Is Trofeo a separate line? I always thought that it was just special fabric for mainline i.e same construction as mainline but better fabric like that 14mil14 for mainline.

you are right...I think he means the Torino line which is slightly slimmer than the Milano line..

Wait now I'm really confused. i though Milano etc were just models of Mainline? I.E all the same construction wise just different fits? I though you only get into differences in terms of construction when you compare Zegna mainline to Zegna Couture and everything else is just fabric?

Get an appointment at Martin Greenfield. Your $3k will go radically farther there and the quality (in my opinion, I own a number of items from both MG and Isaia) is far superior.

The last 5 years that have been three distinct lines within mainline Zegna.. Roma, Milano and Torino.. Roma has been discontinued but was the most forgiving fit.. broader shoulders and chest..the only ones that are left now are the Milano and Torino within Mainline Zegna.. the Milano is slimmer.. natural narrower shoulders, higher armholes, narrower chest... and the Torino fit which is the slimmest and I think is comparable to your RLBL fit.. the only difference from a RLBL is that the shoulders on the torino are natural.. but the armholes are really high.. narrower chest than the Milano and slimmer pants from what the SA at a Zegna store in the bay told me recently..

Ok and trofeo is just a fabric and not a separate line like Zegna Couture right?

Trofeo is fabric, a very very good fabric.

With $3k to burn I would go with Phineas Cole (at $1.5k each) or Samuelsohn, get two suits in navy and dark grey (versatile as odd pieces, not just suit).

Or you can wait for the HK tailors talked about here and get a couple of suits.

I laughed when someone thinks Isaia can be consider 'highly constructed' garment, I hope the presumption is not based on aggressive and vulgar showy 'stitches', quiet a lot of it is also made by machines. Also I don't think one can get more than 1 suit from top Hong Kong tailors. I will suggest if OP is not keen merely on labels, go for Kent Wang suits, I am sure Mr. Wang can find out what are the measurements of an Isaia suits, also lots of fabric choice, and within OP's budget one get definitely get more than one 2 piece suit, and their handwork is one of the best in the high end suiting market, at least a step better than Isaia.
