Surely only a "Tessuto Zegna" label is allowed now?

My wife walked in while I was viewing this thread and wants to be a customer. Please warn me before you open up a shop on Etsy so that I can try to block access to it!

I will say that is shows a great deal of talent as a tailor to take a suit and turn it into a diffrent garment, on the otherhand it sickens me to see someone take such a fine peice of tailored clothing and butcher it while chaning the sex of the garment at the same time.

Did you see the fusing in that fine piece of tailored clothing (first few pictures)? It was practically glued together. I saw that when I removed a small piece of lining (in that stadium, in a nice and clean way, stitch per stitch), and after that I increased the tempo a bit. Besides that, it was about eight years old and I hadn't worn it the last six years or so.
