Zegna "MTM" experience - Page 3

post #31 of 37
There ARE size tags in Zegna MTM. Mine says "50". But I am absolutely sure that my suit is fully MTM. You must have been measured and you must have seen the "measurement" sheet that the tailor filled out when you were measured. Those numbers are entered into a computer at the Zegna factory and the material is cut by computer to those exact measurements. Forget the tag. Further, the coat and trousers could have come seperately for any number of logistic reasons. I don't expect that Zegna would cheat you. Again, if you're not happy, take it back.

I have two Zegna MTM trousers, and they also have size tags. However, since the differences from the RTW sizing model that I requested could not have done by an alterations tailor, I am also very sure that they haven't given me altered RTW. The difference between my trousers and RTW is beyond my abilities to put into words, sorry. It has something to do with the fact that the RTW trousers didn't fall in a straight line on the back side.

Just piling on, but I've had MTM from Zegna, Hickey Freeman, Polo, Oxxford, and Luciano Barbera, and all of them have had size tags.

I just wanted to add: if Chicago Zegna is like Düsseldorf Zegna, you shouldn't have any problem getting this rectified. When I ordered my first pair of trousers, I was a walk-in, they didn't know me. Yet they wanted no down-payment, not even a signature on an order-form. They only asked for a phone number to call when the trousers were ready. A single garment means nothing to them. What they want is a repeat customer. It is worth some effort to them to get your pattern down properly, because once they have made you a suit you like you have a strong incentive to go back. If you order one suit per year for the next ten years, one scrapped suit is no problem at all, and they are smart enough to know it (other retailers sometimes aren't, though).

I've only done trousers from them. The fabrics are great (Carlo Barbera, you know) and often extremely interesting. The make of the trousers is good but not superlative.

If it's MTM, then there should be a size tag. Full bespoke, obviously, will not have a size tag. Same goes for shoes.
