    I just purchased a brioni jacket from Saks and noticed that there is extra fabric in the pocket along with an unmarked plastic bag with buttons. I have never seem this with my other suits (typically zegna buttons come in a zegna bag). Did you think someone altered the jacket then returned it? Picture of what I found below. Sorry if this is a super stupid question.

    I have bought many Brioni sport coats with a swatch of jacket fabric in the pocket. Also included were sleeve buttons and an extra coat button. Seems to be a regular practice for Brioni. Enjoy your sport coat.

    I keep those swatches (and (leftover) buttons) in a small drawer. Handy for reweaving damage to your jacket or trousers.

    Interesting fabric by the way. Should post a fit pic :)
