    Hi everybody,

    What's a good price to pay for a mainline Zegna suit (not Z Zegna)? I assume full retail isn't worth it, but what's a good range for a NWT?

    Hi,
    First post here- quick question and probably a noob question.
    Are Oxblood and Burgundy the same color?

    Thanks!

    $300-500 for me.

    id say more like 500-800 is considered a good by me, 300 is more of a steal i think

    if you can afford it and want better selection and dont have time to bargain shop i think it is quite worth it

    Agreed. I've paid retail for new mainline Zegna in the fabric of my choosing with no regrets.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone here could help me with my predicament. I went to the tailor to get my shirts tapered a bit. I asked him to taper them so they would not look as baggy. He asked me to stand up straight. He pinned the shirt down the sides and asked me if I was comfortable. Then I took the shirt off and gave it to him.

    I got my shirt back and now it fits perfectly when I am standing up; however, due to my belly I am unable to sit down comfortably. The shirts buttons are straining and the placket is mostly open and almost exposing my belly. It fits really tight and is applies a lot of pressure to my stomach. My impression when I took the shirt to the tailor was that he would account for the amount needed to sit down comfortably. Was this presumption wrong? Should I have thought about this or is it my tailors responsibility?

    I know that when someone makes a shirt he takes into account the amount of room needed for when sitting down. I thought that this would be the same scenario. Am I mistaken?

    Thanks!

    Zegna is very good. I don't see paying retail a problem for them.

    A good deal would be under 1k for a suit and around $600 for an SC. If I saw one that fit me for $500 that wasn't black or decade old 3 button, I would snap it up fast.

    He is saying the fabric is fine, but he's not happy that individual consumers are paying about the same for it as he is.
