Having recently seen most of the new Zegna collection, I'm inclined to agree. In some instances, the apparent detailing of the new stuff is actually nicer, but on closer inspection it kind of falls apart. I will say, though that I think Brioni has fallen much further than Zegna comparing their older stuff with their current lines...
