Northern Virginia can be such a cruel mistress. First shop I went to today had several suits that I liked (not grails by any stretch, but decent enough for someone starting to build a wardrobe), all the coats fit wonderful, the pants...not so much. On to the next shop, I found several Brooks Brothers 1818 orphans and this orphan:
The coat fit me like a glove. Wonderful cloth and high armholes to boot! I couldn't find a thing wrong with it. Pressed, clean, no holes or stains...and unfortunately no pants. Even now, I can't get it out of my mind how well it fit. I searched for several hours for the pants, ultimately turning up lint. Probably only the second or third Zegna suit I've seen in the wild and the first that fit me (not an ebayer, just trying to fill my wardrobe out). I don't know which is worse, not finding anything or finding something great that's an orphan. The worst part though was that had I found the pants, it would have cost me around $20 or $30. /sigh.
it's not a zegna suit just some cheap suit made with zegna cloth
be happy you couldn't find the pants
