Zilli is so classy:
I want to pair the jacket with my classy loafers by ultra-exclusive Artioli, and wear my gold Carrera sunglasses.

Although on a serious note, Zilli does make some high quality garments. There is also Seraphin who also makes for Hermes, Jean-Claude Jitrois, and the now defunct Claude Montana.

Brioni, Kiton and Loro Piana all make the best leather/suede jackets I've found. Zegna, Armani, Seraphin, Valentino, Malo, D&G, etc also do high quality leather jackets. For a good deal less money, Schott Bros, for instance, do nice leather jackets.

I am all about that shirt in the Zilli display! .....

I've heard that Seraphin is up there with the best as well, hence why I'm purchasing one. Hopefully I won't be disappointed.

Their quality is unsurpassed as is their price tag. But, they do provide a replacement collar with every jacket, which is nice.

I don't have much experience with different leather/suede jackets but I'm very happy with the one I have from Loro Piana. I think it's their Schooner model. Very soft and supple suede.
