I'm probably an anomaly since I'm located in tropical Florida where our "winter" equals the rest of the countries' Fall + humidity, but I want half-lined. The extra breath'ability is almost a requirement. In my experience, the lining matters here too; good quality silk or cupro bemberg tend to breathe better with full linings than other stuff (it's sad what I've seen some otherwise nice pieces lined with - poly, really?).

I think what I'm saying is 1/2 lined for me is preferred, but full lining is OK too if it's still nice and breathable; anything that traps heat is a no-no here even for winter stuff. And, now that I think about it, if you're really trying to stay warm in your dress jacket up north, you should probably be adding an overcoat instead. End ramble.

Ben,

Ok when you say that you are just going ahead and cutting do you mean that you are just going ahead and ordering a batch of the sport coats and suits instead of taking pre-orders? And if so have you already made that batch order? Also when you say that you can only order 8-12 pieces do you mean that you can only get 8-12 pieces per size or total over all sizes and do you mean that you can only get 8-12 pieces per batch order or total and then you can't get any more pieces in ever in the future? If that's the case PLEASE get in sizes of 40L's in. I will buy them up in a hurry!

Voting for half-lined.

FWIW, I'm happy with the Classico. I understand it didn't work out for some people, but I don't get the sense that most people had fit issues, only a select few who knew they could offer feedback here.

In all honesty though, I would just get the sleeves and pants shortened. Hard to tell what you need done in the back since, as EMartNJ already noted, you really seem to retract your shoulders quite a bit when you stand. Is that your normal posture? Does the bowing go away if you draw your shoulders forward?

 

Yeah I think the reason for the bowing was my abnormal posture when standing in front of the camera, drawing my shoulders too far back to try and get a straight picture, not that it's too tight in the chest.  I think I have an odd posture anyway which brings my neck forward too far compared with my back which causes ripples and space between my shoulders and the middle space of the suit.

Had the back pulled in a little, sleeves shortened and the paints tapered (yeah there is some asymmetry in the folds in the back, eh cheap tailors..).. Loving the suit now,

 

 

 

 

 

, need a charcoal 38L in granoro, any production plans??

Hello z341

Which model of the suit that you were dressing in the photos? Is it Lucente or Classico?

Any idea when you expect a restock of the Navy Classico in 43/44R?  I'll be picking up my classico tomorrow from my tailor.  Quite impressed with the fit so I'd love to start expanding my collection!

Hello Ben.

Could you please finish the cuff (non-working cuff) when I order your sartorial suit online? I cannot trust any tailors in my country because they cannot make handmade nice stitch at the cuffs.

Sorry for the delay in response...

Did not take pre-orders... did order a few 40L's. When I say only order 8-12 pieces that is in TOTAL across a few different sizes.

Haven't gone fabric hunting in a bit, but yes we do plan to offer some pinstripes in the future - not in the near future though.

No plan on a re-order of the Classico any time soon in navy 43/44R as we have several in the Granoro and they are virtually identical. Have you tried the Granoro? Probably worth a shot if you like the Classico.

Yes, we can do this for you no problem. But all it is is having the buttons sewn on - are you sure you wouldn't want to first make sure the sleeves do not need to be adjusted (shortened or lengthened) before having a tailor or seamstress sew on the buttons since you're not going to have them made functional?

Has anyone had issues with the cut of the Classico trousers? I found the Maestro pants (size 38) to be slightly too snug in the seat, but the legs were fine. I recently had to return a pair of size 40 Classicos because, while the seat was fine, they were FAR too tight in the thighs - even slimmer than my (size 38) J. Crew Ludlow trousers. Are they supposed to be so skinny, or did I get a mislabeled pair of pants?
