Something fairly basic, honestly -- navy wool, single-breasted. Maybe with wider lapels than what's widely available at the moment.

I've loved them too - I would definitely be a fan of something affordable and obtainable.

I have 8-10 of them, purchased over the last 3 years. They are awesome value. The silks vary a lot. Some are soft and buttery while others are dry and crisp. I happen to be wearing one today. This is my least favourite of the bunch, because I find it hard to get a good dimple on this one. So, the others look better than this:


Some are 3.25" and others are 3.5". I prefer the wider width, because I'm a wider guy at the hip.

You've specifically purchased 8-10 "Benjamin" ties from eHaberdasher, or you've simply purchased a variety of brands from the site?

8-10 Benjamin. No others from the site, yet. Though I am considering some others.

If that is your least favorite, I think it looks great.  Promising.   Do you happen to have any that you recently purchased (that have a chance of being on the site still) that you would recommend?

Aplogies for interjecting on the discussion of Benjamin ties.

 

However, I was wondering how are the quality of the Benjamin labeled suits sold on E-Haberdasher? I read that they come fully canvassed etc-but I am weary about the fabric used since they stated the suits are made with S.140's Which I read tends to wear out quickly.

 

Also where are the Benjamin suits made?

The only one that still on the site that I have is the blue equivalent of the following, which I am wearing today. I have both the red and blue.

The silk is very heavy and rich. Not shiny.

I have 2 fully canvassed suits, and a sport coat.

The suits are staples - I've had a plain navy since 2013 what I wear 1x/week. No issues with durability, though I noted durability might be an issue so I bought two pairs of trousers. So far the fabric is holding up well with no signs of wear. I was initially concerned about the Super 140s fabric (I would prefer a 110s for a staple suit), but after 100 wears it's looking good.

I have been wearing my Benjamin suit - navy super140s - for about 3 years, often twice a week. That's 3 years of extremely hard wear. I often work very long hours(frequently 14+ hours per day) and I tend to wear my jacket while sitting.

The jacket elbows are just now getting some shininess.The fronts of the pant thighs are getting shiney too.

I estimate it has seen around 200 wears. Overall, I think it's great value for money.I wear it a lot because I like it a lot.Even now that it's getting old, I find myself googling ways to remove shininess instead of buying a new suit...

So a fairly basic/classic single breasted notch lapel that hits mid-thigh? I was also playing with the idea of double breasted model.

I don't have the full inventory here in London, but if you'd like to see any particular ones in a knot I don't mind doing so and snapping some shots for you - just send me the links.

I'm actually partial to the double breasted too:



With back styling:




I also like the slant pockets instead of the box pockets with flaps around the waist/hip. It gives you a place to put your hands.




Here's some other ones/resources:
