Random question ... any plans or interest in introducing flannel suiting for the Benjamins?
Probably at some point... I would like one for myself anyway!
38S or 39S

Trying hard to resist this overcoat.
Glad I'm only able to view it over the internet. If I were able to actually try it on and feel the cashmere softness, I'm pretty sure I'd already have bought it.

Needless to say it is sweet. Not only is it amazing cashmere but it is quite heavy and would give anyone a reason to look forward to winter! I believe we've sold two or three of these already... this one has hung on for a while - we might actually mark it down further... and make it tougher for your to decide!
I know that you plan on offering this fabric (first picture) in the upcoming Benjamin sport coat line but I came across this fabric (second picture) which looks to be the same fabric except in a lighter color combination and thought it might be a great addition especially for the spring and summer wardrobe. What is everyone's opinion and would this be something that you would consider adding to the selection?
Thought interesting, neither of these are particularly user friendly for most office environments. The ability to wear them in any quantity could be hampered for many.
I would have to respectfully disagree. I am a CPA and work for a large Public Accounting company with a strict suit or sport coat and trouser with button down and tie dress code and I would definitely wear both with either navy or medium grey trousers and would be one of the better dressed individuals in the office. But hey to each his own and thank you for giving me your honest opinion.
Hi Ben, any chance you'll be carrying a 40r Benjamin classico charcoal gray, current not classico ll, soon? The 39/40 jacket proved too tight and my tailor thought better not to alter it rather get one size up first then fit.
Maybe... we'll see... I would love to be able to offer scores of fabrics eventually. Will see how things develop with this new factory.
If I'm understanding correctly, no we probably won't be offering a straight 40R. We will have size euro 52R (41R/42R) with the next shipment in September, but nothing in between the sizes. But again, I am hoping in time we can offer a made to order program including sizes in between (euro 47R, 49R, 51R, etc.)
