Yep, I'll echo all of this completely, just wanted to give a bit of feedback for future runs (for the added data point, I'm 6'3"). I'll be curious to hear about the length from those who ordered jackets in a few months, perhaps my concern is unfounded.

 

Thanks for all you do, Ben, and I'm excited to see how everyone's jackets turn out!

I agree with this, I'm between a 41/42L and 43/44L but prefer a jacket of at least 31" from BOC or more as I am 6'2". I know the current trend is for shorter jackets with narrower lapels but I feel that it is just a trend and will soon fade out just like 3-button suits/jackets have in recent years. IMHO, there is nothing better than a timeless 2 or 2/3 roll button jacket that is toward the longer more conservative length with a wider lapel (10cm+). This has never and I doubt will ever go out of style.

@eHaberdasher any chance of running some pants on the same fabric as the brown MTO jackets? I think a suit like this would be pretty sweet:

I will add my support for lengthening the jackets -- I am only 6'0 but placed a pre-order for a 40L to try to get the longer/classic length, as I think anything less than 30" BOC looks disproportionate for my body.

One additional vote for adding length. It's what stopped me from ordering the gorgeous Zegna guncheck during the pre-order.

Thanks, guys for all of your feedback. I've just spoken with Italy and they said a sample would be in order if we are to lengthen the jacket (I proposed by 2cm across all sizes), but they said this would delay production by 4 weeks, so rather than suffering the delay we are moving forward with the current model but doing a 3 roll 2 as agreed and they are going to try to open the quarters slightly, but otherwise keeping the posted measurements/proportions.

In the mean time I'll have a sample made and continue to fine tune the product for the next production.

Please continue to provide any feedback and thoughts - if you feel more comfortable messaging me or emailing me directly please feel free: ben@ehaberdasher.com

+1 on making a brown/chocolate cotton or cotton/linen blend suit. I have wanted one for years like the one pictured above or like the one below but have been unable to find one that is of a higher quality and Italian cut. I recommend one with patch pockets, soft or unconstructed shoulders, dual vented, and half lined with flat front trousers.

I'm glad to hear about the additional length being considered in the future. I traded PMs and emails with Ben and Colleen about finding the right length since a regular in my size was too short.

 

I had to order a 38L in the made to order to get the right jacket length (although now I'll have to shorten the sleeves). I *might* be able to fit into a 38R in the future if the 2CM are added which would make it easier to pick a jacket up on a whim if I didn't pre-order the 38L.

Sorry the brown fabric sold out so we can't make making trousers for that fabric. Maybe we'll visit the idea in 2017.

Would pants in the Zenga fabric look right as a blazer suit?  If so, possible to make cut pants out of that fabric?

They'd probably be okay as trousers, but I don't have enough fabric to cut the minimum for these. Wouldn't actually be all that bold either - it's a very beautiful deep blue but not ostentatiously bright.

Almost made my first purchase then I saw it would've been USD 35 for shipping for a single tie... ouch.

Yes, unfortunately in the past we've shipped via first class mail and had things lost so we ship via USPS Priority mail which is significantly more expensive. If however you don't mind bearing the risk of loss we can ship via a less expensive service. Just email service@ehaberdasher.com and we can work with you on that.

Can you tell me where are these sport coats listed on your website?

I really like the blue herringbone (3rd from left), the blue solid behind it, and the solid brown on the opposite end.
