    You have like 5,000 Kiton things in your store, thats nuts. That Guanaco coat is going to take like an additional 80% off to work, but its phenomenal. :slayer:

    I have questioin about the fabric on the Benjamin Sartorial Granoro suits. It is labeled as S 140's wool. The look, weel and drape are all great. But it feels really delicate, so I wonder what is its record on durability (e.g. assuming weekly wear). I'm not so much into "special ocasion" suits (not that there is anything wrong with that), so I wonder if this fabric is suitable for regular office wear.

    Btw, the Granoro is a great cut. It took me 3 years to fin a suit that actually fits. Please restock the navy soon.

    Someone other then me will have more knowledge for you, but the higher that number is, the less durable the fabric will be. 100's wool will last longer than 140's, but it won't feel as nice. Personally, I'm used to 120's and higher and like it that way for my worsted suits. I really don't know if it will knock years off of your suit though. How often will you be wearing it? Once a week type of thing?

    Yeah, ideally once per week.
    The fabric doesn't feel that fragile per se, but you can tell it is finer than the standard business suits I'm used to. So i'm just looking for empirical data on how higher S wool holds up over time :D
    Either way, it is not a big deal, since the cut is just awesome.

    Thanks for responding. Yes, we've found the fabrics we chose to be a good balance of drape/luxurious feel and durability. Mind you these won't last you for 10 years with regular wear, but it is not meant to as styles do change over time anyhow. At this price point, we really do feel that the Benjamin suits we offer are unrivaled when it comes to price/quality/value.

    Also as far as we heard, we actually haven't. We haven't had any complaints or comments/feedback regarding lack of durability with the fabrics...

    I think that 10% Kiton discount was the exception rather than the rule. Usually no coupons that I know of.

    Sprout is correct. We generally don't do the additional discount game. We price things the best we can and do not negotiate prices whatsoever. Guys like Ian from STF and us here at eHaberdasher already discount tremendously... I know, I know "It doesn't hurt to ask", but the reality is the answer will always be the same. That would be, "no". Which is in a way also good for you guys: you don't have to worry about waiting or thinking that you might miss out on an additional discount. In general we only do hard markdowns on stuff we just want to move. We ran the Kiton 10% off sale prior to doing a hard markdown on a lot of Kiton stuff.
