    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Good to hear. [​IMG]

    By the way, I don't quite understand the care instructions of the (100% cotton) Borrelli pants. It says machine wash 30°C is recommended, but then there is also a symbol and the text "Dry clean only". Being unlined, casual but fine cotton pants, I would go for a gentle 30°C wash but the dry clean symbol/text confuses me. [​IMG]

    I have a bunch of borrelli cotton pants, many with the same dry clean tags as yours. I wash them with my shirts (borrelli shirts also tend to have 30 degrees or 35 degrees written on the label) on 40 degrees, and have never had a problem. I live in a place where there is a lot of dust on the streets, and I wash the lightly coloured pants after every two-three uses. They keep the shape and colour very well. The only issue I have had is with a pair of navy pants that keeps coloring everything else I wash them with. I now wash them separately.

    Thanks a lot for the advice. I'm also curious; do you iron them to get the crease after washing? I prefer no creases for informal cotton pants (I guess they can be referred to as chinos).

    Yes, they get ironed (steam iron) each time. I wear them all the time to the office. It is a bit hot here for wool trousers, and no good dry cleaning facilities. So cotton is my best option, and I honestly prefer it to wool anyway.

    I had the pleasure of dealing with Mike at E-Haberdasher. The quality of the Benjamin Satorial suit is absolutely exquisite. Upon seeing the material you could tell that the suit is of the best quality. Everybody who saw the suit complemented me on it's quality (from the fabric to the stitching). Unfortunately, I did not keep my suit because I suffer from a condition known as slumpy shoulder syndrome (s3) but seriously speaking, I tried the suit in front of tailors and they asked me if it was custom made (again, I assume it was due to the quality)

    Anyways, for anyone questioning whether they should pick up a suit from E-Haberdasher - Great quality, great service - great support - I wholeheartedly recommend

    That should not be.... perhaps it was filtered out - did you check your junk mail? Regardless we will forward your order confirmation email once again.

    I'd complained earlier about the Benjamin pants that went with my Benjamin 42L jacket had a very short rise. Well, Ben now offers long-rise pants to go with his L-size jackets. Needless to say, I stocked up on pants and a second Benjamin jacket-vest-two-pant combo as well. Only small disappointment: no option to make a functioning cuff in the jacket. Still an extremely good value.

    Can't promise anything in the way of shoes right now. Deals come and go so quickly...

    The Riviera shirts are nice - I love the fit as they are more trim with a double darted back. While they feature hand attached features(like the collar, buttons, sleeves, cuffs), I still would not put them in the same range as Barba/Borrelli. The stitching by the shoulder is a bit more pronounced - some may like it, others who want everything subtle likely will not. Fabrics aren't quite as nice as the Borrelli shirts we are offering either. That being said, we are happy to offer them in size scale and they are lesser priced than the Borrelli's and even Truzzi's that we have. These Riviera's have a little more fashion/style - along with the trimmer fit notice the squared buttons. I wouldn't say they're worth the 240 euro retail, but for $119.99 they're a nice shirt. We have sold several dozen and only 2 were returned (due to a shipping error on our part).

    No option for functional sleeve buttons on the jacket? That should not be - the sleeves are basted and certainly allow for functional cuffs - please clarify or feel free to email us directly. Thanks...

    The first Benjamin jacket I bought, in the navy 150s fabric, had buttonholes which could be made functional; the second, in the charcoal 140s, did not. Still a fantastic value, though.

    That makes no sense. You're supposed to get the sleeves hemmed by your tailor and have him make the button holes for you.

    Strange - all the Benjamins we have all have basted sleeves that are uncut and the sleeves are all prepared (vented) so that they can accomodate functional sleeve buttonholes. By the way, we did stumble upon 2 gunmetal 42L Maestro jackets (one is actually a full suit) that are not on the site - if interested email me... since I know you already have the vest and pleated pants...

    Ben, have a suggestion for you. On the description page for the Benjamin suits on the ehaberdasher site, is it possible to post a link to the benjaminclothing site? That site has a lot of information that is not included in the suit description, including features and construction. I have to keep finding one of your posts to link back to benjaminclothing....

    Thanks for the suggestion - I'll get someone to do that once we get a chance... the only other detail not found on the site is that we use corozo buttons too... but I believe it is on each suit description...
