BTW, regardless of width, there is something annoying going on with the construction of the current models: I bought two additional sport coats, and they had the same problem as the first one I bought - the right lapel is a smidge narrower than the left one. My tailor speculates that this is somehow related to the collar cut too small. Re-pressing works to an extend, but I still notice it :(. 
Cool. Are there going to be any changes to the cuts/patterns on the sport coats?Wider lapels, perhaps ?
Any chance of ordering/restocking this "Dark greenish brown" Benjamin sport coat in size 40R?   http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-16595/Benjamin-Sartorial-Sport-Coat-cln-/Detail
After much experimentation, I concluded that the consensus on jacket sleeves is way, way too short for my taste. While it admittedly looks... okay if you just stand in front of a mirror, I just got tired of sleeves riding up my arms, so now all my sleeves go slightly past the wrist crease and into the palm, and it's fine.   Other than that, I could have saves myself a lot of time, if I had adopted the mafoofan ways early on - after several years of ultimately wasted...
Ben, the description for this jacket   http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-16608/Benjamin-Sartorial-Sport-Coat-cln-/Detail   says that the main color is "light brown". However, I've been staring at it and can't possibly see the brown - it looks positively olive to my eye. could you please say something about this (at least I'll know if I have some peculiar color blindness :) )
Ben, I would like to know if you have been using the same fabric for suits for the last few years?   I bought a charcoal Granoro suit a bit more over 2 years ago. The pants are a bit tight and worn out anyway, so I would like to replace them and wonder if the current charcoal pants sold are made from the same fabric. Thanks
I am curious about how durable should one expect the 100% cashmere sport coats to be? There seems to be conflicting opinions on if cashmere is more fragile than regular wool in general, so it would be good to know what are the expectations for this specific batch of sport coats?
 Yes, I measure them slightly below 8.5, but actually the left lapel is 0.5 cm narrower. I think it might be a defect or it was pressed this wa, i can't tell, but there is also a full 1 cm difference in the distance of the corner of the lapels to the shoulder seam
I just received my first sport coat. Overall, the quality and the fit are very good, and hard to see many easy alternatives at this price. My only complaint is that the lapels are a bit too narrow at ~3". (I realize it is hard to please everyone, but here it is, I'm voting for slight increase in lapel width :) ). Regardless, I'll probably get a few more.
