Also, on the Benjamin shirts you can tell the fit by the model number.
Model: Tropea B115 is the slim fit
Model: Tropea B102 is the regular fit

These are listed under Details for each shirt.

Yes - we probably should make this more clear on the site, although I believe there are currently only 3 fabrics in the fuller B102 fit.

I suppose they could be 1" longer in the length of the body, but I'm 5'10" and don't have too much of an issue with them coming untucked all the time - I do have to retuck every so often, but the other thing is so many men wear shirts untucked as well and I thought it was a good in-between length.

Benjamin is the best value I have found for suits and ties anywhere - hands down. I received 5 different Benjamin ties for christmas, and I found the materials to be top notch. 

I recently purchased a Benjamin suit from the buy and sell section of SF. I am absolutely amazed at the quality for this price. When people say that they compare to suits that sell for hundreds (or even thousands) more, they aren't lying. 

Next, I want to try their shirts. Based on everything else I own so far, I have very high expectations.

Thank you for the very nice post!

With the renewed shirt talks, is there any plan to offer shirts with longer sleeves? My monkey arms preclude benjamin shirt buying, so far.

I hate to say it, but it is extremely unlikely... what size shirt collar/sleeve do you wear?

At a 15.5/36 I'm probably SOL even if you add more sleeve lengths

Hello,

 

I just ordered a 41/42R Benjamin Lucente Black Suit and I think the shoulders fit just right but the chest is an inch too small.  Do we think my tailor can let out an inch or so or should I return it and get the next size up.  My fear there is that the shoulders will end up being too big.

 

Any advice?

Tough one. Usually the chest cannot be messed with, at least not by much. Best to consult your tailor, but I'm thinking it may have to come back and not sure the next size up would be a good solution either... but ask your tailor first. The armhole can be eased slightly... but not a whole lot to let out in the chest itself.

A sampling of new additions to the site, including Corneliani ties, Battisti scarves, pocket squares and ties.

By the way, all of the depicted above will be available on our UK site in the next few days... just in beta but hope to have a soft launch by the end of next week if not sooner.

What's the word on the blazers? I've been watching for what feels like a year now!

No word yet... edged out of the factory that was going to make my jackets by Giorgio Armani... tough to compete against GA!

That being said I'm going to the other factory where the suits have been made, but they are also always giving me the runaround. Not sure they can reliably make the Napoli soft shoulder model either... frown.gif
