    How does the Vintage Zegna fabric compare in quality to the Zegna fabric of 2013?

    Thank you for your response. All vintage fabrics were made to last long and they were even heavier. And then they were even more twisted. It was a whole other world. And then this does not crease ever. While today the fabrics are lighter and sometimes there are those that are rubbed away.

    And then the quality of the fabric is hard to describe. When you touch a vintage fabric by side with a modern fabric know what I mean ... I'm feeling difficult to explain. They are emotions.

    ^ That suit looks great. The ensemble would look 10 times better though with a simple light blue shirt.

    Great cut...

    The body positioning might actually accentuate it..

    Sorry if I am dense and am missing the obvious answer but who is the tailor for that?

    And BN Tailor makes very nicely cut suits, I think.
