    I purchased a Zegna jacket that only came with two buttons. One that looks like the front closure and one that looks like the inside breast pocket closure button. Is it supposed to come with buttons for the sleeve? The salesperson said that the sleeves didn't need buttons but I'm not certain he was right. Can someone point me in the right direction? :bigstar:

    When Stefano Pilati took over at Zegna Couture, everything became fashion pieces. If you review the catalogue post-2012 you'll notice that the Couture suits were designed without any sleeve buttons on the outside.

    This was basically the time I stopped paying attention to Zegna as a whole.
