    Gents,
    I came into a Z Zegna sc that is my size, I'm a size 58 so this is a rare sighting. I think I am a fit enough big guy to wear this, so the only question left how much would you pay for a fused jacket with high end name brand? Thanks!

    A hypothetical question?

    Myself, not a lot properly. Z is a diffusion line and it's fused. I certainly wouldn't pay a premium for a glued mass produced something or other just because of a name brand.

    Nothing. I pay for clothes, not for labels.

    If this particular jacket is your style and fits you flawlessly, so be it. Just don't overpay for the brand name. Even you've admitted to yourself that it's a fused, run-of-the-mill piece. Ask yourself: would you still buy this garment, at the price for which it's being offered, if it had no Zegna label attached? If you can't answer in the affirmative, you should save your money for something you actually would buy.

    I purchased one a few years back. Cheap suits tend to out themselves very quickly, and this one sure did. I didn't buy it expecting the equal of a 'real' Zegna, but I was expecting better than a generic 'ACME Men's Wearhous' offering.

    Would. Not. Repeat.

    How would you differentiate Z Zegna from Zegna
    Is it the Label inside?
    Other details?

    Thx

    Real Zegna is going to have much better fabric and sturdier construction. It also looks better.

    Thx for the reply
    There is a local Zegna shop that has 40% discount here
    So i wanted to check if i get "real" proper Zegna not just Z Zegna
    I assume that i should look at the label right. I mean if it is Z Zegna it will be labeled like that


    Thx
