    Oi, that definitely sounds cheaper than I've ever heard for reweaving! I have one garment with a very large rewoven patch, and it's flawless. Was probably quite expensive to reweave, but you really can't tell where it is unless you look on the wrong side (it's an unlined jacket so it's obvious from the inside). Currently my "reweaving" pile consists of a Kiton cashmere sc - which is worth the money to do it right - and a Samuelsohn suit, which isn't a high priority. I do expect to pay as much for the reweaving on the Kiton as I paid for the jacket, which wasn't much really, but will still hurt. :( May send it out to Chicago or something, finding a local reweaver has been daunting.

    Man, darning sweaters can be fun, but at 5 bucks I might have someone else do it! :lol:

    I would switch around Zegna Soft and Z Zegna. Although anything Z Zegna will by default be newer than Zegna Soft since it replaced it, the quality of Zegna Soft is better (i.e. half-canvass v. fused)

    High end, made in England. Is the suit a 40/41R?

    Stuff is pretty nice. Sold at Saks. Hield Bros. is a English RTW maker from what little I've seen of it.

    It must be between Glen Morangie and Loch Lamond, Just south of Glen Garioch, and north of Macallan. About an hour drive from Glen fiddich but if you want to go from Laphroiag, you have to pass from Glen livet.

    Definitely been there. More than once. In fact, taking a tour as we speak...

    Just so you know, I repped your comment because it was too epic...and drinkable, neat.

    Not really into [​IMG], but just thought that I'd mention that I've got a Ermenegildo Zegna Napoli Couture shirt 16 /41 or so (item description has all the measurements) starting at $40 mixed in with my eBay stuff right now. I can pull it if anyone on here has an approximate straight up trade for something badass that's in line with the measurements in my profile. Lemme know.

    Thanks, -M-
