The New York Times T Magazine pays a visit to legendary Italian suit maker Ermenegildo Zegna in celebration of the label's 100-year anniversary. The suit maker has designed a limited edition collection of suits woven with the world's highest quality merino wools with tiny fibers weighing less than a human hair. (Take that Chris March.) These custom made-to-order suits are clearly for the very discerning (and rich) shopper retailing at $22,500 for one of the limited edition 20 suits. For that price tag, we're hoping the suits are made with ultra light fibers of gold. [NYT]
