Have you ever heard of or seen a ventless suit made by Zegna?

Maybe it's my limited european view on American style icons like the sack suit, but I don't think every ventless jacket is "sack"...

It's more about natural shoulder and so on, isn't it?

Many of the Italian high-end makers used to make ventless stuff by the way.

What do you mean by sacksuit? Do you mean the dartless, natural shouldered coat favoured by the ivy/trad crowd or just a shapeless suit?

The shapeless unvented suit was popular during the late 80s early 90s.

Yes, Zegna has made and still does make a lot of ventless suits.
Have a look on eBay - probably about 50% of the Zegna stuff that you will see there is unvented.

Personally, I don't like unvented jackets as they don't suit my body type, but some people do like them and do look good in them.

Don't know about 6x1 DB, but I do know that one of my first suits was a Zegna mainline unvented 3-button, and one of my first sportcoats was a Zegna Soft unvented 3-button.
