Slimmer than the Classico II? Probably not... have you considered something slightly fuller cut in a 38R like the MaCo suits? The prices are great - just slightly higher than the Benjamins and really great quality/price/value. As of now no plans for MTM - seen too many problems with that and I'm afraid I just wouldn't be able to do it right...
Ah yes - we can usually do that if we have stock in the separate Benjamin trousers. Typically the customer emails us a request for this and we then check and if it's a go you would provide explicit instructions in step 5 of checkout in the notes section requesting the trouser switch and the size of the trousers desired. But first you need to let us know what exactly you need in terms of pant size and color...
The Classico II replaced the Classico. Only difference is the back collar got brought in to sit closer to the neck as a few people were experiencing some collar gap. The new model which I'm hoping to approve shortly will actually bring the collar just slightly higher as well, but at this point likely won't be available until this autumn. But once it's good, I hope to open the floodgates with tons of fabrics and jackets/blazers too.
Further proof that Marco Pescarolo makes for Kiton - haha!
For those not familiar with MACO, here's a write up from another respected forum member: http://www.styleforum.net/t/386970/largest-ready-to-wear-suit-brand-review-44-brands-by-parisian-gentleman-updated By Dirnelli : Maco is a brand made by Caruso (like its other brand called Raffaele Caruso.) It’s very nicely made, comfortable to wear, and very current it its styling. Fabric choices are beautiful. It’s just a shame that this brand is still confidential and not...
Here's the email that went out earlier: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/New-Arrivals--Maco-Caruso-Suits---Borrelli---Marco-Pescarolo-Trousers.html?soid=1101417638975&aid=pCisbNBHR5k
NEW ARRIVALS: Maco (Caruso) suits, Borrelli & Marco Pescarolo trousers. Fully canvassed suits from the makers of Caruso, Lanvin, Dior, Smalto, and more for starting at only $475! In the US In the UK
Fabric is about 275 grams for the Benajmin suits (basic solid fabrics). Lining is 55% Polyamid 45% Viscose and has proven to hold up well (at least no complaints in the past 4+ years).
Colleen tells me they are closer to a poplin than a twill, and are fairly lightweight and ideal for warmer weather (now).
Wish I could tell you for sure... although the model will probably be similar to the Classico II so not much fuller, although the trousers will certainly be a little bit more forgiving. Right now we're probably looking at September.
