Question about Zegna Suits on Ebay

Hi Guys,

First post here. I've been browsing the archives for several weeks and have already learned a ton.

Quick question. The following ebay seller is offering what are said to be Zegna suits:

http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZthepresenttense

What concerns me is that each Zegna label has the word "Cloth" above it. Does this mean that the suits could actually be from some other company, simply using Zegna fabric? Or is "Cloth by Zegna" a legit Zegna line?

Thanks for the help.

Sorry to disappoint, but the suits are made from Zegna fabrics, but are not made by Zegna. This is a very common e-bay scam and one that I see from time to time here in certain NYC retailers (typically the ones who advertise by sidewalk flyering).

Exactly, and I find it dishonest to represent it like that.

BlueBerry Boutique used a similiar line on me preforum and the suit is crap.

Also, it creeps me out when sellers are wearing the clothing in the ad.
