E. Zegna for Saks. Different than E. Zegna with no Sak label?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just wondering what the significance of the "made for Saks" label is. I picked up a couple of for ~65% off today ($1100 and $900). Wondering if I should be worried/know about anything?

there has been a lot of posts over the years about this but anyway..............

A pic of the label would lead to a definitive answer but if you are talking about a Saks labeled suit with a separate label for Ermenegildo Zegna fabric ("tessuto"), then there is a difference. If you are talking about a suit labeled Ermenegildo Zegna for Saks, then there is no difference between that and a Zegna suit (not taking into consideration the different quality levels/country of manufacture of Zegna).

Thanks. It's definitely a mainline zegna, not just the fabric (I accidentally purchased one of those before).

Wait, so instead of a crappily-made suit with Zegna cloth, this is a Zegna suit with crappily made cloth?  

 

I am totally confused.

 

If you post the label, you'll have an answer in a jiffy.

Ha sorry I was not clear. It is a mainline zegna in every way as far as i can tell (construction and fabric) with a Saks Fifth Avenue label in additon to the normal Zegna label stitched on the inside, purchased a regular Saks store. I was just curious is the "Made For Saks" is of any significance with respect to the quality of the garmet.

No.  "Made for Saks" is just a way for Saks to get its name in the garment.  I have a solid navy Canali suit that says "Canali for Mitchells of Westport" (http://mitchellstores.com/) on the inside of the coat and the suit is a Canali in every possible way - it just also says Mitchells.  I think you can be confident that the suit is a standard Zegna make.

I would like to say no because some brands will do that like "Brioni for Saks/Neiman marcus/Bergdorf goodman" and its essentially the same thing. They might have fabrics/patterns that are exclusive to the particular store but in general they are the same. Zegna I'm not so sure though because I've only ever seen a plain "Ermengildo Zegna" even on the items at saks. But like the above posters have said if you post a label we can figure it out
