post #2236 of 2243

I just learned about eHaberdasher via this Reddit thread and was just about to pull the trigger on a Suit Supply Napoli in 34r -- I've tried it on, and loved it. My previous suits (a Joseph Abboud and a Hugo Boss, both purchased about 10 years ago) are pretty boxy on my very slim frame (140lbs, 5' 11")

 

I'm excited about paying just a little more for a fully canvassed suit and something from a smaller retailer/shop, looking at the Benjamin navy. Question is: should I stick with 34r? I don't know the exact chest and other measurements on the Napoli, but I do like how slim it is. I've heard the Benjamin is a cut a little more generous. Any advice on sizing?


Thanks much

I have a SS Napoli and a Classico II both in 36S. I would not say either is more or less generous in the waist or chest. The Napoli shoulders are a bit wider and the trousers I think are slimmer in the Benjamin Classico II.

To answer your question, stick with the same size.

Shoulders much wider and sleeves are wider as well at the end. The Classico II IMO is more formal and looks better as well on a slim / skinny guy. If you're athletic (wider shoulder) I'd recommend the Napoli. I got the 34S Classico II and a 36S Napoli. After dieting now I'm more of a 35 guy which fits well into the 34S as a slim fitting jacket. The Napoli now is too wide on the shoulder and sleeves. My measurement is 17" shoulder + 19" chest. There is no 34 Napoli and your decision should be decided on actual measurement of your shoulder. If it's 17.5"+ then you can still fit the Napoli. If lower than 17.5 stick with a 36 Classico II.

 

PS: My Suitsupply fitting suit is the 34S Lazio model. Suitsupply Napoli is both wider in shoulder and chest than the Lazio. If you fit their 34R Napoli which has 17.8" shoulder then definitely you want a 36 Benjamin.

Hey Edwardz. Not sure what you are nervous about. The suit will either fit or not. If you don't like it, for any reason, you can send it back for a refund. I own one benjamin suit and even at full asking price there is nothing comparable.

The only one comparable in the market is terms of quality are those massively discounted Paul Smith Byard made in italy ones that's over $1k msrp. Everything else $500 after discount is of inferior quality.

Anyone have a comparison between Granoro and Claasico II? I was going to buy a med grey Classico II in 38L but only the Granono model is in stock now.

The cuts are very very similar. The minor difference in the jacket is the back collar was just slightly adjusted on the jacket, and the trousers of the Granoro are a little bit tighter. Otherwise very little difference. If you're stuck on wanting to try the Classico II we can have one transferred over from our UK office as we do have one left here in medium grey 38L.

Thanks, that is very helpful. The Goranoro sounds fine.
