    99.9% its not a sample. Very rare do GV samples surface from that time frame. The comp tag would have either been under the neck, under that black "Made in Italy" label, or inside one of the pockets. Still, samples had an entirely different label and just by looking, its not a sample. The care tags from that time frame were very easy to remove, so I am not surprised that its missing.

    Could someone verify if this is a 'real Zegna' suit?
    Been lurking awhile.. Finally figured I'd register and actually post. Some great information here.. Found this suit for a heck of a deal.

    Attached are the images. Would greatly appreciate some insight.


    The first four pictures are of the Jacket, and the last being inside the pants.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey all.. Sorry if I originally posted in the wrong area.. I was curious if someone could verify if this is truly an authentic Zegna Suit. I've attached a few pictures and would truly appreciate any insight.

    If by some chance its not, any additional information would be helpful!

    FYI Bianco Brioni is Brioni's Chinese imposter stepbrother.


    Yup... See also Gino Valentino, Giorgio Napoli, Gianni Genevie, Giuseppe Versace, Mario Palaso, Emropio Amrani, Mario & Luigi, etc. all made to look like famous Italian lux brands....NOT Made in Italy of course.

    I have spent the last few hours digging through forums like this and askandy, and still can't really get a good idea of how much of the stuff floating out on ebay is fake/mis-representations or not. Would appreciate any advice on this item I am looking at, Zegna windowpane suit:

    Upwards of $2400 new at full retail. It's pretty ugly though.

    Site looks like a Polish copy of Ebay.
