    Hell All,

    Up for sale is truly a grail item.. and one you will be wearing for years and years. This is a BNWT Ermenegildo Zegna Napoli Couture XXX 2 Button, Double vented suit in a beautiful brown windowpane-esque weave. This is ready for tailoring - the pockets are sewn, the shoulders are still basted, unfinished sleeves. This suit was purchased by Bruce Willis to wear for a movie premier, but was was not tailored in time as he had to wear a different suit. My good friend who is in the same business as Bruce Willis was given many items from Bruce directly... which then this suit was passed to me as it is my size. Unfortunately, I have too many suits and this one would hang in my closet without much use if I chose to tailor it for myself. The suit is tagged a 40R and ready to be altered for your body. Measurements are below. This is truly a fanatic garment and the top of the line offered by Zegna.. This suit would have retailed in the upwards of $4-5K. Price includes USPS priority insured mail. The suit is in 100% perfect condition and is literally ready for red carpet affairs.

    Measurements
    20.5" from pit to pit
    25" from shoulder seam to end of sleeve
    31" from BOC to end of jacket
    18.25" from shoulder to shoulder

    Pants
    15.5" across - 2" to let out
    Legs are unhemmed - Excess of 36" of material.
    Single Pleated and a nice athletic cut

    This was bought for him by his stylist for the premier and I take it that it was ordered a size too small for him. He isn't as big as you think in person. He was slender for the role he was playing during the time. This is seriously a grail piece... This is a steal and I can guarantee you wont find another Couture with this blend for anything near this price.. let alone find one near this size

    But of course, you wouldn't buy this just because of the Bruce affiliation.. it just adds to the coolness. This suit is of the best quality you can buy

    I appreciate it..but you're right! This is hundredS lower than it should be going for. It is an absolute gorgeous suit and nicer quality than my recent Kiton and Brioni suits! This might end up in my closet after all.

    Sorry, not sure how $900 is the "steal of the year" for a suit...

    Also, I don't think Bruce could possibly fit in this. This would fit me size and length... and he's about 40 pounds heavier and a few inches shorter :lol:.


    Cool suit though.

    I'm sorry but I disagree. First, this suit was purchased for Bruce Willis himself... meaning this came from his personal closet. Whether this fit him or not.. it was ordered specifically for him for a very specific event, but was never tailored or fitted for him personally. Again, this is not priced as a collector piece or anything like that.. just a story of how it was acquired... which again, is 100% from the actor's closet.

    And as for a steal and one of the best deals for a suit like this.. yes, I agree this is a STEAL.. and might be the steal of the year. I have NEVER seen a Napoli Couture go for anything close to this price.. let alone a cashmere/wool blend in this size and weave, and again, this is brand new and still basted! Please find me one similar priced in the same ballpark. This is one of the highest quality suits you will find... and I stand by my words saying it beats out my recent Kiton and Brioni suits. Not even taking out the absurd retail price of a Napoli Couture suit of this fabric.. but the quality, fit, and drape alone, this suit stands above everything I have owned and handled.

    He's not that big in person, but he seemed a little sweaty. I think it's a plus that he never wore this item

    I think you'd benefit from a better photo of the front of the jacket, one that clearly shows the left lapel and buttoning point.

    Also thigh, knee and leg opening measurements for the pants.

    Just trying to help, no hate :thumbs-up:
