    Perhaps others can chime in, but from our experience the 140's holds up just fine and to us is a good balance between a luxurious hand and durability. FWIW my brother just wore out a pair of Benjamin trousers, and he claims he wore them at least 200 times and works in NYC.

    I recently bought two pair of (dark charcoal and medium gray) trousers and they are on par with some of my higher end pants. Although I've only had them for a couple weeks now, the construction and fabric seem great and give no indication of durability issues thus far. Are there plans for new trousers in different fabric patterns in the works Ben?

    Thank you david and eHaberdasher for the helpful responses. I will likely be placing an order today, and I look forward to seeing the suit in person. I appreciate your help.

    I'm not a fan of A.

    So some of you guys don't like the patch chest pocket? Too casual? It's just that with a solid jacket you want to make sure it doesn't look like an orphaned suit jacket. What about buttons? MOP? Silver? Definitely not brass though.

    How about dark nut buttons with brass shank, which I think would also remove jacket from orphan suit jacket and complement the heavier fabric.

    Hey, does anyone with an athletic build have any experience with the Granoro model? I've been doing some research but a lot of individuals here are 5'10"+, slim, and wearing a 38-42 which doesn't help me at all.

    I'm about 5'6" @ 160lbs with a 31" waist. I'm a 40S and how would the Granoro compare to a Canali or Hugo Boss 40S, as this suits fits really well on me. The alterations are usually just taking in around the waist.

    Thanks.

    I'm solidly in the A camp with patch chest pocket. A curved one would be nice. But I would view this as casual jacket. As I said earlier, I'd also love an unlined one. But how about a more casual version in hopsack or something along with the cashmere?

    And MOP buttons for me, too.

    I think the soft shoulder, hip patch pockets, and contrasting buttons will avoid the orphaned suit jacket look, especially if the fabric doesn't look as smooth as a typical worsted wool.

    I like the idea of brown horn or corozo buttons. MOP would be my next choice.

    So you're still figuring out the details of the jackets? Does this mean we're not seeing them in April?
