    Looks like a used Z Zenga short. I think the label is older to. The price is the starting price. Who knows what the final price will be.

    It's something about that tag that doesn't sit right with me.

    If you mean the inside pocket tag the angle makes it hard to judge anything but it doesn't seem obviously wrong.

    The label is old I think. Check the Zenga label thread there might be an old Z Zenga label to compare to.

    had a very similar suit awhile back - it's real, the angle and flash on that photo is just off. if you want more photos, just ask the seller - sometimes they'll post some or email them to you. would agree it's not the super-newest thing, but I was surprised by some of the touches put into the suit I saw, and this one looks to have some of the same.

    don't think about getting it for the bottom bid - think about the most you'd really be willing to pay, then bid that - and that's the best way to actually win, even against snipers, because if it goes over what it's worth to you it's not worth it.

    The label is valid. I have a jacket with the same label. It's an older Z Zegna label. I can't say for certain that this suit is genuine, but it most likely is since the Z label is a cheaper Zegna line. Zegna is a label less faked than most as it's not as well known to the common person as an Armani or Burberry label, and this is a sub label making it all the less likely a fake.

    If in fact it said "Zenga" as you guys mistakingly put, that would be another matter.:D
