THE FIRST FITTING
Y
our Ermenegildo Zegna tailor will meet you at your convenience – at home, at work or in store, and take you through the options of fabric and style, as well as helping you choose what specific garment it is you require. After taking your measurements, the tailor will send his order back to our headquarters in northern Italy, where the fabric for your suit will be collected.

THE PATTERN CUTTING

The fabric you requested from the Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero, northern Italy has been delivered to Zegna’s pattern cutters. Today they will cut the fabric for your garment. After the cutting, the many pieces of fabric – a typical jacket may have up to 100 in total – is tagged with the specific office details of the customer, then passed on to the next expert. The journey has begun.

THE STITCHING

Your garment is taking shape. Each piece is being worked on by a specialist tailor, together they start stitching the garment together. It’s now that the details that require extra-special care and attention are now hand stitched.

“We hand stitch many parts of the garment. For example, in Ermenegildo Zegna’s made-to-measure jackets, the seam between sleeve and body is done by hand. Hand stitching is the only way of ensuring the correct tension in the stitches is achieved.”

THE PRESSING

Now, the important process of pressing. For a suit jacket, there are approximately 30 different pressing stages. This process ensures the garment retains its structure throughout its life.

THE FINAL INSPECTION

Your Su Misura item receives intense care and attention throughout the tailoring process, but no check is more rigorous than the final inspection which happens prior to your name label being sewn in. This garment will soon be ready for you to wear.
