    Put a few on today - very few pieces - less than 30 in sizes e46C - e50L. This is a limited run of Napoli modeled suits with a softer shoulder. I would be curious to hear feedback from those who give this a try as I am not yet putting these into production yet and want to hear thoughts on the model...

    Ben, any chance you can share the 41/42 and 43/44 measurements before you update the site?

    Just to make sure I have it straight:
    -- Limited run of Napolis up now. Full run possible in the future, but not yet in the pipeline?
    -- Full run of Classico II's in late September.
    -- Napoli sportcoats?

    Also, can you confirm you will have the 39L/40L in the Classico II next month, particularly in navy?

    Thanks!

    I noticed the Napoli model has wider shoulders in 39/40L than the Classico does in 41/42L. Any reason?

    Saw that too and it made my day! That was the only issue I had previously. Just hoping the Napoli 41/42 is about 19.25 in the shoulders.

    Didn't make any Napoli's in 41L/42L or higher... sorry. The Classico II is going to be quite similar to the Classico - just pinched/tightened up the collar of the jacket even more.

    Yes to all of the above!

    yes - ever so slightly wider shoulder. For one, the shoulder is totally different than the Classico, and secondly for some people (me included) the shoulder didn't seem to extend out quite enough and the upper arm would bulge out just slightly, and I am not a particularly big/muscular guy.

    I just received my first Benjamin suit- one of the new Napoli models. Great quality, everything that's been said about it already certainly seems true so far. One question: I'm 6'0 tall but with long arms and skinny (165 lbs, 40 inch chest). The 38R fits great on the torso and shoulders, but the sleeves are too short for me: they end about an 1 inch above my wristbone. Should I tell my tailor to open up the shoulder to add length, or from the end of the sleeve? Thanks everyone!

    Always go end of sleeve if it is an option. Shoulder tailoring is expensive and hit or miss.

    1" may be cutting it close... ask your tailor and see what he says. From my experience, while most 6 footers are in between a regular and long, most opt for a long unless they want a slightly shorter/trendy look with a shorter jacket.

    No, this was just a small test run of the Napoli model. We're getting in over 400 suits later this month (restock of solids). ETA for jackets and new fabrics will be announced once we have a firm grasp on what's going on with those... plus more shirts should be in soon!

    How about more flat front Benjamin trousers in 34? Only black and charcoal right now.
