Late followup, but I just received mine* and they clock in as the steal of the year so far. One is a K which is exquisite and, yes, while it has a small hole on the back shoulder, I'm only going to wear it casually and the material is a "already worn" sort of finish, so it's perfectly in character (heck, some Lauren nutters actually pay for extras like that!). The other is a cotton/linen whose "flaw" is virtually undetectable - it's going straight into heavy rotation in just a few months (I'm in Florida, summer breaks in April).
I sized up and got a 52 in both - the K is a touch large (shoulders are fine, just needs a little supprezza in the waist) the other is spot on perfect. Just for info, I'm an althletic 50 drop 7/8 (depending on how "athletic" I've been lately) and most 50 E Zegna fits me like a glove.
* They took 10 days to get to me, and I paid for the 2 day shipping. I got a little worried while waiting but all that has evaporated. Had I gotten them sooner and/or known how happy I'd be, I would have snagged another 3 or 4 that I had my eye on. They've already flown the coop so I'll just remain pleased as punch with what I got. What a deal!
I do notice there's still a good number of 54 and 56s that are still 56euros - if you're on the fence, you should jump on it!
