    I've been waiting well over a year for new colors in 44R. Sadly, I've given up hope.

    The Pino Borriello shirts are like the Borrelli shirts - not as slim as the Benjamin shirts but not quite as full as the Mattabisch shirts. Actually you know Pino Borriello shirts are made in the same factory as Borrelli, Barba, Kiton, Mattabisch. Looks like Borriello used a lot of the same fabrics we have already in Borrelli, but there is more handwork in these than the Borrellli for sure.

    Finally got a hard date. They'll be shipped from the factory on August 5th. They will air ship some to us to get you guys started asap so hopefully by August 10th - 15th we'll have them online. Long overdue, I know. The demand is very great - we may end up taking pre-orders...

    Just saw these pics and realized I never posted one. Snapped this low-quality picture after a wedding. Got lots of compliments on the jacket:

    [​IMG]

    That's the Benjamin Lucente 38s in navy. I'm 5'9/160lbs.

    Tie is a 3" english laundry, and shoes are J&M Aldrich II (I feel they look a little clunky here).

    Overall the suit fits great (thanks so much for swapping out the 38R Ben!). My biggest gripe is the damn collar that doesn't quite sit flush against me on the back despite some extra tailoring, but oh well.

    Thoughts on the pants break? I'm considering taking them up another 0.5 - 1"

    Thanks for posting! Looks great overall... collar issue does show on you slightly, but issue is resolved for this coming production due to arrive early/mid August! The trousers do like a tad long - I would consider taking them up as you mention.

    New arrivals: Pino Borriello shirts and Battisti ties!

    The PB shirts are fantastic! FYI they're all made in the same factory in Napoli as Kiton, Borrelli, Isaia, Mattabisch, Finamore, Barba and I hear Battisti is going to start making shirts there too! Here are some photos of the PB Black Label shirt details:

    What is the fit on the Pino shirts, in general? Generous, slim, extra slim (like Benjamin)?

    Fit is like Borrelli - in fact they even use some of the same patterns and model names as Borrelli. So a nice, intermediate fit.

    The Pino Borriello are really nice.

    I was wondering if you ever get any size 14 shirts?

    Thanks.

    First post here.

    I'm looking at the 44L Granoro suit and am wondering if it's going to work for me. I am pretty tall (6'4") and have large thighs (27" circumference at the widest part). My inseam is 34" and I wear a 17-36 shirt. My problem buying suits (especially with flat-front trousers) is that the trousers are typically pretty snug. I don't need baggy, but I need to be able to put keys and wallet in my pockets. I recently tried a 44L Hugo Boss that fit perfectly, except for the thighs, which couldn't be let out enough to make it work.

    I'm also a little concerned that the jacket might not be long enough (body not sleeves). I don't really know how to measure my torso, though.

    Any advice?

    Welcome to the forum! At 6'4", it's though to say because usually a Long is good for 6' - 6'3". Your best bet is probably the one black suit we have left in e54L in the Lucente model which is cut just slightly longer than the Granoro model (by about 1cm). Also the pants can be swapped out in black for the fuller modeled pants (Verdi model), although you won't have enough to put a cuff on them. Best bet is to try one, or both, and you always have 30 days to return. The charcoal and medium grey will have extra trousers later as well, and you can always size up to help accommodate the thighs if need be.

    Looks like you have Verdi trousers in charcoal as well. Are those the same material as the Granoro suit and would it be possible to swap them with the Granoro trousers if those don't work for me?

    Tacking on to my last question...

    I went suit shopping today to get a better feel for the fit of different cuts. So far, the best fitting jacket I have found was a Hugo Boss 44L. The trousers were way too tight in the thighs, though. I also went to Brooks Brothers and tried on one of their Fitzgerald suits (46L). The pants (flat front) fit great and the jacket was pretty good too, though the waist would need to come in a fair amount.

    Not knowing how your suits fit in comparison to these, I'm wondering if a 44L will be big enough in the shoulders (I am very square-shouldered) and if the pants would fit at all. And unfortunately you don't seem to have anything in 46L other than a Maestro jacket, which I'm not as fond of due to the high button.

    From a hard-to-fit guy...HELP!

    Hello there, I have become such a fan of your Benjamin suit collection that I recently purchased a medium gray Granoro in 36S. I am looking everywhere for a quality solid navy suit but no luck. Benjamin, are u going to have any solid navy Lucente or Granoro in 36S in stock soon? Or will your upcoming shipment in August include a solid navy in that size? Thanks!!

    I seem to be running into an odd situation- I'm about a 38-39" chest, and approximately a 17-17.5" shoulder, so I should be ordering a 38, which is fine. But the measurements seem to indicate that I'd be closet to a 38L than R- or maybe I'm just expecting a more traditional cut, and these jackets are cut just an inch or so on the short side? I'm 5'10 for reference

    Yes, except for the current navy (new ones coming in will be the same), trousers are same material as suits for those that like 2 or more pair for suits. We should be able to accommodate swaps.

    Hmmm.... it's really hard to say for sure. We are due to receive more 45/46L in charcoal, medium grey and navy in a few weeks with the lower button stance...
