Hi,

I own several Corneliani shirts, I went to a Zegna shop last week and I noticed the shirts have the same herringbone fabric and tones, and shirts look same collar, same cut,same cuff, same cut on the cuff etc.same everything!

I strongly suspect both are made by the same factory.

Are them?

Corneliani probably uses Zegna fabric for their shirts, but I was told that they make their own shirts.

That is what Zegna seller told me... But I thought Corneliani was superior!

Both brand shirts are completely same! I strongly suspect they comes from the same factory.

While people's opinions may differ I'd put them both at about the same level, with maybe a slight edge to Corneliani. Wouldn't surprise me though if they used Zegna fabrics though: many manufacturers use Zegna cloth in shirts & suits.

The buttons on my last Corneliani shirt were plastic. Unacceptable at that price.
