That's not an authentic Zegna suit... It's a Bagliani suit using Zegna cloth...

I have research this fabric and it seems like it is good quality. How are the quality on the Bagliani suits?

The EZ Cloth suits at Saks off Fifth were only ~$399 a few weeks ago, I'm sure you could probably scoop one up for A LOT cheaper now if that is what you really want.

I cannot purchase enough Trofeo cloth to make a suit for under $400.00. Don't expect much on construction quality.

+1, these are all over outlet stores. They retail at the outlets for $499.99 and you can use coupons on top of that if you really wanted to get one. They are really crappy, though. Gaudy, horrible pick stitching, awful construction, and the cloth is equally poor, shiny and stiff. The seller's retail price is BS, even the tags at the outlet stores suppose a retail of $900.

These suits are going for about $220 here in Dallas, TX at Off 5th Avenue. The store placed these suits right next the to the actual Zegna suits, and you really can't tell the difference. Atleast I can't tell the difference. Sales seemed to be slow, but few people were buying the suit. The store didn't have my size, otherwise I would have purchased one myself.

From what I understand and have seen so far, Trofeo is one of Zegna's top wool suiting offerings and sometimes quite pricey.

Seems like such an unfortunate waste of perfectly good cloth.
