It is a 2011 Zegna Soft. Real or fake? Thoughts?


The cloth is from Zegna but the suit is not made by Zegna. Many people mistakenly interpret the material to mean that it is a Zegna suit. A "real" 2011 suit by Zegna would have a different label.

The other poster is correct---Zegna Soft hasn't been made in more than a decade. You may be thinking of Z Zegna which is a trendier, less expensive, and less well-made line of Zegna. The Z Zegna line of suits is fused as yours probably is.

Pretty true to size. The 5 last, which the PA is on, runs somewhat long and narrow. Not sure on the strands, but I think they have a last guide on their site.

So I thought I'd get a suit made up on a recent trip to Hong Kong late last year. I walked into the store, armed with most of the basics this forum dishes out to newbies. I opened my mouth to speak to the guy, and...the next thing I knew, I was back in my hotel room with a suit bag hanging in the closet. Supposedly, ten days had passed. And, supposedly, a couple of fittings as well.

How did I do? Besides the jacket sleeves, I can't help but shake the feeling it's a little too boxy. Maybe something about the quarters being too closed?



Would appreciate some comments before I took it to the tailors about those sleeves.

Could the navy vest still work with the black pants and jacket if there are small navy flowers in the tie I'm wearing?

no. sorry, man.

Quarters too closed. Buttoning point is a bit high. Boxiness or not is really subjective, on average it's fine. There is a slight break under the elbow of the left arm, is it always there?

What is a good shirt color for a dark grey pinstripe suit? This will be worn as business professional for interviews or similar events.

Mostly an SW&D guy, but I'm trying to get some nicer stuff for work, though $ is an issue. Found these on yoox and they generally don't look too offensive. Any thoughts on Ciro Lendini or experience with the brand? is this thing gonna fall apart on me or does it actually look terrible in person?

Can't imagine I'll get much help but can anybody ID this guy? I see him in menswear catalogs and ads all the time.

What's the general opinion on Alfred Sargent footwear, namely the Country range?
post #6809 of 33197
I'm a pretty fashion forward guy but I bought this navy blue Burberry trench and nothing I try seems to go! The trench itself is short length and really dark navy, I want to wear it kinda business casual like with some slacks and button up....etc.... Could even go with a suit. Could you give me some slack/shirt/cardigan combos as well as suit/shirt combos?

BTW I'm not a skinny guy but I'm not enormous either : 6'1, 190 lbs, shirt size: L


Thanks guys in advance .

Hi there, does anyone know what kind of jacket this guy is wearing? Does anyone recognise a designer? Thanks.
