Sorry, if it seems so, but it is not sarcasm. It seems so online. It was with all due respect. When I wrote it - it was sincerely. I am a bit new to the PLETHORA of information on SF and having read so much about eHaberdashers collection and Benjamins etc and looking through their online thing, I was wondering which of those would be a good..
- SUMMER/ HOT WEATHER
Maybe he did answer the question from his side, but I did not get clarity. Let me put it this way - I was hoping that he might point out/ link to 1/2 pieces on his site.
Plus, I don't know his collection and collections.
The weight terminology is something I do not have knowledge of so it confused me more. The Suit Guides I have been reading on SF dont have some kind of weight 101 in them.
Again, I meant no disrespect or sarcasm - I just found myself a bit confused (maybe due to lack of expertise on my part) to dissect his reply.
Sorry for not being more clear in my earlier response. My wife accuses me all the time of being overly verbose and not being concise enough with words... haha!
For the Benjamin suits we currently only have the year round weight solids (other than the few winter weight 120's charcoal brown striped flannels). At present we do not have any summer weight suits for hot weather in the Benjamin collection. In the coming months we plan to offer a much wider variety of fabrics including lighter warm weather weights.
$525 is the starting price for the Sartorial Collection which is the fully canvassed line. While we feel this presents one of the best values in the market, the price tag is still a stretch for some. The word "Affordable" is a relative term and will vary greatly between different individuals. That being said we are planning to test a half canvassed line of Benjamin clothing at a lower price point of $325 - $395 which we hope will be within the reach of most customers who appreciate style and quality but don't necessarily have or want to spend $525+ for a suit.

If you were looking beyond the Benjamins for a light spring/summer weight, we have the following options in 38R - 40R:
I hope the above has better addressed your questions.
