I've actually bought used AEs from that same seller. It worked out great. The ones you have linked don't appear to have much wear on them, so I'd say it's a good bet. Plus, this seller allows returns (which is uncommon for sellers of shoes).
Quote: Originally Posted by noobizor Hey guys. So I'm in love with Zegna shirts, but the sleeves always run long. I can push them up, the fabric swells around my arms, looking way too blousy. Could a tailor correct this problem by slimming the sleeves (similar to how slim jeans can be worn long, with minimal/controlled stacking)? Or would I have to get them shortened? (If there is such a thing). Thanks. From cheapest to more expensive in my...

Quote: Originally Posted by TRA8324 which shoes? linen or standard canvas? I was thinking about the same thing last night. Went with the standard canvas because the sole looks odd on the linen version. It seems to come up much higher and makes the shoe look clumsy. Haven't seen them in real life, though. PS Superga.com is having a 30% off sale + 20% if you buy two pairs.

That is not tweed. The photos are not good enough to see the weave, so I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you that it ain't tweed. Still not convoinced. Tweed might be unfinished, but it doesn't have to be that rough. Example from Bookster: From...
