    Congrats on the move - do you know yet when the UK site will be open for business? Will you post it on here or put it in your newsletter once you're accepting orders?

    I could do with a new suit and I'd love to try a Benjamin... :D

    Thanks! No more Lucente model, or Granoro for the matter. It has evolved to the "Classico" model now, which is essentially the same body - just a shorter collar for a snugger fit in the neck. They are in, but will not be online in the states until mid/end of next week. Only solid charcoal, navy and medium grey, but hope to have the limited edition fabrics from Loro Piana, Zegna, Colombo, etc later this year.

    Thanks for your message. If you'd like we can ship via first class mail or in a priority flat rate envelope and it'd be like $18. Not sure how much it'd be via First Class. We'd have to manually issue a refund after your order goes through - just send a response email to your order confirmation and we'll take care of it from there.

    No, slight price increase for the Classico suits to $525. Luxury edition suits will be $550 - $695+.

    I've been waiting to add to my Granoro so definitely looking forward to this and to try the roomier pants!

    My only issue with orders to Toronto has been that on top of the shipping fee I end up paying another ~ $50 in duties. I order a lot of clothes from the States and never get hit with fees with USPS. Can't explain it...

    Well boys the first shipment of restocked Benjamin suits are now online! We only have 3 or 4 of each size so if they sell out before you get to them just hang tight and we should have more in less than 4 weeks!

    Regarding international duties: unfortunately it is what it is. We're a real business and have to declare the full value of your purchase price as it is the law. If we did otherwise and got caught we would be heavily fined and be in big trouble and jeopardize the business. I'm sure other vendors fudge it but we are here for the long haul and want to abide by the law. If, however, you have a legal way of circumventing via a friend or relative or third party shipping company, that is your business. Naturally we would like to service our customers to the best of our ability, but legally.

    These are being shipped from New Jersey (USA). We're not yet up and running in the UK but when we are it will be a separate website, separate inventory, etc.

    Ben, is that a typo where it says the waist of the trousers is 38 inches for a 42L suit???? The Granoro waist was 35.5. Is this right?

    So for Canadian buyers this means the 18% Duty plus applicable Sales Tax could be added. I notice for international it indicates shipping via USPS/FedEx - please do not send via FedEx as they add additional extortionist brokerage fees ($50-$75), whereas via USPS no such fee.

    Here in BC we are looking at approx $700-705 including all taxes, shipping etc. Been quite happy with my last two Granoro suits though they came quite a bit cheaper (lucked out with customs).

    At $700...thinking....thinking - still worth it gentlemen?

    By the way we also did get in more matching odd trousers, and some sizes of the suits are not yet online including eu56R and eu56L. Plus we also got in some of the Benjamin tuxedos too.

    If you do need us to switch trouser size for the suits it is likely we can accomodate you - just email us first to confirm!

    Could very well be a typo (I would imagine). Unfortunately I'm not there but will have someone check on Monday for you.

    Hey Ben,

    I ordered the new suit knowing it'd be sold out quickly, but noticed that the Classico trouser waist size for 36S is a 31? I hope that's some form of typo because the Granoro's waist was a 29.

    Fourth! Looking forward to this. I like the low button stance and sort of RLPL look.

    EDIT: just realized maybe I should have gone with a L instead of R (I usually have 30+ inch length)
