 Brooks Brothers has been very consistent with their cuts IMO, especially for their best sellers. I've owned various models, and they've been pretty much identical over the years. Especially the Madison suit seems to have been untouched for 15 years now.   It's only only the very late 80's and 90's stuff that looks outdated IMO, as they fell victim to lower gorge and lower button stance, and wider shoulders. early 80's/70's/60's will all look very much alike. Single vented...
 Depends on the condition. I've seen 20 year old "New old stock" Zegna suits on Ebay, with tags and everything on. The only thing that has changed through the years, has been the styling, so keep that in mind. I've owned most everything by Zegna from the past 20 years, so here's my experience:  90's suits = Wider and more padded shoulders, high-rise trousers, deep pleats, lower button-stance, sometimes unvented Early 2000's = Wide and aggressive shoulders, longer jackets....

 I don't have any lists, but here's from their website: http://www.zegnagroup.com/zegna_timeline#/timeline/  Some cool facts, and some dates to different fabric launches. 
They have quite a range of fabrics.    Trofeo is their "nice" range or regular wool fabrics. The 600 just means that it's a wool / silk mix. 85% wool, 15% silk.    http://www.zegnagroup.com/lanificio/tessuti/elenco https://www.zegna.com/ww-en/editorial/made-to-measure/luxury-fabrics.html     Their absolutely finest fabric would be 12 milmil 12, Vicuna or Vellus Aureum. But those are only available through their MTM. I've personally never seen those in person, but I...
For sale is a navy pinstripe wool / cashmere Attolini suit. The low price is due to a repair job on the back of the left sleeve (elbow area). Looks like it was done in a hurry, so I'd probably pay a tailor to fix it up with more matching color. (or maybe just go over the area with a matching color marker or something like that)    Marked size 54R, but it's much smaller than that. I'd say a 52, so check measurements.    It's in used condition, but I honestly can't find...

Cool summer suit. It's a off-white/cream cotton-poly mix suit from Prada. Made by Belvest, which makes the top line for Prada. Doesn't feel like anything I've ever felt before, that's for sure. Size could probably also work as a 52R, though the trousers have been taken out to maximum. Modern fitting.   Specs:    -70% Cotton / 30% Polyester (smoother feeling than regular cotton. Kinda like a Ctto)  -Fully lined -Two button, single breasted  -Dual vents  -Flat front...
