You should be able to tell which one has "more timeless styling" just from looking at them.
Well that's the thing - I am not sure if the E Zegna I was looking at was an accurate picture because it's been surprisingly hard to find a pic of one. I've edited my original post to remove the styling as it is entirely more subjective than quality. Thanks.
Can you(or anyone else) speak to the quality and comparison of both? I've read Belvest in the Suit Heirarchy thread Belvest is one tier above, but other places claim they are nearly equal. For this reason I'm inquiring regarding which suit I should choose in terms of durability, quality, & feel.
Yes, a 2013 Belvest black label suit vs this Milano
Any thoughts on whether patch pockets would look a little strange on a grey herringbone jacket? Patch pockets on a blue blazer look quite nice, although I am am not sure about sports jackets with a plain herringbone weave?
Does this suit look dated? Is the gorge too low or the lapels an older shape?

Lapels are a little too wide in my opinion, and the three buttons come down to preference.
That many patterns would become too confusing, I imagine.
Beautiful ... and wonderful colors.
In general which of these are more frowned upon on SF? Tie without jacket, or suit without tie?
Also what do people think about getting an odd (light gray) tweed waistcoat made to use just as a generic piece, and wonder if it'd be alright to wear in non wintery months, either with a jacket or without. I think if it's light enough and somewhat subtle it should be fine? Or should I keep tweed only for winter/colder months?
Something like this:
