Zegna & isaia

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to add to my basic wardrobe with a navy or black blazer. I already have a blue pinstripe (Brooks Brothers), a half-lined charcoal SC (BB), a black cashmere 2B SC (BB) and a brown tweed SC (CK Collection). At this stage, I'd rather buy close to the best and not have to worry about upgrading in the near future (5-10 years), and have found that Canali, Zegna, and Isaia complement my slim build the best. So how much would you guys pay for a simple, 2 or 3B blue or navy SC? AKA: What's reasonable? and what's a good deal? I have no immediate time frame.

About two years ago on EBay I paid $450 for an Oxxford 120s blazer and about $550 for an unconstructed Agnona cashmere blazer. I thought these were good deals for EBay.The most expensive EBay blazer I've seen was $750 for a Barbera from 'worlds finest' (not cashmere). Ian will sell the Attolinis for about $200 more. Hope this helps.

I bought my Zegna navy blazer at N-M last call for $560 - 52% cashmere/48%silk - more than I would normally spend, but I had to have it. I have several other sportcoats and suits from each of the three makers you list - I too am particularly fond of their fit - for which I've paid a low of $119 for a Zegna nearly identical to the one above, except in fawn with a creme windowpane to a high of $940 for an Isaia navy suit. Average for sportcoats/blazers - $250ish, suits $600ish. Granted, it takes patience and many shopping excursions to find the better deals.

you can occasionally find an isaia basic for 300ish, but you have to be willing to search and wait awhile.

I will add that the Gian-Luca (fused) suits are often available at Nordstrom for under $300, saw many at the $240 level during the Anniversary sale, I'm just not that fond of them

I would choose suits that fits and looks good then I'll consider the price.
