Fake Canali spotted in the wild.   
Two years ago I was scammed on Ebay by sending personal payment to some seller. I filed a unauthorized payment claim against the seller, and miraculously won the case. Fed PP some BS story about kids in the household using my card, and pointed out that I had not received anything. The seller never replied to anything, which may have been a deciding factor in my case. 
They started with that label around 2009 or 2010, IIRC. They then changed it to a newer one last year, so it's probably from 2 to 7 years old.   It's not their classic tux, which has one button, solid serge black fabric, and either vented or unvented. Looks like there's a very slight stripe pattern to the fabric? Could be some seasonal model, specially made that year.   Most of the mainline Zegna (which your tux is) I've seen has usually been classic, with Z Zegna...
Well, on the bright side: You'll save money. No need to shell out lots of money for "beater" stuff every year. You can relocate that money into other things, even nicer stuff that you'll wear once a week/month or whatever.   As much as I love dress pants, they have a much, MUCH shorter lifespan than jeans or chinos. And when I'm grinding away at the desk/office, it kinda feels like you're wasting a perfectly good pair of trousers on nothing. Save that for potential...
I've owned everything from Caruso, and owned/tried most RLBL models. As mentioned above, Caruso and RLBL are very different in the shoulder department. soft vs broad structured shoulders.    I haven't really found any perfect comparisons to RLBL, they either seem to fit you or they don't...no middle ground. Very square and strong looking. I fit other strong-shoulder suits/coats like Zegna Roma/Torino, Brioni, Gieves and Hawkes, etc, but RLBL is pretty much unwearable for...
I've seen those on Ebay as "2015" models, so could be a brand new tag? 
Tincati is also one other brand that is first tier. The ones I've seen and owned have been made by Kiton, Attolini, D'Avenza, I think St. Andrews too.  My Attolini x Tincati is 100% identical to the same model by Cesare Attolini house brand, and both are priced almost identically too.    Paul Stuart - Stuart's Choice is/has been made by Isaia, St. Andrews. Excellent stuff, but a bit expensive brand new, considering that you could go to the brands (Isaia, SA) directly...
I was once scammed for about 500$, which was paid via paypal personal payment. Miraculously got the money back though! I simply claimed unauthorized payment, and made up some BS story about relatives buying stuff without my permission. Changed my password, and pointed out that the unauthorized purchase had never been delivered. Couldn't believe that it worked, but it did.     But as mentioned above, always pay with CC through normal paypal payments. 
Used dark blue Brioni for Bergdorf Goodman suit for sale. I very recently picked it up on Ebay, but misread the measurements, so here it goes. It's 3 butto, but the highest button rolls nicely when worn. I'd call it a 3-roll-2.5. For a 42, it's quite slim. Much slimmer than my other Brioni suits, and suits like Zegna Roma, Caruso Sartoria Parma, etc. in 42. This could def. work as a 40L too.  Price includes shipping (world wide from Norway) The good No rips, holes or...
Plain navy suit from Samuelsohn, for JP Tilford. Got the suit today, but unfortunately the shoulders didn't work for me. The suit is in excellent condition, a real workhorse suit.    Single-vent jacket and single-pleat trousers. It runs a bit large IMO, so it could maybe also work for as 42R/52R. I usually wear 52R from makers like Caruso, Corneliani, Zegna, Brioni, Kiton.    World-wide shipping from Norway (w/tracking): $30   Condition : Excellent    Grade : 9+/10...
