E Zegna Suit Question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

After losing a bunch of weight and being back on the job interview trail I'm in the market for a new suit. I was wondering if this would be a good deal: 

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/CURRENT-Ermenegildo-Zegna-2013-Suit-TROFEO-600-Gray-Stripe-54L-42L-44L-EUC-2995-/380635851147?pt=US_CSA_MC_Suits&hash=item589faa298b

 

It's a hair more than I wanted to spend on a suit, but if it's a really good deal on a quality suit I can justify it.

 

Thanks for the help

You could get a NWT Zegna suit for that price on eBay

Gulp. 54L? Not someone I'd want to run into in a dark alley, even wearing a Zegna suit!

Being 6'5 finding clothes tends to be a little more challenging, and they say it's good to be tall.

Also in anyones experience would it be better to get that suit or one similar off ebay and have it tailored, or goto SuitSupply and get one of theirs new for around the same price?

That's a Euro size - it's a US 42/44L.

That's a difficult question to answer, as it really comes down to fit and to individual preferences.

The Zegna suit should be of higher quality than the Suit Supply suit - the couple of Zegna suits that I have are very well-made with good quality cloth (as one would expect from a large manufacturer of woollen fabric).

However, having said that, the most important question is fit. If you know that a particular Zegna cut fits you well and if a suit for sale on eBay is in good condition, then it makes sense to pick it up. If, however, you happen to know that Suit Supply fits you well but you're not sure about Zegna, then it quite possibly makes more sense to go with the Suit Supply option unless you're willing to take a chance on the fit of the Zegna.
