Quote (johnapril @ Mar. 31 2005,07:38) "Cut the word pattern; replace it with the word model. Â In MTM programs, you choose from a model (eg, 3-btn, 2-btn, lapel style), you select custom options (eg, ticket pocket, functional buttonholes on cuffs), you choose a fabric from a swatch book, your measurements are taken, and a suit is made like that. Â A pattern is not cut down from a size 38 to a size 37. Â A model is made to your measurements" I am very suspicious that this is the case with Zegna. Â The label in my supposedly MTM jacket says 48. Â The receipt states a 48 jacket. Â I am not a 48. Â I tried on the 48 (for the measurements) which needed to be altered significantly. Â The tag in the pants says 46. Â The receipt also says 46 pants. Â I tried on the 46 (again for measurement purposes), these too required significant measurement modifications to fit. Â The jacket and pants arrived separately, several days apart. Â Why would this be the case if they were made together to my specifications? Â And, finally, the turnaround was less then 4 weeks. Â I figure I got their standard pattern with a few minor alterations.
