    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Have you tried the Epaulet Rudy fit? Muscular legs are exactly what they designed it for.

    I was in the Manhattan store the other day and they told me about the Rudy fit. They make them by special order. I don't believe they cost any extra. Give them a call or an email.
