Ermenegildo Zegna Suits for Men

Believe it or not, men’s fashion designers are already prepping for next fall and winter.

This was evident recently in Milan with a series of 2012 fashion shows, which found many designers going for more conservative apparel. This included Ermenegildo Zegna, who opted to appeal to the traveling businessmen with alpaca parkas, natural shouldered jackets and long, straight pants.

If you’re not aware of who Ermengildo Zegna, and his luxury-suit company, here’s a brief background.

The luxury suit-maker began when 20-year old Ermenegildo Zegna took over his family’s small wool-producing business in Trivero, Italy in 1910. At the time, the men’s luxury suit market was dominated by the British. Zegna set out across the world to not only emulate his English counterparts, but also surpass them.

By the beginning of the 1960s, Zegna had won recognition for his high-quality and innovative fabrics. After Zegna’s death in 1966, his sons took over the company. However, they remained committed to their father’s tradition of quality, yet became determined to establish the Zegna name beyond fabrics production. While the company continued to act as a major supplier of high-quality fabric, they also began producing their own clothing.

In the 1970s, Zegna established its own men’s collection, and by the year 2000, there were 300 Zegna retail locations worldwide. Today,Ermenegildo Zegna is the world’s leading luxury men’s suit maker. They produce more than 350,000 finished suits, and another two million shirts, ties, sportswear, and accessories annually.

If you’re looking to purchase a classy, luxury-suit, than Ermenegildo Zegna is the maker you need. Here’s a number of Zegna suits that you should consider for the upcoming season. They may be pricey, but they’re worth every dollar.
