Well gents, the suits are available. Not all have been received yet - we should receive 2 more colors in the slimmer Gucci/Jil Sander fit (our "Lucente" model) in the next 10 days or so. We also have not yet received all the suit separates, including pleated trousers and vests. The charcoal suit separates (jacket and pants only) ARE up on the site though. Thank you once again to all on this forum who have provided insight, constructive criticism and encouragement! You can see from the message we sent to our customers below - as promised our suits can be had for just about $500.00 with this special limited time promotion. We have sizes 36R - 48R, 38S - 42S, and 40L - 48L. Below I've copied and pasted the email sent to those on our mailing list: Dear Customer, On behalf of eHaberdasher.com and benjaminclothing.com, I would personally like to wish you a safe and happy holiday season! Although this past year has been challenging for many of us, we would like to thank you for being a valued customer. We optimistically look forward to 2009 and the growth and opportunities that lie ahead, and will continue to offer the highest quality clothing at excellent values. I am extremely excited to introduce this new line of luxury tailored clothing! Earlier this year we surveyed you, the customer, about what you were looking for in your perfect suit. From this, the BENJAMIN SARTORIAL COLLECTION was born. This new line of clothing represents an extremely high quality, wonderfully tailored garment at an incredible value. Although we are in talks with retailers interested in carrying our line, this clothing is currently only available at eHaberdasher.com! For a limited time, TAKE $100 OFF each Benjamin Sartorial Collection suit - with NO RISK! With this promotion we are also offering FREE RETURN SHIPPING for U.S. orders! Enter Code: BENDEBUT in the promotion code box at checkout to activate!** The BENJAMIN SARTORIAL COLLECTION is truly an exclusive line of tailored clothing. This is not a private label sewn on a mass-produced garment, but rather these are a very limited number of suits produced in small quantities and created with our own unique specifications and details. You will not find the same suit anywhere else with a different label. Garment Fit: Above all, we assert that fit is of chief importance, and have designed our suits to have, what we believe to be, an extremely flattering fit. The style is more European; featuring a higher arm hole and a more tailored, fitted silhouette; similar to Neopolitan tailoring houses like Isaia, Kiton and Attolini. Jacket Features: * Full canvas construction * Basted sleeves to allow for functional sleeve buttons * Demi-luna pocket reinforcement stitching * 5 Inner jacket pockets, including oversized chest pockets to accomodate a checkbook wallet * BoutonniÃ¨re loop under left lapel * Side vents & subtle pic-stitching throughout * Corozo buttons * Fabrics of Super 120's to Super 150's Trouser Features: * Triple button tab front closure * Inner curtained waist band construction * Rubber grips on inner waistband * Split V-back waist * Belt keeper loop * Separate suspender buttons * Coin pocket separator inside right front pocket * Lined to knee We also will offer suit separates in select fabrics as well as an optional vest.
