I'm on the fence. They've been cheapening the lower line for some time now, but for a brand that is famed for their fabrics going into the leisure suit world of poly doesnt make sense. Thing is only Zenga can verify its authenticity, the company has become so large you cant track their lines anymore. I've owned and handled so many Zegna's that if I had the suit in my hand I'd know within a few seconds, but from pictures its hard to tell. On the other hand, if you were going to fake a zegna, why would you ever use poly anyway?
