    Sorry for not being more clear in my earlier response. My wife accuses me all the time of being overly verbose and not being concise enough with words... haha! For the Benjamin suits we currently only have the year round weight solids (other than the few winter weight 120's charcoal brown striped flannels). At present we do not have any summer weight suits for hot weather in the Benjamin collection. In the coming months we plan to offer a much wider variety of fabrics including lighter warm weather weights. $525 is the starting price for the Sartorial Collection which is the fully canvassed line. While we feel this presents one of the best values in the market, the price tag is still a stretch for some. The word "Affordable" is a relative term and will vary greatly between different individuals. That being said we are planning to test a half canvassed line of Benjamin clothing at a lower price point of $325 - $395 which we hope will be within the reach of most customers who appreciate style and quality but don't necessarily have or want to spend $525+ for a suit.

    eHab - You rock :) and roll. In other words, I really appreciate the above reply. Based on my reading and research I am aware that you offer a QUALITY 'VALUE' product with the Benjamin line which is near the starting price segment for Decent suits.

    Its great that you are bringing more on the summer suit fabrics (global warming) and half canvased ones as well :)

    So I pray and hope that with all the blessings of the divine universe that you are able to DO more and BEING more and SELL more in these SEGMENTS for new suit buyers like me/ us.

    Would love to try and evaluate your products the soonest that I can (once I travel back).

    PS: I will check out your links and get back if there are any more questions.

    Too early to say - certainly not before the end of this year though.

    I am new here, but interested in Benjamin sartorial suits due to good things I have heard about them; the build quality, fit, fabric, and attention to detail at a very affordable price for a suit of this quality. Being 6'2'', 170lbs, 22 years old recent college grad new to the professional workforce, I am in need of some suits. With my dimensions (normally wear 15.5, 35 slim fit shirts, with a 32 waist), I believe a 38L is the suit for me, and I am looking for a couple in traditional business colors, navy blue and charcoal, for regular use in the office. But being only 22 and fresh out of college I have budget constraints and living in Chicago where I transit via the metro trains I do have and durability needs. I know you mentioned your super 140s are fairly durable, but I believe with my harsh transits to and from work in cattle filed city trains something a little thicker would be better for the beating.

    I do not know if you have anything like this in the works, but I would certainly buy your suits if you had this:

    A navy blue and/or charcoal classico II half canvassed suit made from super 120s, with less padding (like napoli, though not slimmer, I like slim, but want to keep it business slim and not to fashion forward for work, the classico II looks slim enough to me, just remove some padding).

    I know you mentioned $325 - $395 for a half canvassed suit, which with super 140s sounds excellent, but if it was super 120s (possibly lower price due to this as well?), I would buy instantly. And just my 2 cents, I think super 120s would work better for a half canvassed suit as I believe the market is bigger. Because I would think those that want high quality suits in high thread counts as 140s would want a fully canvassed suit rather the half, and the market for a half canvassed being a cheaper priced market, would like cheaper thread counts to match, though not to cheap, certainly not lower than super 100s (save that for crappy fully fused suits).

    THANK YOU for bringing back the medium gray Classico II in 36S!!!
    Went to your website today and once I saw it in stock, I immediately pulled the trigger.
    I had a huge regret for not buying it last year before it went out of stock, so you can imagine how happy I was to see it back :)

    Thanks for listening to your customers, Ben

    TF is tough to get, as you may well be aware. That being said we are always on the hunt!

    I'm trying to decide between the Classico II and the Napoli in 36S. Can anyone give me a rundown of the fit/finish difference between the two models?

    Thank you

    The Classico II is the latest evelutionary stage of the Classico, which was derived from the Granoro, derived from the Lucente. It is a slim fitting model but still classic in the sense that it is not a fashion-slim fit and has fairly standard sized lapels. The Napoli has a softer but slightly broader shoulders and slightly wider lapels (8.5cm vs. Classico' 8cm) and a more suppressed mid-section with a slightly slimmer pant - great for someone with more athletic build but still slim. Does that help? The fabrics are the same.

    Thank you for that!

    Which would you suggest? I liked the Napoli and Lazio at suitsupply but could not purchase there because they have 0 staple colors. I have a 36/37 inch chest and I'm fairly stick shaped as opposed to V shaped (more slim than athletic build).

    My initial thoughts are that I like the slim pants on the Napoli but like the narrower shoulders and narrower lapels of the Classico II.
