A 32R from SuitSupply would fit me fine except that the sleeves are ~2in too short. Thanks!

 

I noticed the same thing and am also interested in knowing the answer.

Sorry I'm not sure how I totally skipped over this post without answering sooner!

We measure the sleeve length from the top of the shoulder seam - not from the center of the neck which is the way SuitSupply appears to do. Does that make sense? I've never heard of a sleeve measurement provided the way SuitSupply does on anything other than shirts or garments that have raglan sleeves.

Thisfits are you about 5'9" or 5'10"? The jackets look borderline too short to me (I realize this is somewhat subjective and more a matter of personal taste) - or maybe it's the angle from which the photos were taken?

Thanks, that's what I suspected, but wanted to make sure.

Hopefully works for you - this is the first time we're offering size 34S and 34R and were hoping to see a decent demand. Only a few sold so far...

actually it was the other poster looking at the 34. Could you tell me the difference between the classico II and the napoli fits? its not on the ehaberdasher site and benjaminclothing.com is not loading for me here in china.

The current Napoli fit has a slightly broader should and slightly shorter jacket with a more suppressed waist and slimmer pant than the Classico II. Also the Napoli has a softer shoulder than the Classico II.

Hope that helps!

When are these Napolis going live? And please say there are longs included in the first run biggrin.gif

Also, re that odd shoulder bump, my tailor said there was a tiny bit of odd extra material in the shoulder, but hte main issue was a slightly too tight back yoke. He loosened it and cleaned up the shoulder seam. All better now. Will post pics when I actually pick it up (I dropped off something else and tried it on on the way to a lunch meeting).

Haha, no ... I'm generously 5'7".

It may be the angle, but it could also be that my gut and considerable rear are pushing up the jacket. I've lost a few pounds since I took those pics, and the tailor didn't see a need to let out the jacket any when I took it to him a couple weeks ago, so maybe the length is adjusted accordingly.

FWIW, I'd say the grey is about where I like the length of the jackets I wear, and the navy is teeeeeeny bit short, but acceptable.

I thought they had arrived already in the US but apparently not yet... hopefully they'll land in the next day or two and then it will take some time to photograph, measure and get online... yes there are some Longs... will keep you posted!

Yes you can see the navy Napoli is clearly shorter in the jacket length... are the trousers a little loose in the thigh area (although, again I know this is an area of personal preference in terms of fit)?

One more question, have you mentioned what the sport coat price will be, yet?
