    Zegna soft was a line introduced for younger clientele in the early 1990's. I think this line made it to around mid 2000's (being surplanted by Z Zegna). It was not as good quality as the mainline Zegna, but was not too bad. If the suit is in good condition and not too dated, I dont think it is a bad score.

    Yes, that is true.

    I see you got rid of your avatar, such a shame you did not keep the memory of a true prick alive. I understand though, you dont want your good name sullied by the mugshot of a highly unscrupulous character :laugh:

    Ok. Thanks, It looks maybe worn once or twice, its classic flat front single breasted so it pretty much timeless. I feel pretty good with my $7 purchase.

    all the RL/BB in the thrifts near me are doubled in price compared to other brands ($8 a pop), I typically don't pick them up unless they fit me perfectly and are in excellent shape.

    Good haul though.

    A quick run to the thrift store this morning yielded this: an Oxxford Grey Flannel Suit "The Crittenden" for Wilkes Bashford. Really good shape with no stains or holes. 1/2 inch red mark (crayon, tomato sauce?) on one of the pocket flaps that should come out at the dry-cleaner. I was able to scratch most of it away but will leave the rest to the professionals.

    Tagged as a 46L. 3/2 Roll. Super 120's. I measured the waist at approx 37 or 38 with some room to let out. Bit darker than shows in photo.

    Way to big for me. Open to offers.
