Is that a s120's or s130's?
The suit I got is in the 'K' range on the inside tag. It also says 'su misura' but I got it OTR. It is an NWT suit and pants are unfinished.

Please profide me with more information.

I believe Trofeo is in the 130 range, although as well know Zegna refuses to give a super number because they posit that a cloth is more than just a micron measurement. Trofeo is also 8.5 oz, so be careful with the light fabric. I believe the Su Misura jackets are fully canvassed and are decently made. I've seen these jackets sold without the finishing, such as buttons and button holes sewn in, possibly in an attempt to give something similar to the oxxford system.

I believe all Zegna is fully canvassed except for the Z Zegna diffusion line.

They said it is about 17 micron. It is a very light fabric.

Su Misura

Su Misura is Italian for "your measurement". It appears you have bought a suit that someone had made for themselves and did not take. As far as whether it is 120's or 130's, who cares? There are four indicators of the quality of a fabric (diameter of a yarn, spin, weight, and the way it is woven). Just because it is super whatever does not mean it is an accurate gauge of quality. The trofeo fabrics are 250 grams. Zegna has three models that are available in MTM. They are Roma, Milano, and Travel. The Roma and Milano are full canvas and the Travel is a half canvas. I hope this helps.

No, the tags were still on it and the pants unfinished. I think I got an older suit that was meant to be 'su misura' but hasn't been altered because nobody took it. Anyway it fits me perfectly, maybe just a little tight on the chest. I got it for a little more then 500 euros which is a true Christmas steal in my opinion.
Besides the same suit was offered in another size.
