Glad to hear it - enjoy!
I got my first order from eHaberdasher today, a pair of Benjamin medium gray trousers. Great tailoring and great fit! I'm very impressed at the quality for the price and I just ordered another pair in navy too.
Hi Ben, just wondering if you expect some winter outerwear to arrive this autumn? I'm trying to find something quite casual in the $500 area but there isn't really anything interesting for me, with a slight exception for your size 39/40 Boglioli coat.
none on the horizon, but may be headed to Italy in a few weeks to snoop around and hopefully will dig up some nice outerwear/coaats! May make some Benjamins actually also...
OK, thanks. In November I'll be in a desperate need so there is time left.
Those Benjamin coats, interesting! I'm guessing you're heading for a classic formal overcoat style? Like your suits?
I wish you had some nice 36R blue sportscoats from Riviera.... that's the one thing missing from my wardrobe
I was wondering if you had given any thought to making sportcoats within the Benjamin line? I like the look of your suits, but don't have that many occasions to wear one. Sportcoats, on the other hand, are something I can swing more regularly.
I think there are several of us who are interested. See this:
Yes - we will have some sport coats - hopefully later this Fall but I don't want to promise anything because production times are not always fulfilled according to plan!
I had the exact same experience. The Granoro pants are very slim in the seat, normal in waist, the thigh and leg opening which makes the cut seem a bit odd that it is so tight in the seat. My tailor maxed them out and they still feel a bit too snug. Make no mistake I do not have a big butt by any means, but it appears these days actually having anything other than a pancake ass can be problematic.
I wish I knew about potential swapping out of the pants, I recall that being only an option with the suit separates which are a different style (Maestro) than Lucente or Granoro. The Granoro jacket is great not overly slim by any means which makes the whole small butt pants thing all the more odd.
I purchased a couple of Benjamin odd trousers from eHaberdasher and sized up and those are great after a small amount of alteration.
Quality and finishing is great for that price point.
Really? I had the exact opposite experience. It was good in the waist; but really roomy in the thigh down to the point that I may consider bringing it in. I'm not huge; but I do have an athletic build, especially in the lower extremity.
Yes - we get comments from both sides - pants too big, pants too small... if only everyone would be the same exact size and shape that would make life so much easier!
I see that you added some Caruso suits very recently. Any more coming ? None of the new ones are in my size
yes - more coming!
No doubt. I have a solution... I will volunteer to become the model to base your 38 Short Benjamin suits upon then all will be good.
