    That sounds like a headache. But yes, it would be great if you post swatches.

    By the way, random question -- just received my Classico back from the tailor. It's the first time I've tried this guy out, and I appreciated his attention to detail. I noticed that there were rubber grippers on the waistband of the trousers, and a bit of fabric tape at the hem. Were these included with the suit?

    I believe my trousers also came with those. Very handy.

    I found Caruso fits softer than Canali, and they're generally cut slimmer.

    Rubber grippers are indeed part of the construction of the trousers. Fabric tape for the hem is not - likely added by your tailor. Indeed it seems you have a tailor that pays attention to detail - nice of him to do this without you asking. Fabric tape at the hem is sometimes added to 1) add a bit of weight at the bottom to keep the drape of the trousers lying nicely, and 2) can help protect from wear/fraying of the inside cuff.

    Agreed, although as I probably mentioned before, Caruso has about a gazillion different models. That being said, 99% of them are generally cut slimmer than the average suit.

    I tried a Suit Supply( Napoli style) in a 44r and was too tight in chest and thighs.
    6' 5" , 210LBS, 36 arms, 39 US waist. 44L in JAB. Maybe a 45/46l in Classico model ?

    TIA

    Tough to say sounds like it could work - worth a try at the very least.

    These Caruso suits may be good possibilities as well:

    eHaberdasher,

    I'm 6'2" which makes it hard to find quality sport coats and suits long enough. That is why I've been really looking forward to your upcoming sport coats and suits in new patterns. Thats unfortunate that they can't find the material that you sent them. Sounds like they have a customer service and quality control issue. As much as it hurt to do, I returned the Riviera Sport Coat because it was just too short. At my height, and probably with anyone as tall or taller than me, the jacket needs to be at least 32" from the bottom of the collar. It fit perfect in the shoulders, chest (love that high armhole cut), and waist. Well I hope they find the material soon!

    Yes at 6'2" I would imagine you'd always need a long vs. regular. Seeing the Riviera was helpful - I'm pretty sure you'd need the e52L in the new Benjamin jackets and not the 50L. I think you're going to like the Benjamin jackets - once they come out that is! I'm just tweaking the jacket a bit more, and will probably make a 2 button model also. Will also make some with flapped besom pockets too - not just patch pockets.

    They've found most of the fabrics now, thankfully. They're organizing everything and almost ready for me to give the final OK on the model and then hopefully things will move forward from here!

    By the way, Benjamin shirts (made by SAITT - maker of Mastai Ferretti et tal) are marked down to $60 and Benjamin ties (many with Zegna and some Tom Ford fabrics) are now only $25.

    are the benjamin trousers hemmed? i noticed the new stock has a slightly shorter inseam. for instance, the 34 waist has a 35 inseam...which if unhemmed wont have enough fabric for me :(

    Is it true that the Benjamin Classico trousers are slimmer than Verdi trouser? I normally wear a 30" inseam trouser, so if I bought a Classico, which is 35" inseam, I would shorten the length. Wondering that whether it affects the overall shape of the trousers or not?

    Hello, yes that is correct. The Verdi trousers are quite full. The Lucente/Granoro trousers were quite slim, and the Classico is right in between. Most people have an inseam of 30" - 32" and shortening to a 30" should not pose an issue whatsoever in our opinion.

    Thank you very much, but as I found the information in the website, the Classico trousers has a narrower leg width at bottom (8" while Lucente is around 8,3", both is 30" waist).
    And if I'm not wrong, you said that three model of suits are same fit ( I mean the Classico is as slim as Lucente and Granoro), but the Classico is the shortest jacket ? (Classico is 28" while Lucente is 28,4" in lengh from bottom to collar)

    Colleen just measured and she said it's actually 36" inseam, for what it's worth...
