Yes it is I'm very tempted to pick up the other 38s.
NY'er, and love FC
Can some one quickly distinguish between the "M" vs "D" sizes listed on thesite for A. testonis? Thaaaanks!
Any fit pics of the new shirts yet?
I got my shirts today, and I took a few fit pics. I took some tucked and untucked to hopefully show how the darting fits. I just threw on a random tie and suit.
My pics aren't the greatest, and I'm not sure that I'm the best model, but these are about as slim as I could go.
While these aren't Borrelli handmade shirts and fine fabrics (also no MOP buttons), I haven't seen anything near this price point that has the nice, Italian collar and slim fit. I'm really thrilled with these. I'm doing a test wash of mine, and if they come out fine, I'm going to order more.
One thing to note is that they are made of Italian fabric and the care instructions say no tumble dry.
Anyway, thanks again, Ben!
Thanks for posting!
Here are fit pics on me - first set is the fuller B102 model (Capri collar). Second set is the slimmer B115 model which has the dual darts in the back - my preferred fit. I'm wearing size 15.5 and wear a 38R jacket FYI... so as you can see the B115 model is slim but not THAT slim... they're fitted.
Here's the Riviera jacket - love it. Definitely runs slim. Here's the 38R (euro 48R):
For $695 these are a steal - full canvas pure cashmere made in Napoli. A great cut. Also for reference I'm 5'10" 160 lbs. There are some half canvassed models that are as low as $395.
When are the new batch of benjamin suits coming in?
Hopefully some start coming in April... then more in May/June and sport jackets too.
Just got my Benajamin shirt and am very pleased so I ordered 3 more!
When your site mentions sleeve length, is that best measured w/ a shirt lying flat, measuring the outside of the sleeve, from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff?
Just trying to compare to my current shirts. Thanks!
Ben -- what fabrics are offered in the B102 fit (I generally try to avoid darts)? I bought the "soft light blue" and I'd be interested in buying more. Thanks.
This one also, and that's it...
We'll probably offer more in the regular/medium body fit in the future... actually I'm in Italy now and was in Biella yesterday as well as today buying fabrics and have also visited a few different shirt manufacturers throughout Italy this past week... not sure we're definitely sticking with SAITT as they won't let us use our own fabrics that we've been picking out (nice ones from Albini, Zegna, Tom Ford and other high end fabrics)
yes - from the top of the shoulder down to the end of the cuff with the shirt laying flat. Frankly the measurements were provided by SAITT but they appear to be accurate.
Thx. Ordering shortly!
