Typo or clever pun?
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
It's "piqued". Sorry, couldn't resist.
Thanks for getting it.
I aim to please.
Pleas clarify: i have a question about the Benjamin Sartorial Granoro suits.
Based on the web site measurements, it appears that the difference between "SHORT" and "REGULAR" is only 1/2". Is this correct?
I am 5'8" and have really hard time deciding whether I need a regular or a short, please help. Thanks
Hard to say for sure, because if you're 5'8", that often is the "in-between" size, but we would tend to recommend the 38R if going with the Granoro. If the Lucente (which is cut just slightly longer), you might fare better with the 38S. Of course you can try both and return one (or both) - we have a 30 day return policy.
The cold weather is coming!
Just marked down a bunch of flannel Caruso "Sartoria Parma" suits to $495. Great deal - many are made with fabric from Loro Piana, Carlo Barbera and Zegna...
Some are even size mismatched with a slightly smaller pant - might work well for some of you harder to fit guys that have a larger drop (42 jacket, 32 pant, 44 jacket, 34 or 36 waist, etc.)
You mean the fabric?
yes, the fabric. Have corrected the original post - thanks for helping me clarify.
Oh man, I wish I had the funds available for that 36R, but I just got hit with an unexpected $600 car repair instead. Beautiful fabric, though.
Looks like someone else bought it anyway... car repairs suck
What was that pattern, anyway? I tried looking at it but it resembled a cobblestone road IIRC.
I would like to put in a request for some benjamin SC's. In FU fabrics please
I agree. Including size 38L
if we're lucky we'll be showing some around thanksgiving time!
Just in time to blow my Christmas gift funds
