Yes will definitely be peak lapel single-button. Will have side vents - I know I know that's not traditional, but guess what - I like 'em and if you don't you can always have the tailor sew them shut - can't do opposite way around (unvented and then put in vents). Looking for grosgrain too.

If you're still taking input, I'd love to see 2 variations of the blazer:

1. More formal / professional - $300-$400 range

Soft shoulders
Fully canvassed
notch lapel
2-buttons
normal button stance
rear side vents
NON functioning button cuffs (for purposes of tailoring)
NO extra patch pockets on the chest (or ticket pockets for that matter)
Brown horn or a dark/monotone style button - no brass/silver/nickel please

2. More casual - $250-$300 range

Same as above, but to make it more casual:
- very soft / completely unstructured shoulders. Narrower if possible as well !
- half canvassed if it brings the price down
- more color options - preferably standard navy + a lighter blue such as this: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lydbxb2EjF1qeuobqo1_500.jpg

Not sure what else really makes a blazer casual - but I know I'm not a fan of the extra patch pockets.

SOLID NAVY WOOL/CASH BLAZER WITH:
A. 3 PATCH POCKETS?
B. WELT CHEST AND 2 PATCH POCKETS?
C. WELT CHEST WITH FLAPPED BESOM POCKETS?
If I find a nice lighter weight wool I'd definitely do A or B... probably A though.

B. with Horn buttons.

Thanks for your input. I can tell you for sure that we don't ever plan to produce a ready-made garment with functioning sleeve buttons so no worries there.

Don't know if we'll ever offer a completely unstructured jacket - we'll see though. Regarding half-canvassed garments... kinda goes against our dna unless it really is casual (big believer that full canvassed in tailored clothing makes a big difference)... we'll see but such a garment is not really on our radar to design/produce at this time, despite the immense popularity that such unconstructed casual blazers are seeing.

Good idea - will post some fabrics maybe some time next week. Things are a little hectic here so we appreciate the patience as we've got lots going on:

1. Producing Benjamin line (suits, sport jackets, trousers, shirts, ties)
2. Looking for branded closeouts/inventory
3. Revamping website
4. Establishing European hub in the UK
5. General day-to-day business
6. Moving/consolidating business location
7. Checking in on SF!

I'm sure I'm missing a few things too.... oh yeah keeping a healthy marriage and being a dad to 3 kids!

Congrats - when's the date and what size do you wear? I'm having some samples made and will make a small scale - maybe we can do something for you...

It's looking more and more like it's going to be B with potentially button options. I like MOP personally, but may offer option for horn and silver.

OK here's another question:

We're very happy with the Granoro model and will stick with it moving forward. We are going to give the trousers a little extra room in the seat/hips though (just a smidge).

Otherwise, we do plan to introduce a (what you guys call) 3 roll 2.5 jacket with more natural shoulders, but any input on another style or two to offer? I just finished paging through Paul Stuart's PC online catalog, which of course is filled with single breasted peak lapel garments. I have one that I wear fairly often, and while I like it I question how practical (or impractical) that might be... thoughts or any other ideas/suggestions?

I wouldn't do the peak lapels on a natural shouldered 3 roll 2. However, on a roped shoulder two button they would be great.

Second vote for roped shoulder two button.

In fact, I'd love it if the shoulders could pretty much look like this.

That is, slight roping with a more aggressive slope than the current Granoro (though now that I look my fit pics in the Granoro, it's already fairly close to this).

3 roll 2.5 with natural shoulders sounds brilliant.

I wouldn't go with a single-breasted peak. And I say that as a guy who owns one as his staple navy suit (which I hope to replace with a Benjamin...).

With regard for other sport coat & suit ideas, I recommend that you should have both with peak lapels with pick stitching and the option to make the sleeve buttons functional bc all of my suits and sport coats have them. Also, both should have double vents because this allows for guys like myself with an athletic build of broad shoulders and a small waist to have both a suit jacket and a sport coat taken in on the chest/waist to give it a tapered look. And make sure the sport coats have all the extras like the Benjamin suits do like the flower loop under the left lapel, full canvas, pick stitching all over and a tapered look like in the Lucente fit of the Benjamin suits. And on the suits make sure it has the belt buckle loop which is awesome. Thanks for all the continued improvements and expanding the Benjamin clothing line. I have been burned in the past by purchasing other brands like Hart Schaffner Marx, Hickey Freeman, Brooks Brothers, etc. and the fit sucks and non were full canvas construction and WAY overpriced, and the quality of the material was nowhere near what Benjamin clothing is. I will only buy shirts, trousers, Sport Coats, & Suits from eHaberdasher from now on!

Oh eHaberdasher if you can develop a green cotton sport coat like the one pictured below for the upcoming fall/winter it would be great!

B in dark blue hopsack with MOP buttons would be something I would grab.
