    Nice work. Just in time for the cooler weather, too.

    Soft shoulders with no padding as well. All for a hefty sum of $14

    Is that the Granoro model Benjamin? Any trouble with the collar height? I assume it's medium gray, which is great.

    Yes, it's the Granoro and I've not had the collar trouble that some have reported. Fitted well right off the bat.

    Looks great. I'm under the impression that my shoulder stance doesn't quite match up with the cut, but I raised mine as much as possible as it's manageable.

    My theory on the Bennies out the window then...

    I have some fit issues with those. I have the Lucente in 36R. Barely touch it. I get lapel gap as well as height issues plus the shoulders sit very square.

    The Herringbone sale started today - suits are priced at $699 but not sure of the rest. I was in there picking up a suit I'd had in for alterations and they were just putting up the prices. No crowd at all right now.

    The altered suit fits so nicely that I kept it on and took away my original suit in a bag [​IMG]
