1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    It's a tessuto zegna. Zegna fabric, but most likely fused construction. It does looks nice, but the construction, and thus durability, might be a little iffy.

    Well, if it was a two button, I'd probably get it. I posted here a while ago that I thought the 3 button was taking over and I did an unscientific proof by searching on ebay. I came up with a LOT more 3 button than 2. I have enough 3s.

    Button stance seems very high, even for a 3B.

    seems pretty typical machine made 3 button suit to me. It's Zegna fabric, but not made by Zegna. I would not get it.

    Yes, that button stance is much too high.

    johnapril: I don't plan on buying it. But, it's far from being crap.

    Sorry, but it is. This is below Zegna Soft, or whatever the lowest line Zegna is. It's machine made and is not a high quality suit.

    The machine made part doesn't bother me. E-Zegna machine makes most, if not all, of its suits. It's the fusing part that bothers me. A suit is an investment. Why invest in a suit that isn't an investment?

    I expect that a number of the buyers believe that they have bought a genuine Zegna suit and are pleased as punch at their good fortune.

    i've seen a number of these on ebay-- the only thing Zegna on them is the cloth-- and nothing else. I would avoid at all costs.
