The best option would to go with a slightly wider lapel than your usual and an accordingly slightly wider tie wink.gif

Then a nice Benjamin would be up your alley.

If you're up for that.

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?

I will have to get back to you on this... being here in London I haven't personally inspected the trousers but at least one customer has pointed out that the Classico II trousers that just came in fit differently (slimmer) than the Classico II that he'd worn in the past so I will have to have Colleen check. The Lucente trousers were the slimmest of all in the hips though. You may be safest with going with the Classico at this point if you have a choice.

Thinking about the MTO order but haven't purchased a Bella Spalla before.  Anybody know how these fit compared to a Suit Supply Havana? 

 

I tried a Havana on a few months ago, 40 seemed to fit me well.

My understanding is the Havana is quite slim fitting, in which case you probably should go with the 38 in the Bella Spalla MTO.

This sounds about right. I have Havanas in 38 and the are a bit snug for me. I have two Bella Spallas now and they are a more comfortable fit. I may take the waist in by half an inch. Or not.

Very true. Thanks for the tips, it's just hard to pull the trigger on a purchase without being able to see the style and try it on in person first. Can anyone provide some insight? :) Maybe the eHaberdasher himself?

I'm going to pick up one of the MTO.  It will be first and likely only for awhile summer blazer.   Would the Zenga Indigo be staple enough or should I stick with the midnight blue hopsack?  I plan on wearing it hopefully with grey pants to work which is conservative but could get away with odd jacket/trousers in the summer.

Yes, but it's not a lightweight fabric. More of a true three season.

Edit: I was referring to the hopsack.

Hard to tell from the pictures. I am struggling with this myself. I am probably going to go on the assumption that navy will be a safer choice, as will the heavier weight. If you need just a summer coat, indigo should ok, it'll be a bit brighter but then again, it's a summer coat. I am likely to wear the coat beyond the summer so the hopsack will be safer and a little bit more versatile.

(We should ask Ben to make an extra effort with the photos. I don't know what he could do but I wish they were better, perhaps better light, maybe a shot with the fabric slightly folded, etc.)

Agree that navy will likely be safer. But I am getting the indigo as the ultimate summer jacket (in part based on the helpful reviews of others who received the Bella Spalla v 2.0). 

 

I have the mid-blue Bella Spalla v. 1.0 as the ultimate winter jacket which I am able to wear into the fall and spring due to the colour.

 

If I have to meet with clients, I'm probably wearing a full suit anyways...

Do you mean that the hopsack that is a part of the current MTO (260G wool), or the navy that was part of the prior run (300g wool/cashmere)?

 

I would expect the current Navy MTO to be pretty light, no?

I think both weights lean more towards a true 3 season. I have the 300g wool/cashmere in dark Mediterranean, which is partially lined. At above 70 it becomes uncomfortable to me. While I can wear it in 80 degree weather, it's not ideal. Living in the Midwest, a three season seems more flexible because it rarely gets that warm here. The 260g will be a little lighter, but not a true lightweight summer coat. Nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, that's why I want the navy hopsack from this round. As I explained, I want a coat that works over a broad temperature base as opposed to a summer weight coat. With the pending trousers, I think I'll have a great three season suit with a go to navy blazer that I can wear 9-10 months of the year.

If I wanted a true summer weight coat though, I would go for the zegna check or indigo wool, which are 230g. Especially if you live in a warmer climate. When it's 80, the lighter the better IMO.
