Where to get Zegna at discount

I recently visited a local Nordstroms with a friend and wandered into the "expensive" suitings area. I tired on a Zegna for fun and it was incredible. The fit and feel were enough to make a person want to burn all of his clothes to spend the insurance money on that single jacket.

Now for the question; does there exist a place where something like this could be found at discount? The saleswoman informed me that they only have two sales a year. And while the discount is steep (33% off), the sales are crazy because everyone is trying to get the same items.

I have looked at Saks Off5th a few times, but they only have the lower quality Zegnas (Z-Zenga, or Zenga Sport or something).

I've never seen a mainline Zegna at an Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, or Filene's before. Maybe it could happen, but I've never seen it.

Sometimes at Off 5th or at NM Last Call stores. I have seen and purchased mainline Zegna at Nordstrom Rack as well but only a select couple of stores.

Zegna makes for others, most notably Dunhill and Gucci. If you get to know the labels, you may find a Zegna made product under another label at a discount. In a bit of self promotion, you can find some Zegna made Dunhill at a discount in my signature line.

I've seen mainline Zegna at Off 5th, but it's rare. You have to check in often, and they never get a whole bunch of them, just one or two mixed in with everything else.

Zegna outlets are generally around 40% off; a bit more in sales periods. Of course, availability is patchier.

I've seen mainline Zegna at Nordstrom Rack, never a suit but a few sports jackets.

Century 21 had a surprising stash of Zegna last time I checked.

Zegna mainline is usually available at NM Last Call. Zegna outlets generally stock their overpriced and inferior "Gritti" line but every so often you see a mainline and even a couture garment. Just saw several mainline and couture pieces at Zegna outlet San Marcos (TX). Actually, I ended up with a mainline Zegna Sport unconstructed jacket-- $975 list less 90%

check around during sale season. In July, I found a Ermenegildo Zegna 3 piece gray suit (small pattern on the fabric) for half off, just under $999. This was at Saks.

This year I bought a kick ass mainline Zegna 15milmil15 POW check suit in my size for $300 at an Off 5th during a 1/2 off clearance event. So it can happen, although I wouldn't say this is common...

That's the one place I've NEVER seen a mainline Zegna.

I guess I'm lucky with my local outlet - loads of mainline Zegna and a small selection of Couture too. Even picked up some Limited Edition shoes there a while back. Just walk past the Gritti stuff.

Holdfast- your outlet sounds fantastic. Would it be worth a trip down south?
Fife and Tayside are pretty bad for menswear and outlets. I have to go to Glasgow or Edinburgh for anything decent...
