i have a ben sherman suit. navy 3 button with a faint windowpane pattern. flat front pants with a lower rise, somewhat narrow (but not super-skinny) lapel. it was my favorite suit PRIOR to discovering these forums. after learning more about construction and quality in suits, here's my honest opinion: for a relatively tall, thin guy, the fit (#1 priority for me) is outstanding. nothing has ever fit me right OTR like my ben sherman suit. if i remember correctly, all it needed from the tailor was a hem and a slight lengthening of the sleeve. the skirt of the jacket is a little on the short side, but since that's relatively "trendy" right now (for persons outside of this forum at least) i can get away with it. the fabric is kinda crappy--sort of rough and itchy. picks up lint like no other. that being said, it's held up reasonably well. after about a year of regular (once a week) wear, it still looks good. as good as new really after a cleaning and pressing. it's fused, not canvassed, but it seems to be a nicer-quality/softer fusing than some of my other cheapie-mall suits so the lapel rolls a little more naturally. it easily looks as good as my newer half-canvassed suits, and repeated dry cleanings have not done anything weird to the fusing so i'm not too worried about it. i had to have the zipper replaced on the pants a couple of weeks ago. no big deal. bottom-line, it's not the best suit in the world. for the $350 or so i paid at nordstrom rack it's pretty decent and still one of my preferred suits, although no longer my favorite. i'd say if you can get one for under $300 it's probably a decent buy. someone referenced h&m and zara previously--i can't really comment on the zara suits but i'd take this suit over an h&m suit any day. oh yea--the lining is a kinda loud burnt-orange color. it works for me, but if you're buying online and you haven't seen the lining you might be in for a surprise.
