Hey, Scnupe: Sorry it took me so long to reply to this post. Both brands are excellent. As anyone who reads this Forum regularly knows, I'm a Zegnaholic, and can really vouch for the quality of construction and fabric. I've also been able to get Zegna slacks at great prices on sale at a number of different types of stores. Zanella is also a great label that specializes more in slacks, although I've started seeing sport coats, casual shirts, and even some dress shirts around lately. Many specialty stores also have a good Zanella made-to-measure programs. Price point is similar- and both brands tend to be styled conservative/classic Italian. Either make is a great choice toward building a timelessly elegant gentleman's wardrobe. rands are basic building blocks of a gentleman's wardrobe. If I can help you find a source local to you, or be of any other help, please e-mail me.
