    he means it is not a zegna made suit. it is a suit made with fabric bought from the zegna fabric mills. thats actually how zegna started out, as a fabric manufactured. lots of companies buy fabric from them and make their own suits.

    ^ The label in spoiler tag picture says "Tessuto by Zegna," which means "Fabric by Zegna."

    All the recent Zegna stuff has a plain black logo patch. Should look something like this:

    By SF standards, not good at all. Probably fused. Where did you find the suit? If I recall correctly, these suits don't have any manufacturer's tag, and rely on the Zegna name to make sales. They were fused.

    You could easily get a half canvas PRL for $600.

    Does it have a maker's tag? Or is it a dreaded unlabeled suit? You do occasionally run across some nice suits like Caruso Sartorio Parma which have the Zegna fabric label.

    I suppose. Why not just do a mail in return if you can't make it back to Monaco?
