The quality is outstanding. Even my tailor made a comment about them. Of all the pants I've taken to him, he only commented on HY and Panta pants.

was not aware that you purchased pants from me, I apologize for the prior fiancee jokes and hope to sell you more pants.

Thank you for the apology. Though no offense was taken.

might be able to find MBT at the high end of your pricing range.

+1. I've got a few pairs and they are great.

As well as eBay, also have a look for trousers on Sierra Trading Post. I got a pair of made-in-Canada Riviera flannel trousers from STP a couple of years back and they are fantastic - beautiful fit and great construction. I think that they cost $90 + shipping at the time and STP quite often have sales or there are voucher codes floating around.

In terms of quality/construction would you guys say Brooks Brothers, Howard Yount, and Epaulet are all on a similar level.

Epaulet and Howard Yount (Made in USA) are made by the same factory, so the construction is equal.  However, Epaulet has a better fit, in my opinion, and very nice fabrics.

 

I can't speak for Brooks Brothers.

no. I have 4 pairs of HY flannels and they blew BB away in quality and materials

Therefore Epaulet > Howard Yount > Brooks Brothers.

So says the Transitive Property. :-D

Ha, fair enough.  My main preference is just the fit, which is specific to me.  There's a couple of details - like the belt buckle loop - on the HY that I really do like.

To those who say they prefer the fit of the Epaulet pants, is it mainly because they are slimmer?

Yes.  I still have to get Epaulet slimmed a bit but the HW made in US ones are really "full" on me.

post #29 of 33

My waist is 28, but my legs and seat are too muscular for the Epaulet Walt. So I greatly prefer HY's made-in-USA cut. I have not yet tried Epaulet's Rudy cut, but I will soon. It all depends on your body and your preferences.

post #30 of 33

Is there any place to get looser fit pants, perhaps even with pleats, at a price/quality range similar to HY/Epaulet?

 

I also have muscular legs and I'm growing out of my "slim-fit=better" phase.
