post #3181 of 3611
I have three pairs of light summer hopsack pants and they don't hold the crease well. Even though they are relatively slim cut they feel very billowy and baggy around my legs. They wear cool but the are low on the formality scale. My fresco (suit) pants are much 'stiffer' and hold the crease very well.

Is the brown melange hopsack sold out? I can't add it to my cart, now that I've finally decided to pull the trigger frown.gif

Thanks.

Cheers,

Done - in the chart for that particular jacket.

Interesting.  I don't have any Fresco but want to try it, but my Hopsack pants seem to hold a crease well enough.  Here are some old photos for some indigo and wheat hopsack pants.  The blue jacket is from eHaberdasher.

man I gotta try these Bella Spalla jackets.
post #3188 of 3611
maybe you answered this before, but when you decided to make this next round of jackets 3-roll-2 instead of a 2-button, did you alter the shape of the lapel or alter the cut in any other way visually speaking? Just curious.

Regarding the length it does look like it is a little short - is this photo taken from the same angle as the 38S pic? Although the cut of the trousers you're wearing with the 36S also doesn't help with the overall appearance in comparison to the more fitted jeans you're wearing with the 38S.

Both pictures were taken at roughly the same angle by my very gracious wife on two different days.

Re: trousers -- yeah, cut on those aren't great. Holding out for the ones you're releasing in July. biggrin.gif

Jacket feels fine under the armpits, not tight at all. It's sounding like there won't be a whole lot of allowance to let these out at the waist though, huh?

Is there any information on the main difference between the classico and classico II models?

I'm interested in picking up a pair of wool trousers.

For comparison, I have a very early model of the Benjamin Lucente suit. The pants from that suit have great fit in the legs, but the seat is very tight. (Which is kind of crazy, because I have very skinny thighs and no butt).

Go with the classico or classico ii trousers?

It should pretty much be the same shape and design - just a 3rd (top) button barely visible in the roll of the lapel.

Correct - not much - just as you see the jacket inside. You may be able to eke out 1 - 1.5cm between the 2 sides.

Can I get some insight into the lapel width? I get that the 2" lapels on J. Crew Ludlows and the like are trendy and Benjamin's are more classical, but from what I can work out 3.5" (like on the nobile's) start getting into the "wide" category.

 

I've always really liked the "rat pack" look like on the Devore's Matt Bomer would wear in the show White Collar. http://www.theurbangent.com/2011/07/white-collar-style-fashion-guide-of-neal-caffrey-matt-bomer.html#. Most of those you can see are quite slim in lapel & tie. I do feel sometimes it's a little too slim but for the most part I've always like that aesthetic since I was a kid. For images 9 and 11 (hat & sunglasses, last photo) are the closest to the jacket lapel-styles on the Benjamin Sartorial's (little more than halfway from collar to shoulder). Is the slim tie he's wearing in those photos considered "out of proportion"? 

 

I'd love to get a Benjamin for the amazing fabrics and canvassing but almost all my ties are that size (~2") and I know the widest part of the lapel should about equal the width of the tie. Is a Benjamin not for me or can it still work?

post #3194 of 3611
You probably answered your own question: if you want the really skinny look, Benjamins are not really up your alley.
post #3195 of 3611

Yeah I was leaning that way, but if you notice images 9 & 11, the lapels are pretty similar to Benjamins but the ties are closer to what I have. Now I don't mind that, but I'm not sure if that's "proper".
