Zegna Labels ID's for eBay purchasers (Graphic Intensive) - Page 12

post #166 of 196


Any ideas what this tag indicates? I see above that the Roma fit indicates its a few years old, and it seems to have been made for a Spanish retailer. Over in the advice forum it was suggested that it may have been custom/mtm because it has 18.5 inch shoulders (my size) but measures nearly 44 inches around the waist, which is very big for a drop 7 52R jacket. Any indication of this? Trying to decide whether it's worth investing in adjusting the fit as it is in pristine condition and cost £80.

Hey gents,

Could anyone help with the age of the zegna suit? Much appreciated!

Between mid-90s to early 2000s, likely closer to late 90s.

Thanks, any opinions about the quality?

Quality is good. But fit/cut may be dated.

They probably date from early 2000s for the following reasons:

- Zegna changed fabric tags in 2012, and you have the previous version
- That version of the fabric tag was used from early 2000s until 2011
- In the mid-2000s, the black Zegna label had a large Z in the background
- After Zegna stopped using the large Z, it used white pick stitching to attach the label
- Since the tag you have still uses black thread, I don't think it was made after the large Z phase
- I think "Travel" was a relatively newer model, so I would suspect it's closer to mid 2000s

I am by no means an expert; I just happen to have handled a number of Zegna suits in the past. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks for replying. Whatever year they are it's not bad value at £27.50 each. Nice for the local pub this time of year!!!

Just wanted your guy's opinion on this. I think I found a suit that might be fake. It looks like they stitched the correct labels on it to make it look fake but you can see the stitching around the label. 

 

Here is the ad

In this picture you can see black stitching around the white stitching

 

Not sure if this is also a tell but you can see the black stitching near the bottom of the label

 

What do you guys think?

 

Merry Christmas btw

That's a Zegna tag.

Other than the fabric/model tag, pretty much the lining color of the jacket, inside stitching and "multiseason" label are as expected from Zegna mainline.  They do have a facility in Spain.  It's legit.

Ok thanks guys. The reason I ask is couldn't someone who knows enough about the brand fake it by taking legit tags, the EZ tag, the model ID tag, the made is Switzerland/Spain/Italy tag and sew them onto a suit that is cheaper and pass them off as a Zegna. Of course the only way to tell would be to recognize construction, the lining, and the fabric. 

 

Maybe this is the wrong thread because this is a Zegna labels thread. I'm just thinking if anyone were to fake a suit, the label would be the easiest things to fake considering its a suit. 

 

But it's interesting now that I read through this whole thread, I'm seeing a lot of sellers advertise a suit made of Zegna fabric as a Zegna made suit using the Zegna fabric label. Thats something cool I didn't know about.

You will often see a lot of "made with Zegna fabric" suits online, esp on eBay.  They may have Zegna fabric and that's about it.   The ones that I believe Saks Off Fifth used to sell as I'm not sure if they still do, were of decent quality at their price point but many others are suspect at best.
