    First post. I'm a total noob. Got a Zegna on eBay for $135. Worn 8 times. Was represented as Z Zegna and trim fit. Just received. Tag says Ermenegildo Zegna and is made in Switzerland. Drop 7. Also pleated. Pants not slim fit at all. Not what I expected, but I'm thinking I may have gotten a better suit than I thought. Tailor says I can get pleats removed and taken in for $60 and will be fine. Should I just shut my mouth and enjoy the suit or send it back?

    Thanks.

    I guess I should add that I'm a 42 jacket, 31 pants and am about 6' 170 pounds.

    If the jacket fits if might be a win on your part as Z is Zegnas entry level.
    I've has pleats taken out of pants; as long as you use a good tailor you should be good. Worst case, you end up with an odd jacket -- and at sub 150, that's a good deal for EZ.

    Yeah it really depends on your personal preference. Obviously you are entitled to a full refund since the seller failed to accurately describe the item. The only question is, would you pay $195 (the price + alterations cost) for the suit? If so, keep it -- that's a pretty sick (no, amazingly sick) price for a Zegna suit.

    But don't keep it if it doesn't fit as you'd hoped in the jacket. If the jacket is off, especially in the shoulders or the armholes, there's not too much a tailor can do for you.
