    Is anyone out there familiar with Gigli suits, or Gigli clothes in general? I have heard the name occasionally but never owned or tried on a Gigli piece. I'm asking because there is a tannish Gigli suit on Yoox that I have my eye on - at under $300 I'm sure it is not Kiton or Zegna quality, but since I would likely only wear a tan suit a few times a year it doesn't make sense to go top-of-the-line.

    Anyways, I would appreciate any comments as to quality, fit, style, etc. - thanks.

    As far as I know Gigli suits are still made by Zegna (equivalent to a Zegna Soft.)

    The cuts are usually pretty standard - it is the fabrics that make Gigli stand out. I have seen Gigli items that I really like. My only complaint with the suits (other than the fact that they are fused) is the single large cuff button that they usually have.
