    Too vague of a question

    sorry, if it was too vague just wanted to know if paying 440 usd for 1.5 meters of zegna trofeo fabric without tailoring was a legitmate price to pay or if that is absurdly expensive.

    thanks

    I think you would need about 3-4 meters for a suit so you looking at least $880 for the material alone. How much would your tailor charge? If they chrge $600 or less then I say itis a good deal.

    My only issue with this line of thought is that your tailor should not be cheaper than the material he is working with.

    For Trofeo, Chan would charge ~$1700 for a 2p suit. Maybe that will give you a gauge for a final product.
