    1250 as a price point?? ...must be Z Zegna.

    I happened to buy two of these suits the other day. The prices retailed for $1199 for Saks, marked down to $699 at a local Off 5th outlet store, and an additional 25% off to honor their "MORE" event. The price of each suit came out to around $525....oh and one more thing....they had a Buy 1, Get 1 Free deal.

    I picked up 2 EZ for Saks suits for $525. Bad deal?

    What does a F next to the size mean? For example 50F?

    It's the spot I'd expect a R for regular or L for long. The shop clerk claimed it was a MTM that wasn't picked up but there was no Su Misura label.

    So far I've seen this on both Milano and Couture.

    I think C is for sample.

    Thank you for creating this thread, I'm learning a lot from it. I am a new poster and am at the beginning of my learning stage in terms of "mens style"

    I purchased a Zegna suit and am hoping that it is not a knock-off. Shown are pictures of the inside jacket label. If anyone can help tell me what these labels mean I would be very greatful.

    Thanks to anyone that can help.

    oh.... I paid $450 for the suit. Is that the correct price point for this suit?

    Made with Zegna cloth not made by Zegna.

    $450 for a new suit that fits you and you like isn't out of line.

    Would love to see the same analysis applied to Zegna's ties.

    Thread necromancy to see if anyone ever did this - would help out considerably in dating!

    +1 on this question. It's from an overcoat, if that helps.

    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?

    I just saw a label like this - with a "+" intead of a letter. Does anybody know what it signifies or where it falls in the fabric hierarchy?

    On this suit, I assume by the label that it's just the cloth, not the manufacture, that is Zegna? http://cgi.ebay.com/E-ZEGNA-Suit-42-...ht_1208wt_1139
    The dark red label is the "Zegna Cloth" label. No matter how blurry its easy to tell because its the only label that looks like that. If they didn't provide a picture of the label you could still tell by the fact that they emphasize CLOTH by capitalizing it in the title of the auction

    Bumping an old thread.

    I found a Zegna of unknown lineage and was wondering if someone could provide more information.

    The label says Ermenegildo Zegna MultiSeason and the tag has ZHQ for the family group. The label looks closest to the mainline EZ Summer Trofeo. Is there anything hidden/bad that I should know about this line, or is it good to go?

    Thanks!
