    Hi rodedidi, Cool breeze has beat me to it somewhat. All I can add is that it appears that your fabric tags are genuine.


    I have done a quick scan on eBay looking for examples of your label and I found one from what appears to be a reputable seller.

    Zegna Label

    I would say that what you've been looking at is a genuine item. I've got several Trofeo suits, a Summer Trofeo and a Trofeo Silk (I've not seen a Trofeo Cashmere yet) and the tags are similar.

    Of course I could be wrong....

    Hi Clint,

    Trofeo Cashmere is a winter offering. Didn't see it till a few weeks ago at Varino in Chatswood Chase.

    Probably too heavy for this climate anyway.

    Thanks guys, just one last question, how much do zegna trofeo suits retail for? and what would be a good price for a new one on ebay? And is there a huge diff in quality between the trofeo line and the 15mil line? and how much do those retail for?

    Hi rodedidi, I personally can't say whether you'll enjoy the Trofeo than the 15 MilMil 15 line, but I know that I have.

    I have a couple of 15 MilMil 15 suits and 3 Sportscoats and they are very nice. I also have cashmere Zegna sportscoats and the 15 Mil Mil 15 compare favourably to them.

    I have included a URL of the different fabrics that Zegna currently employ.

    Zegna Fabrics

    My suggestion to you would be to pop into your local Zegna Store and have a look at what they've got to offer.

    Regarding the 'Bay, it's really hard to guage prices. I've paid $700 for a used Zegna suit, but I've also paid the same for a new one.

    I would say, in my humble opinion, that You could be paying up to $1000 for a New with Tags offering from a reputable Zegna seller.

    That's all I can offer at the moment.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Clint

    Speak for yourself Cool Breeze [​IMG] . We've got a little bit of sun over here at present (UK), but I'm pretty confident that this won't last, so Cashmere may come in handy in the next month or so.

    Cheers

    I have read through the posts and wanted to see if I understand the labels. Specifically I am looking at this suit http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=017
    From the interior tag (and the fact the pants are not unhemmed) it seems the suit is not current, correct? If so, does anyone have an educated guess how hold the suit is or an opinion on it? Thanks.

    You are correct, the suit isn't from the current Zegna label. I am unsure, but I would imagine that the suit is between 4 and 8 years old. However, there will be others who would be better able to provide an accurate estimate.

    The suit's ok, but I doubt that I'd pay that much for a suit that old. However, the suit appears to be new, so if you like it, then why not get it?

    Good luck

    What he said, but do make sure if you can that it fits.

    Is there a return policy?

    Thanks guys. It must be new old stock. The fact that the pants are hemmed makes be think Saks must have had a buyer that flaked on them. The measurements look good with the expception of the sleeves, those would need to be lengthened. There isn't a return policy listed though.

    Hi, I suggest that you ask the Seller and express any concerns you have up front.

    Good luck and let me know how you get on.

    Extremely helpful thread. Query - I saw a Zegna label with "RH7K" in the box labelled "family group" below. Any idea if (i) its authentic and (ii) what it signifies?
    thx




    To the best of my knowledge, this is the current fabric tag and has been for a bout 5 or so years. I have not bought much new from Zegna in the last few years.

    The box in the left defines the family group, the letter defines the fabric range.

    Hi. I've got a very limited knowledge with Zegna. However, is there any way that you could provide a picture of the label?

    Is it a current one (such as Zegnamtl posted)?

    Thanks

    Thanks - but I posted a separate thread (with label shot) and got some feedback that it is legit. I'd still like to figure out the code, however. Thread is at:http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=83696


    Label shot is attached.

    Hi, I've only just been informed via email that you posted.

    I really cannot help you on this topic. I looked at 3 different Zegna jackets with the latest label (I'll have a look at some of my other jackets tomorrow) and each one of them had a different designator.

    Two of them had similar codes to the label you've provided.

    One jacket was a Trefeo, one a 15 milmil 15 and one pure cashmere.

    Could it be some sort of location identifier?

    If you wish I could tell you codes of mine.

    Sorry that I cannot be of any further assistance.

    Clint

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I've bought this shirt off ebay and do not know if it's authentic because I havn't seen the label here.

    Appears to be an older Zegna mainline label. I have some older items (1980s) which have this label. Seems authentic.

    Yes, it's real. Probably b/w 5-10 yrs old. The knitwear labels are different. I think this thread focused on suit and coat labels.

    Just bought a Zegna Suit and instead of a number or letter to denote some level/type of fabric there is a (+) . Any idea what this signifies?
