Do you know if they changed the cut name to something else?

 

It seems there are some differences between the European and US sites.  I guess you could ask if you're able to order?  Otherwise check out the SS thread, and you might find someone willing to proxy.  I am in neither region, so order from Europe with a forwarding service.

Agreed, I have 5-6 pairs from HY and love them.  I think the whole operation is on its last legs, though, as he has gotten virtually nothing new in for Spring/Summer 2015.  A couple of pairs of fresco and tropical wool for the U.S. cut and not much else.

Is anyone familiar with YANKO belts?

I have a navy jacket hanging in my office just in case. But if I know there's an important meeting, I dress the he11 up in a suit. So far, I've been just wearing my navy beater trousers and have not had a surprise meeting except one time with the top man. 


They must be really nice. I just hate dealing with returns. 

Put it back in package and drop off at USPS. Piece of cake. Epaulet is great and makes it painless.

Ahh that explains it, I chatted with someone from SuSu and they recommended the Napoli fit for me. So I think I will just grab a navy suit there, wear my AE Delray's in Chili, a KW Salmon Linen tie and a white poplin shirt. Unless you have a different recommendation for a peach tie.

Great choice! What are you going to wear it with?

Take everything I've been wearing and just replace the navy trousers with the above brown.

We'll put the pre-order pages up in the next day or so and have them open for a very short period of time (you know if you want it or not... and we need to send those to production, buy the cloth, etc...)

 

 

 

 

What do you guys think?  Which are you most into?

 

:lurk:

I tried on the Epaulets at the recent SF trunk show, and neither fit has what I would consider to be a proper rise for a dress trouser.
post #23412 of 37396

^Are you sure one was a Walt? It is 12.5"...no way I could do higher than that. 

post #23413 of 37396

Sounds like you've got what you need Noodles.  I find my Howard Younts well-made and serviceable, though the made in Italy are slim in the thighs.  USA cut 30s fit me great. 

 

Epaulet Walts in 31 are roomier in the seat/thigh than I might have expected.  Might be one trouser where I'd size based on the ass and let the waist out.  Legs are nice but are tough for those of us with no quads/large calves. 

 

That said, I wish all of my trousers were Rotas or Pantas.  Not too tight anywhere, not too loose anywhere, perfect drape down the legs.

But pulled the trigger on Kent Wang. Light trousers Size 34.
