I thought that you were talking from experience of this. As I've said, the designers that I've seen Zegna make for (off the top of my head, Dunhill, Valentino, Tom Ford) use their own labels.
I've never been to the Zegna factory, so I cannot confirm this. However, it seems unlikely that these big fashion houses would choose
to leave the Zegna labelling in them and yet unknown brands could choose
to have their labelling replace the Zegna ones.
Just my thoughts. If you could provide evidence to the contrary, I would welcome it.
To the OP, I cannot confirm what I've just written. However, there would be no way that I would be dropping nearly $500 on a "Zegna" suit without prove
that it was Zegna. I'd take my chances on eBay before doing that.
