    Classico II is going to pretty much be like the original Classico - just tightened up the collar even more so hopefully eliminating any issues with collar gap for those who had a problem with that in the past.

    I haven't gathered enough data on the Napoli yet, but a few guys are returning them for being too snug - particularly in the mid-section of the jacket but also the trousers... 1 out of every 5 are being returned at this point, so I may have to tweak the model a bit more. No one has complained about the shoulders being too wide though (at least not yet).

    Cool. Hopefully you sized down as those Saks coats do run very full. There are only a handful left - we originally had 180 of them IIRC!

    Have you tried the 43L/44L Classico? I won't be making a 42/43, sorry to say... at least not off the rack.

    Sounds great, re classico's. Looking forward to trying napoli sportcoats once that happens.

    The shoulders of the shirt are meant to hit a little bit higher up. I'll try to dig up pics I took of myself in a shirt so you can see. If you've ever worn Mastai Ferretti it is the same manufacturer (SAITT).

    It true you are only stocking the trim fit (B115) going forward? I was looking at the medium fit (B102) but Colleen mentioned you will not be restocking these?

    Yes this is true. The trim fit is in line with the silhouette of the Benjamin suits - the B102 is a very full fit (Amercian full fit).

    I'm curious about figuring out the sleeve length on the Benjamin shirts. How does one correspond the measurements listed to normal 33/34/35 sleeve length sizes? Say for a 16.5 neck?

    What's the latest ETA for more Benjamin suits?

    Are you planning to restock charcoal in all sizes? I'm in a wedding coming up in early November that I need a 41/42L suit for.

    I take a 16.5 neck and a 34.5 sleeve, and the sleeve length on the benjamins I have works just fine. (Except the one end-on-end I got which was shorter overall than the others. Sleeve was a little short. There's a prior post about it and I think archibald said he had the same experience. Ben said something about checking on that fabric.)

    So, this is my maiden wear of my benjamin suit, which fits very well. However, it has very quickly (into the morning, it didn't have it on the hanger) developed this bump on the shoulder? Any ideas? I'll head off to my tailor ASAP to try to figure it out with him, but thought I'd ask here also. Thanks

    The suit looks good! I'd take it out slightly along the sides, but that's it. I don't see anything wrong with the shoulder.

    Alright, the issue is more obvious in this photo. Thanks much

    Email [email protected] and Colleen ought to be able to let you know exact full sleeve measurement (rather than the shoulder point to point and sleeve from shoulder measurements already provided on the site). I imagine it's roughly 35"+ or so for size 16.5, but she can confirm. If you have a specific shirt in mind you may want to provide the link to that exact shirt and she will measure that one.
