    These would be the ones to start with from Epaulet.

    no code. good sales and good price to start for the pants you get. know up front that the guy who runs HY, Jamison, is very poor at responding to emails. you can read a couple pages in the thread and get a sense for what you should expect.

    Noodles, I have at least 3 pairs from Epaulet and HY and they both make great trousers. If you go with HY, hope for a good fit and pray that if they don't, he accepts the return and you get your money back. I've never bad problems, but I got lucky with fit on the first try. His customer service is non-existent and he has quite a few people pretty pissed off. You will get much better service from Epaulet, but HY has a pretty large selection and they are on sale fairly regularly.

    Too many people trying to help Noodles. You guys are creating a sartorial beast! :D

    Can't wait to see the end result though with Formosa suit (wide lapels and extended shoulder), Medium Spread shirt with Tall collar, 2 inch cuff pants and the conquered (tie, pochette, shoes and belt). :slayer:

    True true.
    IF...the Formosa suit works out then we need to find another project user cus suits seem like the last piece of the puzzle. Am I wrong?

    your journey is just beginning. :)

    also, while HY does not return emails in a particularly timely manner, the orders are fulfilled and shipped in a timely manner.

    ...and if for some reason you didn't like the fit and don't want to play Return Roulette, you'd be able to sell HY trousers in staple grey in about 10 seconds.

    I hope that I have gotten down the basics down. This thread accelerated my development. I believe I do need to be more observant instead asking so many questions. I hope this is the end of my n00b journey. If the Formosa suits work well on me then I will file for a divorce with Zegna.

    Lawlz. Unless your name is Vox there is no such thing as sartorial nirvana.
