1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Up for sale is a rare Ermenegildo Zegna mainline suit in size 38R. New with tags. Recent model (2011-ish)

    These don't come around often at this price, especially in 38R.

    The suit is basically built to "Styleforum spec." A "Holy Grail" suit.

    It features a slim cut, FULL CANVAS construction, minimally padded shoulders, flat front pants, and double vents

    The icing on the cake is the uber staple solid charcoal wool fabric. It has an amazing soft worsted hand. Zegna sources some of the best fabrics in the world for its suits. (Right from its own mills) The fabric on this suit is no exception. Four season weight. You will not be disappointed!

    The suit is tagged a size 38R US / 48R EU (see measurements below)


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have excellent feedback here

    The MSRP on Zegna suits is $2195, which turns into over $2350 when you factor in local sales tax. So consider this a deal on an staple suit in a rare size.

    $825 shipped to the United States or Canada I sold this grey non staple Canali for $825

    A Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald (only half canvas) will set you back about $998 in store. This Zegna suit is clearly superior in construction (full canvas and better fabric).

    I will ship to the rest of the world at cost. Please add $12 for shipping to the rest of the world (countries that are not the US or Canada).

    PayPal or Postal Money order only. I cannot accept personal payments in PayPal. As is implied with all SF classified listings, the sale is final. Sold as is.

    First one to pay gets the item.

    I will only grant "holds" for those who pay via PayPal eCheck.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hey, what does the fabric feel like? Not sure if it is that rough wool feel.

    It's a very soft worsted wool. Not rough at all.
