I think as a graduation gift my parents are going to help me purchase a MTM Zegna. I've decided to go with either light to medium grey or a navy chalkstripe. If you're familiar with the color Sean Connery is most recognizable in from Goldfinger, the grey is just barely darker than that. I'll probably go two button if I go grey, or three button rolled to the second if I go with the navy stripe. I'll certainly have a second pair of pants made. Do you think I should get one with buttons for braces and without belt loops? If I do that, can I still get the belt loops, but leave them off so that they can be attached later if I decide I would be better served by belt loops? I'm definitely going to go with side vents. Should I go for a ticket pocket? It will not have hacking pockets. Should I go for a vest? The purchase is still several months away, but I'm just trying to gather my thoughts. Also, do we think that the Zegna MTM prices will return to more reasonable levels when the dollar becomes stronger? Thanks for your input.
