The made-to-measure experience means our customer can select the right fabric, with the right treatment, for his specific tastes and purpose. The client can choose from over 400 types of fabric unchanged from year to year, with another 250 that change from season to season. The fabrics are available in a wide range of designs, from classic twill to grisaille, and pinstripe to Prince of Wales check.

 

Unlike any other menswear brand, Ermenegildo Zegna is a completely vertically integrated company. We pay special care and attention to each stage of preparing each roll of fabric: from the farms in Australia where our merino wool sheep graze to our finishing mills in Trivero.

And if our customers want something particularly special, they can even commission a specific weave to be created in the Lanificio Zegna wool mill in Trivero, Northern Italy.

 

The made to measure client has the choice of many different fabrics, each one with its own qualities. The newcomer to Zegna may want to start with a classic Ermenegildo Zegna fabric. Here is a selection of some of these incredible fabrics, the fabrics that made Ermenegildo Zegna famous.

HIGH PERFORMANCE

For your summer suits, choose High Performance. The development of High Performance reinvented wool as a summer fabric. Made of high-twist superfine yarns, it is lightweight, wrinkle-resistant and holds its shape. Perfect for warm climates.

TROFEO

One of our most famous and versatile woolen weaves. Trofeo is made from the best Australian superfine merino wool and is characterised by its very long, soft and superfine fibres that make it a popular choice for suiting and casualwear.

VELLUS AUREUM

The rare Trofeo Vellus Aureum fabric is something truly exquisite. Every year Ermenegildo Zegna selects the finest fleeces from the best merino sheep farms in the world. This raw material, only available in limited quantities, is used to make just 60 made-to-measure suits in Vellus Aureum fabric each year.

VICUÑA

The rarest, finest fibre in the world, spun from the fleece of the Vicuna, who live wild in the Andes mountains. Vicuna are native to South America, where their fleece is called the "fibre of the gods". In the Inca civilisation, vicuña fabrics were reserved for their kings. 

 

By 1965 there were only 5,000 living specimens, but following successful breeding and cultivation, their numbers have grown. Zegna Group is one of the few companies authorise to use vicuna, under control of the CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species).
