Navy blazer that I had you look at... - Page 2

post #16 of 28
And the thing to remember is this: whether it's canvased or fused or whatever, with the Zegna lines (down market to up market) you will have good fabrics and look better than 99% of the rest of the population. $200 sounds a little much on Ebay if it's the Soft line, but who cares? If you like it, alter it and enjoy it.

You can't get a "soft" sportcoat out of a regular store for less than $300.  But it sounds like h_s has the real deal, not a fused deal.  Sounds like a bargain, man.

Gentlemen, Thank you, you have made me feel much better. I think I will take it to my tailor right now. Thanks again.

Hey H_S, sounds like you got yourself a great deal. I am currently winning this auction but one of my buddies wants me to let him have it because he needs the suit more than I do. Is this suit worth the cash? Is it too "old man" for a mid-twenties lawyer? Thanks. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....22&rd=1

I don't see anything "old man" about it. I am pretty conservatve, stylistically, however.

I think the seller got the suit from an outlet or that sort of thing and just wrote down the actual retail price on the tag. Not sure though. I think the suit is canvas and the windowpane will add interest to my suit collection which consists of solids.

What is the "line" with Ermenegildo Zegna on the inside breast and "Made in Spain" on the inside of the collar? Is this just a Zegna fabric? I'm talking about a DB blazer with shell buttons. I've wondered the same with Cerutti stuff. How do you know if it's this clothing line or just the fabric line, and an unknown maker? Thanks for any help.

I would like to update everyone. I took it to my tailor who assured me that it was canvassed, showed me how to properly do the pinch test, and then opened it up and showed me that it was canvassed. While I was there I got a Zegna formal shirt, spread collar w/pique bib, for $68, very nice sale. What do you think of Barbera? They had a nice looking dress shirt there that I would wear, if it's good quality. Is Barbera worth $68?

Barbera as in Luciano Barbera? Top Marks Barbera as in Hanna Barbera who made Fred Flintstone's shirts - not so cool. ...or did you mean Barba? Also top marks.

h_s- If you don't mind me asking, which tailor do you go to in the Baltimore area? My fiance lives in that area, and I'm up there quite a bit. Would be good to have a second tailor for my 'second home'.

A suit made of Zegna fabric, but made by someone else (usually for the worse) will have a label indicating "Tessuto Ermengildo Zegna" - Tessuto being Italian for cloth. See this suit Tessuto Zegna on Ebay Advertised as Zegna but certainly not made by him. Notice the blue Tessuto Ermengildo Zegna on the left sleeve.

The tailor at George Howard Menswear at the Cross Keys shopping center is excellent. He is top notch as far as I am concerned. He did some very heavy alterations on a Zegna suit that I purchased at George Howard and it looks as good as any bespoke suit I've seen. He goes by Mr. Nick, and he can be reached at 443-418-5180.
