Zegna Sport Coat. Is this "check" fabric in style?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
All,

I am curious to get your thoughts on this Zegna sport coat...a very unique check/square pattern. I cannot determine if it is consistent with the check styles in fashion today. What is this pattern called? Is this pattern "in" or "out" of style? Thanks!

It is innocuous enough and probably not that out of style although it is second hand which might be given away by it appearing in your wardrobe. Expensive for second hand as well.

Totally agree, for a SC

Not a bad looking SC at all. But, as others have said, pricy for a second hand SC, even if Zegna.

The price is about what you can find for a new Zegna SC on sale.

To compare, I bought two Zegna sport coats on the SF B&S board for less than $400 (total for both), and a recent model Oxxford cashmere sport coat on eBay for under $200.

I bought two brand new Zegna suits for around $500 each at the rack. Ive also seen Zegna sports coats routinely around $400-$600 NWT's at the rack and on ebay.

No measurements either.

Agreed that it is pricey. FYI however, there are times that one finds the "perfect missing piece" to his wardrobe. If that's the case, sometimes you just go for it. It's your call though.

I really like the pattern and I think it is versatile and can be a more business cloth or casual. The way it fits will determine where it's appropriate to use. I would love that jacket in a slim, lightly shoulder padded version just a tad on the short side (~1/2") and waist suppressed. I would wear it casually even with denim, etc. Just my 2 cents.

The pattern does not look outdated to me.


You've been on SF for 4 years, and this is the first post? Wow.
