Fully canvassed. Natural shoulder. Suppressed waist (tapered).
Great memory! Yeah a Benjamin Clothing 41/42L size suit fits perfectly so it would be a euro 51/52L.
Quote: I can't wait to see the new Benjamin Sport Coats. I'll be in the market for 3-5 of them. A classic navy sport coat or blazer would be first on my list, followed by a light gray (plain or patterned, herringbone?), blue-gray sharkskin and maybe a darker gray with charcoal windowpane.
That said, I'll probably purchase any you put out. The fit of the 38S jacket is perfect for me OTR with no alterations.
Caruso mainline suit (including pants) size 46 IT / 36 US fits me perfectly. BB Milano 36S fits a little bit tight around the waist but otherwise perdect.
What size Benjamin suit should I get? I can only find a Tux in Benjamin 36S, any chance the other styles will come back soon?
Probably also the 36s. We are hoping to have more later tgis spring.
Can anyone compare the fit and sizing of the Benjamin Classico suits with BB Fitzgerald? I'm a 41R in the Fitz, and I'm trying to decide what I'd be in the Classico.
Comparing the measurements on the eHaberdasher site with some measurements of a 41R Fitz in B&S leads me to believe that the 39R/40R Benjamin Classico would fit, but that just "feels" wrong to me. Can anyone provide some insight?
Ben, when are the SCs coming in?
We've had several customers say the Benjamins are similar to the BB Fitz, so it's likely you'll need the 41R/42R in the Benjamin.
Good question. Hopefully in 2 months (but may be over optimistic - still ironing things out with the manufacturer)
Are you able to create a Benjamin Vicuna blend SC? I think the typical blend is 90% wool - 10% Vicuna (although I did see a 100% Vicuna SC for $20k).
Is it a possibility?
Hopefully... we'll see. I have some Colombo wool/vicuna suiting fabric but don't have any SC fabric with vicuna yet. I'm sure I will - just chose about 50 different Zegna SC fabrics.
I don't see any listed on the website, but do you have any 41R/42R or 41S/42S Benjamin suits in blue or gray?
(I'm normally a R, but a Brooks Brothers salesperson tried my in a 42S GF Fitzgerald and it fit exceptionally well, with its natural shoulders.)
