TWO WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS AND I AM DONE SHOPPING !! WHOOO HOOO ! FEELING EXHAUSTED FROM THE PAST MONTHS OF HUSTLE AND BUSTLE, I PLOPPED MY BODY INTO MY COMPUTER CHAIR AND TURNED IT ON. HMMMM, I THOUGHT, NOW WHAT DO I DO THAT MY SHOPPING IS ALL OVER WITH. I FELT A SENSE OF LOSS. AFTER ALL BUYING GIFTS FOR MY LOVED ONES IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO. I DECIDED TO GO ONTO "OVERSTOCK.COM" AND CHECK ON THE STATUS OF MY PLACED ORDERS. I GOT A LITTLE SIDETRACKED AND FOUND MYSELF ON THE MENS PAGES SCROLLING THROUGH THE MOST EXPENSIVE AND GORGEOUS NECK TIES (that I was unable to purchase for my husband). I FOUND THAT I JUST ENJOY PICKING OUT A CERTAIN TIE AND THEN FINDING THE PERFECT DRESS SHIRT , USUALLY PINSTRIPPED WITH FRENCH CUFFS ...(then I can buy a new set of cuff links for Mike). I HAD A WHOLE NEW OUT FIT , INCLUSING DRESS PANTS, SHOES AND A BELT FROM ITALY WHEN I SAW A PICTURE IN MY MIND OF A CHILDHOOD MEMORY. MY MOM USED TO TAKE MY TWIN SISTER AND I TO THE GROSSE POINTE VILLAGE OR TO THE "HILL" TO GO WINDOW SHOPPING . USUALLY IT WAS SNOWING, CHRISTMAS CAROLS WERE PLAYING OVER THE SPEAKERS AND THE LITTLE VILLAGE ALL A GLOW WITH TINSEL AND TWINKLY LIGHTS. THE STORES WERE OPEN LATE BECAUSE IT WAS NEAR CHRISTMAS. EVERY YEAR I WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO PEERING THROUGH GLASS WINDOWS AT THE CAREFULLY CREATED DISPLAYS OF CLOTHING ALL A GLOW WITH WHITE TWINKLE LIGTHS AND SPLASHES OF BRIGHT RED SCARVES OR TIES AND ONCE I RECALL SEEING A BRIGHT RED WOOL MENS BLAZER A MANICAN WAS SPORTING. USUALLY THERE WOULD BE THE MANICAN WEARING A DARK NAVY WOOL BLAZER WITH BRASS BUTTONS AND AN EMBROIDERED SCHOOL INSIGNIA ON THE LEFT OF THE LAPAL. THEN IT CAME TO ME ! I HAD NOT EVER BOUGHT MY HUSBAND A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS BLAZER TO TOP OFF THE DRESS SLACKS OF GRAY, THE HAND MADE ITALIAN BELT, THE CORDIVAN WING TIPPED DRESS SHOES, THE RED AND BLUE THIN PIN STRIPPED SHIRT WITH FRENCH CUFFS AND OF COURSE SPARKLING CUFF LINKS AND THE PERFECTLY COLOR COORDINATED TIE THAT I HAD PURCHASED FOR HIM THIS YEAR. I HAD FORGOT ...ABOUT THE GROSSE POINTE NAVY WOOL BLAZER THAT I WOULD SEE EACH CHRISTMAS PEERING THROUGH GLASS WINDOWS PRETENDING TO BE SHOPPING...AND HOLDING ON TO MY MOMS HAND. HOW COULD I HAVE EVER LEFT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF A MANS DRESS CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY OUTFIT. THE CAREFULLY CREATED LOOK THAT MY HUSBAND WOULD SPORT AT EVERY VISIT TO A FRIENDS OR RELATIVES HOME FOR CHRISTMAS DINNER OR MAYBE JUST FOR HOT EGG NOG AND BRANDY....WITH THOSE HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS COOKIES DECORATED WITH CINNAMON CANDY , COLORED SPRINKLES OF SUGAR, TOPPING OFF THE WHITE CREAMY SWIRLING PUFF OF SOMEONES GREAT GRANDMOTHERS RECIPE FOR CHRISTMAS COOKIE FROSTING..RECIPE. I IMMEDIATELY TYPED IN "MENS CHRISTMAS NAVY BLUE WOOL BLAZER , GOLD OR BRASS BUTTONS, INSIGNIA" AND UP POPPED A PICTURE OF A "ZONETTIE-FERRECCI" DESIGNER NAVY BLUE WOOL BLAZER EVEN WITH BRASS BUTTONS! IT WAS PERFECT ! CHECKING OUT THE PRICE TAG BROUGHT ME SUCH JOY ...EXPECTING TO SEE THE UNAFFORDABLE, I SAW THE VERY VERY AFFORDABLE PRICE TAG OF JUST OVER $80.00 ..I QUICKLY SCROLLED DOWN , FOUND MIKES SIZE, CLICKED ON A 38 REGULAR, COLOR/NAVY BLUE AND CLICKED ON "BASKET" !! NOW, THIS SPECIAL GIFT HAS NOT ARRIVED YET SO CHECK BACK AFTER CHRISTMAS AND I WILL LEAVE AN UPDATED REVIEW FOR ALL OF YOU TO READ...MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM ITALIA. .JANET DELVECCHIO.
I purchased this suit for my son to wear to a formal dance and then regularly to church on Sundays. He wears size 32 pants, which is the size that comes with the 38 suit coat that we ordered. They fit him perfectly! We ordered a Tazio slim-fit suit, too, in order to compare the two suits. The Tazio happened to come in the wrong size (40L and size 34W pants), and he could barely get those pants on him and done up! So the Tazio suit is sized way too small. But this Zonettie suit is sized perfectly and has the modern slim fit that the kids these days love. The "milano blue" is actually on the gray side, which is perfect since his date will have a black and white dress. The peak lapel is also a more modern and formal look, and he loves it!
This is the 3rd Ferrecci suit I have ordered off of here, I have to say I am always impressed. These new "Zonettie" series suits are even better quality than the "Shiny" suits I purchased previously. Can't wait to add more of these to my collection.
Jacket a little tight, pant legs are super slim, i guess have to lose some weight. But material, fit, workmanship is excellent...My family had a men's clothing store - truly impressed.
