I have a Signature Platinum suit from a user here, supposedly made in same factory as low-end Zegna.

Anywhoo, as an aside, I think country of origin generally matters because of (generally correct) assumptions which we make. Even if it's Asian people making the garments in Italy, not sure why that matters. The point isn't the race of the tailor, it's that labor is generally more expensive in first world nations so (as a general matter) companies aren't going to take on that additional cost unless they get something for it. For a few companies, the "Made in...
Broke down and bought some Allen Edmonds Park Avenues. More than I meant to spend, but hey.

Pop pop on the Billy Reid, and oddly enough it fits me. Weird cuz Large almost never works for me (I really need XL). The collar would be just too tight, but as a casual shirt with one undone? Fits like a glove. The BB replaces an old no-name with a similar pattern/palette I'd had kicking around. I'm a sucker for the funkier stripe patterns (hence the PRL), and a no-name knit.
