  I ask because you have described most of the pants you tried on as "nut-huggers" and too tight.  Also, becase the SA at BB told me the only difference between the Regent cut and Madison cut gabardines is that the Regents are more tapered from the knee down.  I have similarly found the Madison cut gabardines to be a conservative slim fit and nothing like the Madison cut suit pants.

Rudy looks to be all out of stock at the moment confused.gif

12.5" thigh on the Walt is a little scrawny for me.

Get them let out -- plenty of room and fabric is not as issue as long its a wool.

Yea it's just preferable not to have to do that, obviously. HY Made in USA fit me pretty well, but I have to get the waist taken in on those. The higher rise on these pants has me intrigued though...maybe I'll try on a pair next time I'm in NYC.

Got it.

 

WIll give HY a try as he offers a great pallet of colors/options.

 

Yea, the rise is what I love about the Walts/Rudys (and they are very well made). They look awesome with no belt and a sc. Highly recommend the blue Chambray and natural linen. loafers or slippers, 2' cuffs, creases and no belt = boss.

As far as I can tell the Rudy fit has to be pre-ordered using their MTO program; click on 'Mens Preorder Items' and you'll see all the fabrics you can order, and you can choose Walt or Rudy fit in any of them. The selection is a bit low at the moment but there was a lot more a week ago (I ordered a nice tweed window-pane and there were several nice Donegals), and I expect more options will come.

Ah excellent, thank you. Do you know what the thigh measurement is on the Rudy? Significantly more ample?
