    It is most helpful if posters would include sizes, so I can screen items without waiting for every ebay page to load. Please.

    This is quite an unusual item. But if I did have a Kiton Blzer(which I do not), I don't think I would attach this crest to it.

    Would you?

    I do see where a Kiton collector might want this crest.

    Att: Are you out there kitonbrioni?



    I wont wear it, because it is not really my style.

    Nevertheless I think it looks nice.

    Olive?? Zegna Couture Jacket in Heritage Wool Size 50/40
    gorgeous jacket although i'm pretty sure the seller pulled a scam on me once before. the auction was for a pair of John Varvatos pants. i bidded and lost. a couple days later i got an e-mail from the seller letting me know that the winning bid fell through and that i could purchase the pants since i was the second highest bidder. little did i know at the time that this is an illegal(?) practice among sellers to artificially inflate the bids on their auctions. anyway, just a heads up to any potential bidders. -Jeff

    I have bought from him before with no problems. It's not illegal to offer items to other bidders (they're called second chance offers) if you have more of the same item or the high bidder did not follow through. I have bought and sold items this way before and it's entirely legit. I would suggest you refrain from accusing sellers of illegal actions when you so are ill-informed. Your "heads up" is slandering a legitimate seller with over 99% feedback on more than 3k transactions.

    Is this a real Zegna? Why so cheap?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-ZEGNA-Italia...ayphotohosting


    Because only the cloth is made by Zegna. Only G-d knows who made the suit and he ain't telling. This is a very common scam on ebay and in certain unscrupulous retailers in larger cities across the U.S. of A.

    It's probably real Zegna fabric. It's definitely not an expensive suit made by Ermenagildo Zegna, which is what the seller wants people to think!

    The suit looks to be medium to low quality from the pictures. The tag looks particularly low end.

    I wondered how sellers keep doing this and fooling people. This seller has a 100% Positive Feedback score of 168. Then I thought that if someone that participates in this Forum can possibly be fooled(or at least confused), then the average buyer might definitely think this is a suit made by Ermenegildo Zegna selling for $1500-3500, which is just what the seller wants people to think.
