How about dark green or olive, Ben? I really don't know how well they sell but have been reading lately about what good colours they are.

Does anyone have fit pics of the half canvas Benjamin sport coats? Interested in buying one but would love to see them in action first.
post #2988 of 3616

I was looking at suits and sport coats and don't see much selection for Benjamin in 42S, but the measurements look like they might be a good OTR fit. Are sales just slow for that size so you don't stock much, or are they sold out and will/may be replenished at a later date?

Here's an instagram pic of me wearing it. No atlerations done at all. It's a 38R and I'm 5'10" 158 lbs so I don't totally fill out the mid-section and can afford to take in the jacket slightly:

Aliotsy also has a few of our pieces and has instagramed a few shots as well:

Sorry we don't have anything else to offer in your size, but actually do have the solid navy, medium grey and charcoal currently in stock as well as a few jackets. 42S is not as common a size so we often won't have much to offer unless you opt for our MTO Benjamin Bella Spalla program which we hope to offer quarterly with the next one hopefully coming up in a few weeks.

Looks great thank you

Could anyone comment on how the Benjamin Sartorial suit fits? I wear a 40L in most suits, and am deciding between the Benjamin and the Suitsupply Lazio as my first suit. For a fully canvassed, super 140 suit it seems like great value for money, but I don't want to have to spend a lot of money on alterations as well.

Clarkson - go with the Benjamin. Better dude, better quality and a better product.

I'm also a 40L across the board, and SuitSupply fits me like a bag of dicks, so I have to assume that the fit is similar on you.

Coincidentally, I was in SuitSupply a couple of weeks ago trying out a bunch of their fits. I have noticed a couple of people wearing SuitSupply and they looked pretty great. I was considering buying a New-with-tags one for around $200 less than they sell for in stores, so I stopped by the Toronto store to try one on. While I was there, I tried a bunch of cuts and varying quality lines.

 

Overall, I'd say that the Benjamin is a more conservative style, but clearly superior quality until you get to the top of the range at Suitsupply.  If you are tall and lanky, or are in great shape and going for a very fitted look, you might find a slimmer cut (like the Lazio at Suitsupply) needing fewer alterations. But if you want to compare similar levels of quality, compare Benjamin to SS's most expensive offerings. I suggest ordering the two sizes you think you might be from eHaberdasher and seeing how they fit. You'll probably like one and keep it.

 

My Benjamin Sartorial suit is an older model - Granoro - and I understand that they've slimmed it down a little since then in the Classico II and the Nobile, but overall I found the Lazio to be a very very slim fit, and more fashion-ey (shorter jacket; slimmer pants, etc) than the Benjamin suits.

 

The quality is not comparable at all. SuitSupply Lazio I tried (from the blue line) had decent cloth, but felt cheaply made. Also, one shoulder was different than the other - it looked like there was more wadding at the top of the sleevehead on one side than on the other. The Benjamin suit I have is far superior in both cloth and construction. No competition there at all.

 

The La Spalla I tried was more on par with the Benjamin in terms of feeling better made and better cut, but the styling details are different - again, the La Spalla was more fashion-ey, but the I thought the shoulders were nicely done. The La Spalla felt nice and soft, flexible and light, whereas the Benjamin feels a bit heavier and more substantial. 

 

Also, a bunch of people have had the thighs wear out on their Suitsupply suits after a few wears (see that thread).

 

If I were starting a suiting wardrobe over again I would just buy 3 Benjamins - navy, charcoal, medium grey, and then build around that with checks, stripes, light blues and greys, etc.

I have both Benjamin and SS and I don't think the gap is that big, if at all. Canvassing advantage to Benjamin but fabric advantage to SS in my opinion. I have no issues with construction of either. If I had to pick between them I would simply choose the one that fit best.

Is anyone familiar with the sizing of the Sartorial suits? From the measurements, the 41/42R would fit me best in the shoulders but it might be a bit big in the chest. I usually wear a 40R in more athletic cuts such as the J. Crew Crosby but can wear a 42R in slimmer cuts like the Ludlow. How slim are the jackets cut? Also, does anyone know how slim the thighs are?

I've heard from a few customers say that the Nobile model is similar to the Suit Supply Siena model - anyone confirm this? If not any other helpful comparisons?

Benjamin jackets are pretty slim, although I have no familiarity with how J.Crew fits. Thighs for the Benjamin trousers are also fairly slim - roughly 15% of customers request switching for the larger trousers if we have them available.
