Hi Ben -- when are you expecting new Benjamin suits? I suddenly find myself in the market for a staple navy in 38S.

If you can hang tight a little longer - I'm hoping by the end of July?

Are you planning to restock the Benjamin shirts?

Yes for sure. We were going to switch factories but now it looks like we will resume with SAITT - will keep you guys posted. For those who have ordered the Benjamin shirts before, how was the fit? We have 2 fits: B115 which is fitted with darts in the back, and B102 which is a full-fitting shirt (only tried a few of those - did not sell particularly well). I think moving forward we're probably only going to go with the fitted B115 model. Any feedback is appreciated!

I have what I believe is one of each--both are the same size, but one is noticeably slimmer than the other.

My biggest complaint with the slim one is that it is way too short--the thing comes untucked if I so much as breathe. And I'm a short guy, 5'8". This has relegated it to casual wear, but since I prefer a button collar on casual shirts, it almost never gets worn.

Wore the non-slim one yesterday. Love the soft collar on it.

Yeah I'm interested in buying a navy 41/42L suit as well but it's currently not in stock. So I guess the restock will be coming around the same time as the Benjamin sportcoats? I guess I'll just buy the suit when I look into buying a couple of the sportcoats. In regards to the Benjamin shirts, the B115 is better fitting to me than the fuller B102. The only problem is the length. It is too short and could stand to be at least 2.5"+ longer. Also, it would be great to have more fabric/patterns in the shirts to choose from.

I prefer the slim model. Echo aravenel. But it's not consistent. I have a couple light blues and the length is fine. But I also have an end-on-end one, and it's very short.

I vote for ginghams and Bengal stripe options in the slim model though.

Actually, I think the end-on-end is the one I have that is so short. Maybe it was just something with that particular model. Strange.

So those of you who find the B115 a little short do you find the sleeves also slightly short as well?
post #1585 of 2242
Not particularly, but I have short arms, so I'm probably not a good person to ask smile.gif
post #1586 of 2242
Yes the sleeves were short also on the one, but fine on the others.

Just to be clear, it isnt that the B115 was short. All the shirts I bought were that model. the end-on-end one was the only one short.

Thanks for the clarification - I'll have Colleen check the EOE shirts. Were they already short straight out of the box or did they get worse after washing? May be more a fabric issue than anything else... but I'll look to add to length of the body and slightly to the sleeves.

Not sure exactly about the timing of everything... still working that out. Shirts will definitely have more variety and patterns, and we'll definitely be cutting a lot more of size 15 - 16.5, much less of 17 and up.

It did seem to shrink a bit, even though I wash cold and air dry. But it was shorter than the others significantly upon arrival.
