I'm not sure about terminology, sorry if it's confusing.
Yes, an uncuffed hem should always be at least slightly slanted.

Hi guys - I know nothing about the Zegna suit hierarchy.

 

Which line does this label belong to?

I know nothing about the Zegna suit hierarchy.  Which line is this label from (and is it decent)?

And tell me why?

 

T&A have better quality, so if you can afford T&A go for it.

Thanks for the advice. My main "concern" is when I can wear the walnut pair. They are walnut Strands by Allen Edmonds if that makes and difference. Just not sure what colour suits they are acceptable to wear with.

I have a pair that color (not the AE but an older Gravati pair) and I wear them with medium colors (med grey, blue) or when I rarely wear darker tan trousers. Following the general "rule" that your shoes should be darker than your trousers, I'd avoid wearing them with darker colors (dark navy, charcoal grey, etc...).

I will say this...they rock with denim.

Cuff monograms in a business setting isn't subtle at all. It screams, "prick".

In England my alterations tailor calls it a military cut

I'm looking for a pair of chestnut/brown oxfords, hopefully under $300, but the cheaper the better. Where should I start?

I'm looking at a suit on ebay. It's a 42r but the pants waist is 40in. Can these pants be taken in to 36in or would that mess them up? Thanks.

I always heard no more than 2" either way when altering waist.  It is possible 40" is not the natural waist; however, I would not take the risk

 

edit: Check out this thread.  Lists the general allowances for tailoring any aspect of a suit

If the suit's a 42 then the pants were probably a 36 to start. I'd ask if the pants have been tailored or how much room is left to let the pants out. But more likely I'd pass. 4" is too much to tailor.

^Possibly separates (or custom).
post #15675 of 33197

Thanks for the replies. They're definitely not separates due to the pattern. I tried to contact the seller but he didn't respond. He's a power seller too with 100% feed back. I was assuming originally the pants were 36 but it seems like too much hassle with this guy. I think I'll let it go. Thanks for the help.
