Howard Yount Tailored Goods

I must have missed these when they dropped, but I am sure as hell happy I came across them today.  Howard Yount is now selling tailored goods in the same vein as their neckwear and trousers - incredible quality at reasonable pricepoints.  F/W 2010's additions include a navy wool and cashmere twill jacket and a gray flannel suit.  Both unconstructed jackets are Italian made and despite lacking body lining (the sleeves are lined) are of substantial weight.  The key for me, outside of Howard Yount's stellar track record, are the details.  Both jackets are pretty much damn near perfect in my eyes - unconstructed, darted, patch pockets, two button, side vents and substantial lapels.  This wholly Italian style is not for everyone (our sack wearing friends stopped reading this post a few sentences back), but for my money it doesn't get much better.  I can only hope a double breasted version pops up sooner rather than later.



  1. And when you get hands on with one, we can talk again. Until then, do us all a favor and stop blogging on things you have no first hand experience with. You don't have to own everything you post on here, but it would be nice if you could at least try on the garments you praise on here.

    It's time to step up your actual role in mens style, instead of just posting whatever you see online during your day job.

  2. Curmudgeon- HY has no brick and mortar store so that doesn't really work in this case.

    But, you have some great ideas of how to handle your blog when it's up and running. Let me know when it's live.

  3. Goddamn is that criticism tired. I can't envision anyone typing "It's time to step up your actual role in mens (sic) style" with a straight face.

    I'm grateful for Sart Inc's product info, regardless of L.A.S's personal experience with the goods. More please.

  4. I, for one, appreciate the heads up on such an excellent deal... Word up L.A.S.

  5. Now...back to the product...I've never worn a totally unlined jacket (half lined summer suits, yes), and one benefit to the lining is that the jacket is easy to slip on and off and moves easier over your shirt when you twist, reach, scratch your armpit, whatever.

  6. Looks like they've got more stuff up.
