    Isn't a 10 yr old Zegna suit going to have the updated Label and Roma/Mila fit? I usually fetch more than $110 for those preowned. I just saw a dead stock zegna tuxedo with that label show up at my local tj maxx and it sold for $799, and I've also seen that Label at Nordstrom Rack. Just saying if that's the Label they come with many people wouldn't view them as 10 yrs old

    in a thrift environment I agree wholeheartedly but this is a stock buyout so a little more deliberate consideration I think is warranted.

    Its the rectangular label with the jacquard Z behind it, not the newest without the Z.
    Canalis are blue labels.

    a tuxedo is a cat of a different color tho. and it sounds like flavor of fabric is a bit of a black box.

    i'll admit i'm enjoying seeing the responses, an interesting case study. @SpooPoker curious what you will decide.

    I bet that you still maintain creative control over the listing titles. You are too OCD to relinquish that duty.

    I disagree. My thinking, to use a poker analogy, is that any jackass can play aces preflop all in. But it's the pro who can skillfully navigate 60-40 (and 40-60) situations over the long run who'll make more money.

    Re: suit lot. Figure $150 after fees is on the low end of the scale. I know I've sold plenty of used Zegna suits for more than $150, and these are NWT. I'd question what the seller means by "tags," though. Suits have lots of tags, and I wouldn't want to find out the only tag still attached is this one:
