Zanetti suits are created by a company headquartered in Los Angeles, California. They have been around for over twenty years and are licensed to create suits for a variety of suit companies.
The suits were traditionally all made in Italy, but are now made in Italy as well as China. Some people feel that this has hurt their quality, but this may be more the perception rather than the reality of things.
While some companies who have moved operations to China have suffered in quality, this certainly isn’t true for all of them.
Zanetti Suits Style
This year’s line up seems to be made up mostly of two button suits. They have a wide array of plaids as well as solids and pinstripes.
Interestingly enough, these suits seem to have a more “urban feel” to them. Many of the suit models look like the urban style suits you would see from designers like Steve Harvey.
Virgin wools and super 120’s are typical fabrics used to make this suit. However, you’ll find that most, if not all of the suits made by Zanetti are fused.
I also wouldn’t expect lots of hand stitching from a suit that you can buy from Costco.
Classic colors with powerful pinstripes dominate this line. Solids are less common but the solid wearer should be able to find what he’s looking for.
2011 update on color
It seems that the brand has branched out into a wide range of interesting color choices. This being said, there are still plenty of suits made in traditional colors for folks looking to buy this suit for work.
These suits seem to be sold all over the place these days and the prices range dramatically. You can pay anywhere from two hundred to eight hundred dollars for this suit.
If you decide to buy one of these suits, I would shop around for a little while. You are liable to find a very good deal, just by doing a thorough Internet search.
Zanetti seems to be branching out again and Zanetti suits can be found in a wide variety of styles.
You’ll notice that although Zanetti has swung back to a more traditional look, they have also branched out with their use of colors and design patterns.
The example below will help demonstrate what I mean by this.
Zanetti Suits Example
As you can see from this example, Zanetti is not afraid to make a suit that wouldn’t normally be worn to the office.
The cut of this suit is pretty traditional, but the color and styling make it more useful for a night out on the town, a wedding, or a party than for an office meeting.
In fact, the jacket even has a ticket pocket built into it and I could imagine this gentleman heading out to see a Broadway play or an upscale ballet.
Also, the color strays from the typical navy blues, charcoal grays, and blacks that we might see in a business setting.
This isn’t to say that Zanetti is not making navy blue suits, it just means that this isn’t the only color suit that Zanetti is creating.
