    I have one just like this, same color. Great square.
    Nice. I love stuff like this, I wish our climate allowed me to wear it more often. Arriving in a few days will be what I'm sure is the most badass, 100% cashmere Ermenegildo Zegna blazer ever made! I was looking for ties at the Zegna outlet a few hours from me and spotted it as I glanced at the rack of blazers. I threw it on and as I was walking toward the mirror I said to the SA "I usually don't try on jackets without a dress shirt because they look like..." and then I stopped mid-sentence when I saw how well it fit even with a polo on. It looked good with jeans, too, and I usually hate blazers with jeans. It also needed zero alterations. I debated on buying it, but ultimately left without taking it home. I lasted about 30 hours or so before buying it over the phone. I figured I'll eBay some of my blazers I never wear to make it more financially sensible. Can't wait to show pics.

    At my local Zegna outlet, they have this cream and grey check, 100% cashmere sport coats with the **** COUTURE markings and, I swear, the material is just divine. The drape is almost liquid.

    Appropriately, it's priced way out of my league - even reduced it's like $2K (from $6K or something?). I ogle it whenever I visit with a *sigh*.

    First pair of Vass shoes. As good as the photos maybe, they look even better in person.

    I'm going out of town in 2 days and won't visit until after I return, but even then - taking photos in a store? I'll feel like a creep. Hmmmm...

    This sounds similar, but it's kind of a gray/brown large check. Brown elbow patches, unstructured. Can't remember if it had the couture markings - but the full retail was significantly less than 6k, so I'm assuming not couture line. I don't think I've ever experienced an off the rack fit like this before, especially with a polo shirt underneath it.

    I've seen Zegna couture suits for for $1500 at the outlets (but not the Zegna outlets). The fabric does feel like butter to the touch; it's great stuff.

    very nice Sartorios! did you get them from yoox, other sources? I bought an Italian blue sartorio on yoox recently that has an excellent trim fit, and the shoulders are settling down nicely after a couple wears.

    I managed to stay away from the pants, but they had some really great patterns from what I could tell.


    The Neiman Marcus outlet near me has Zegna blazers a lot cheaper than the actual Zegna outlet, but nowhere near the selection/sizes, obviously.

    Zegna Couture does have some superlative pieces. i bought a jacket at the Orlando outlet that i thought was 100% cashmere, when i got home i discovered it was a cashmere/vicuna blend. hate it when that happens :D

    Here she is...they left the store security tag on when it shipped, so I have to make a trip to the other Zegna outlet that's closer to me to get it removed. Hopefully I get a free tie out of the process. The iphone photos don't do it justice.
