    I'm going to be looking for a light grey summerweight suit, about the color of Tom Cruise's suit in "Collateral". If you aren't familiar with the color, I've provided a link to an image at the bottom. I think I'm going to go with Zegna simply because I have had excellent luck with them in the past. Does anybody know where I can find Zegna fabric swatches for their Spring/Summer collections that might include a similar color? Thanks. Collateral image

    I don't think the books are available online. That said, I feel it is cumpulsory to look at swatches in person, even for simple navy or black. I have looked through the spring/summer 2005 Zegna books in the last week. There is one swatch that resembles the fabric in that movie still you posted, but, it would be difficult to match them for sure based on a movie still. The Zegna fabric I am thinking of looks like the Cruise suit from a distance, and then when you get up close up to it, you see a pale pinstripe of a lighter gray mixed with a dash of cream. The stripes are spaced about a centimeter and a half apart. Very subtle and beautiful. I think that one was 100% wool, "I" range, putting a 2-piece MTM at $2395. For what it's worth...
