    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Was sick of dealing with that. I have a manager buy all my stuff now. They know what they're doing and usually open up a register just for me. However, it has to be on a certain day at a certain time.

    They price fairly and generally take everything I bring... Maybe consider talking to your locations manager about a similar arrangement.

    $50 for shell AE's? Why not. Costumer service rep confirmed 1) they are not black and 2) there's no holes in the soles

    Can someone help me out as soon as possible (like in the next hour!). I'm sure someone explained in the past - how do I tell from a zegna tag whether or not it is part of a suit or a blazer or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    Says on it on the very bottom

    will say suit or jacket, at least on the recent ones. As can be kind of seen on the very bottom of this

    Got to the register to pay and found out it was half off. No idea where this came from or how it made it to half off day, because it surely was not at this store last week. I'm not complaining, though!

    Best part?

    It fits! :slayer:

    Thanks! Had @330CK not found one several years ago, I never would have known about them either. Would have bought it regardless, though. Such an awesome piece.

    Thanks moose, sadly the ebay picture only goes as far down as the material. My feeling is that it's a blazer. Helluva ethrift if so. Thanks again. For some reason I thought that another part of the tag gave it away as well.

    I won't blow it up, but I think I see the one to which you're referring. It looks to me like a jacket, though I'd still pass on it. Personally, not crazy about it, it's older (Zegna Soft) and unvented.

    I did, however, just receive a great recent Zegna from the UK the other day :happy: Pictures when I get around to it!

    Oh, and great pictures @highvoltorb! Congratulations on the nuptials! Best wishes to you both. On a side note, I think you contacted me to make a pocket square months ago. So sorry about that, it's been a crazy year. If it weren't you that contacted me, I'm sorry to whomever it was!
