    Attaching the sleeves at a right angle means a very shallow sleeve cap. It will give you more mobility but the downside is that the upper sleeves will look messy with your arms down at your sides as there will be excess fabric at the underarm. This excess fabric may even interfere with the fit of the shirt under a sportcoat or suit jacket.

    I don't think @HammerHand's question is related to sleeve pitch.

    I'm experiencing some tightness under and above my arm. Ashish said he would be adjusting the armhole, but not the size of it.

    Having the sleeves attached at a right angle also really helps with the shirt staying tucked in because you can move your arm any which way without lifting the body of the shirt. If you want more room in the sleeve cap, you could try combining it with some shirring.

    Shirring won’t really improve the way the sleeve looks with a very shallow sleeve cap. There is a tradeoff here between mobility with a shallow sleeve cap/larger sleeve angle and cleaner looking sleeve with a higher sleeve cap/smaller sleeve angle

    Anyone else have some difficulty wearing the 100% wool pants? Does the itchiness subside over time? Any tricks to alleviate this?

    What sort of wool? If you mean a flannel, maybe buy a lighter/smoother cloth next time. Some people don't like the rougher ones.

    You can ask for a lining (or more lining, if your current pair are only lined to the knee), which will make your trousers hotter but obviously help. A decent tailor can also line unlined trousers for you.

    As those of us that grew up with knitted sweaters and woolen long johns knows: You'll eventually get used to it.

    Yes, it was the Mid Grey Wool Flannel pants. These are not lined at all, but are quite warm as-is, so I believe lining them would make them unbearable.

    I'll just tough it out! :)

    Any other suggestions for quality pants from them? I've tried these + the Wool Rich pants so far.
