Thanks.

What about ordering pants with a different drop?

Ah yes - we can usually do that if we have stock in the separate Benjamin trousers. Typically the customer emails us a request for this and we then check and if it's a go you would provide explicit instructions in step 5 of checkout in the notes section requesting the trouser switch and the size of the trousers desired. But first you need to let us know what exactly you need in terms of pant size and color...

Okay got it, thanks!

Ben, as you know, I love your Benjamin suits. I was wondering if you will have anything slimmer than the Classico II. The Classico II is similar to the Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald fit and is moderately shoulder padded. Are you planning on on having anything with minimal to no shoulder padding.

The best fitting suits for me are Theory suits, but their fabric and construction pale in comparison to your suits. For reference, I'm a 40 suit size, but my waist is a 32-33 (I lift and run a lot, so my thighs and glutes are big as well).

I'm hoping that there is a demand for slimmer suits. If nothing is in the pipeline, are you planning on doing MTM orders? Thanks icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Hi -- I'm considering purchasing a Benjamin suit -- I've been looking at the Suit Supply Napoli but didn't have a great experience in the store -- I felt like they were really pushing me into a 40R rather than a 42R. It felt (and looked) a bit too snug to me, but the salesman wouldn't relent.

 

I think the Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald 42R seems to fit me pretty well, and the comments from the above poster make it seem like a Benjamin Classico II should be a good fit. Does that sound about right? Also -- any chance that there will be something in a slightly lighter blue than "dark navy" in the future? Also -- I'm usually more of a 34 (maybe let out just a tad) than a full 36. Elsewhere in the thread it seems like it's easy to get differently sized pants, but any thoughts on letting out 34s rather than bringing in 36s?

 

Thanks!

The trousers are fairly slim in the thighs. If you have bigger thighs, I'd size up to the 36. If you have normal thighs, I'd let out a 34.

Slimmer than the Classico II? Probably not... have you considered something slightly fuller cut in a 38R like the MaCo suits? The prices are great - just slightly higher than the Benjamins and really great quality/price/value. As of now no plans for MTM - seen too many problems with that and I'm afraid I just wouldn't be able to do it right...

Sounds like you may want to consider the 42R and stick with the 36 trousers and have them taken in if need be. If you do wish to swap the trousers out you can either:

1. Request the swap at step 5 notes section of checkout (provided we have enough stock in the size you wish to have changed to)

2. Order the separate trousers in the size you prefer and then return whichever doesn't fit as well (again first check with us by emailing us at service@ehaberdasher.com to see if we have enough stock)

Oh also in regards to a slightly lighter blue - yes we plan to offer this as well before the end of the year.

Hmmm, I'll consider the MaCo. I would think if you made a Benjamin silhouette similar to Isaia/Kiton it would sell like hotcakes since that silhouette is so popular.

I totally understand about the MTM. It sounds like a pain haha

Isaia/Kiton silhouette is easier said than done!

Ben, you keep getting all sorts of requests to add MTM, half-canvased, fused suits with different silhouettes.

Can I just say that I think your existing Benjamin suits & sportcoats are just great? I only have one so far, a solid navy Classico II. I would have bought more, if only they were more regularly in stock & came in a wider variety of fabric. Keep it up!

Thanks! I do believe we willy finally see more fabrics this autumn!

By the way Benjamin shirts just arrived in NJ - hopefully they'll be on the site by next week!

Can't wait to see (and buy) the new shirts! Can you tell us a little about fit and fabrics?

Fit is just slightly fuller than the previous run of Benjamin shirts. Fabrics will be slightly nicer as well! And this time we'll have size 14.5 too!
