I would love to actually see more suits with super 100's in heavier fabrics and flannels, I can't wait to see your items. Any chance the pants can have double forward pleats ?

I've been looking at eBay for a while now hoping to get a cheap used coat. Zegna is on my list and I've noticed that about many of the jackets I've seen (many of which look to be orphaned suit jackets that people are trying to pass off); quarters are quite closed.

We may consider some super 100's in the future, but for now the vast majority of people want the higher #'s. We feel that 120's is a good balance. We will have one flannel, but again, for our debut we are trying to appeal to a large audience, and therefore double forward pleats are not in our consideration at this time... sorry...

And that is just the strangest thing.

Check out www.Zegna.com if you haven't already. Look at the mainline collection: you'll see that the suits, as worn by each model, have visible waist suppression and open quarters. And yet these so-called Master Tailors who take your measurements insist on producing blocky, unflattering sacks if you have even a hint of a waistline! Unacceptable!

Fortunately, I live in Sydney, where the Southern-Italian-styled Herringbone suits (as worn by Guido) present a satisfactory alternative.

BTW Avoid any suits/odd jackets from the Zegna Soft collection if you don't want fused coats.

The problem is that Zegna does not use the standard thread-count ratings. Apparently, Sartoria is their 19-micron wool; Trofeo, their 17 micron; and 15 MilMil 15; their 15 micron Super 150 wool.

You could be right, but the feel of Trofeo is like no other Super 100 wool I've tried.

Generally though, for everyday working fabric, I'd go Sartoria or Traveller Micronsphere. Trofeo shines fast and furious and Trofeo Silk (from personal experience) does not last very long.
