    I was at work today, wearing my Z Zegna suit.
    Something fell under my desk, slide my chair back, while still seated, i reach for under my desk and "riiiiiiiiiipppppppp".
    Pics are below.

    I must say, i am appalled by Z Zegna's quality. I have had this suit for just over a year and the way it ripped looks like a material quality issue.
    I will never buy again ZZegna again.

    Ouch, that's gotta be embarrassing.

    Same thing happened to my mate at a party - split his pants - ended up putting his head through the split and found himself with a rather fashionable scarf for the rest of the night. Have you considered this?

    I had the opportunity to handle multiple Z Zegna suits yesterday and I have to say that the quality seems nowhere near the same as mainline Zegna (I must confess I am no expert on fabrics however). It felt like a cheaply made suit, something from the Calvin Klein Macy's collection. Not to mention, all of the suits were Made in Mexico. The store had them on clearance but still wanted an obscene amount of money for them.
