Possible fake zegna suit?

A while back a picked up a really mint zegna suit out thrifting, and taking a good look at it, i have a feeling it might be fake (albeit a a very high quality fake). Firstly, the quality is excellent and appears to be up to real zegna standards. The fabric is great, the stitching is immaculate, very nice, subtle pic stitching around the lapel and on the edges of the lining, and the pinch test reveals that it is fully front canvassed. On the other hand, the E in Ermenegildo appears to be of the infamous blocky variety, though it appears the lines MIGHT be extending left as they should be (i cant tell the way its on there) and there is no fabric tag (though i am certain it is in fact 100% wool). Do I have a legit zegna or is it just a very high quality fake?

Do you mean there is no additional fabric tag? Material should be listed on the normal in pocket tag. IIRC only special fabrics get a separate label. So trofeo etc. I can't remember if the basic fabrics would have a wool label

Perhaps it's a Japanese super fake?
