different animals.. for some, the cut of Zegna is better than brioni or rlpl/st andrews and that would eclipse the difference in handwork. while the fabrics of the zegna in the discount stores may not be amazing, there is a lot of variety, even among basic navy, that would compete with brioni and St. A's fabrics (some of the 15 milmil is amazing)

I would agree.. if your own measurement is 43-44", you want a jacket that measures 46" around which would be a typical 44US or e54 A jacket tagged 46R will be 48-49" around if you really need a 46R, check out this
obviously not my thread, but he's a very trustworthy buyer/seller and the price is insane
