On late nights, when I've had 1 glass of wine too many while surfing the forum and once again dare to think "I like this enough, I could get in the business; I could make a go of it!" I remember all your frustrations over the past few years and talk myself out of it.

Anybody have experience with the Artini jackets? The price for the blue plaid one looks right but I'm not sure about the fit and quality as somebody who normally wears a 38R (17.5ish" S2S, 39.5" P2P, 25" sleeves).  Thanks!

Quality is nothing special as they are a washed cotton casual unconstructed jacket. They tend to be cut on the full side for the blue plaid one. It's great to wear with worn jeans, washed khakis or cords - not meant to be worn dressed with a tie imo. They're great for the price and style though - can't comment on how it'd fit you though.

Caruso suit
Benjamin shirt
Cheap tie

BTW, this is a 3-button suit. But it rolls so nicely, you can't tell!

Ben, not sure if I am measuring correctly, but if I follow the seam at the top of the notch, it is closer to 9.5 cm. I think most of my suits are in the 9 range, so this is a little wide.

Are you still planning another run of the Benjamin shirts - the slimmer version (which I think is sort of your "regular" fit)?

Looking forward to the new Maco/Caruso suits!

I'm playing around with a 9 cm lapel for the next round of Napoli soft shoulder jackets. The Riviera cashmere plaid jackets are 10cm - just barely within the acceptable range for my tastes but I think 9 is a good classic width.

Another round of the Benjamin shirts are coming soon but from a different factory - nicer than the Saitt made ones from the previous batch. The cut will be just a smidge fuller and the collar slightly wider than the previous as well.

Maco/Caruso and Pal Zileri are in the warehouse in London. I'll start processing them after I return from Belgium next week and hope to have them on the site by the 2nd week of June.

Got in some Pal Zileri Sartoriale too! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

New shirts sound great - exactly the changes I would have asked you to make. Looking forward to them.

Also anxiously awaiting the new Napoli suits. I think 9 is about perfect for the lapels. Those are going to be killer suits!

Yes slimmer lapels please. And slimmer shoulders and sleeves. And other colors like charcoal blue, teal, or some more unique ones :D

Hi,

 

Couple of questions. Found your site through Styleforum, and am looking for a suit. I'm someone who enjoys quality, but always searching for a bargain... ;)

The suits that I have had in the past are 42T, as I'm 6'5". However, I take a 38" waist and have rather large thighs (~26.5") which make buying suits OTR difficult. I know at this point that tailoring is a necessity, and am willing to spend some money on that. I

 

The two suits I've been eyeing up are:

 

1) Benjamin Sartorial 43L/44L ($525) - this has the same shoulder measurement as my current suit (19") and comes with a 38" waist, which is a bonus. I don't really understand the 43L/44L sizing though - the chest is 47", which will be a little large... but I imagine that is relatively easy to tailor. My concern is that it seems to mention slim fitting... and generally I have trouble with slim fit pants due to my thighs.

http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-16476/Benjamin-Sartorial-Suit-cln--43L-fdsh-44L/Detail

 

2) Caruso 42L ($685) - as above, same shoulder width as my current suit (19"), but is a 36" waist (but apparently is able to be let out 2"?). Will probably require more tailoring, but also mentions that it is a bit more of a 'fuller fit' which has worked for me in the past. However, this suit is more expensive, and will definitely require tailoring as well.

Would anyone be so kind as to help me out in deciding which to go with? Thanks!

The difference isn't much so I'd go with the Caruso which has always been some of my better constructed suits. Then again depends on which color or fabric you like better. The thighs on the Classico II are indeed slim which is perfect for me but that is another consideration for you as well.

We can usually switch the trouser for you with the Benjamin suit and we do currently have stock in size 40 which you can have the waist/seat taken in easily enough. Just something to consider! You can try both suits and see which works better...

Hey guys,

 

I wanted to buy a new classico suit in navy, either 39L/40L or 41L/42L, but I'm really not sure which size to get. The problem is I have this old 38L granoro model (slightly tailored) which is clearly too tight now (and pants way out of the question!), but this 42R (even though the length seems the same on both) Ralph Lauren Black Label (unaltered) feels a little big, especially in the shoulders.

 

I'm worried the 41/42 will be a bit big like the RLBL, and I'm worried the 39/40L will be a bit tight, especially in the legs? The legs are of particular concern since my legs are quite chunky due to bike riding (the pants in the pics are the RLBL's and I think they fit fairly well)

 

Would you recommend one over the other? I was leaning toward the 41/42L

Thanks!!

Are the photos you linked to the RLBL I'm assuming?

Well, why not try both the 39/40L as well as 41L/42L and keep one and send the other back? If the 39/40L jacket fits better we can switch the trousers for you to a size 36 if that works better for you - just let us know.

Question for Ben: Any update on the ETA for the less slim fitting tuxedo? I remember reading on here over the winter that a new version was due in spring but curious whether it's still anticipated.
post #2174 of 2251
Benjamin trouser basics are restocked (charcoal, navy, medium grey).

New Marco Pescarolo and Borrelli trousers will be on the site shortly.

Ma.Co suits coming next week, and Pal Zileri suits shortly thereafter.

I'm looking at these Incotex pants - can anyone tell me if they're poplin or twill, and roughly how lightweight they are?
