    I was wondering if this is a good suit, because the price seems right to me (more specifically, for my best man). Anyone have any idea of the fit (I've never tried on a Zegna).here

    Not great. Since you are in Boston, why don't you go back to Filene's basement? Aren't they still having the suit sale?

    Johnny, you still looking for that perfect black suit?

    No, this is for my friend, who will also be my best man (one of two, actually). He wants something nice, but is not in a great location to get something nice.

    HRHAndrew, I'll clarify the geographical location of my friend -- it is a place where coming across a Hugo Boss is quite rare.

    Spot your buddy the money, and buy on his behalf from Filenes. They have a 2 week return policy. More than enough time and figure out if that's what he wants (i.e. you get to play stylist.)

    Yeah, the Filene's thing was the original plan -- I picked my brother up a Corneliani there for about $350 and he liked it fine when he visited me about a week after I bought it. I just happened upon this auction by happenstance really and was just wondering. (Personally, I find Zegna way overpriced, but IMO $599 is at least approaching a good deal, you know?).

    Johnny - I'd venture an answer re Zegna cut (my only qualification is having tried Zegna suits on two occassions lately) - I found the cut big in the shoulders, i.e., amply padded, and rather 'boxy' - little waist supression. Interestingly, a Zegna i tried at bergdorf had more of an hourglass shpae than the one at Saks.
