I have a pair of 50/50 cotton/linen Donnanna trousers from shopthefinest and they are fantastic. They are however much slimmer than HY trousers, several inches in the thigh at least.

Here's a comparison with the some HY tropical wool trousers in mid grey AFTER (significant) alterations:

What would you like to know?

They have a curtain waistband with a v split at the back, zip fly, 3 button closure on the waist, pick stitching on the pockets and down the side seam. The linen also gives the fabric a nice texture when seen up close. They are very lightweight without being 'flimsy' if that makes sense.

They are quite slim fitting though - to the point wear I wouldn't want my pockets stuffed whilst sitting down with them. However, they're far from uncomfortable. If you're used to wearing slimmer fits they should be fine. I don't consider myself to have especially slim thighs and they are a good fit on me.

Depends how the stuff is shipped, By UPS with the full value declared, very likely. I have had better luck with FedEx and no-one ever complained to me about a package that was sent with USPS.

That's right.

Only 0.25" in the size 30 though.

On another note, I've order this jacket in a 38: http://www.shopthefinest.com/p-56507-borrelli-navy-blue-sportcoat-size-44-us-54-eu.aspx

I was considering getting a jacket made in minnis 0520 but this should (hopefully) fit the bill as a summer sportcoat at a significant saving...
